Banking on its Human Capital
Yes Bank was incorporated in 2003. Since it started its banking operations in 2004, the bank had experienced unprecedented growth in the Indian banking sector. Analysts felt that this was a significant achievement for a bank which had started late in a highly crowded market when compared to other new age private sector banks. The bank had charted a strategy that helped it differentiate itself from others in the banking sector. It differentiated itself from other players in the industry through its unique 'knowledge banking approach', emphasis on technology, and human resources. The knowledge banking approach was its main pillar of differentiation and, using this, it provided specialized services to various sunrise industries through domain experts.
