ICICI Bank today said it plans to increase headcount by up to 7,000 this financial year.
"We plan to hire around 5,000-7,000 people this fiscal. We have also declared bonus and increments for our employees," ICICI Bank Managing Director and CEO Chanda Kochhar told reporters after inaugurating the 2,000th branch of the largest private sector bank in Mumbai today.
ICICI Bank has become the first private sector bank to reach this milestone, giving it a wide distribution reach in the country, Kochhar said.
The bank plans to add more branches and ATMs in the current fiscal, she said.
"The inauguration of this 2,000th branch signifies our commitment to getting closer to our customers through an enhanced branch network. Our branches are well-equipped to address customer needs through a wide range of products and services. Our branches now have dedicated service area for privilege banking customers," she added.
The bank has 33 per cent branches in metro areas, 26 per cent in other urban areas and 41 per cent in semi-urban and rural areas.
