Chapter 2: Human Resource Management of IIDFC.

2.1 Defining Human Resource Management.


Human Resource Management (HRM) is both an academic theory and a business
practice that addresses the theoretical and practical techniques of managing a workforce.
The theoretical discipline is based primarily on the assumption that employees are
individuals with varying goals and needs, and such should not be thought of as basic
business resources, such as trucks and filing cabinets. The field takes a positive view of
workers, assuming that virtually all wish to contribute to the enterprise productively, and
that the main obstacle to their endeavors are lack of knowledge, insufficient training, and
failures of process.
HRM is seen by practitioners in the filed as a more innovative view of workplace
management than the traditional approach. Its techniques force the managers of an
enterprise to express their goals with specificity so that they can be understood and
undertaken by the workforce and to provide the resource needed for them to successfully
accomplish their assignments. As such, HRM techniques, when properly practiced, are
expressive of the goals and operating practices of the enterprise overall.
Nowadays, the more traditional synonyms such as personnel management are
often used in a more restricted sense to describe those activities that are necessary in the
recruiting of a workforce, providing its members with payroll and benefits, and
administrating their work-life needs. These activities can require regulatory knowledge
and effort, and enterprise can benefit from the recruitment and development of personnel
with these specific skills.
The goal of human resource management is to help an organization to meet
strategic goals by attracting, and maintaining employees and also to manage them
effectively. The basic premise of the academic theory of HRM is that humans are not
machines; therefore it is needed to have an interdisciplinary examination of people in the
workplace. Fields such as psychology, industrial and organizational psychology,
sociology, and critical theories: postmodernism, post-structuralism play a major role.

Chapter 4. Description of my work in IIDFC

Types of duties I performed and works I learnt.


Being a part of the HR department of IIDFC, there are plenty of duties and
responsibilities that are needed to be performed. Among all the duties and responsibilities of
the HR department, pay slip of every month, CV sorting, salary sheet update, etc. related
activities are the major part of my works. During my internship period at IIDFC, my major
duties are as follows:

* Preparing Pay Slip of each employee:


At the beginning of every month all the employees are paid a sum of amount in
taka as the salary of the last month. A pay slip is given to each and every employee, from
the messengers, Junior Executives to Deputy Managing Director, where all the details of
the pay is mentioned. For example, the basic salary, the amount for the car facilities,

22
medical allowances, entertainment allowances, etc. and the total salary. These are the pay
slips which are given individually to all the employees of IIDFC for their confirmation,
and based on the pay checks are given to them.
* CV Sorting:
During the period of my internship, IIDFC has decided to recruit four officers for
four different posts. More than one thousand CVs have been submitted by the interested
candidates. Among all the CVs the specific CVs for the exact posts are sorted out, along
with checking the information in the CVs which fulfills the requirement of the particular
posts, for example, required qualification, experience, etc. After sorting the CVs are sent
to the recruitment board for the selection. Among those twenty five CVs are selected for
each post. The detail information of those candidates is entered into the database for
further use of the recruitment board.
* Computerizing the salary information of the employees:
Till 2009 IIDFC had no computerized system for the salary information of each
employee. All the information was saved manually in hard copies. From the beginning of
2010 IIDFC has started to store the salary information in the computer database system.
Since IIDFC started its business, all the salary information was saved in hard copies and
according to those copies the information is fed into the computer database system.

Chapter 5: Conclusion.
It was very finicky to work in the environment of one of the largest financial
institutions in Bangladesh. IIDFC provides one of the best financial services to their
customers and also their employee that is conducted by HR Division. By working in the
HR department the knowledge was learnt would be helpful enough to sustain with real
world situation.
