HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT PRACTICES OF BANGLADESH SHILPA BANK
WHAT IS HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT?
Human resource management refers to the practices and policies you need to carry out the people or personnel aspects of your management job. These include:
. Conducting job analyses (determining the nature of each employee’s job)
. Planning labor needs and recruitment job candidates
³ Selecting job candidates
³ Orienting and training new employees
³ Managing Wages and Salaries (how to compensate employees)
³ Providing incentives and benefits
³ Appraising performance
³ Communicating (interviewing, counseling, disciplining)
³ Training and developing
³ Building employee commitment
WHY IS HRM IMPORTANT?
Why are these concepts and techniques important to all managers? Perhaps it’s easier to answer this by listing some of the personnel mistakes you don’t want to make while managing. For example, you don’t want:
- To hire the wrong person for the job
- To experience high turnover
- To find your people not doing their nest
- To waste time with useless interviews 52
- To have your company taken to court because of your discriminatory actions
- To have your company cited under federal occupational safety laws for unsafe practices.
- To have some of your employees think their salaries are unfair and inequitable relative to others in the organization
- To allow a lack of training to undermine your department’s effectiveness.
- To commit any unfair labor practices.
For many years it has been said that capital is the bottleneck for a developing industry. I don’t think this any larger holds true. I think it’s the workforce and the company’s inability to recruit and maintain a good work force that does constitute the bottleneck for production. I don’t know of any major project backed by good ideas, vigor and enthusiasm that has been stopped by a shortage of cash. I do know of industries whose growth has been partly stopped or hampered because they can’t maintain an efficient and enthusiastic labor force; and I think this will hold true even more in the future.
At time in our history has that statement been true than it is today. As we’ll
See in a moment, intensified global competition, deregulation, and technical
Advances have triggered an avalanche of change, one that many firms have not survived. Human resource practices and policies can playa crucial role in fostering such employee commitment and in enabling the firm to better respond to change.
The Changing Environment Of HRM
Changes are occurring today in the environment of human resource management changes that are requiring it to play an ever more crucial role in organization. These trends include work force diversity, technological trends, globalization, as changes in the nature of jobs and work.
THE CHANGING ROLE OF HRM
Not surprisingly, the role of HR management is also changing, to adapt to these trends. In the early 1900spersonnel people first took over hiring and firing from supervisors, the payroll department, and administered benefit plans. It was job consisting largely of ensuring that procedures were followed. As technology in such areas as testing and interviewing began to emerge, the personnel department began to play an expanded role in employee selection, training, and promotion.
HR and Boosting Productivity
Productivity improvement is crucial in today’s globally competitive environment, and HR plays a pivotal role in lowering labor costs.
HR and Responsiveness
Making the enterprise more responsive to product innovations and technological change is the basic aim of many of the management changes listed previously. Thus, downsizing, flattening he pyramid, empowering employees, and organizing around teams are aimed at facilitating communications and making it easier for decisions to be made and for the company to respond quickly to its customers’ needs and its competitors’ challenges.
HR and Service
Employee behavior is particularly important in service firms like banks and retail establishments. Therefore, HR plays a crucial role in service companies. It has been noted, for instance, that there are “quite a few [employees] who lack the temperament, maturity, social skills, and tolerance for frequent contact” that customer service jobs require, and that the first step in avoiding this problem is screening and selection.
HR and Employee Commitment
Intense global competition and the need for more responsiveness put a premium on employee commitment.
HR and Corporate Strategy
But perhaps the most striking change in HR’s role is its growing importance in developing and implementing strategy. Traditionally strategy – the company’s plan for how it will balance its internal strengths and weaknesses with external opportunities and threats in order to maintain a competitive advantage – was a job primarily for the company’s operating (line) managers.
Today things are different. Strategies increasingly depend on strengthening organization responsiveness and on building committed work teams, and quality oriented industrial environment, it’s often the firm’s employees themselves – its human resources – who provide the competitive key. It is thus now increasingly common to involve HR in the earliest stages of developing and implementing the firm’s strategic plan, rather than letting HR just react to it.
HRM – Global and Bangladesh Context
Importance of Human Resources Management has always been emphasized and stressed by the economics of all times since the very development of Economics as a Systematized body of human knowledge. Adam smith, in his famous book ‘The Wealth of Nation’s,’ has specially mentioned about it and included, “acquired and useful abilities of all the inhabitants or members of a society in his “fixed capital” Alfred Marshall known to be the father of Modern Economics emphasized the importance of Economics emphasized the importance of education as “a national investment” and according to him” the most valuable of all capital is that invested in human beings”
Paul Streeten et.al. (1981)recognized that there is a growing concern about the unevenness of progress and the evident deterioration in the human conditions in many parts of the world. In fact the fancy development models, such as Trickle Down Theory, Redistribution and Growth, Basic Needs Theory etc. could not produce the desired goals. In many cases, the fancy models produced ugly facts of starvation, social disintegration and deprivation. Therefore, the development experts in recent years discovered that people are the means and end of all development and emphasis has been to develop the individual in totality.
From the dawn of civilization, human resources had been considered an important factor for development. The administrative authorities as well as the economists are therefore, quite cautious of the proper utilization of the human resources. In order to make the most effective use of this factor, the developed nations have found out scientific ways and means. One of the objectives of those methods is to select right man in the right place. In recent years, devices to select right man for right position through ‘Professional Guidance and Counseling Programs’ and by various examinations and tests have also been innovated as a result of which the scope of proper and maximum utilization of human resources has become easy and wide.
Although in the fifties and sixties, emphasis was given on an increased production, meeting basic human needs gained priority in the seventies. The development goals in the eighties included, among other things, alleviation of poverty and reduction of social inequality. In the 1990s some new concerns have gained prominence in the development thinking. Currently development is viewed to be a pi process that seeks to increase the income of the poor though sustainable and productive activities and emphasizes on more qualitative aspects which were previously overlooked: such as self reliance, empowerment, participation, and human resources development While the earlier conceptualization ion of development is regarded as goods-oriented view of development9, what is currently being proposed can rightly be termed as “people-centered development. Islam emphasizes on the development of the moral values of mankind. The Maudju (subject matter) of the Holy Quran is: “man”. The principal objective of sending Prophets by Almighty Allah id to produce ‘perfect man’, The Revelation has come to teach purity and wisdom. This divine project put forward by the Almighty through his prophets is labeled as “Tajkiah”(Sanctification), which implies that “man” is the main engine of development, if he is instructed and trained. The principal objective of my study is to examine the perspective of Human Resources Management in BSB and to explain its implications for the development of Bangladesh.

An organization consists of positions that have to be staffed. Job analysis is the procedure through which you determine the duties of these positions and the characteristics of the people who should be hired for them. The analysis produces information on job requirements, which is then used for developing job descriptions (what the job entails and job specifications (what kind of people to hire for the job) analysis. A supervisor or HR specialist or HR specialist normally aims to collect one or more of the following types of information via the hob.
Information is usually collected on the actual work activities performed, such as cleaning, selling, teaching, or painting. Such a list may also indicate how, why, and when the worker performs each activity.
Information on human behaviors like sensing, communicating, decision making, and writing may also be collected. Included here would be information regarding human fob demands such as lifting weights, walking ling distances, and so on.
Machines, tools, equipment, and work aids used.
Included here would be information regarding products made, materials processed, knowledge dealt with or applied (such as finance or law), and services rendered (such as counseling or repairing).
Information is also collected regarding performance standards (in terms of quantity, quality, or speed for each job duty, for instance) by which an employee in this job will be evaluated.
Included here is information about such matters as physical working conditions, work schedule, and the organizational and social context – for instance, in terms of the number of people with whom the employee would normally have to interact. Also included here might be information regarding incentives for doing the job. As summarized in Figure 3.1, the information produced by the hob analysis is the basis for several interrelated HR management activities.

- Ø There is a less or more good relationship among the work force.
- Ø Senior and junior and officer and staff do not strictly maintain their status.
- Ø The office work place is like as their home.
- Ø They treat the visitors as friendly.
- Ø Some Officer are very busy some have no business.
- Ø All workers do their work traditionally.
- Ø The workers work when pressure is created. No body works spontaneously,
In the context of a developing economy like Bangladesh, where the need for formation of capital is pressing, where developments in the field of industrial and bank management are dynamic, and where financial crises accompanying pangs of economic growth are frequent, the challenges posed by HR Mare of great importance: and, as a sequel, exploring the possibilities of the application of HRM becomes a very relevant field of inquiry and research.
Problem In HRM
- Ø Absence of Motivation:
There is a few chance of promotion. The workers are in the same position lor a long time. There is no promotion for them. They work traditionally not take the job as a challenge
- Ø Lack of team speed:
There is no team speed of the workforce. They work as usual. Sometime, the important file and work are in freeze if any officer does not give importance on it.
- Ø Lake of work force:
In BSB the authorized 3rd and 4th class workers number is 699 but actual the activities are performed in delay. Some time the officers have to does the vacant ports work which ruin their important time.
- Ø Lack of Morality:
Some workers are morally weak. Sometime they do not perform their duty properly. They do work which they not authorize in some cases.
- Ø Lack of Moral teaching:
The human resources Management department recommends the training department only their regular work. But only regular work does not ensure the proper utilization of organizational researches. The moral learning is also necessary for ensuring their duties.
- Ø No fresh worker:
About 10 years, there is no new appointment. As a result. The few and old workers are transferred to one department to another department. The know / ledge of the world in changeable. The old workers do their performance according to the old model. So there is no radical change of the work. If the new fresh workers are appointed, the face of the bank will be changed.
- Ø Not follow service rules:
The Bank does not strictly follow service rules; many workers and officer come
in office not due time. Few actions are taken for them.
- Ø Political trade union:
The trade union of the BSB is politically elected. As a result the skill workers sometime deprive their promotion and facilities. Sometime only political reason one worker in transferred from department to another department.
- Ø No strong parallel business:
Some department workers are very busy. Some department workers are relaxed. They have no work. A key challenge facing organizations in the late 1990sisto continue to deliver sustained competitive advantage in the short term whilst at the same time preparing for longer-term success. Although the prime sources of competitive advantage in the past decades may have been access to financial resources or the use of technology, these are now viewed as necessary, but not sufficient. For many companies the sources of sustained competitive advantage lie not only in access to finance or capital, but within the organization, in people and processes capable of delivering the customer delight or rapid innovation which will place them ahead of competitors.
