Human Resource Management Practices in H.R. Textile of Bangladesh

RAB 8 Barisal

Background of the study:

 

In Department of Management, the Universityof Dhaka, BBA program is comprises of  8 semesters and as a requirement for the fulfillment of our BBA program we have  to perform three months internship. As a student of BBA I have gather enough theoretical knowledge, and now I want to put my potentiality in the practical field. H.R. Textile has given me the opportunity to commence my internship there from 1st September 2007 to 30th November 2007.

During the internship program, students are required to prepare a report on the organization where they have been attached. H.R. Textile always encourages and welcome the students for their internship program. I have tired my best to properly apply my potentiality and theoretical knowledge to make the report reliable and information worthy. My honest effort will be regard as successful if this dissertation fulfills the objective of the program.

 

Scope & Objective of the study

In view of the above discussion I find following objectives:

1)      HR practice is in Human Resources Management.

2)      Various steps taken by the management to develop personnel policy on the basis realistic cost-benefit analysis, to made better management decisions in HR, to adjust costs incurred in acquisition of HRM to optimize effectiveness of investment decisions.

Teams or work groups exist in all organizations, ranging in nature from ad hoc to formal. However many teams have not clearly articulated their common purpose for all team members and have not invested in agreeing the team’s common way of working.

Company has facilitated many teams to identify the barriers to team performance, define its core aims and deliverables, agree a team contract on how the team members will work together, and to develop team working skills.

Functional overview and strategy for HRM

These issues motivate a well thought out human resource management strategy, with the precision and detail of say a marketing strategy. Failure in not having a carefully crafted human resources management strategy, can and probably will lead to failures in the business process itself.

This set of resources is offered to promote thought, stimulate discussion, diagnose the organizational environment and develop a sound human resource management strategy for your organization. I begin by looking at the seven distinguishable functions human resource management provide to secure the achievement of the objective defined above.

Following on from this overview I look at defining a human resource strategy. Finally, some questions are posed in the form of a diagnostic checklist for you to consider, which may prove helpful for you to think about when planning your development programs for the human resources in your organization, if they are truly “most valuable asset.”

 

Methodology

 

Developing of Data Collection

I developed the research plan for collecting data and information on research problems and adjusted it in the light of the research objective. I determined what types of data, facts, figures, and information are needed for the research. Then I design my research plan considering the following issues.

Primary Data Collection through Questionnaire Survey:

I have used the observational approach and interview approach for collecting our required data. A questionnaire is prepared to find out the Human Resource Management Practices in H.R. Textile of Bangladesh.I collected the information from different sources. I visited the H.R. Textile at Saver.

Secondary Data Collection:                          

Secondary data is collected to the review of existing data from Internet, Teacher’s Notes news paper, Internet, TV news & magazine. Another source of my information was the internet. For the secondary data analysis there was a limitation in data gathering.

 

Methodology of Data Analysis:

At each stage of survey, data is checked, edited & coded. By using Statistical techniques, data is summarized to find out expected result and presented that by graphical presentation. Data from various sources is coded entered into database system using Microsoft Excel Software. Preliminary data sheets are compared with original coding sheets to ensure the accuracy of data entered.

 

Implementing the Research Plan

Then I have processed the collected information. I have analyzed the information in light of my course with my objectives.

Reporting the Finding

Then I have tried to find my report findings from my research problem. Then I have drawn a conclusion and made a recommendation.

Scope of the report

I mainly focused on the main Human Resource Management Practices in H.R. Textile of Bangladesh

 

Limitation

 

Although I tried my best to make this report based on facts and complete information available, but I had to pass through some limitations that I believe are inevitable. I had to do a lot of hard work in order to gather all the information, carrying out the calculation and complete the assignment. I could not get much information from websites because their construction work was running for websites. So, I had to get appointment from the persons working there and collected as much information they allowed me to take from them, but it is no easy to sit with them.

There was lot of limitation also. First limitation was about gathering the information. Avoid some direct questions to answer.

Most of the information about the topic relevant in the purpose was secret from the point of view of organization. So this kind of information could not be collected.

Sufficient records, publication, fact and figures are not available. These constraints narrowed the scope of the analysis.


My limitations include:    

 

Limitation of time:

I had a little opportunity to spend enough time to prepare this type of big report within a short period of time. For this reason I have to hurry for complete this report within the time.

 

Short experience:

I am in learning stage and have little experience for reporting on such a big project. I tried heart and soul to prepare the report professionally.

 

Lack of Current Data:

While preparing this report I faced a problem of lacking current and most updated data.  That really made obstacles for preparing this report.

 

Introduction

 

Human Resources Management (HRM) is a new concept. It is a combination of HR, Accounting, Management, Financial Management and Economics. Globalization to would economy has exposed the corporate business organization to worldwide competition, mobilization of professional manpower and modern quantitative management practice. So, there are growing realization cannot achieve its goal effectively and efficiently. To face this complex management challenge, effective objectively measurable database system to measure and apply HRM information.

Now-a-days, inBangladesh, every year, and huge amount of money and talented HRM are being engaged by corporate to improve the productivity or skills o f their workforce across the country. Such huge expenditures are made with the expectation of future returns in terms of improved services to be rendered by skilled employees. In other words, organizations by investing human resources development definitely increase the service potentials embodied in human resources and these investments thus create economic assets for the organizations.

Human resource (or personnel) management, in the sense of getting things done through people, is an essential part of every manager’s responsibilities, but many organizations find it advantageous to establish a specialist division to provide an expert service dedicated to ensuring that the human resource function is performed efficiently.

“People are our most valuable asset” is a cliché which no member of any senior management team would disagree with. Yet, the reality for many organizations are that their people remain under valued, under trained and under utilized.

The rate of change facing organizations has never been greater and organizations must absorb and manage change at a much faster rate than in the past. In order to implement a successful business strategy to face this challenge, organizations, large or small, must ensure that they have the right people capable of delivering the strategy.

There is a long-standing argument about where HR-related functions should be organized into large organizations, e.g., “should HR be in the Organization Development department or the other way around?”

The HRM function and HRD profession have undergone tremendous change over the past 20-30 years. Many years ago, large organizations looked to the “Personnel Department,” mostly to manage the paperwork around hiring and paying people. More recently, organizations consider the “HR Department” as playing a major role in staffing, training and helping to manage people so that people and the organization are performing at maximum capability in a highly fulfilling manner.

Definition and Concept of HRM

HRM is the set is organizational activities directed at attracting, developing, and maintaining an effective workforce. Human resource management takes place within a complex and ever-changing environmental context. Three particularly vital components of this context are HRM strategic importance and the legal and social environment of HRM.

The Human Resources Management (HRM) function includes a variety of activities, and key among them is deciding what staffing needs you have and whether to use independent contractors or hire employees to fill these needs, recruiting and training the best employees, ensuring they are high performers, dealing with performance issues, and ensuring your personnel and management practices conform to various regulations. Activities also include managing your approach to employee benefits and compensation, employee records and personnel policies.

The Concept of HRM

The objectives of this section are to:

  • Outline the variety of ways in which HRM is defined.
  • Offer a working definition for the purposes of this book.
  • Discuss the most influential early models of HRM.
  • Review some of the evidence for the adoption of HRM

Defining human resource management
many people find HRM to be a vague and elusive concept…

Maps and models of HRM
This section begins with a discussion of various approaches to HRM…

The Harvard map of human resource management
This is probably the most seminal model of HRM and has had a major influence on academic debate on the subject.

Hard HRM
TheMichigan model is also known as the ‘matching model’ or ‘best-fit’ approach to human resource management.

Guest’s Model of HRM
David Guest’s British model of HRM has 6 dimensions of analysis

Alternative HRM Models
The terminology used in academic human resource literature is problematic because some authors distinguish between ‘the HRM models’ as distinct from ‘the Personnel model’.

The Discourse of HRM
HRM has been addressed by a number of writers from a ‘discourse’ perspective. Usually small businesses (for-profit or nonprofit) have to carry out these activities themselves because they can’t yet afford part- or full-time help. However, they should always ensure that employees have — and are aware of — personnel policies which conform to current regulations. These policies are often in the form of employee manuals, which all employees have.

The objectives of this section are to:

Evaluate whether or not HRM has been meaningfully implemented and, if so, to what extent.

* Investigate the form it may take.

* Determine the principal driving forces for the implementation of HRM.

* Summarize evidence for its effectiveness.

* Consider trends and future developments for the human resource function.

Note that some people distinguish a difference between HRM (a major management activity) and HRD (Human Resource Development, a profession). Those people might include HRM in HRD, explaining that HRD includes the broader range of activities to develop personnel inside of organizations, including, eg, career development, training, organization development, etc.

In Managing Human Resources: Personnel Management in Transition, Stephen Bach (2005:3) argues that, compared to a decade ago, much of the controversy about the definition of HRM has dissipated. He considers that, in part, this may be due to the use of a broader and more encompassing definition of HRM. However, Bach (p.4) shows that the debate has not vanished by disagreeing with Boxall and Purcell’s (2003:1) statement that HRM refers to:

“… all those activities associated with the management of the employment relationship in the firm. The term ’employee relations’ will be used as an equivalent terms as will the term ‘labor management’.”

Bach argues that this definition is ‘a little too broad’, stating that such a broad definition makes it difficult to:

  • Highlight any distinctive features or values that underpin HRM
  • Chart changes in the practice of HRM
  • Understand the controversy surrounding HRM

In Bach’s opinion, HRM differs from employee relations in its focus on management practices and tendency to ignore the interests of employees. In fact, he holds quite ‘hard’ views on the nature of HRM:

  • HRM is unitary (employer and employee interests should coincide) with an emphasis on organizational effectiveness
  • The interests of other stakeholders such as employees are marginalized
  • There is a predominant interest on the individual firm – specifically, within the firm – focused on individual employee motivation and aspiration
  • There is a consequent playing down of external and collective (unionization) issues.

Human Resource Management in a Business Context 2/e discuss the use and meaning of the term ‘human resource management’, present a number of textbook definitions and provide a working definition for the book:

‘A philosophy of people management based on the belief that human resources are uniquely important in sustained business success. An organization gains competitive advantage by using its people effectively, drawing on their expertise and ingenuity to meet clearly defined objectives. HRM is aimed at recruiting capable, flexible and committed people, managing and rewarding their performance and developing key competencies.’

 

Adopting HRM.

Human resource management has been presented as a radical alternative to personnel management (…) consisting of exciting, modern ideas which would replace the stale and ineffective prescriptions of personnel management. In fact, the process of transition has been slow. The market place for talented, skilled people is competitive and expensive. Taking on new staff can be disruptive to existing employees. Also, it takes time to develop ‘cultural awareness’, product/ process/ organization knowledge and experience for new staff members

The Impact of HRM

After all, this is the justification implicit in HRM models for valuing the human resource above all others. The following were given as possible explanations:

  • Insufficient research. Not because of lack of effort but due to the absence of clear, agreed frameworks within which to conduct comparative research. The root cause of this was perceived as HRM’s own ambiguity. How were we to look for evidence of HRM and its effects if we had no agreement on what HRM was?
  • Intangibility. If people are an ‘intangible resource’ we have an insurmountable problem – by definition intangibles are immeasurable!

Since then, progress has been made in conceptualizing the problem and measuring results (…). For example, that ‘low-road’ practices – including short-term contracts, lack of employer commitment to job security, low levels of training and unsophisticated human resource practices – were negatively correlated with corporate performance. In contrast, they established a positive correlation between good corporate performances and ‘high-road’ work practices – ‘high commitment’ organizations or ‘transformed’ workplaces. They also found that HR practices are more likely to make a contribution to competitive success when introduced as a comprehensive package, or ‘bundle’ of practices.

1. Use of technology to communicate with employees.
2. Rising health care costs.
3. Increased vulnerability of intellectual property.
4. Managing talent.
5. Greater demand for high-skilled workers than for low-skilled workers.
6. Labor shortage.
7. Change from manufacturing to information/service economy.
8. Increase in employment-related government regulations.
9. Focus on domestic safety and security.
10. Ability to use technology to more closely monitor employees.

These views represent an American perspective, but practitioners in other countries would probably identify with a number of these trends. (…)

HR function is clearly shifting from being a “service provider” to a “business partner” but the requirements and needs of this new role can also be met by line managers or external providers. Hence the change of roles is both an immense opportunity and a threat for human resource managers. Considers that the HR function of the future will be significantly from that in the past and that organizations need to recognize this in order to make the most of knowledge workers and knowledge professionals. According to and strategic literature is increasingly emphasizing intellectual capital, learning processes and organizational adaptability. They argue that HRM specialists could play a central role because questions of how to attract motivate and develop workers with scarce but critical abilities, and developing effective processes of work organization are fundamental to knowledge-based competition.

Importance of HRM

Prior to the mid- 1960s personnel departments in organizations were often perceives as the “health and happiness” crews. Their primary job activities involved planning company picnics, scheduling vacations, enrolling workers for health-care coverage and planning retirement parties. That has certainly chanted during the past three decades.

Federal and state laws have placed man new requirements concerning hiring and employment practices in employees. Jobs have also changed. They have become more technical and require employees with greater skids. Furthermore, job boundaries are becoming blurred. In the past, a worker performed a job in a specific department, working on particular fob risks with others who did similar fobs. Today’s workers are just as likely, however, to find themselves working on project teams with the various people from across the organization. Others may do the majority of their work at home – and rarely see any of their coworkers. And of course, global competition has increased the importance of organization improving the productivity of their work force, and looking globally for the best-qualified workers, this has resulted in the need for HRM specialists trained in psychology, sociology, organization and work design and law.

Federal legislation requiem’s organizations to hire the qualified candidate without regard to race, religion color, sex, disability, or national origin- and someone has to ensure that this is done. Employees need to be trained to function effectively within the organization land again, someone has to oversee this. Furthermore, once hired and trained the organization has to provide for the contriving personal development of each employee. Practices are needed to ensure that these employees maintain their productive affiliation with the organization. The work environment must be structured to induce workers to stay with the organization, while simultaneously attracting new applicants. Of course, the someone’s we refer to those responsible for carting our activities are human resource professionals. Today, professionals in the human resources area important elements in the success of any organization. There require a new level of sophistication.

Human resource and employee personal-development courses are founded upon the principles of psychology in the workplace. Some courses are competency-based and provide practitioners with skills to appropriately assess and develop employees at work. Also plays a part in every employee’s development through the provision of courses such as Time Management, Stress Management and Conflict Resolution. Additionally, we are involved in team-building and motivation events, as well as skills development for those who are seeking employment.

But it also creates a new difficulty for managers and supervisors – because they need to understand and act on the new model of HR Management and learn the necessary distinctions between the old management and the new empowerment style. This workshop is designed to provide a Manager or Supervisor of any function with some `real life tools` and `tips` to become an empowering leader and establishes their credibility as an effective supervisor.

Industrial Revaluation:

The process of change from an agrarian handicraft economy to one dominated by industry and machine manufacture. This process began inEnglandand from there spread to other parts of the world.

The characteristics of the society before industrial revaluation

lsmall scale production

lFamily or group based production at home

luse of small hand tools

lBarter system

ldistribution in limited areas

Causes for occurrence in Great Britain

lA dense population for its small geographical size

lLocal supplies of coal, iron, lead, copper, tin, limestone and water power

lIntroduction of steam power (fueled primarily by coal)

lThe introduction of power engine at factory

lMajor changes in distribution of production due to the introduction of rail engine

Major impacts of industrial revaluation

lDuring industrial revaluation child labor grew far more abusive than ever before

lInhuman housing situation

lMany weavers found themselves suddenly unemployed since they could no longer compete with machines

lThe abolition of feudalism

lImproved transportation system

lSupply of products in large quantities at cheap rate.

Functions of HRM

Human resources are critical for effective organizational functioning. HRM (or personnel, as it is sometimes called) was once relegated to second class status in many organizations but its importance has grown dramatically in the last toe decades. Its new importance stems from increased legal complexities the recognition that human resources are a valuable means for improving productivity. And the awareness today of the costs associated with poor human resource management.

Indeed, managers now realize that the effectiveness of their HR function has a substantial impact on the bottom line performance of the firm. Poor human resource planning can result in spurts of hiring followed but layoffs- costly in terms of unemployment compensation payments, training expenses and morale. Haphazard compensation systems did not attract, keep and motivate good employees reassigns discrimination lawsuits. Consequently, the chief human resource executive of most large business is a vice president directly accountable to the CEO and many firms are developing strategic HR plans and integrating those plans with other strategic planning activities.

Article I. Guest’s model of HRM

David Guest’s (1989, 1997) model of HRM has 6 dimensions of analysis:

  • HRM strategy
  • HRM practices
  • HRM outcomes
  • Behavior outcomes
  • Performance outcomes
  • Financial outcomes

The model is prescriptive in the sense that it is based on the assumption that HRM is distinctively different from traditional personnel management (rooted in strategic management, etc.).

It is idealistic, implicitly embodying the belief that fundamental elements of the HRM approach (essentially those of the Harvard map) such as commitment have a direct relationship with valued business consequences.

However, Guest has acknowledged that the concept of commitment is ‘messy’ and that the relationship between commitment and high performance is (or, perhaps, was – given the age of this material) difficult to establish. It also employs a ‘flow’ approach, seeing strategy underpinning practice, leading to a variety of desired outcomes.

Like its American predecessors, thisUKmodel is unitarist (tying employee behavior and commitment into the goals of strategic management) and lukewarm on the value of trade unions. The employee relationship is viewed as one between the individual and the organization.

All the above are important to a manager when seeking to achieve optimum productivity levels from available resources by marrying scientific management principles to a human relations approach.

1. Human Resource Policies

The OECD has introduced several human resource policies. For example, policies exist in the following areas: equal opportunities, training and development, sexual harassment, non-smoking, part-time work and spouse support and employment.

2. Job Vacancies/who can apply/How to apply

This section covers who can apply for OECD vacancies and how to apply. It is important to read this section before moving on to the list of job vacancies.

3. Salary and Benefits

summary of the conditions of service for established staff members contained in this section is intended for use as a guide only.

4. Staff Categories

This section describes the types and grade structure of positions at the OECD. This information will give you an idea of the level or type of job you would be suited for before moving on to look at our list of vacancy notices.

5. Other Programmers

  • Trainees
    This section explains how OECD hires trainees and how to apply.

Identified four common HR processes performed in every organization:

  • Selection: matching people to jobs
  • Appraisal of performance
  • Rewards: emphasizing the real importance of pay and other forms of compensation in achieving results
  • Development of skilled individuals

These processes are linked in a human resource cycle.

The matching model has attracted criticism. At a conceptual level, it is seen to depend on a rational, mechanical form of organizational decision-making. In reality, strategies are often determined and operational zed on a more intuitive, political and subjective level. Certainly, the decision-making is more complex than the model allows. It is also both prescriptive and normative, implying that the fit to business strategy should determine HR strategy.

Randall Schuler and colleagues subsequently presented a more complex version of the matching model that took into account significant wider factors such as technology, organizational structure and size, unionization and industry sector. These accounts were heavily influenced by Michael Porter‘s writing on business strategy.

This section gives a contemporary historical perspective on the concept of productivity. Though the word and concept is a fairly recent phenomenon the search for an optimum application of resources, human and other, to complete projects has been around a long time. Attitudes to work will be explored in this introductory section. Key developments during the Industrial Revolution, the rise of scientific management and its counterweight the human relations school of management will be explored from a historical perspective. In addition a view of the challenges faced, in terms of the contemporary role of management is offered.

To an alarming degree, the author has found during his career that the biggest factor holding back employee productivity is the attitude of the manager / leader towards his / her followers. The article on the self-fulfilling prophecy explores this concept.

A non-technical appreciation of job design and work organization is given to clarify and systemize the process. All samples pro forma are included in the PDF version.

The services offered by a modern HR department are explored and clarified, together with a diagnostic check list to help identify critical human resource issues.

Job analysis

A job analysis is a systematic exploration of the activities within a job. It is a technical procedure used to define the duties, responsibilities, and accountabilities of a job. Their analysis “involves the identification and description of what is happening of the job … accurately and precisely identifying the required tasks the knowledge and the skills necessary for performing the and the condition under which they must be performed.

Job analysis methods:

The basic methods that HRM can use to determine job elements and the essential knowledge, skills, and abilities for successful performance include the following:

Observation method:

A job analysis technique in which data are gathered by watching employees work.

Technical conference method:

A job analysis technique that involves extensive input from the employees’ supervisor.

Diary method:

A job analysis method requiring job incumbents to record their daily activities.

Individual interview method:

Method meeting with an employee to determine what his or her job entails.

Group interview method:

Meeting with a number of employees to collectively determine what their jobs entail.

Structured Questionnaire method:

A specifically designed questionnaire on which employee’s rate tasks they perform on their jobs

The Manager’s Human resource Management Jobs:

Most writers agree that there are certain basic functions all managers perform. These are planning, organizing, staffing, leading and controlling. In total they represent what managers call the management process. Some of the specific activities involved in each function include:

Planning: Establishing goals and standards developing rules and procedures developing plans and forecasting.

Organizing: Giving each subordinate a specific task, establishing departments, delegating authority to subordinates, establishing channels of authority and communication, coordination the work of subordinates.

Staffing: Determining what type of people should be hired, recruiting prospective employees, selecting employees, setting performance standard, compensating standard, evaluating performance, training and developing employees.

Leading: Getting others to get the job done, maintaining morale, and motivating subordinates.

Controlling: Setting standards such as sales quotas, quality standards, or production levels, checking to see how actual performance compares with these standards, taking corrective action as needed.

HRM is the process of acquiring, training, appraising, and compensating employees, and attending to their labor relations, health and safety, and fairness concerns. The topics I’ll discuss should therefore provide you with the concepts and techniques need to carry people or personnel aspects of your management job. These include:

  1. Conducting job analyses (determining the nature of each employees job)
  2. Planning labor needs and recruiting job candidates
  3. Selecting job candidates
  4. Orienting and training new employees
  5. Managing wages and salaries(compensating employees)
  6. Providing incentives and benefits
  7. Appraising performance
  8. Communicating(interviewing, counseling, disciplining)
  9. Training and developing managers
  10. Building employee commitment
  11. And what a manager should know about:
  12. Equal opportunity and affirmative action
  13. Employee health and safety
  14. Handling grievances and labor relations.

 

Human resources planning

They need for human resource planning may not be readily apparent .However an organization that does not do planning for human resources may find that it is not meeting either its personal requirements or its overall goals effectively .For example ,a manufacturing company may hope to increase productivity .With new automated equipment ,but if the company does not start to hire and train to people to aspirate the equipment before installation ,the equipment may retain idle for ,weeks or ever months .Similarly an-all male ,all-white organization that does not plan to add women and minority group member to its staff may well have travel maintaining high performance and its also likely to become the in a civil rights lawsuit .Planning for human resources is a challenging task today ,given the increasingly competitive environment ,projected labor shortages ,changing demographics and pressure from government to protect both employees and the environment .The HRM can have a significant effect on an organization in a number of ways ,depending on what goals a company choose to focus.

Human resource planning has some objectives .For the fulfillment of these objectives human resources management undertake some activities and program .If all these activities are properly done and programs are undertake ,that can determined the efficiency of HRM .However the object of HRM can be mentioned in the following paragraphs:

1 .To Use Human Resources: The first objective of HR is to ensure optimum use of human resources .It means proper distribution of functions among the employees.

2 .To Forecast Future Skills: Second objectives of HR planning are to forecast whether required skills may be available or not .If it is seen that HR will not be available in future as per desire necessary steps can be taken just in the planning.

3 .TO Asses HR Requirements: Reasonable number of human resources is required for efficient and timely performance or organization activities .HR planning can help the management to ass’s future HR requirements properly.

 4 .To Provide Control Measures: Proper control measure can help in ensuring discipline in the organization .HR planning determines the accurate number of human resources and satisfies its demand.

Recruitment and Selection Process of H.R. Textile 

Recruitment and Selection is the first function of Human Resource Management. Recruitment is a process of finding and attracting qualified people for the job. Selection is a process of hiring suitable people for job. Right person for the job is the main goal of the selection. Generally the organization recruits and selects different types of qualified candidates for different departments.

The recruitment policy of H.R. Textile is as follows:

v  At first, the department concerned fills up a form and starting how the vacancy has arisen and how it has to be filled up.

v  Prepare the job profile for the position to be filled up in consultant with the departmental manager concerned. Job profile usually contains the basis content of the job.

v  The profile contains the minimum qualities needed to perform a job efficiently.

v  Developing a job and main profile is essential before HRM proceed with the process of selection and interview. It would help HRM to draw up a properly worded advertisement.

The following recruitment sources are used by the H.R. Textile:

  • Advertisement in the media
  • Electronic media
  • Internal Resources (If some one exist it the organization appropriate for the job)
  • Campaign in the University.

The organization follows the important recruitment principle:

  • Recruiting the qualified personnel
  • Not to be influenced by others.
  • Equal employment opportunity
  • Discipline wise.

 

For the purpose of the selecting new employees the H.R. Textile would examine:

v  Physical ability

v  Measure personality

v  Finally, work sample test.

v  The suitable candidates are called for final interview.

v  The organization mainly used structured or directive interview, job related interview and panel interview. The final decision of selection at senior level was taken by the board of directors.

v  After that, HR manager calls selected candidates and makes offer of the job.

The Survey Methodology

Goals:
  • Are the goals clearly communicated so employees can understand them at corporate, departmental and individual level?
  • Do employees agree and support the goals and believe in their achievability?
Structure:
  • Is the structure appropriate to achieving the goals and are the negatives inherent in the structure minimized, and the strengths maximized?
Relationships:
  • To what extent do relationships contribute to the achievement of the business goals?
  • What barriers have to be removed to ensure that the interpersonal, inter-unit and technology relationships operate effectively when people need to work together to deliver the goals?
Climate:
  • Is there sufficient morale and recognition to sustain the motivation of employees?
  • Are the differences between good average and poor performance levels recognized and dealt with effectively?
Leadership:
  • Do leaders at all levels define goals and empower employees to deliver them?
  • Do leaders deal with the conflict and barriers that inhibit individual and team performance?
Process:
  • Are there sufficient coordination and integration processes for the delivery of the goals?
  • Is there sufficient management information for the performance of work and sufficient process innovation to meet changing requirements?

Strategic Human Resource Process

Mobilizing and managing human assets has become one of the most critical factors for organizational success. Experience and research indicates clearly that maximizing the contribution of all team members requires a systemic approach that relies on three characteristics:

  • Alignment of individual and team behavior and goals with organization values and strategies
  • Integration of human asset applications into a common set of processes based on common success criteria
  • Distribution of accountability and learning using enabling tools and technology helps organizations both refine or augment selective parts of their human assets systems and design and implement comprehensive people strategies. Frequently we are asked to:
  • Create a vision, values and supporting competencies
  • Generate a goal-setting approach
  • Create talent identification and pipelining process
  • Produce a human assets management approach (i.e., ensuring availability, mobilization and development of the right people for the right projects and/or positions
  • Develop a process, tools and support materials for creating a learning organization
  • Integrate the core human asset management applications (e.g., hiring/selection, assessment, development, learning and performance management) into a common process

These resources will include information on the following themes:

  • An overview of recruitment and selection,
  • Preparing to recruit,
  • Accessing potential applicants,
  • Selection processes,

Employee Relations

‘Employee Relations’ is a relatively new term which broadens the study of industrial relations to include wider aspects of the employment relationship, including non-unionized workplaces, personal contracts and socio-emotional, rather than contractual, arrangements. This is an area with diverse ideological underpinnings and political ramifications. Governments have taken an active part in determining its conduct.

Human Resource Management in a Business Context provides an international focus on the theory and practice of people management. A thorough and comprehensive overview of all the key aspects of HRM, including case studies, articles from HRM Guide and other sources, key concepts, review questions and problems for discussion and analysis.

Employee relations as an activity

In many developed countries the industrial relations of the 1950s to the 1970s depended on the existence of company rules and regulations which served the purpose of clarifying what was expected of both employees and employers. Since then, the move towards flexibility and empowerment of staff has resulted in ‘fuzzier’ boundaries between required behavior and that which is regarded as inappropriate. Employees – particularly managers – have been given greater discretion on decision making in free market economies. This has been encouraged by ‘neoliberal’ governments throughout the world. Within the European Union, however, there has been a countervailing emphasis on formal rules because of the predominance of social market economies at the heart of the community. Typically, most large organizations continue to have formal rules on:

  • Timekeeping
  • Absence
  • Health and safety
  • Gross misconduct
  • Use of company facilities
  • Discrimination

The enforcement of such rules is a sensitive issue, requiring some form of formal or informal disciplinary system. Discipline is not only negative, in the sense of being punitive or preventative; it also makes a positive contribution to organizational performance. An effective organization cannot survive if its members behave in an anarchic way. Order within an organization depends on an appropriate mixture of each of these forms of discipline. Within the context of HRM, however, the emphasis has moved away from managerial discipline towards self and, especially, team discipline. Nevertheless, most organizations continue to have institutionalized disciplinary procedures, largely determined by management.

Human Resource Policies

Equal opportunity

Equal opportunity and treatment between men and women is a fundamental principle of HR policy. Actions to give effect to this principle have meant that, over recent years, recruitment and retention patterns have gradually changed to give women a larger presence in the Organization’s staff. The situation could still be improved however because, as elsewhere, women are not equitably represented at all levels: their participation continues to be largely at the lower grades.

Training and Development

It is the policy of relevant training for its staff to obtain and maintain the mix of skills and knowledge needed to achieve the highest level of performance in accomplishing the mission and objectives.

Training, as one element of an integrated personnel management system that includes recruitment, performance management, career management, is one important means of learning.

Sexual harassment

Any type of harassment at work, or in connection with work performed on behalf of the Organization, will not be tolerated and may give rise to disciplinary action. This includes any action which constitutes sexual harassment.

Non-smoking policy

The protect non-smokers from the effects of smoking, and to help smokers to give up smoking if they so choose. The Organization’s collective areas are non-smoking (except areas set aside for smokers). Shared officers are considered to be collective areas, and are therefore non-smoking.

Spouse support and employment

Organizations, when managing the recruitment of expatriate staff, are becoming increasingly sensitized to the needs of the family unit. Many such organizations have therefore introduced a spouse programmed to help the spouse make the adjustments necessary before the move takes place.

3.13 Specialist Employment Law Training and Services

Development of HR Policies and Procedures
Due to the complexity of employment legislation, many organizations require support in the development and production of employee contracts, policies and handbooks. I seek to build on policies and practices already in place and take account of an organization’s culture, while achieving legal compliance in policy and practice.

  • HR Policy review and development
  • Employee Handbooks
  • Employee Contracts
  • HR Audits and compliance analysis

Implications of Employment Law for Managers

The complex nature of our legislation and working practices requires managers to be at the forefront of implementing HR policies. Managers and supervisors need to fully understand the legal implications of day to day management activities such as refusing annual leave, absence management, dealing with grievances, interviewing and bullying allegations. Graphite provides a series of practical workshops to enable managers carry out these activities in a compliant and effective way:

Training & Development Practices of H.R.Textile

Training is a process of acquiring new skill to do job properly.Training changes employee’s attitudes and behavior.Development of employee’s is necessary to prepare the organizations for future challenges. Training is a crucial factor for achieving development to the employee’s. H.R. Textile has a training department which is maintained by Industrial Engineering (I.E) department.

The organization provides on the job training for all newly appointed personnel to make them competent for the position.It also provides training to the existing managers, officers and the staff all over the year.

Training Policy of H.R. Textile      

  • The training department provides training to the new  and existing employees on the basis of schedule prepared early in the year.
  • This department asks the departmental head to provide specific number of trainee for the any specific training courses. Then departmental head select personnel from his department.
  • There are various methods of providing training to the employees. The training department of H.R. Textile normally arrange the following-

a)      Classroom lecture

b)      Conference

c)      Workshop

d)     Seminar

e)      Computer base training

  • Depending on the situation, the training department selects training method for the training employees.
  • Then H.R. manager make decision that who will be trained.
  • After completing training program, the training department arranger an examination for evaluating the training effectiveness of the employees. Those employees who perform well in the examination are ranked first. The training department provides certificates on the basis of their performance.

Resolution of Issues

Whilst I advocate the use of informal methods of complaint resolution whenever feasible, at times objective investigation and analysis has to come from an external source. This is especially true when complex issues have built an internal legacy which is difficult to unravel, and when internal expertise is insufficient to resolve issues. I support resolution through:

My expert provide up to date input on the impact of current and new employment legislation, the requirements for day to day compliance, the responsibilities of managers and HR, and provide relevant skills practice, case examples and exercises.

 

Analytical Part

 

Employees Selection Criteria

The selection of the employees as a Partex Group is very complicated and difficult during the visiting time I know about it. The men/women who want to participate as an employee in this organization should have to drop the C.V here. Then the selection committee have choose a very few among them and call them for interview. After that who is qualified the selection members select those persons. You don’t need to be a graduate associate in order to fast-track. It’s dependent on how well you’re doing and how much potential you have. You could be a very high-performing employee, but that does not mean you can manage very large businesses.

 

Purpose

The organization’s main purpose is to manage the internal and external customer. Their main objective is to make the customer satisfied. Their motive is to solve each problem arises within the customer. Make the life of people easier & more comfortable. They give the full satisfaction to the customer about the any kinds of errors. They help staff to ‘use their strengths in their jobs and for them to be successful because everything we do in HR has to be linked to performance’.

MONITORING AND SUPERVISING

The mentor is a unique aspect of the Human Resource Management Trainee program. The mentor guides the overall professional career development of the H.R. Textile. The mentor also acts as teacher, counselor, motivator, and confidante to support and facilitate.

Textile how positions are filled; how time and attendance is reported; alternate work schedules; how Human Resource and payroll transactions are processed; and the procedures for maintaining, accessing, and releasing employee personnel information.

Findings

The organization put together an experienced staff to design and merchandise, source and buys raw materials, develop product and components, and coordinate multi process embellishment and technical cut and sew operations. They ship finished product to either distribution. The organization does it fast and do it right!

Today, supervisors and managers are urged to follow a new model, a more compassionate, collaborative approach to leadership and Human Resources Management based on a philosophy of individual empowerment and team effort – much different than the model of cold authority figures. This modern approach to supervision and HR Management engages more workers’ intelligence, creativity, motivation and loyalty. It tends to reduce absenteeism and turnover, while increasing productivity and problem solving ability.

For my point of view the company should keep its young employees. Every potential junior auditor one day because a senior sufficient facilities and careful observation can brings success of these prospective trainee officers. Conducted by research basic work and investigation my point of view the company should do to keep its young employees.

I find out some point which is as below:
      Lack of experience of junior member which covered by the senior member of the H.R. Textile.

      More productivity, the organization’s attention is usually focused on the work being produced. This is helpful to achieve the organization goal.

      Always try to measure quantity with quality.

      Less careful about their further career development
.
      The pay and promotion decision are made based on the seniority although it should   be related with performance.

      Lack of adequate, update and accurate information from the management  information department (MIS)

      Lack of job description and job analysis procedure for the personnel so that sometimes lower label workers can not identify their specific tasks.

      All the departments have not enough modern facilities like-computer &other technologies.


Long term payment schedule it needs more times that create hamper for the work.

The organization would prefer advertisement in the media source such as daily newspapers & the internet.

Different type’s organization follow different types of philosophy from my point of view in this case working combination way such as team work or friendly manner as a result it reduce the turnover rate and enhance the satisfactory land which is helpful to organization goal.


Recommendation

A simple strategic model is comprised of four key components via;Mission, Objectives, Strategy, Implementation and Review. The term ‘strategic management’ defines the process by which these long term aims, the strategy and implementation are managed. ‘Strategic HRM’ deals with the longer-term people issues, as part of the strategic management of human resources, in accordance with its H.R. Textile’s strategy and mission statement.

On the basis of the findings, I would like to suggest the followings to mitigate their problems:

Managers, senior officers, and officers should  trained up both inside and out side of the organization. In order to cop with changing condition.

Job analysis and job description should be properly elaborately so that the personnel can understand their duties and responsibilities.

All the departments should be equipped with enough modern facilities like-computer& other technologies

Lengthy procedures and long time payment systems should be avoid.

All records should be kept properly with computerized mechanisms.

The quality of the product should be improved more and the customers needs to be accommodated in a more courteous and friendly manner.

Every year special prizes and incentives must be given to extraordinary workers to motivate them.

Qualified and skilled staff should be promoted based on their performance level.

Public sector and institutional reform:

  • A coherent sector strategy is a prerequisite for sustainable Human Resource strategy and supporting structures. The organization needs to develop improved training management practices and utilization of training resources especially training centers and, effectively utilize their own resource persons to improve and update the skills of junior staff and new entrants.

Support for in-country HRM development.

If the organization were well developed, it could become the professional body for HRM in the country. Support could include a small scoping study to examine how the Society could be developed, where and how the public sector would fit, timescale for any support and long-term sustainability.
