Attracting and retaining tech talent is top of mind for banks, financial services companies, and other leading Charlotte businesses. The city’s huge banking sector has helped lay the foundation in particular for jobs in financial technology, or fintech – and yet the labor market is competitive and turnover is high. How can Charlotte continue building (and growing) a tech ecosystem that benefits multiple industries and further establishes Charlotte as a tech innovation hub? 

  • What are companies doing to innovate?
  • How are businesses across multiple industries attracting and retaining talent in a hybrid work environment? 
  • What is drawing companies (and tech talent) to Charlotte and how do business leaders position themselves to benefit from the tech wave? 

Womble Bond Dickinson hosted a discussion on these important topics on July 14th. The event began with a brief networking reception, followed by an interactive panel session with Q&A. During the program, guests enjoyed a summer-inspired dinner with wine pairings (or mocktails).
