Union Bank, which celebrates its 100thanniversary this year took up the 9th position on the list of companies,moving up 24 places from 33rd place in the 2015 list. This ranking reinforces a number of awards they’ve received in the past year, especially the “Best Contributing Employer in Human Resources in 2015″ award they received from the Industrial Training Fund (ITF) in August 2016.
It was observed that companies with a consistent commitment to employee welfare, training, work-life balance, good salary packages and an equal opportunity policy took up the top positions. Union Bank for example is known to invest heavily in ensuring it is a great place to work so its employees can give their best to deliver the incredible transformation currently going on in the bank.
