Thesis Report on Banking Industry in Bangladesh

1.1 Introduction
The employment culture is changing in Bangladesh. It is now relatively common to change jobs frequently, rather than to grow with one company throughout the employment life. This kind of voluntary turnover directly affects the performance of the organization. So now all organizations are highly concerned to keep their valuable employees. Each day completed by an employee is an investment to an organization; to leave before the full term is to get no return on the investment. As banking is one of the vital service industry for any country and performing a number of roles in the economy, so it has been chosen by me for this study. Like all other industries, banking sector in our country is also facing the employee perception towards compensation problem. It is needless to say, healthy banking system and healthy economies seem to go together. In order to ensure that, banking sectors should focus on the factors, which are primarily responsible for employees compensation practices in the organization. This paper mainly tries to focus on employee perceptions towards compensation practices on five banking industry in Bangladesh.

1.2 Objective of the Study
1.2.1 General objective:
The general objective of this proposal will be, to express the practical experience by working in a division and to link the theoretical knowledge with its application in the real life situation. The objective of the first part of this proposal is to familiarize with the compensation practices of banking industry.
1.2.2 Proposal objective:
Understand the basic principles and major elements of compensation.
Understand the various processes in compensation – Job Analysis, Job Descriptions, Job Evaluation and Compensation Surveys.
Determine and explain what makes up a sound and effective compensation and benefits program.
To identify the different types of compensation practice method.
To find out the level of satisfaction of employees.
1.3 Methodology
The methodology of the study followed by the following through processes: Study design can be termed as a basic Descriptive. Sources and collection of data as an observation method.
1.3.1 Primary sources:
• The primary data was gathered through informally discussed with different levels of employees in different banking organization
• Interview with the executives and officers.
1.3.2 Secondary sources:
• Published documents
• Official files
• Relevant books, newspapers, journals and websites.

1.4 Limitation
The study covers only a specific region of Bangladesh and the study does not concentrate to all the part of the banking industry. The sample size is not sufficient for identifying the influential factors which are relevant for improving the performance of employees according to their deserved satisfaction. Another limitation of the study is the unavailability of information, lack of knowledge and the support from the others. A major problem is created from the organizations viewpoint because they feel that their information will be utilized for some other purposes.

Literature Review

2.1 Literature Review

Lyndsay Swinton in her article “How to Increase Your Work and Life Satisfaction:
Put Abraham Maslow Theory into Practice” described a relationship between Maslow’s hierarchies of needs with Herbergz theory. Maslow’s theory state a people needs hierarchy with basic needs at base followed by security needs, social needs, esteem needs and self actualization needs. She is of the opinion that up to esteem needs level employee motivation or satisfaction can be maintained by factors which Herbergz called hygiene factors. This includes salary, benefits, job security, company policy etc while to deal with people at self actualization level factors known as motivators would be needed. This includes employee achievement, employee recognition, and employee growth. By keeping in mind this relationship among two basic theories of management organization may find it easy to manage their HR and other operations. Ahmed Belaid Kridan and Jack Steven Goulding in their research paper “A case study on knowledge management implementation in the banking sector” are of the view that knowledge management system could play an integral part in increasing any organization’s performance and can help it to compete in such highly competitive environment as today’s. They say that knowledge management system if applied can bring improvements in decision making, increase in customer value, improving relationships with consumers and bringing new value in to sight by including the concept of innovation. G.S. Sureshchandar, Chandrasekharan Rajendaran, R.N. Anantharaman and T.J. Kamalanabhan in their research paper “Management’s perception of total quality service in the banking sector of a developing economy- A critical analysis” studied banking sector of India and analyzed how different banks apply concept of total quality service in their functions. They found that these applications are inconsistent and incongruent with in all banks. Which makes it highly sophisticated sector. According to them banks of India can be divided into three groups based upon their perception about total quality services in operations.
(Barney, 1998; Wright, 1998) describes that although human resources are accepted to be organization’s most important assets yet organization’s decision often depicts contradiction with this belief. They further say that HR should not be neglected because they can bring competitive advantage to organization.
Therefore they should be managed with equal importance with other functions of the business. (Huselid, 1995) has emphasized on the fact that usage of high performance work practices i.e. comprehensive employee recruitment, Incentive compensation and performance management, extensive employee training and involvement programs surely increase competence of employees, it increase their motivation and reduce turnover. This results in retention of quality employees and also is a useful way to eradicate poor performers from the organization.
Nowadays organizations are been persuaded by competitive environment to apply a progressive HR strategy. As stated with the relevance of (Pfeffer, 1994) “The past decade has presented with many testimonials to the value of progressive HRM practices and system of such practices. In particular, employee participation, empowerment and job redesign, extensive employee training and performance contingent incentive compensation, are widely believed to improve the performance of organizations.” (Delaney, 1996; Huselid, 1996). Human Resource management and productivity of organization has a direct relationship with each other. If employees are managed appropriately i.e. job analysis, recruitment, training, motivational tools like compensation etc they are destined to give high performance in their operations so will improve the overall productivity of the organization. (Ichniowski, 1997; Shaw, 1997; Prennushi, 1997) while Thomas E. Catanzaro (2001) in his article Compensation & Motivation described the effects of compensation over employee motivation. He stated that compensation has a profound effect over employee motivation. He also discussed several factors of compensation which include both intrinsic and extrinsic factors and their possible effects over motivation in detail. He also emphasized that monetary values are not the only motivators but non monetary factors have more importance towards motivating employees. In Hong Kong, base salary, merit pay, year-end bonus, annual leave, mortgage loan, and profit sharing were the most important factors to retain and motivate employees. In China, base salary, merit pay, year-end bonus, housing provision, cash allowance, overtime allowance, and individual bonus were the most important factors to retain and motivate employees. (Chiu, 2002; Luk, 2002; Tang, 2002) Reward and recognition programs can positively affect motivation, performance and interest within an organization. While a little more problematic, team-based incentives, if designed appropriately, can also encourage and support a range of positive outcomes. (Milne, 2007) Promotion and wages positively influence employees’ work motivation. A comparison of the relative strengths of the effects reveals that fair promotion was a more powerful motivator than wage level and wage increase. The reason why fairness in promotion was more effective than wage to motivate employees was discussed in light of the unique career system existing in Japanese companies and the agency problems between companies and their supervisors. (Takahashi, 2006) Explores past and present attitudes of employees concerning work-related motivational factors. Understanding the factors that employees consider motivating lends insight to the rewards to which they more positively respond. It compares the results of four motivation surveys conducted in 1946, 1980, 1986 and 1992. The comparisons revealed that employees’ motivational preferences vary over time. In addition, the results of the 1992 survey indicate that the factors that motivate today’s workers are more extrinsic than they used to be. Although employees differ on how they rank these factors, they overwhelmingly selected “good wages” as the top motivator. A good wage is an extrinsic reward with intrinsic potency. On the surface “good wages” seem to be purely extrinsic. Yet, at a deeper level, monetary rewards communicate what the company values and affect employees’ emotional and familial wellbeing. (Wiley, 1997)

Compensation Data of Banks

5.1 Compensation & Benefit Plan
It’s easy to think “dollars per hour” when thinking about compensation. Successful compensation packages, however, are more like a total rewards system, containing non-monetary, direct and indirect elements. Non-Monetary Compensation can include any benefit an employee receives from an employer or job that does not involve tangible value. This includes career and social rewards such as job security, flexible hours and opportunity for growth, praise and recognition, task enjoyment and friendships. Direct compensation is an employee’s base wage. It can be an annual salary, hourly wage or any performance– based pay that an employee receives, such as profit–sharing bonuses. Indirect Compensation is far more varied, including everything from legally required public protection programs such as Social Security to health insurance, retirement programs, paid leave, childcare or housing.
5.2 Definition of Compensation and Benefit
Pay and compensation
Pay is an important feature of human resource management – after all, it is the main reason why people work. It is a sensitive and controversial area that has been extensively debated at both practical and theoretical levels. In the US the term ‘compensation’ is used to encompass everything received by an employed individual in return for work. For example, Milcovich et al (2001: 6) state that:
“Employees may see compensation as a return in exchange between their employer and themselves, as an entitlement for being an employee of the company, or as a reward for a job well done” (original emphases).
Compensation management involves the analysis and effective control of employee remuneration and covers salary and all benefits. It assesses the nature and extent of rewards and the way they are delivered as well as considering their effect on both the organization and staff.
From in depth research we have that compensation is the benefit package for the employees that are offered by the organization, such as flexible working schedules, insurance (health, dental, eye) etc.
Some definitions of compensation and benefit plan by different author are given below:
All forms of pay or rewards going to employees and arising from their employment (DESSLER, 1997)
Compensation refers to every type of reward that individuals receive in return for their labor. (MONDY AND NOE, 1993)
Material and psychological payoffs for working (KREITNER, 2004) encouraging employees to work and be committed to organization toward achieving organizational goals and objectives (Floyd & Wooldridge, 1994:49; Guth & Macmillan, 1986:303).
Employees’ commitment reduces turnover but increases performance (Angle & Perry, 1981:12), and employee can only be committed when their needs are met and fulfilled by their organizations (Maslow, 1954:122). Maslow (1954)
Vroom (1964:134) asserts that the expectation (reward) of employees on task performed motivates and encourages them to be committed.
Thus, the higher the expectation of workers, the greater the commitment. On the other hand, the lesser the expectation of workers, the lower the commitment (Martin & Shawn, 1984:273)
The reward or compensation people receive for their contribution to an organization includes monetary and non-monetary components.
• Remuneration – money paid for services or work done. Remuneration does not simply compensate employees for their efforts – it also has an impact on the recruitment and retention of talented people.
• Total remuneration/Reward- includes both monetary and non monetary rewards provided for services or work done.
• Incentives- designed to encourage employees to perform in a certain manner and commonly take the form of a payment to stimulate greater output or improved quality. E.g. stock option, discounts, free memberships, lump sum pay etc.
• Benefits- indirect financial payments which employees are legally entitled to receive. E.g. paid annual leave, sick leave.
The term ‘reward management’ covers both the strategy and the practice of pay systems.
There are two basic types of pay schemes, although many organizations have systems which include elements of both:
• Fixed levels of pay. Wages or salaries which do not vary from one period to the next except by defined pay increases, generally on annual basis. There may be scales of payments determined by age, responsibility or seniority. Most ‘white-collar’ jobs were paid in this way until recently.

• Reward linked to performance. The link may be daily, weekly, monthly or annualized. Payment for any one period varies from that for any other period, depending on quantity or quality of work. Sales functions are commonly paid on the basis of turnover; manual and production workers may be paid according to work completed or items produced. Catering staff typically rely on direct payment from satisfied customers in the form of service charges or tips (gratuities).

Employee Perception about their compensation

6.1 Employee Satisfaction
Employee satisfaction is a measure of how happy workers are with their job and working environment. Keeping morale high among workers can be of tremendous benefit to any company, as happy workers will be more likely to produce more, take fewer days off, and stay loyal to the company. There are many factors in improving or maintaining high employee satisfaction, which wise employers would do well to implement.
To measure employee satisfaction, many companies will have mandatory surveys or face-to-face meetings with employees to gain information. Both of these tactics have pros and cons, and should be chosen carefully. Surveys are often anonymous, allowing workers more freedom to be honest without fear of repercussion. Interviews with company management can feel intimidating, but if done correctly can let the worker know that their voice has been heard and their concerns addressed by those in charge. Surveys and meetings can truly get to the center of the data surrounding employee satisfaction, and can be great tools to identify specific problems leading to lowered morale.
Many experts believe that one of the best ways to maintain employee satisfaction is to make workers feel like part of a family or team. Holding office events, such as parties or group outings, can help build close bonds among workers. Many companies also participate in team-building retreats that are designed to strengthen the working relationship of the employees in a non-work related setting. Camping trips, paintball wars and guided backpacking trips are versions of this type of team-building strategy, with which many employers have found success.
Of course, few workers will not experience a boost in morale after receiving more money. Raises and bonuses can seriously affect employee satisfaction, and should be given when possible. Yet money cannot solve all morale issues, and if a company with widespread problems for workers cannot improve their overall environment, a bonus may be quickly forgotten as the daily stress of an unpleasant job continues to mount.
If possible, provide amenities to your workers to improve morale. Make certain they have a comfortable, clean break room with basic necessities such as running water. Keep facilities such as bathrooms clean and stocked with supplies. While an air of professionalism is necessary for most businesses, allowing workers to keep family photos or small trinkets on their desk can make them feel more comfortable and nested at their workstation. Basic considerations like these can improve employee satisfaction, as workers will feel well cared for by their employers.
The backbone of employee satisfaction is respect for workers and the job they perform. In every interaction with management, employees should be treated with courtesy and interest. An easy avenue for employees to discuss problems with upper management should be maintained and carefully monitored. Even if management cannot meet all the demands of employees, showing workers that they are being heard and putting honest dedication into compromising will often help to improve morale.
The key elements of employee satisfaction are:
1) Sense of purpose
2) Fair compensation
3) A feeling of appreciation
4) A feeling of participation in the way their jobs are done
5) A management style that incorporates coaching, encouraging, and empowering
6.2 Employee Dissatisfaction:
Here is the description of this interview analysis:
Briefly, we asked our respondents to describe periods in their lives when they were exceedingly happy and unhappy with their jobs. Each respondent gave as many “sequences of events” as he could which met certain criteria including a marked change in feeling, a beginning and an end, and contained some substantive description other than feelings and interpretations.
The proposed hypothesis appears verified. The factors on the right that led to satisfaction (achievement, intrinsic interest in the work, responsibility, and advancement) are mostly unipolar; that is, they contribute very little to job dissatisfaction. Conversely, the dis-satisfiers (company policy and administrative practices, supervision, interpersonal relationships, working conditions, and salary) contribute very little to job satisfaction.

To better understand employee attitudes and motivation, Frederick Herzberg performed studies to determine which factors in an employee’s work environment caused satisfaction or dissatisfaction. He published his findings in the 1959 book The Motivation to Work. The studies included interviews in which employees where asked what pleased and displeased them about their work. Herzberg found that the factors causing job satisfaction (and presumably motivation) were different from those causing job dissatisfaction. He developed the motivation-hygiene theory to explain these results. He called the satisfiers motivators and the dissatisfies hygiene factors, using the term “hygiene” in the sense that they are considered maintenance factors that are necessary to avoid dissatisfaction but that by themselves do not provide satisfaction.

The following table presents the top six factors causing dissatisfaction and the top six factors causing satisfaction, listed in the order of higher to lower importance.

Leading to satisfaction

Leading to dissatisfaction

Achievement

Company policy

Recognition

Supervision

Work itself

Relationship with boss

Responsibility

Work conditions

Advancement

Salary

Growth

Relationship with peers

 

Herzberg reasoned that because the factors causing satisfaction are different from those causing dissatisfaction, the two feelings cannot simply be treated as opposites of one another. The opposite of satisfaction is not dissatisfaction, but rather, no satisfaction. Similarly, the opposite of dissatisfaction is no dissatisfaction.
