Private sector banks facing high attrition, RBI Governor says ‘impatient generation’

RBI Governor Shaktikanta Das said on Tuesday that attrition at some private sector banks is high and the central bank is closely monitoring the issue. Das made the comments at an industry event in Mumbai, amid reports of some major banks reporting attrition rates of over 30%.

He said that the career outlook of youngsters has changed with regard to job switching, and that the youth is “thinking differently” on this aspect. He attributed the high attrition rate to the fact that this is an “impatient generation”, where youngsters are switching jobs faster than the earlier generation.

Das said that the RBI is looking at the issue closely because it understands that the times have changed, and that banks need to give greater focus on reducing attrition. He added that the RBI prefers leaving it to the management of banks to deal with the issue, rather than prescribing any specific solutions.
