People’s Bank is set to execute a Scientific Capacity Planning Study linked to Career & Succession Planning and a Two Way Performance Appraisals Mechanism, which was facilitated by MTI Consulting with the main objective of realigning the HR systems and appraisal process of the bank. This study was based on two of the Strategic Initiatives recommended in People’s Bank Strategic Plan for 2016 – 2020 (launched in 2015) which was also developed with MTI Consulting.
Chief Executive Officer and General Manager of People’s Bank, Mr. N. Vasantha Kumar stated: “MTI worked closely with People’s Bank in developing the Strategic Plan in 2015, and are very acquainted with the challenges faced by the Bank and its employees, relating in particular to customer service quality and human resources management. The intended study is a result of the outcome of the Bank’s Strategic Plan, which will lead to the implementation of two of the most important Strategic Initiatives identified using MTI’s 8S® Model relating to human resources. This study will involve the interactive engagement from all employees of the bank.”
