Human Resource Management Practice in Partex Group of Bangladesh

...Human Resource Management Practice in Partex Group of Bangladesh [pic][pic] Human Resource Management Practice in Partex Group of Bangladesh   The paper entitled “A Common Currency for Bank: Is it feasible or a pipe dream.” an endeavor is made to examine the suitability of Human Resource Management Practice in Partex Group of Bangladesh for a suitable currency on the basis of three criteria viz., intensity of trade, shock symmetry and homogeneity of economies.   In planning for international marketing organizations need a clear picture of the steps involved. “Strategy” gives such a picture. Their vision, unfortunately, remains unfulfilled. Despite lofty declarations and an ever inflating agenda for multi-dimensional cooperation among the seven member-states of company of Partex Group, Operators should manage their Banks’ portfolio on the basis of target customers’ needs and expectations. The outlook for change on the regional horizon woefully remains illusive. The meaning and prevalence of HRM are topics that continue to attract debate and disagreement. As a consequence, practitioners and textbook authors use a diverse and sometimes contradictory range of interpretations. We found that HRM has a variety of definitions but there is general agreement that it has a closer fit with business strategy than previous models, specifically personnel management. The early models of HRM take either a ‘soft’ or a ‘hard’ approach, but economic circumstances are more likely to......

Practice & Problems of Human Resource Department of Bangladesh Army

...PRACTICE & PROBLEMS OF HUMAN RESOURCE DEPARTMENT OF BANGLADESH ARMY INTRODUCTION 1. Human beings are the most important resources in an organization. A firm’s / organization’s success depends on the capabilities of its members. Most problems, challenges, opportunities and frustrations in an organization are people related. Human Resource Management is one of the toughest duties of a manager or leader since humans differ in terms of attitudes, values, aspirations, motivations, assumptions, psychology, and life goals. Looking at today’s competitive world, managerial level staff will require more conceptual and strategic skills. Managers have to be proactive, able to anticipate technological developments and prepare their staff for whatever technological changes that might take place. This will be a successful task only when the HRM itself is fully aware of those changes and has the means to deal with them. HR managers have a number of roles to fulfill. They are the guardians of the manpower- the key assets of the organizations. They are also counselor and protector of employees and directly responsible for their effectiveness in the organization. They need to do their jobs in keeping with the existing laws, rules and regulations of the organization, and promote harmony at the workplace. This has direct bearing in a healthier and more attractive work environment. The success or failure of HR depends also on the top management’s recognition of the importance of HRM,......

Human Resource Policies and Practices

...HR Policies & Practices: Gender Diversity, Equality, & Leadership Abstract The number of women obtaining higher levels of education and positions in their careers has increased, but the number of women obtaining management and executive positions has remained stagnant. Human resource policies and practices’ follow ethical guidelines, but in practicality are more difficult to apply in the workforce. Human resource practices and policies may be influenced by the overall mindset of a company. The barriers that prevent women from achieving management and executive positions are the same barriers that prevent human resource policies and practices’ from being applied. The gaps in gender equality and wages, created by the barriers, can be discouraging to women from achieving high-level positions. Overcoming the barriers is a task in undoing the mindset that has been instilled deeply within society. Introduction Studies have shown that companies who promote female gender equality surpass their competitors on every measure of profitability, yet women are failing to attain high-level positions. Possible reasons for the persistent wage and gender gap between men and women in senior leadership positions can be found by reviewing current data on women in the workplace, studies on the correlation between gender diversity in senior management and company performance, and literature on gender behavioral differences in the workplace. Women play an increasingly significant......
