BFSB is set to launch its latest “People Power” initiative – The Bahamas Millennials Society, a networking and mentoring club of financial services industry millennial workers – within the first half of this year.
BFSB CEO Aliya Allen says, *“It is an indisputable fact that one has to capture both the hearts and minds of the millennial worker. It cannot be business as usual. We look to our member firms to support this initiative, fully recognising that this is the generation that will drive the sector forward in the coming years.”*
A key component of the membership benefits will be regular meetings to promote networking amongst the millennials and mentor presentations on topics of interest to this generation of workers.
