  • They have many efficient employees, who have brought value clients with them in the bank
  • The higher paid up capital

  • Overall liquidity crisis in money market

Human Resource Structure of PBL

Premier Bank Limited divided their HR in three different types such as;

  1. Personnel Department.
  2. Disciplinary Department
  3. Test Key Department.

Personnel Department

Basically, personnel department doing some major duties such as; transfer, posting, promotion, recruitment, selection, retrenchment, resignation, retirement and training.

Disciplinary Department

These departments always watch where the offences occurred. In the Bank sector there are different offences,

  • In the Bank Volt money supposed to 2000000, but money existing in 1500000. Rest of the 500000 dealing manager in his own business.
  • This department also observe, if any worker does not obey rules and regulation in the Bank. Find out the particular employee.

If the above offence occurred, these departments punish the individual. They arrange a board which consistent one chairmen and two members. When it is proved that the individual employee is real criminal they punish the person. They dismiss or terminate those persons. In case of dismiss employee get return his provident fund money, on the other hand terminate the office will give all money which he desire.

Test Key Department

This is a computer coding system, which can make easier their internal banking system. There are many departments existing and rising in the Bank, such as;

  • Establishment Department.
  • Stationery and Recorder Department
  • Transport Department
  • Training Department

Recruitment

As a student of BBA we should clear about the difference between recruitment and selection. Recruitment means the process start from -when we think we need some employee in our organization and stop submitted CV/Resume of potential candidate.

In another sense “The process of discovering potential job candidates, it begins when new recruit are sought and ends when their application are submitted”

In case of Dilkusha Branch of PBL: The total recruitment processes maintain by head office. Branch office doesn’t have any authority to recruit employee. This Bank flow two types of recruitment process such as;

  1. Internal Recruitment
  2. External Recruitment

Internal recruitment:

 In the internal recruitment they give more emphasizes son, daughter and relatives of existing employee. Now a day PBL also recruit employee from those who already completed their internship from PBL with the recommendation of branch manager.

External Recruitment

Some time they advertisement in Daily news paper, weekly magazine as well as online job portal to attract the potential candidate. They attract not only experience candidate but also fresh graduate. They also give chance fresh graduate to learn banking work in the sense of internship.

Selection

The process of choosing from among candidates, from within the organization or outside, the most suitable person for future positions. Selection activities typically follow a standard pattern, beginning with an initial screening interview and concluding with the final employment decision.

HR Planning and strategic planning process of PBL

 At first Human Resources planning is very common phenomena of any organization. In generally HR planning maintains a process to recruitment or retrenchment organizational incumbent. In this include job analysis. In the job analysis three things is main job description (Duties, Responsibilities, and Accountabilities within the job), job speciation (knowledge, skill and abilities of job holder) and job evaluation (relative value, responsibility to distinguish other in terms of salary). The main things in the chart are demand for labor and supply of labor. When demands exceed supply then come to the point of recruitment. On the other hand, supply exceeds demand then retrenchment. Here, shows a process of Human Resource planning system.

In case of Dilkusha Branch of PBL

Socialization process fully depends on an individual employee. What he think about the company, what will be the really face, his adoption and last of all his output. Premier Bank generally not giving orientation in his new employees. Bank manager obviously introduce with his rest of the employee in the office. But this branch should

 

Training & Development

Training is a learning experience, which seeks a relatively permanent change in an individual that will improve the ability to perform the job.

Whenever HRM embarks on the hiring process, it attempts to search and secure a candidate whom we labeled as the “Best” possible candidate. And while HRM professional pride themselves on bring able to determine those are qualified versus those who are not, the fact remains that few, if any, new employees can truly come into an organization and immediately become fully functioning 100 percent performance.

Employee training– employee training designated to assist employees in acquiring better skills for their current jobs. The focus of employee training is on current job-skill requirements.

Employee development– employee development designed to help the organization ensure that the necessary talent internal of meeting future human resources needs. The focus of employee development is on a future position within the organization for which the employee required additional competencies.

Career development programs are designed to assist employees in advancing their work lives. The focus of career development is to provide the necessary information and assessment in helping employees realize their career goals. However, career development is the responsibilities of the individual not the organization.

Organization Development deals with facilitating system wide change in the organization. The focus of organization development is to change the attitudes and value of employees according to new organization strategic directions give employee orientation.

 

Training Divide in two approaches such as:

On the job training:

In simple we can say that training within the job. Learning by doing. Employee are placed in actual work situation and made them appear to be immediately productive. Often, it is informal, as when an experienced worker shows a trainee how to perform the job tasks. It may divide in two types-

  • Apprenticeship program.
  • Job instruction training

Off the job training:

Training process out of the jobs. Training outside the organization or from the real work place, may be in another organization or in a training institution. Off the job may divide in some types-

  • Classroom Lecture
  • Videos and Films
  • Simulation Exercises.
  • Computer-based Training.
  • Vestibule Training.
  • Programmed Instruction

In case of PBL (Premier Bank Limited)

The Premier Bank Limited has their own training institute is called PBLTI (Premier Bank Limited Training Institute) in their own premises. This is situated at 42, Kemal Atarturk Avenue, (Iqbal Center) Banani, and Dhaka.

But PBL also conduct training in out side of their premises like; BIBM (Bangladesh Institute of Bank Management), BBTA (Bangladesh Bank Training Academy)

Motivation

In a single word we can say that inspiring employee to doing work. The word “Motivation” is often used to describe certain sorts of behaviors. Motivation is a desire to achieve a goal, combined with the energy to work towards that goal.

Positive and Negative Motivation

Sometimes a distinction is made between positive and negative motivation. Positive motivation is a response which includes enjoyment and optimism about the tasks that you are involved in. Negative motivation involves undertaking tasks because there will be undesirable outcomes.

What seems to work best for most people is to understand that both positive and negative motivations are useful, and that sometimes students will need to search for motivation.

Performance Appraisal

Evaluating an employee’s current and /or past performance related to his performance standards. There are processes of performance appraisal;

There are three main method of “Performance Appraisal”, these are

Absolute Standard: It may divide in some parts;

  • The Essay Appraisal
  • The critical Appraisal
  • The checklist Appraisal
  • The adjective rating scale Appraisal
  • The force-choice Appraisal
  • The behaviorally anchored rating scales

Relative Standard: It may also divide in some parts;

  • Group order Ranking
  • Individual Ranking
  • Paired Comparison

Objective: It should be clear objectives in top to bottom. In another sense it is called Management by Objective (MBO). In the MBO are some important parts;

  • Action Planning
  • Self Control
  • Periodic Reviews
  • Goal Setting

Performance Appraisal: A Case Study on PBL, Dilkhusha Branch

The Premier Bank Limited conducts a good appraisal method. There are some main objectives to doing this performance Appraisal. The objectives are- it’s play an integral role in the employer’s performance management process, help in planning for correcting deficiencies and reinforce things done correctly, in identifying employee strengths, weakness, are useful for career planning, affect the employer’s salary raise decision.

The Bank think that, employees are evaluated on how well they accomplished a specific set of objectives that have been determined to be critical in the successful completion  of their job. A “Performance Appraisal” method that includes mutual objectives setting and evaluation based on the attainment of the specific objectives.

Department’s and individual’s objectives are set using the organizational overall objectives as guidelines. At the individual level, the supervisor and employee jointly identify those goals that are critical to fulfilling the requirements of the job as determined by job analysis. This set includes identifying the activities, necessary to accomplish the objectives, establish the critical relationship between these activities, estimating the time requirement for each activities and determining the resources required to complete each activity.

Benefits and Salary Structure of Premier Bank Ltd.

Benefits: In the above employee also get some benefits such as;

  • Two festival bonuses: Mainly Muslim employees are got two Eid bonuses which are equal to basic salary. On the other some non-Muslim are also got such festival bonuses in the time of holy Eid.
  • Two incentive bonuses: These bonuses get only manager in any branch. In every year employee get two more bonuses which are called incentive bonuses. For this bonuses give manager performance based.
  • Gratuity: The last time of an employees working like, the employee get some money which is called gratuity. This system also in this bank.
  • Group insurance: The employees who are work in the branch, they all have an insurance. It is called group insurance. If unfortunately any worker fall an accident from this insurance policy he/she get money for their well being.

 

Salary Structure:  PBL has well defined salary structure for their employees. This salary structure is added in the next page.

Termination

If any employee are out of the job in some cases is called termination. There are certain circumstances where – even though a complaint is within our jurisdiction – we can dismiss it without considering its merits. This is sometimes called ‘early termination’.

In case of Dilkusha Branch of PBL

Premier Bank Limited has a long process to termination which maintains head office. If the office terminates any employee then office gives all desire benefits which they committed such as graduate, provident fund and all. On the other hand employees decide to leave the office then they could not give any benefits. Employees are terminated mainly some unavoidable circumstances as well as when they could not find in jab satisfaction. But in the aspect of Dilkusha Branch all the employees are satisfied with their work. So they are not terminated from this branch.

 

Findings

In my internship period, I am worked at The Premier Bank Limited in Dilkusha branch 28, June 2008 to 30, September 2008. At that time, I find many good thing as well as bad. Good things make me delighted. During my internship period I felt that The Premier Bank Ltd has to improve in such areas:

  • The Premier Bank Ltd provide internship to the fresher but they take lot of time for processing, for that reason potential candidate feel discouraged to apply for internship.
  • The Premier Bank Ltd has a well structured HRD but they don’t have the capability to fulfill the branch requirement.
  • The Premier Bank Ltd has to improve their official website and must include their annual report in the website as a specific link from that every interested body can easily access and download their specific data.
  • Human Resource is the key component in any organization; if it is skilled it will be more helpful to go ahead.

Recommendations

As an intern, I don’t have any authority to suggest them. But through my report I can write their limitation (In Findings). These are the following recommendation are suggested for The Premier Bank Ltd.

  • It is good they give chance an individual to choose branch which he work comfortable.
  • The Premier Bank Limited has a web site, but there is not enough information about their company, especially HRM related. They have to enrich their web site.
  • They give fresher to doing internship, but they are not recruiting themselves. Ultimately their works (they teach us about work as well as corporate culture) become zero. Because, the student work any other firm which they teach. So, I think they should select some fresher among the whole.

In my points of view the above factors are main, which they have to improve. There are also some factors. So, they should take action as soon as possible.

 

Conclusion

Every organization has some good side as well as bad side. The Premier Bank Limited also many good side. The Premier Bank Limited is very willing to provide internship. The existing employees are very helpful of new comers. The employees of HR department are very much willing to provide information about the company. Their internal banking system is very fast, which can satisfy customer demand. I would like to special thanks to The Premier Bank Limited to giving me chance to being a part of their honorable organization. As it is an esteem organization, so I closely observe their HR practice and general banking system.
