Kotak Mahindra Bank (Bangalore)

With one resume-match under our belts with Kotak Mahindra Bank, JobsForHer is ecstatic to have them on our portal and to have filled a position with them from our resume bank, so soon!

Kotak Mahindra Finance Co. was the first company in Indian banking history to convert to a bank. They are now the nation’s 4th largest private bank with a gender ratio of 81:19 (men to women).

They give preference to women employees applying for internal job postings in hitherto male-dominated frontline sales and collection jobs.

In FY 2011-12, the Bank launched the Kotak Probationary Officer (KPO) programme in partnership with Manipal University to train and groom talent before hiring them for various relationship and customer facing roles. In FY 2013-14, the Bank integrated its gender diversity agenda with the KPO programme by launching the first ‘all-women batch’ of the course.

An employee can choose to work for reduced work hours and part-time employment, for fixed tenure, which can later be converted into full-time employment after completion of a fixed tenure. To promote female employee growth in the organisation, the Bank extends flexi-working arrangements (part-time, work from home or work from nearest branch) on a case-to-case basis.

They have been all over the news lately for their sales having quadrupled during the festive season (pre-Diwali sales) compared to last year, and their commitment to continue to “invest heavily” in the Indian market. "‘We're really encouraged with what we are seeing, both on the customer side and the seller side. On the customer side, active customer accounts are up 230 per cent year-over-year. We are in the middle of the Diwali season that is going really well. Sales are 4x what they were last year,’" [Amazon Senior Vice-President and CFO Brian T Olsavsky] said on an investor call.[1]

Koove is an organized marketplace app for used goods. Their USP is the trusted network they have built for sellers and buyers. In other words, what AirBnB did to the sublet market space, Koove is doing to the "used goods sell market". Airbnb built a layer of trust for housing listings; Koove is doing that for used goods. They believe in the power of communities, and are built on the preexisting base of small and large communities, thereby enabling and empowering thousands of micro-entrepreneurs, and creating an ecosystem. Koove is making online shopping, social. Shopping has always been a social activity. We shop with friends and family. However, online shopping has hitherto been purely transactional. Koove is building buy/sell communities across the globe, socially! And, they are rehiring career-break women on the JFH portal for exciting, creative openings at their company!
