In its endeavor to build the workforce of the future, HDFC Bank has launched the Future Bankers program. This program, in partnership with Manipal Global Academy of BFSI, involves a full-time residential course wherein new graduates can develop into highly-trained and well-groomed customer-facing executives.
For HDFC Bank, this program is a way to build a pipeline of highly qualified young executives and to ensure that the service provided by the bank across different branches and geographies maintains a high standard of quality, empathy, and efficiency.
During the first six months of the residential program, the graduates will receive their training at Manipal Global Academy of BFSI campus followed by a six-month-long internship with the bank. Armed with a post-graduate diploma certificate in Sales & Relationship Banking, these graduates will then be absorbed by different branches across the nation in the capacity of Personal Bankers. As per the town or city where the new graduates are posted, their starting salaries would be Rs. 4 Lakh per annum not including allowances.
This initiative falls in line with the HDFC Bank’s plan to hire 5,000 such experts within a period of three years.
The program is a competitive one wherein the applicants must undergo an online assessment and interview before they can join the campus. The shortlisted applicants can pay a course fee to the Manipal Global Academy of BFSI.
“We believe that customer experience will define the future of banking. Giving them a uniform yet high-quality experience across touchpoints is what will set a winner apart. The Future Bankers program will allow the bank to have at its disposal a cadre of highly-trained, well-rounded professionals,” said Vinay Razdan, Chief Human Resource Officer, HDFC Bank.
