Learning & Development
In today’s dynamic Knowledge Economy, it is imperative for organisations to build a high and quality robust Human Capital talent pool that provides a sustained Competitive Advantage. YES BANK emphasizes on a Knowledge driven approach with the objective of focusing on capability development, and becoming aspired as a ‘Preferred Employer of Choice’ for the brightest and best quality Human Capital.
Key Learning & Development, Talent Management and Leadership capability building solutions are designed, developed and delivered under the aegis of YES SCHOOL OF BANKING (YSB). YSB was institutionalized in 2007 with a vision of creating a Centre of Excellence to assess, stimulate, support, and deploy innovative approaches to augment Human Capital by equipping Executives with skills and knowledge that are based on its strategic business goals as well as specific job requirements.”
YSB Learning Solutions focus on the ‘edge’ of traditional practices and approaches. Such ‘edge’ endeavours have some important characteristics:
- Nimble and having the potential to scale
- Differentiated from core practices, and aligned to impact tangible business metrics
- Intensely aspirational, motivated by an unusually strong sense of unwavering commitment, speed, execution and sense of urgency
This third characteristic is the most important of all. Only this kind of intensity, born of a desire to lead within a ‘symbolic’ frame can bring about cultural transformation and the ‘leapfrog’ innovations that are truly breathtaking.
In addition to institutionalizing Learning & Development (L&D) initiatives in the Bank, YSB further leads UNIVERSITY & SCHOOL RELATIONSHIP MANAGEMENT (USRM) which plays a pivotal role in building the YES BANK brand as an ‘Employer of Choice’ amongst the best institutions in India and Ivy League Schools overseas.
Apart from the wide array of L&D programs that YSB facilitates, some unique methodologies have been created and executed to ensure faster and better access to learning initiatives.
Learning & Development Deployment Methodologies:

This unique methodology ensures that all YES BANKers get adequate training across all locations in the fastest possible manner. Apart from this we also have External Trainers to keep us in keeping track with new methodologies.
