Bank of Baroda, one of the country’s largest public sector banks, celebrated its 114th Foundation Day on 20th July 2021 by felicitating COVID warriors across all the 18 zones of the bank pan-India. Each of the zones identified employees who had served the society during the pandemic and showed exemplary courage, passion and dedication towards the society and felicitated them.
Apart from the felicitation of the COVID warriors from the bank, the Bank of Baroda also felicitated Shri Mayur Shelke, who is employed as a pointsman with Indian Railways in Mumbai, Maharashtra. Shri Shelke risked his life to save a six-year-old child from certain death when the latter fell onto railway tracks in front of an oncoming train at Vangani railway station, near Mumbai.
The theme for the 114th Foundation Day is about the “Value” all Barodians create and the “Trust” that the bank enjoys of its 140 million customers. And therefore, the theme for Foundation Day is ‘CREATING VALUE WITH TRUST’. It is about the ability to offer an enriching customer experience and enhanced product offerings with the same trustworthy service that the bank is known for.
Bank of Baroda also announced the soon-to-be-launched ‘bob World’, the next-generation digital banking platform. ‘bob World’ would be the digital face of the bank and a modern mobile application, regrouping its various products and services under one common digital umbrella brand.
Commemorating the 114th Foundation Day, Bank of Baroda Managing Director & CEO Sanjiv Chadha said the bank employees showed exceptional courage and served customers.
“We gratefully acknowledge the services and sacrifices made by our staff members who have been the pillars of strength in these trying times. On this auspicious day, we also bring the next generation, comprehensive digital banking platform ‘bob World’, which is an expression of the customer-centric, progressive and global values of the bank. ‘bob World’ brings digital product delivery to help reposition the bank as a new-age bank,” said Sanjiv Chadha.
