ISSUE CONCERNING HUMAN RESOURCES -
October 4th, 2010
While technology and product innovation are vital , the soft issues concerning the human capital of the banks are more vital. The corporate initiatives need to focus on bringing around a frontline revolution. Though the changes envisaged are seen at the frontline, the initiatives have to really come from the ‘back end’. The top management of banks must be seen as practicing what preaches. The initiatives should aim at improved delivery time and methods of approach. There is an imperative need to create a perception that the banks are market-oriented.
This would mean a lot of proactive steps on the part of bank management which would include empowering staff at various levels, devising appropriate tools for performance measurement bringing about a transformation – ‘can’t do ‘to’ can do’ mind-set change from restrictive practices to total flexible work place, say.
By having universal tellers, bringing in managerial controlling work place, provision of intensive training on products and processes, emphasizing, coaching etiquette, good manners and best behavioural models, formulating objective appraisals, bringing in transparency, putting in place good and acceptable reward and punishment system, facilitating the placement of young /youthful staff in front-line defining a new role for front-line staff by projecting them as sellers of products rather than clerks at work and changing the image of the banks from a transaction provider to a solution provider.
