INTRODUCTION

1.1 Introduction
The necessity Recruitment and Selection practices activities cannot be ignored in any ways
because of its dependency in the banking sector. Recruitment and selection is a major human
resource management (HRM) function as it encompasses all organizational practices and
decisions. It has been argued that in order for an organization to build and sustain the
competitive advantage, proper staffing is critical. Recent technological advances,
globalization, social trades and changes within organizations have bought new challenges for
recruitment and selection.

Uttara Bank Limited (UBL) is one of the largest and oldest private commercial Bank of
Bangladesh. The Bank was formally known as the Eastern Banking Corporation Limited
which started journey on & from 28/ 1/1965. From that period of time, it has been expanding
its operation with years of experience to serve the clients as well as the country. Uttara Bank
Ltd (UBL) Limited had been a nationalized bank in the name of UBL under the Bangladesh
Bank (Nationalization) order 1972, formerly known as the Eastern banking. Corporation
Limited which was started functioning on and from 28.1.1965. Consequent upon the
amendment Of Bangladesh bank (Nationalization) order 1972, the UBL was converted into
UBL as a public limited company in the year 1983. The UBL was incorporated as a banking
company on 29.6.1983 and obtain business commencement certificate on 21.8.1983. The
bank floated its shares in the year 1984.

Uttara Bank Ltd (UBL) a various condition where employees are needed. Requisition can be
sent Newspaper or online to the HR and there is a internal requisition from that is use to
collect the information of requisition. Advertise can be publish on difference job site or it also
publish by UBL own web site and defiantly also on Newspaper.

Potential applicants are screened via telephone, in order to confirm their relevant skills,
experience and availability. Sometime Uttara bank use work sampling process, its a device
of selection process where the candidates have to perform a part of his or her job.

1.3 Rationality of the study

The study was conducted to evaluate the human resource department and Uttara bank Ltd
overall recruitment and selection process and practices. Due to the increased competition of
the increased number of commercial banks and the growing economy, the expectations of the
customers have also increased than ever before. Realizing the present condition, banks,
especially the commercial banks are trying to elevate their banking service as much as
reachable to their customers. I decided to find out the different human resource management
functioned practices regarding and selection process that is used inside the bank.

1.4 Literature Review


In this part the researcher tried to analyze the history and some the recent research on the
topic. Discussion on some previous thesis on recruitment and selection is summarized below.

Braun S.A (1995) focuses on strategies to conduct effective interviews in this article
whis provides a particular step-by-step guide for conducting job interviews. This
paper is suitable for readers interested in tips on improving recruitment selection
procedures.
Montgomery, (1996) According to recruitment is on matching the capabilities and
inclinations of prospective candidates against the demands and rewards inherent in a
given job.
Tailors, P (1998) outlines seven commonly held misconceptions about recruitment
and selection practices in his article. Areas discussed include the validity of various
recruitment and selection measures (e.g interviewing , reference checks),the
conditions necessary to maximize the effectiveness of this practices, and common
mistaken perceptions of the interview process. This article is most useful for readers
increased in workforce development theory and research.
Jovanovic, (2004) recruitment is a process of attracting a pool of high quality
applicants so as to select the best among them. For this reason, top performing
companies devoted considerable resources and energy to creating high selection
systems. Recruitment and selection process are important practices for human
resource management, and are crucial in affecting organizational success.
Professor Fiona Patterson, Dr Maura kerrin, and Geralding Gatto-Roissard (2007)
review the current appointments process for Consultant Recruitment in Scotland and

2
consider the findings in relation to best practice selection and recruitment practices.
They find out that the current appointments process for consultant recruitment in
Scotland is not working efficiently. They showed how selection and recruitment
methods could deliver benefits for both individuals and organigations.
David M Williams (2008) addresses the problem of the identification of leadership
capabilities prior to the recruitment and selection of leaders through the development
of a conceptual model that links the intent of the leadership role with performance
outcomes and the context in which the leadership role resides.

Recruitment & Selection process of UBL

4.1 Discussions about Recruitment:

Recruitment refers to the process of attracting, screening, and selecting a qualified person for
a job. At the strategic level it may involve the development of an employer brand which
includes an employee offering.

So by the definition The process of identifying and hiring the best-qualified candidate (from
within or outside of an organization) for a job vacancy, in a most timely and cost effective
manner.

The recruitment phase of the hiring process takes place when the company tries to reach a
pool of candidates through job postings on company and external websites, job referrals, help
wanted advertisements, college campus recruitment, social media recruiting, etc.

Job applicants who respond to the recruitment efforts of the company are then screened to
determine if they are qualified for the job.

Selected candidates are invited to interviews and other methods of assessment. Employers
may check the background of prospective employees, as well as check references prior to
making a job offer and hiring the top candidate for the position

The stages of the recruitment process include: job analysis and developing a person
specification; the sourcing of candidates by networking, advertising, or other search methods;
matching candidates to job requirements and screening individuals using testing (skills or
personality assessment); assessment of candidates motivations and their fit with
organizational requirements by interviewing and other assessment techniques. The
recruitment process also includes the making and finalizing of job offers and the induction
and on boarding of new employees.

14
Depending on the size and culture of the organization recruitment may be undertaken in-
house by managers, human resource generalists and / or recruitment specialists. Alternatively
parts of all of the process might be undertaken by either public sector employment agencies,
or commercial recruitment agencies, or specialist search consultancies.

(Source: Human resource manual of UBL)

4.1.1 There are two types of recruitment

Internal recruitment
External recruitment

Internal recruitment

1. Considerable savings can be made. Individuals with inside knowledge of how a


business operates will need shorter periods of training and time for fitting in.
2. The organization is unlikely to be greatly disrupted by someone who is used to
working with others in the organization.
3. Internal promotion acts as an incentive to all staff to work harder within the
organization.
4. From the firms point of view, the strengths and weaknesses of an insider will have
been assessed. There is always a risk attached to employing an outsider who may only
be a success on paper.

External recruitment

External recruitment makes it possible to draw upon a wider range of talent, and provides the
opportunity to bring new experience and ideas in to the business. Disadvantages are that it is
more costly and the company may end up with someone who proves to be less effective in
practice than they did on paper and in the interview situation.

15
4.1.2 Sources of Recruitment:

Sources of internal recruitment


Companys own website.
Placement consultants.
Employee reference
From internship student

Sources of external recruitment


Advertisement in the newspapers.
Campus Recruitment.
Advertisement in the online.

4.2 Discussion about selection:

Employee Selection is the process of putting right men on right job. It is a procedure of
matching organizational requirements with the skills and qualifications of people. Effective
selection can be done only when there is effective matching. By selecting best candidate for
the required job, the organization will get quality performance of employees. Moreover,
organization will face less of absenteeism and employee turnover problems. By selecting
right candidate for the required job, organization will also save time and money. Proper
screening of candidates takes place during selection procedure. All the potential candidates
who apply for the given job are tested.

But selection must be differentiated from recruitment, though these are two phases of
employment process. Recruitment is considered to be a positive process as it motivates more
of candidates to apply for the job. It creates a pool of applicants. It is just sourcing of data.
While selection is a negative process as the inappropriate candidates are rejected here.
Recruitment precedes selection in staffing process. Selection involves choosing the best
candidate with best abilities, skills and knowledge for the required job.

16
Selection in staffing is the part of the recruiting process that deals with choosing an employee
to hire from among a narrowed-down list of outstanding candidates. Selection can actually
occur several times throughout the recruiting process. Managers select which candidates to
contact based on their resumes, which candidates to bring in for an interview and finally
which applicants to hire for open positions. Understanding the different levels of selection
and what to look for at each level can help you to select the ideal job candidates for long-term
success.

After interviews are conducted, hiring managers and human resources personnel meet and
select a candidate to offer the job to. The team carefully considers the candidates
qualifications, assessments and interviews to determine whom to offer the job. If hiring
managers are not satisfied with any of the candidates, the recruiting process may start again.
In most cases, the hiring team has the ability to select a candidate and a job offer is made. If
the candidate declines the job offer, the recruiting process may start again.

properly. No distractions should be there in room. There should be an honest communication

influence free and fair judgmental decision to recruit any new employees.
