Elena spoke with FinanceFeeds Editor-in-Chief Nikolai Isayev about people management and recruitment – a topic that is not much talked about but is at the heart of any brokerage firm’s success.

Exness enjoys a legendary reputation of taking care of their own, going as far as giving away Mini Coopers for everyone. Last year, the broker gave a paid week off to employees on top of their contractualized vacation days.

If you take care of people, they will pay you back

The broker’s Chief People Officer made it clear none of that is strategy, but philosophy. All these initiatives are rooted in the belief that people are the most important element of the business.

“If we take care of people, make their life easier, they will pay you back with better performance and relations, and will stay with you”, Krutova stated, adding that cars, holidays, and other features are small pieces of the bigger picture, where the priorities are people development, well-being, and mental health.

Elena Krutova noted that the leadership at Exness never questioned this approach, so it must be bearing fruit. It is undeniable that this particular broker has become a favorite among FX and CFD professionals, regardless of the department, and the way the company treats people is certainly a good reason to join and stay with them.
