Performance Drivers in the Australian Banking and Financial Industry
Talent management is a way banks acquire competitive advantage. Practices such as personality profiling with effective knowledge-based productivity and the application of high-performance work systems help to set a company apart from its competition and maintain this competitive advantage.
This book provides an in-depth look at the relationship between personality types and individual-level performance in knowledge-based environments, through cases in Australia’s banking and finance sector. This book also examines how high-performance workplace systems influence individual performance in relation to productivity through a multi-level analysis of micro- and meso-level factors.
The findings in this book have relevant implications not only for the Australian system but also for other banking and financial service contexts outside of Australia.
