Employment Planning Every organization has employment planning. BAT has also its employment planning. They usually forecast their personnel needs based on their mission, strategic goals & objectives & technological and other changes resulting in increased productivity. Although there are several methods to predict personnel needs, but they use managerial judgment because it gives the more real world scenario for personnel needs. They think that the other methods cannot give the accurate situation of the personnel needs. These are basically graphical methods, which cannot measure the actual personnel needs. But managerial judgment method depends upon the change in productivity, market conditions etc.

Why British American Tobacco might be the best employer for a graduate? BAT is The Company where you can achieve whatever you are up to, organization ready to offer You fantastic opportunity for stretch, intense learning and real business exposure. We value a lot Young talent who brings us energy, knowledge, challenges us and has another 'fresh' view! The Management Trainee development program me in BAT has a long history hence it is very well Established and valued by all levels. We do provide what is required to support graduates for the Career success: structured development programmer, coaching, mentoring and responsibility!!!

Recruitment Policy British American Tobacco Bangladesh has been in e-resourcing since 2002. They focus on ebased advertisement for more visibility and transparency beside the conventional print media. All recruitment related notices are posted on the www.bdjobs.com website. Candidates are required to fill up the blank resume format provided in the website. A well-structured and systematic selection procedure is followed to get the most suitable candidate. Following the selection procedure, pre-employment medical examination and reference checks are done. They entertain application from recognized universities from home and abroad. Applicant must be a citizen of Bangladesh. They encourage students with good academic track record to apply. 10

They are not prejudiced against race, sex, religion, age etc.

Positions will be offered to the candidate on the basis of his/her ability and the requirement of the company.

Recruitment process: The recruitment and selection is the major function of the human resource department and recruitment process is the first step towards creating the competitive strength and the strategic advantage for the organizations. Recruitment process involves a systematic procedure from sourcing the candidates to arranging and conducting the interviews and requires many resources and time. Recruitment process of BAT is as follows:

11

1. Identify vacancy 2. Prepare job description and person specification 3. Advertising the vacancy 4. Managing the response 5. Short-listing 6. Arrange interviews 7. Conducting interview and decision making Recruitment Sources: Every organization has the option of choosing the candidates for its recruitment processes from two kinds of sources: internal and external sources. The sources within the organization itself (like transfer of employees from one department to other, promotions) to fill a position are known as the internal sources of recruitment. Recruitment candidates from all the other sources (like outsourcing agencies etc.) are known as the external sources of recruitment.

12

Internal Source: Current employees are often the best source of candidate. Filling open positions with inside candidates has many benefits. In this employer know candidates strengths and weakness very well. Inside candidates may require less orientation and training than outsiders.

Transfer The employees of BAT are transferred from one department to another according to their efficiency and experience. Promotion and demotion Promotion and demotion is an effective way to fill up the empty position. Sometimes an employee gets more opportunities and responsibilities than they actually deserve. And sometimes an employee gets less opportunity and responsibilities then they actually deserve. To solve those discriminations employer often practice this. The employees also motivated from this. Promotion is one types of reward and demotion is one types of punishment. But this may creates dissatisfaction in the mind of those employees who lose their position. BAT always follow this promotion and demotion rule.

Upgrading BAT upgrades their present employees according to their performance. Retired and retrenched employees Rehiring the retired employees is another effective source of employee recruitment. Experience is the most important element in most of the jobs. BAT doesnt want to loose their experienced and loyal employees. Sometimes the retired employees work as part-timer or sometimes they work as adviser.

The dependents and relatives of Deceased employees and Disabled employees are also done by many companies so that the members of the family do not become dependent on the mercy of others.

13

External Source It is very difficult to always get the right candidates for the job. BAT also uses some external source for employee recruitment. Most of the times they prefer external sources for recruiting. Advertisement This is the most effective method of employee recruitment. British American Tobacco Bangladesh has been in e-resourcing since 2002. They focus on e-based advertisement for more visibility and transparency beside the conventional print media. All recruitment related notices are posted on the www.bdjobs.com website. Candidates are required to fill up the blank resume format provided in the website. So they mainly use the website as a media. Educational Institution Most of the times BAT sends an employers representative in renowned educational institutions to prescreen applicants and create an applicant pool from the graduating class. These types of activities always motivate the young innovative candidates. Sometimes they are asking for internship. By this they get the fresh hard working employees for their organization.

Employment agencies

Employee agencies works as a third party. They provide perfect employee for the organization and a good job for the candidates. Sometimes it may very difficult to an individual to understand which job he/she can perform most effectively. But the agencies are expert to identify the best jobs. BAT normally uses this source very often. Because they know their HR department is very expert to find and trained employee. Several agencies are:

Employment exchanges Labor contractors

14

Employee Referrals

Many organizations have structured system where the current employees of the organization can refer their friends and relatives for some position in their organization. Also, the office bearers of trade unions are often aware of the suitability of candidates. Management of BAT can inquire these leaders for suitable jobs. In some organizations these are formal agreements to give priority in recruitment to the candidates recommended by the trade union. Recruitment at factory gate BAT does not recruit any employee from factory Gate

Internal vs. External Recruiting Internal recruiting is the search for in-house employees who have the abilities and the attitudes to fulfill the requirements needed and to help the organization achieve its objectives. Although internal recruiting is often neglected, and the Internet hardly offers any useful discussions for this recruiting strategy, it is crucial not to overlook this strategy. The discussion of internal recruiting provides the advantages and disadvantages of this recruiting technique in comparison to the external method.

Selection Process. If the application is successful, they will be invited to a preliminary interview which will be taken by a member from the function to which they have applied and a member of the Human Resource team. As a final candidate, they will be invited to a specifically designed British American Tobacco assessment centre. This will provide them opportunity to demonstrate their skills and suitability through their performance in a number of participative and individual exercises. They will also have the opportunity to meet managers and to gain

15

firsthand experience of what it is like to work for British American Tobacco Bangladesh. Regardless of the outcome, participants find it a unique opportunity to demonstrate their strengths. If they get through the Assessment Centre, they will be recommended to the respective Heads of Functions for a final Interview. They are committed to keep them informed of their progress through every step of the selection process.

Selection Process Techniques Several techniques are used in selection process like tests, background investigation and physical exams to identify viable as well as capable candidates.

Background information and several selection methods are used to verify factual information which provided by applicants and to uncover damaging information.

Decide who to make an offer to, by having the supervisor and perhaps others on the team interview the candidates.

16

Socialization Process In BAT the Human Resource Manager make decisions about how they want to socialize their new employees. Employees begin with a relatively formal socialization to learn the pivotal standards of BAT. Then they begin the formal socialization process on the job, where they learn the norms of their work group. BATBs socialization can be conceptualized as a process made up of three stages: 1. Pre-arrival stage: This stage explicitly recognizes that each individual arrives with a set of organizational values, attitude, and expectations. 2. Encounter stage: Here the individuals confront the possible the dichotomy between their expectations and reality 3. Metamorphosis stage: Finally, the new member must work out any problems discovered during the encounter stage.

Training and Development We recognize that getting the right start is crucial to building a successful career. That's why we developed the Management Trainee Programme. During the Programme we take a constant interest in your progress, give regular feedback, support and resources you need, as well as review your performance to ensure you are on the right track.

Employee Training Method On-the-job Training: It means having a person learn a job by actually doing it. Advantages: Relatively inexpensive Trainees learn while producing No need off-site facilities Drawbacks: Low productivity while the employees develop their skills The errors made by the trainees while they learn.

Apprenticeship Training: It traditionally involves having the learner study under the tutelage of a master craftsperson. Informal Learning: This learning process is not determined or designed by the organization. But the organization may ensure it by creating a learning environment in the organization. Job Instruction Training: Listing each jobs basic task, along with key points, in order to provide step-by-step training for employees. Lectures: The most simple and quick way to provide knowledge to large groups of trainees. Simulated Training: It places the trainee in an artificial environment that closely mirrors actual working conditions. Development- Any attempt to improve current or future management performance by imparting knowledge, changing attitudes, or increasing skills. Any effort toward developing employees must begin by looking at the organizations objectives. The objectives tell us where were going and provide a framework from which our managerial needs can be determined

Chapter4: Conclusion and Recommendation

Recommendation British American Tobacco Company practices a good human resource management. But analyzing their all human resource practices we think that they should develop their recruitment process more to cope with modern business.

Conclusion British American Tobacco is one of the reputed multinational companies in Bangladesh. They have continued their business with good reputation. As a leading company in tobacco industry they always try to maintain the highest quality of their products. Their human resource department is strong & treats their employees as an asset. BAT has already earned reputation as a very potential Multinational Company of the country. This has been possible due to skilled manpower, which has been developed by taking proper recruitment and selection strategies and giving sufficient training and development opportunities and also retaining their employee through providing adequate compensation and benefit .We write in no uncertain term that BAT is functioning very well and we hope that it will continue its operations and will become the trendsetter of the Human Resource Management practices of Bangladesh
