 INTRODUCTION STRATEGY OF PREMIER BANK :

Premier Bank Limited has opened a quite few new branches outside and inside of Dhaka. It means that they are following the low cost saving strategy by increasing their selling. Premier Bank Limited has also considered of maintaining of effective information flow system as part of their core strategy. The company has executed a consistent strategy over the past decade by focusing on highly scalable, fee based securities servicing. Their strategy can be listed as follows:

  1. Business Review
  2. Partnership
  3. On-line banking
  4. Market Focus
  5. Use of Technology
  6. New service offering
  7. Integration of distribution channel
  8. Expand and diversity customer base

A dynamic organization must be supported with its structure. Premier Bank Limited consists of head office, principal branch and other 30 branches throughout the country. And the management style mostly resembles bureaucratic and authoritarian style. Premier Bank Limited imposes strict control and monitors over the activities of its employees.  According to the functions in head office and branch, Head office is considered as a cost center in a whole and branch is known as investment and profit center. Branch operates under the guideline of head office. Management command is downward flowing. All business functional activities such as human resource management, marketing etc must be supervised by head office, and branch has no power to make decision but execute decisions made by head office.

TREASURY DEPARTMENT:

The main task in this department is to transfer money from surplus side to excess side internally.  They borrow cash from branch with excess cash on hand and lend it to the branch with shortage of cash at any time in operation by issuing IBCA/IBDA. They also make short-term investment with other financial institutions to meet the need of cash. They used to do ratio analysis and other required analysis to assist the management about the condition of the bank in time to time. This part is very important for any bank to survive as the bank is running on about 95% debt financing.

SHARE DEPARTMENT:

Share Department is responsible of share transfer, issuing paid-up capital, payment of dividend etc. normally; there is a share department in the Head Office.

CORPORATE MARKETING DEPARTMENT (CMD):

The department is in charge of making marketing strategies and marketing budget at the beginning of the year. Particular activities are briefly shown as followings:

  • Liability marketing
  • Assets marketing
  • Branch expansion
  • Mess Media and event management
  • Introduction of new products
  • Preparation of brochures of new products

All the marketing strategies are made in the head office and then communicated to the branch.

HUMAN RESOURCE DEPARTMENT:

As usual, resource department mainly deals with job recruitment, different types of promotion, raising salary policies, various types of packaging. The aim is to create a dynamic environment by active and enthusiastic participation of individuals. Like every employees of the branch need to fill a leave form and submit it to the head of branch. The form contains who will be responsible for his work part when he/she will be in leave. The form also contains the purpose of the leave and the destination where he/she will be available during the leave period.

FINANCIAL ADMINISTRATION DEPARTMENT (FAD):

It prepares annual reports, collects different statement from branch offices periodically for management and decision- making. In addition, the department also makes budget of deposit, loan, profit, and expenditure monthly, quarterly and yearly. It is also in charge of comparison between budget and actual operations periodically. Any variance is recorded and considered as a mean of management.  If operations in any branch are better than the budget during a period, the branch is given bonus and encourage from head office by an official letter. On the other hand, if operation is worse than the budget for consecutive two periods, the branch is warned. In this case, accounting department would make new budget, which must be reached by the branch. Accounting department in branch firstly makes the budget accordingly, and then submits to accounting department in head office.  Head office will not announce it until it adjusts accordingly.

  INSTITUTE OF TRAINING:

It organizes different types of training programs. All the new Management Trainee will be trained through out the branch for three months and then he will be placed where suitable. This in-house training is being introduced recently, which is a great move, I think, by the top management. Again, there was a seminar, workshop arranged for the branch managers through Bangladesh Bank on regular intervals. There was a seminar on Asset-Liability Management in the head office during my internship period. All the branch managers are the participants in the seminar. PBL has collaboration with BIBM to give basic training on banking to almost all the employees.

INTRODUCTION of ORGANIZATIONAL CULTURE:

Any organization in the society creates it own organizational culture, which gives an invisible standard to its member. Organizational culture varies organization to organization. According to Mr. Josh W. Newstorm, “organizational culture is the set of assumptions, beliefs, values, and norms that are shared by an organization’s members. This culture may have been consciously created by its key members….” (P 102). The culture of PBL can be defined as vertical organization culture and a part of virtual type. Several characteristics of PBL organizational culture is listed as followings:

HIERARCHICAL DECISION

Referring to the organizational structure, PBL is a centralized organization. High –level executives make decisions and comparably low-level executives cannot make decisions, but participate. In a word, high-level managers have more power to be exercised than those managers in low-level.

 PUNCTUALITY

Employees, managers in Premier Bank Limited seldom come late after 8.30 am. And leave the office before 5 pm. actually, all managers, executives, and employees come before 8.30 am. And leave after 5 pm. This affects the members in PBL a lot.

 MAINTAINING ROUTINE JOB

Another characteristic of organizational culture of Premier Bank Limited is that all members deserve to maintain their routine job. Job rotation is hardly practiced. At the beginning of an employees entrance to the organization, the job is assigned will remain with him/her in most of time. Later he/she will be getting trained, promoted on the basis of this job task.

MOTIVATION-ORIENTED

Though maintaining a routine job high practiced in PBL, various types of incentives are being driven towards the employees’ performance. Performance reward, appreciated reward, promotions, holiday bonus, outstanding performance bonus, for example can be seen as strong incentives to employee’s routine job.

FREQUENT TRAINING

Premier Bank Limited has separate departments responsible of training programs, so there are many training programs held in a period regarding different banking field. It can be management training, IT training, operation related training etc.

NETWORKING

It is also a type of managerial tool. By networking in Premier Bank Limited, it means that’s services/products which are impossible to executed by Premier Bank Limited itself, or it is too costly to run it, Premier Bank Limited makes contracts with different agents to offer services/products to Premier Bank Limited’s customers. For an instance, the software used in IT department is the contract relationship between Premier Bank Limited and Software Company. Same in the case of Credit card service, on-line banking system. In all this cases, Premier Bank Limited does not maintain these but manage; the only thing is to make contract with the companies perfect at these jobs. As a result, these companies also become a part of SEBL. And this is used and considered as a characteristic of its culture.

 CO-OPERATIVE:

Managers and officers maintain a friendly working atmosphere, exchanging greetings, like a big family. Specially, officers are very co-operative and helpful towards the new employees, such as interns, trainees etc.

Organizational culture does affect the behavior of the members in Premier Bank Limited and it is also the reason that Premier Bank Limited could achieve such excellent achievement in short span of time.

Turnover Rate:

The performance of every bank is depending on the turnover rate. As a very promising and one of the top list banks, PBL has less turnover rate.

 Employee Dissatisfaction:

Human Resource Department says the department is always open for all employees. If anyone has any problem in their workplace, HRD is always there to help them. HR always willing to listen the objections and try to solve the employees’ problem. But from employees’ perspective, HRD is not playing such role to solve the employees’ problems. The department is not working effectively as the department mostly fails to survive their service fluently. Therefore, it seems to the employees that HRD of PBL is less effective then HRD of other banks.

  • Some employees think that top management should change because they are not cooperative and also biased.
  • Employee selection process is eye wash maximum employees are recruited depend on personal linkage.
  • Some employees said that there is more nepotism. Around 80% of employees are from Barisal.
  • If an employee wants to leave, he should replace someone for doing his responsibilities. Sometime it is very difficult for them. They think this type of replacement is duty of top management. But top management ignores those responsibilities.
  • Office start at 8:30 but other banks start at 9 am.
  • If an employee perform well & work hard, then he will not get promotion. But if a bad performer has a relation with top management then he get promotion earlier even twice a year.

RECOMMENDATION:

Few suggestions from management perspective can be given:

  • Authority has to assure at least 1(one) day visit of chief / Head of Human Resource every month in every branch to know the employees conditions and their problems.
  • Human Resource Division has to ensure not only to help the employees but also to hear their problems.
  • As the employees have to work from 8:30 AM to 6 PM employees do not feel interest of doing work at the perfect time. So HRD should reschedule the working hours from 9 AM to 5 PM to make the work flow effective.
  • HRD should maintain the promotion policy effectively. They have to minimize the promotional gaps. If they cannot minimize that the grievance will increase and employee motivation will decrease / dissatisfaction will increase.

Conclusion:

Every organization must have a goal to achieve. To achieve that goal organization must fixed its vision and mission. According to vision and mission, organization able to fulfill its target. So, every organization must have a Human Resource Department. Without proper management of HR, an organization can not achieve its goal. Premier Bank also has a strong Human Resource Department. The Human Resource Department of PBL works very effectively.Banking Sector no more depends only on a traditional method of banking. In this competitive world this sector has stretched its wings wide enough to cover any kind of financial services any where in the world. So, not only from the local banks but from foreign banks too the bank today faces a tough competition. The major task for banks, to survive in this competitive environment is by managing its Assets and Liabilities in a profound way. And also to acquire new advanced technology to cut down its operating expense giving a way to more profit. Only Human Resource Department can able to do this by focusing on staffing, administration, compensation & benefits as well as by training & development.

PBL in overall could do better in future if they give more thought in developing their Human Resource Division because only a modernized Human Resource Division only can give better result to an organization by developing its human resources and by making them effective and more productive. Human Resource Division become an effective department in an organization by introducing new technology, like computerizing their work process, which would save time and indeed reduce expense and give a way to provide more services to clients that will increase their non- interest income. This is a sign of large banks. They should also modify their training process, performance appraisal process etc for motivating their employees to become more productive and prepared them as an efficient employee.Comparing to the standards set PBL has already issued more compensation program as well as employee benefit programs. PBL should focus on the employee facilities and Human Resource Policies of their competitors and step by step develop their Human Resource Policy which will help to develop their manpower skilled as well as productive. PBL should give emphasis not only in giving the better compensation packages to their employees but also create a better working environment for the employees.
