Great place to work along with work life balance maintenance
It was in my last organization, namely, Axis Bank Limited, I was handling profile of Corporate Salary Manager with almost 200 corporates mapped to me. One among those was Indian Army, where soldiers most of the time were seen on border with no internet/Wi-Fi available except on cell phones and they move from one place to another and seldom get time to visit bank branch during working hours in regard to money transfer for there families. So, they requested bank to increase the working hours for them else they will be moving to competition bank as the same was not possible as per RBI guidelines. To give them a resolution, I along with my team promoted IMT (Instant money Transfer).
IMT is an innovative domestic money remittance service that allows you to send money to a receiver only by using the receiver's mobile number. The receiver can withdraw money from an Axis Bank ATM with or without using a card. The receiver receives all the details required for withdrawal of the cash on his or her mobile phone.
Now, with this facility they can send money to their family through mobile itself at that too at any time. This product has helped me in increasing cross sell/up selling with many products like family accounts Mortgages, D mat/ OTR/ Trading accounts, Insurance - General & Life, Mutual Funds, Gold bars and many more.
By this, I learned that nothing is impossible and every problem has a solution and where there is a will there is a way.
A typical day at work starts with morning con-call which covers the up trends in the market, business numbers, focus for the week, followed by analyzing MIS & Business Reports to understand sales trends, identify grey areas & resolve issues accordingly. Major portion of the day goes into conceptualizing & driving rolled out campaigns, prepare MIS reports, liaison with other departments, Central office & teams for synergy & activation of channel. I am also responsible for biweekly coaching & mentoring sessions of Relationship Managers & Service Relationship Managers, driving recruitment & selection of manpower as per shortfall.
Key learnings of my job are: Business Management, Clients servicing & relationship management, People management, conducting the full recruitment cycle/ HR Management, Administration & Event Management, Banking & Financial operations, MIS Insights, Advanced Excel skills.
The top management is very supportive and easily approachable, always helping to take on new challenges, learn new strategies & growing vertically in the organization.
The workplace has a friendly culture, with everyone trying to support each other.
The most enjoyable part of the job is you get to meet & interact with a lot of people during the day & this helps to learn a lot of things & understand different perspective to one situation.
The hardest part of the job would be the long working hours.
