What is Branch redesign?

After shifting of most of the back office and operational functions of branch to various CPCs and administrative units, it is envisaged that branch will be a leaner outfit handling only sale & service functions. Such branches are called Core Sales and Service Branches (Core SSB) and shall fulfil all banking needs of a customer. There are two other Branch formats Core SSB with Affluent Module and Core SSB with SME Module, the details of which shall be discussed in next slides. The Branch Redesign involves two types of changes in a branch. The first is change in roles of various functionaries of the branch and the second is change in internal layout to facilitate functioning of role holders of a redesigned branch. The Branch Redesign aims at providing multiple benefits to both customers as well as staff. The benefits are shown in next slide in a graphic format. Next

BRANCH REDESIGN AIMS AT PROVIDING MULTIPLE BENEFITS TO BOTH THE CUSTOMERS AS WELL AS THE STAFFBenefits to the bank Benefits to the customer Increase in customer area Grahak Mitra to help customer navigate a branch Single touch point for sales and service transactionsReduction in wait time for customer in the branch from an average of ~15 mins to ~6 mins

Multiskilling of people to remove slack and balance work load in branch Branch able to operate normally despite occasional shortage due to leave etc.

Exclusive time budgeted in sales roles to do proactive selling

Branch focused on sales and service

Clarity in roles Branch Manager freed up to focus on sales with the creation of the Service Manager role

Availability of alternate channels enables customer to perform basic transactions 24*7 Next2

Three key principles have been used in redesigning branches, the first is clear communication of the role with minimal variation as detailed below: Fewer category of role-holders with multi-tasking Single Window Operators (SWOs) to handle all service transactions where transaction time is of prime importance Customer Relation Officers (CROs - a new role created, as detailed in subsequent slides) to handle transactions with significant interaction and opportunity to cross-sell Service Manager (upgraded role of Accountant) in charge of the Service Section of the Branch. Case Managers added if the work of Service Manager exceeds one man-day. Full time Cash officer in currency chest branches. In hand balance branches, role to be played by the Senior SWO Grahak Mitra as first touch point for customerNext3

The second principle is increased focus on sales as detailed below:

Branch Manager to build relationships with topcustomers of branch and spend around 60% of his time in proactive sales and marketing activities, in addition to acquisition of new valuable customers CROs to spend ~20% of their time in proactive sales and marketingNext4

Third principle used in redesigning branches is non customer-facing activities migrated out of the branches as detailed below: Apart from the activities migrated to CPCs the AGM Operations (a new role created in Zonal Office) will pick up administrative activities from branch (e.g., generation of reports, staff service records, leave records), in due course. Activities will be performed by a Virtual Back Office for the time beingNext5

Can you tell me about Core SSB with Affluent Module?

This branch will have the same format as that of core sales and service branch with addition of an Affluent Module. This module will be required at a branch serving affluent/mass affluent people predominantly. This category of customers prefer relationship based banking. Affluent module Relationship Manager (Personal Banking) (RM-PB) will own 200-300 high value customers of the branch. He will be outbound for about 60% of the time, as he has to meet select top customers/ potential customers at the place of their choice. He will endeavor for up-selling/ cross-selling of retail assets, mutual funds, insurance etc. in his meetings with the customers. For providing services to the visiting high value customers a separate area within the Core SSB will be created, where RM (PB) and one support staff to RM-PB will be serving Next 10

Will there be any difference in products and services offered by Core SSBs? The affluent module will also provide Investment Advisory services and will focus on marketing of products for Assets, Investment, Insurance, Mutual Funds, Credit Cards, Demat accounts etc., besides the usual products of the Bank. Wherever, there is enough potential for NRI business one CRO will be assigned specially for this business with the required support staff. Range of FOREX services available at the module would depend upon authorization level of the branch.Next11
