Each year, in support of our mission to be “your eye on the future,” the Equipment Leasing & Finance Foundation brings together a group of industry executives to form the Industry Future Council. The IFC is tasked with exploring trends, challenges and opportunities, and evaluating how these issues may impact the equipment leasing and ﬁnance business for years to come.
The annual IFC Report summarizes these discussions and attempts to bring into focus matters that equipment leasing and ﬁnance ﬁrms may want to consider as they plan for future growth. It is the hope of the Foundation that readers will beneﬁt from the insights of the IFC and use this report as a thought-provoking resource and planning tool. The 2022 report examines issues and best practices around hybrid work, recruiting, hiring, training, and leadership due to pandemic and related labor market disruptions.
