The financial sector is a key growth sector in Westchester and Putnam Counties. Financial services is defined as insurance, securities, commodity contracts, and other financial investments, real estate and related activities.
The Financial Services Sector Partnership is developing a skilled workforce pipeline so that where worker shortages exist, employers have a pool of qualified job candidates from which to recruit and hire. The partnership focuses on building a pool of qualified finance workers through education and training to maximize productivity, strengthen job retention, and promote career advancement within Westchester and Putnam County’s financial industry.
The Westchester-Putnam One Stop Employment Center, in partnership with Concorde Personnel and Key Bank, is leading the sector partnership. The work of the partners is to engage with employers in the region in order to identify the workforce gaps and needs that exist to determine the education and training programs that are necessary to meet the needs of employers.
Sector partnership activities:
Customized recruitment: A group of financial services and insurance companies met to determine workforce needs.
The needs identified include seeking assistance with recruitment and assessment of possible job candidates and seeking sales training for staff. As a result the Westchester-Putnam Onestop has undertaken two customized recruitment activities and referred individuals to employers who are seeking new hires.
