There are two pretty obvious things that underlie the mortgage industry’s recruiting efforts. First, the competition is intense. The unemployment rate is at a record low and mortgage companies are competing with some of the biggest brands in the world for the best people. In addition, most people — even those who ended up in the industry — don’t grow up dreaming about getting into mortgage finance.
Despite these obstacles, lenders, servicers and other companies in the mortgage ecosystem are fighting the good fight to attract and retain top talent. HousingWire created engage.talent to support those efforts, gathering experts to share the best tools and strategies to succeed at filling some of the most important roles in mortgage.
The goal of engage.talent in Dallas on Feb. 6 is to bring more collaboration and knowledge sharing into the recruiting and retention conversation.
Companies in HousingWire’s Talent Leadership Council are committed to attracting, developing and retaining top talent. It’s going to take leaders, like those on the Talent Leadership Council, to not only help the industry compete in the battle for talent, but transform mortgage finance into a field that top people choose to comes to first.
