into a different level. The practice of human resource management in recruiting people has made a
significant changed in the food industry across Bangladesh. Peoples food habit and as well as

MAJOR FINDINGS

RECRUITMENT PROCEDURE
BBQ Chicken uses an in-house function which ensures consistent recruitment from opening
to opening. As they use in-house functions, they have greater control on the recruitment
process and they can easily execute different aspects of recruitment properly.
Generally, they post the advertising on www.bdjobs.com. The applicants send their resumes
through bdjobs. Later on the Admin & HR Manager sorts out the resumes according to the
criteria.
There is fair and equal treatment in different categories of the jobs in BBQ Chicken. Male and
female employees are treated equally in BBQ Chicken. There is no gender discrimination.
There is no proper guideline in BBQ Chicken regarding the recruitment budget.
There is little effort of Admin &HR division for continuous development in recruitment
process. The world is changing and recruitment process as well. They are using the same
methods and strategies year after year because they are familiar with the practice and it is
working.

SELECTION PROCEDURE
The applicants send their resumes through bdjobs and own carrer mail address. These
resumes are then sorted for particular competencies. These sorted and varied resumes are then
entered in the database to weed out any probable entry mistakes.
The persons who are selected in the process are only contacted.
When selection took place, BBQ Chicken loses more qualified candidate because within this
time most of the candidates joined in another organizations.
In case of security guard, tea-boy and cleaner, they follow outsourcing. That is they hire the
employees from employment agencies. Those workers work on temporary basis in BBQ
Chicken. There is a contract between BBQ Chicken and the supplier.










10
RECOMMENDATIONS
Based on objectives, findings and analysis some recommendations have been developed. It would be
valuable for the HR to follow these:
The CVs of applicants should be sorted based on degree or skill as early as possible, which
will save valuable time to internal CV sourcing.
An online database of all employees should be developed so that every employee has
individual online profile account and more than one employee can access it at a time.
Customer service skill are needed some improvement and effective steps should be taken to
provide one stop service related training as early as possible.
There should be sufficient budget for recruitment and selection purpose.
For some valuable positions, selection decisions can be made centrally to avoid time.
Reference should not be used as selection criteria because there is a chance to select a wrong
person.

CONCLUSION
Recruitment is an important issue for any organization. Recruitment and selection allows an
organization to assess the vacancy and choose the best personnel who will lead the organization in
future. So the organization should give more emphasize on selecting a person. A person who can
carry forwarded the organization in terms of development, values and ethics. Mainly the precious
resource for any organization is their knowledge based efficient workers. The organizations should
more cautious on this issue to ensure the quality and ethics.
The recruitment process at BBQ Chicken to some extent is not done objectively and therefore lot of
bias hampers the future of the employees. That is why the search or headhunt of people should be of
those whose skill fits into the companys values. Most of the employees were satisfied but changes are
required according to the changing scenario as recruitment process has a great impact on the working
of the company as a fresh blood, new idea enters in the company.
Selection process is good but it should also be modified according to the requirements and should
job profile so that main objective of selecting the candidate could be achieved, that will
increased the productivity as well as revenue.
