Helping FIs help the world: ESG and BPO

ESG has become an increasingly important factor for investors over the years, but, recently, it’s become a top priority for customers, and even employees, too. And with this increased pressure to be seen to be doing good, financial institutions are looking for new ways to improve their environmental, social, and governance credentials. However, finding ways to boost these efforts aren’t always easy wins and organizations need help to work out where improvements can be made – and this is where transformative business process optimization can help.In this episode of Financial Futures, we learn how transformative BPO is helping financial institutions not only to streamline their processes and find new efficiencies, but also how it is facilitating organizations’ ability to meet their own ESG goals. We debunk some of the myths around BPO and we explore a real-life example of one institution’s journey to better ESG through Transformative BPO.Joining us today are sales lead of business process transformation and resourcing at FIS, Simon Penny, and SVP of banking and payments Europe at FIS, Silvia Mensdorff-Pouilly. We discuss why ESG is so top-of-mind for everyone from investors to customers, and we reveal why good ESG starts with a thorough self-assessment of processes.We’ll also ask: How do ESG and transformative BPO go hand-in-hand?
