Mumbai: IDFC Bank Ltd. has been recognised as one of the ‘Top Companies – Where India wants to work now, 2017’ by professional social network LinkedIn.
LinkedIn’s methodology takes into consideration three main pillars to uncover the companies its members are most interested in now: job applications, both views and applies on postings; engagement, with employees as well as with the company directly; and retention, how many employees are sticking around for a year or longer.
IDFC Bank has marked its debut this year at rank 17 and is the only bank to feature in the list of 25 companies spanning 10 industries.
IDFC Bank, which has looked at stepping away from age-old conventions, has adopted a differentiated strategy of talent attraction, retention and engagement. The Bank’s unique initiatives are in the areas for Employee Experience, Culture, Capability and digitization of processes. Its ‘Twitter Resume’ campaign last year, which enabled potential candidates to tweet resumes in 140 characters, helped the Bank to reach out to a wider pool of talent using social channels.
IDFC Bank launched on October 1, 2015, and has 76 branches across rural and urban India. It currently has a 4000-strong employee base and is looking to strengthen its team further by hiring primarily for front-line and operations roles.
