The Treasury Leader's Responsibility: Building a High-Performing Team

As a treasury leader, you understand the importance of effective cash flow management, risk mitigation and strategic financial planning. But your role goes beyond these core responsibilities. Building a high-performing team is fundamental to your department’s success. This blog explores key considerations for treasury leaders in building a strong talent pool.

Proactive Succession Planning

While internal recruiters can facilitate the initial stages of hiring, the responsibility for maintaining a robust talent pipeline ultimately falls on your shoulders. Succession planning is a critical aspect of this responsibility. By anticipating potential departures and identifying the skills required for future growth, you can proactively source and develop talent internally. This proactive approach ensures a smooth transition and minimises disruption.

Build a well-rounded Treasury Team

While technical skills are essential, focusing solely on resumes creates a narrow lens. Look for candidates who have complementary skills and personality traits that contribute to a high-functioning team. A strong leader may need a detail-oriented teammate to ensure a balanced and efficient operation. Prioritising cultural fit alongside technical competence will encourage collaboration, build team spirit and ultimately drive departmental success.

Expand your Search

Relying solely on internal recruiters or external agencies introduces an element of risk. To mitigate this, explore alternative recruitment channels. Industry conferences, professional organisations and targeted online platforms can be valuable sources of highly skilled individuals. Proactive outreach demonstrates initiative and commitment to strengthening your team.

Strategies to Retain Your Top Treasury Talent

Attracting talent is only the beginning. Retaining high performers is just as important. Prioritise professional development opportunities to enhance their skills and keep them abreast of evolving industry trends. Clearly defined career paths provide motivation and demonstrate a commitment to employee growth. In addition, fostering a culture of open communication, appreciation and work-life balance creates a positive work environment, promotes employee satisfaction and reduces turnover.
