Employee Satisfaction on Aarong’s compensation
BRAC the largest NGO of world was established in 1972. Then in 1976, BRAC the largest NGO of the world dedicated to lessen poverty and empowering the underprivileged people has started a small initiative to promote sericulture among the women of Manikganj. Later, Aarong was born in 1978 need of helping the disadvantaged, poor silk farmers of Manikganj. Their visionary goal to change the lives of deprived artisans and underprivileged rural women by enlivening and encouraging their arts and crafts. At the very beginning their target buyers were a few merchants of Dhaka. Soon enough, Aarong started to grow and spread throughout the whole country, from one single shop to the biggest retail chains of Bangladesh. Now, Aarong has a big family of 65,000 artisans with versatile artists including weavers, potters, brass workers, jewelers, jute workers, basket weavers, wood carvers, leather workers and more. Among these artisans, 85% of them are rural women which show positive indications towards empowering women. Today, it can be easily said that Aarong has become the biggest platform for the little independent groups and family-based initiative for selling their crafts in the national and international market. Aarong is stands as the interfacing bridge through which rural artisans and women can sell their home-made products and bring food to their table.

The nature of the core jobs performed by HR department of Aarong is as follows:
Recruitment and Selection
The main job of HR department is ensuring right people at the place at the right time doing the right job. In Aarong when staffs leave the organization, new positions are introduced or due to increase in responsibility, some departments need more people. At that time HR ensures inflow of qualified staffs within the organization. The HR department of Aarong is responsible for doing all the recruitment and selection related activities. After getting staff requisition from any department, HR department takes approval the director/Managing Director/Chair Person. After that all the all the recruitment and selection procedure are done by HR department.

Transfer means moving or shifting staffs from one place to another place for job purpose. All the transfer related activities are performed by HR department in Aarong. In Aarong two types of transfer are seen. One is voluntary transfer and another is professional transfer. Sometimes staffs move from one department to another department for personal or physiological problem. It is voluntary transfer. Besides, staffs moves from one location to another location and it is decided by the management from where to from and where to place. It is called professional transfer.
After getting the staff‟s request or department head‟s request for transfer, HR department is responsible for doing all the activities of transfer such as transfer approval from department head and director, prepare transfer order, issue transfer order and file, and so on.
Attendance of staffs is taken for counting salary. For taking attendance punching machine is used in Aarong. Every regular staff must have to come in the office before 8:45 am in the morning and punch the punching machine. The office hour ends up at 5:15 pm at the noon. Then at the time leaving the office, again the regular staffs have to punch the punching machine. This way attendance for each day is taken for regular staffs. For temporary staffs there is attendance register where each temporary staffs has to sign when they would enter into the office. HR department records all the attendance of each employee in the HRMS (Human Resource Management Software) for counting salary amount. Moreover, HR department also have some other responsibilities related to attendance such as punishment for being absent or being late in the office. For 3 days late, 1 day‟s salary would be cut and for 7 days late, warning letter would be sent to the respective staff. Besides, this there are some other rules related to punishment.
Counting attendance for determining salary amount & benefits and taking any action if needed is the responsibility of Aarong HR department.
In Aarong there are different types of leave facility for staffs. Those leave includes regular/earned leave, sick/accidental leave, maternity leave, paternity leave, higher study leave, extra ordinary leave, transfer leave and compulsory leave. Each sort of leave requires different rules. For example, in case of regular/earned leave, it is 20 days for administrative staffs, 24 days for outlet and field staffs, 42 days for service staffs in a year. In case of paternity leave, it is 7 days with pay leave for confirmed staffs and 7 days without pay leave for non-confirmed staffs.
The paternity leave must be taken within one month and it is applicable only for two children. This way each types of leave has different rules and it varies depending on staff‟s type. HR department maintains all the rules as they are authorized to perform all the leave related activities to avoid misuse of these leaves. The leave related activities in Aarong are providing leave form, taking approval from the staff‟s head of the department, input data in the HRMS (Human Resource Management system) and other activities.
For improving the performance of staffs performance appraisal is given. In this organization performance appraisal is given to all regular staffs who hold a PIN (Personal Identity Number). The staffs who has provided one year of continuous service and their provided service is satisfactory, are entitled to get performance appraisal. Once in a year, generally in December HR department do evaluation of the performance of each staffs and in January of next year performance appraisal is given to selected staffs. The recommendations for performance appraisal are change in designation, promotion, appointment (temporary to regular), confirmation, termination/dismissal, and special allowance. Before one month of the appraisal, HR department sends performance evaluation form and listing of staffs to each department for performance assessment. If needed, HR department do meeting with department‟s head. This process ends up with issuing performance appraisal letters to the selected staffs. HR department handles the whole procedure.
In Aarong the job of every confirmed staff is confirmed if she/he has provided one year of continuous service and the provided performance is satisfactory. If the performance of the staff is not satisfactory, the job will be terminated after completion of probation period of the staff. The duration of probation period of sales associates is six months and for corporate staffs it is one year. First HR department of Aarong sends listing of staffs and confirmation form to each department before one month of confirmation. Then HR department do follow up to ensure that the forms are filled within right time, check the form after submission whether those are filled up in the right way or not and rectify if necessary. Then HR department approved those forms by the Director/Managing Director/Chair Person. Then input those data into HRMS (Human Resource Management System), payroll and EDMS (Employee Database Management System).
Lastly, the Aarong HR department issues confirmation letter to the selected staffs.
Job separation means ending the job or termination of employment. In Aarong job termination can be voluntarily done by the staff or involuntarily done by the employer or organization‟s policy. Here four types of job separation: resignation, termination, dismissal and retirement.
Resignation means voluntarily termination of job by the employee him/herself. Termination and dismissal are by the employer due to dissatisfactory performance, conducting illegal activities (theft, sexual harassment etc.) or something that is beyond organization‟s policy, absent in the workplace for many days without taking leave and unable to complete the period of probation. Retirement is termination of job according to organization‟s policy. If an employee has provided 20 years of continuous service, she/he can take retirement by his/her own will.

Grievance management is one of the job responsibilities of HR department. Aarong puts a lot of emphasis on grievance management. The steps in the procedure of grievance management are submission of written complaint/incident report or accusation from the victim to the HR department, issuing show cause letter to the accused person or form an investigation committee, accepting show cause reply within three to seven days or preparing investigation report, making decision based on the organization‟s policy or according to the recommendation of the investigation committee. The decisions can be taking no action if there is no guilt, warning letter issue, transfer, suspension, penalty, termination, dismissal and demotion. After the decision making, HR department inform the decision to the respective person through a letter and file all the documents.

In this organization varieties of loan are given to the staffs such as staff loan, special loan, welfare fund loan, provident fund loan, higher education loan, car loan (only for BRAC staffs), home loan, motor cycle/bicycle loan and mobile loan. HR department handles all the procedures. According to the requirement of staffs, HR department provides loan forms and fill it up by the staffs, then check those forms with personal files, verify reasons for taking loan, submit necessary documents, check with accounts, take approval from the director etc. There is slide difference in the procedure based on type of loan.
HR department performs all the steps of the procedure according to the organization‟s policy and ensures the facility of providing loan to staffs. After completing the entire procedures HR department update their EDMS (Employee Database Management System) for recording purpose.
Sometimes the staffs of Aarong have to stay outside the country for attending training, attending seminars, participating in any international fair and so on. And sometimes they have to stay places within country for official purpose. For this reason they are entitled to get allowance.
Travel authorization can be two types. One is travel authorization international and another is travel authorization within country. HR department provides travel authorization form to fill it up to the staff, and then they take permission from the director or head of the department (in case of travel authorization within country). After that the HR department calculate how much can be spent, how much pocket money is reasonable, how the staff has to stay there etc. Then the sends this calculation to the accounts and accounts provides the allowance to the staff. For documentation HR department preserve all the papers into a file. So it is the responsibility of HR department to ensure travel allowance.
The HR department of Aarong ensures housing allowance and distance allowance for the staffs who works in the 13 foundation centers. The staffs of foundation have to stay various places in Bangladesh for job purpose. Sometimes in some sub-centers there are no housing facility and transportation facility. The staffs have to arrange housing and transportation by their own cost. In this situation, they are entitled to get housing and distance allowances. HR department ensures that the staffs get all the allowances.
Temporary Staff Salary
In Aarong temporary staffs are those who have no PIN (Personal Identity Number). There are some casual workers. When their service is needed, they are being called to do their service. In this organization there are electricians, helpers and some other types of workers who are considered as temporary worker. For counting the salary of temporary workers HR department collect information from respective department. Then they check attendance of the temporary workers from the attendance register and prepare letter which is recommended by HR department. After that they take approval from the director and send it to the accounts for salary payment. Lastly they file all the documents.
In this organization there are some staffs who are in officer level such as General Manager, Deputy General Managers, Officers etc. They handle customers and need to communicate continuously. According to the organization‟s policy, they must have visiting card. HR department is responsible for providing visiting cards. When the HR department gets requisition for visiting card from the person with the respective department head‟s approval, they take approval of the head of HR. Then they place order for visiting cards. After receiving those visiting cards, HR department distributes those cards to the staff who required those visiting cards.

Moreover if some staff is hospitalized for accident, he verifies that by visiting the staff in the hospital. HR department set up appointment with the doctor, collect consultation fees, prepare records, deposit fees to accounts and they file those documents.
Compensation is a systematic approach to provide extrinsic and intrinsic benefits, monetary and non monetary benefits to the employees. It is also considered as measurement how employees are being treated in an organization. Each and every organization has their own compensation planning where they specify what facilities are going to provide their employees, how it should be provided and based on what category. Having the theoretical knowledge of compensation I feel interest to know about the real scenario of compensation practices and how it is being implemented in an organization of our country. I have selected Aarong to know about their compensation system and employee satisfaction. The human resources policy and procedure manual of BRAC provides the policies and procedures for managing and developing staffs. It also provides the guideline Aarong will use to administer these policies with the correct procedure to follow. These policies and procedures are applied to the employees of Aarong as well as to the employees of all subsidiaries of BRAC.
Compensation system results allocation, conversion, and transfer of a portion of the income of an organization to its employees. It can be two types‟ monetary and in-kind claims. Monetary claims are wages and salaries paid to an employee in the form of money or a form that is quickly & easily transferable to money. On the other hand in-kind claims are claims on goods and services are made available and paid for either totally or in some percentage. Compensation dimensions are as follows
Non compensation Dimensions
These rewards are much more complex. These are all situation related and for the physical and psychological well being of each employee. Any activity that has an impact on the intellectual, emotional and physical well being is included here. Generally it is given to improve work performance. Non compensation dimensions are as follows
The research on “Employee satisfaction on Aarong‟s Compensation” will be explanatory in terms of research type. Explanatory research is one type of research design, which has as its primary objective the provision of insights into and comprehension of the problem situation confronting the researcher. Explanatory research is used in case of problem must define more precisely, identify relevant courses of action, or gain additional insights before an approach can be developed. When an issue is encountered that is already known and have a description of it, there might arise need to begin to wonder why things are the way they are. The desire to know the reason to explain is the purpose of explanatory research. This research process is flexible and unstructured. By doing explanatory research it will be helpful to study about employee satisfaction on Aarong‟s compensation.

Alternative Hypothesis H1: “Employees of Aarong are not satisfied with their compensation”

At present Aarong provides the local and international public opportunity of owning a Bangladeshi handcrafted product. It is playing the role of representative of Bangladeshi culture to the outside world. As a result of the valuable contribution of artisans and handicraft producers and the administrative staffs, Aarong has come so far. The qualified human resources of Aarong keep the business running and foster the growth of business. The HR department of Aarong ensures attract, attain and retain of talent staffs within the organization and helps in placing right people, at the right place, at the right time doing the right job. Talent and qualified staffs are loyal to the Aarong for it‟s best compensation package. Staffs of this organization are satisfied with their overall compensation benefits. However competitors can attract talents of Aarong through offering more attractive salaries and other benefits. For this reason Aarong should be more concern about it and should increase salary of staffs. It can introduce performance bonus, profit sharing, and lunch facility to the staffs. However the recruitment and selection of staffs is the main responsibility of HR department. Except this they have some other responsibilities such as transfer of staffs, maintaining attendance of staffs, leave management, performance appraisal related activities, confirmation of staffs, job separation, grievance management etc. so HR of Aarong can take initiatives as competitors cannot attract talent staffs of Aarong. As Aarong is growing and spreading its outlets throughout the whole country, this organization will require lots of qualified human resources. Human Resource department of Aarong will ensure hiring pool of qualified, talented human recourses for Aarong.
Through attract, attain, and retaining talent staffs by offering excellent compensation package to the talents HR department will encourage Aarong to move forward.
