HÀ NỘI — Commercial banks have consistently recruited thousand of new employees, especially for retail banking services, to meet business targets in 2017.
According to reports from 13 banks, the personnel scale increased by 1,035 people in the first quarter.
Nearly half of the total comprised VPBank’s newly-recruited employees. Specifically, VPBank recruited 489 people, increasing the total number of employees until the end of the first quarter to nearly 10,000.
VIB newly recruited 316 employees, compared with 260 employees in ACB. The number of newly-recruited employees in Sacombank and Vietcombank was 215 and 190, respectively.
Some banks, however, witnessed a decline in the number of employees, including BIDV and VietinBank.
As of March 31, 2017, BIDV had 23,386 employees, down 218 people from the end of 2016. VietinBank’s personnel scale, meanwhile, reduced nearly 100 people to 21,740.
However, compared with the entire system at present, BIDV is still the bank with the largest personnel scale followed by VietinBank and Sacombank. — VNS
