In 2019, the staff recruitment division of the Bank launched several projects to attract personnel, form the database of potential candidates, and develop the HR brand of MKB. The referral program «Colleagues May Be Chosen» is aimed at filling in vacancies with the candidates recommended by the Bank’s employees. This program has a favorable impact on the involvement of employees in the team-building process.
In 2019, more divisions of the Bank took part in the young specialists attraction program «MKB Universe» than in 2018, and in 2020 the number of divisions participating in the program is also planned to grow. The practical training under MKB Universe allows the students to spend the years of their studies with the maximum benefit and to acquire that very precious work experience. This program is the strategy for entering adult life. Trainees take a shot at banking and acquire practical knowledge for the successful start of their career. MKB Universe engaged Moscow’s largest higher educational institutions: Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO), Moscow State University, Bauman Moscow State Technical University (MGTU), Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, and others. There were lectures and masterclasses organized for the graduate students of the above higher educational institutions by MKB top managers and experts. As a result of selection, in 2019, only 14 finalists out of more than 300 students and graduates became interns in different divisions of MKB.
