“When the COVID-19 pandemic struck in early 2020, the global banking industry had already been undergoing a massive change. Consumer needs were evolving rapidly, as people expected more from their online. banking services. As banks digitized their front end in response, they also established next-generation technology in the middle and back offices to drive cost efficiency and provide better services. All these changes had already brought talent as a key differentiators for the banks.

Financial leaders today face a pivotal moment as the outbreak of COVID-19 has brought several significant changes in the way businesschanges in the way business operations are carried out across the globe. Most responded to the COVID-19 pandemic without the luxury of time to consider implications on longer-term sustainability. Leaders now face operational and organizational decisions with profound implications for millions of Indians who are employed in the finance and insurance sectors prior to the outbreak – and for society at large.

The focus to date has been to provide essential services with sufficient attention to quality, customer experience, and risk control, all while caring for employees. These objectives are already interacting in non-obvious ways. The potential for significant additional change remains, happening rapidly and in unpredictable ways depending on factors like disease trajectory, government and regulattrajectory, government and regulatory moves, and the economy.

We expect four types of actions will help financial institutions best respond to the workforce challenges ahead. Companies should commit to their principles on employee well-being, introduce ways of working that will endure beyond the crisis, re-imagine performance management and incentives, and maintain cultural hallmarks threatened by the pandemic.

The choices they make today will define the industry’s approach for years to come, with a generational impact on how it cares for its workforce.” – Yeshasvini Ramaswamy, CEO, Great Place to Work®, India.
