Next the particular objectives of the project were set. Based on these objectives, the necessary data for completion of the project were identified. Next, those internal sources were identified who would be able to provide the necessary information.

After this, the data collection process began. Both primary and secondary sources were used. The primary sources of information were the concerned officials of EXIM BANK. Data were collected from them through interview. The sources of secondary information were various publications, board memos, Annual Report and other reports on EXIM BANK. After data collection was complete, the data was analyzed to find out their implications. Based on those findings, the final report was completed.


The major limitation of this report is that no previous study is done beforehand on EXIM BANK’s Human Resources Department. So, secondary study material was scarce. The study is heavily relied on observational method, which has its own disadvantages, and not a very effective method. The Human Resources division was not so structured and has anomalies in practices among the branches. Standard method was not yet set in all the major segments in HRD of EXIM BANK.

 Organizational Part


The emergence of Exim Bank Limited in the private sector is an important event in the banking industry of Bangladesh. Exim Bank Limited started its business as a public limited company on August 08, 1992 with the primary objectives to carry on all kinds of banking business in and outside of Bangladesh and also with a view to safeguard the interest of the depositors of erstwhile BCCI [Bank of Credit and Commerce International (Overseas)] under the Reconstruction Scheme, 1992, framed by Bangladesh Bank.

In 19991, when BCCI had collapsed internationally, the operation of this bank had been closed in Bangladesh. After a long discussion with the BCCI employees and taking into consideration the depositors’ interest, Bangladesh Bank then gave the permission to form a bank named Exim Bank Limited which would take over all the assets, cash and liabilities of erstwhile BCCI in Bangladesh, with effect from August 16, 1992. So, it can be said the EXIM BANK is a successor of BCCI.

EXIM BANK started its business as a scheduled bank with only four branches, which included Pincipal Branch, Dhaka; Motijheel Branch, Dhaka; Agrabad Branch, Chittagong and Khulna Branch. EXIM BANK started its business with motto to grow as a leader in the banking arena of Bangladesh through better counseling and efficient service to clients. EXIM BANK resumed its operational activities initially with an authorized capital of Tk. 1000 million, divided into 10 million shares of Tk. 100 each and paid up capital of Tk. 310 million. The initial shareholders were the NCBs, various govt. agencies, and some of the depositors who had agreed to accept shares in the new bank in lieu of their deposits. The first Board of Directors of EXIM BANK constituted under govt. supervision, consisted of 7 directors from various business and professions. Exim Bank Limited was under government control until the end of 2000 and therefore, there were lots of deficiencies in the Bank’s management. In 2001, the board of directors brought in new professional management from various foreign banks who have been trying to modernize the bank ever since.

The bank has been restructured into five main businesses which is responsible for earning the revenues of the bank. These are:

      Corporate Banking

      Consumer Banking

      SME Banking



All other departments of the bank act as support for these five units and help them in every possible way. Under this arrangement, the responsibilities and functions of those branches have been reduced dramatically. Many of the activities like credit evaluation and approval, monitoring of loans, trade services activities etc. are now centralized in the Head Office. The branches of the bank are now termed as the “Sales & ServiceCenters” which are solely concentrated on delivering services to the corporate and consumer clients and maintain relationship with them.

Therefore EPS dropped to BDT 61.98 in 2006 against BDT 66.00.

Corporate Banking remains the major bread earner with largest volume of loan portfolio and fees income. Adding 3 more branches at strategic locations, Consumer Banking supplied the major part of funding assets of corporate and SME, one of the potential business segments. EXIM BANK Treasury has passed a superb year 2006 by achieving an extraordinary growth of FX income by 130% to the tune of BDT 434 million by exploiting market volatility.

Current Banking Scenario of BD and EXIM BANK’s Position in the Market

From the beginning of the year 2004, the entire banking industry in Bangladesh started facing stiff competition to procure business, under the changed circumstances of the policy of BB to lower the rates of interest in lending and to go for syndication against large loan portfolios with the objective to ensure better operation and control of all functions of the bank.

Despite such situation the year was a remarkable on for EXIM BANK when the bank finally completed the introduction of a state-of-the art IT technology platform of Flex Cube, a world class banking software. All of bank’s 25 braches were connected to this IT platform giving an enviable opportunity to all the EXIM BANK customers to obtain the most coveted services that no other bank could offer them yet.

Customers of new century are self-motivated, vigilant and informed about the market conditions, further more development of information technology and telecommunication systems created an environment whereby customers demand convenience, reasonable priced better quality financial products and personalized services. Customer demand together with technological advancement created new challenges and opportunities in the banking sector in Bangladesh. Adapting realistic and timely business policies, investments in IT are now prejudicing to stay at the edge of this assertive and competitive banking business of the country. Invention of new financial products and services and introduction of new delivery methods are the key concern of staying close to customers.

To cope with the status quo, Exim Bank Limited welcomed these developments and restructured the bank to meet the challenges in future. The branches of the bank are now termed as the “Sales & ServicesCenter” which are solely concentrated providing service to the corporate and consumer clients and maintain relationship with them.

Performance Appraisal System

Performance Appraisal System (PAS) is the tool by which we measure the performance of an individual and identify the gaps and plan future developments in order to enable a better fit between the jobs & the incumbent.

It is an HR process for driving business results.  It is defining in advance what we must do as an individual to win in the marketplace and later on assessing the performance based on the extent to which we achieve results.

Performance Appraisal System is quite structured that it can measure or assess both goals (what) and the management competencies (how).

Goals/ Key Result Areas (KRA) are the specific major objectives to be set at the beginning of the year through consultation with the reporting manager. These need to be aligned to the objectives of the function and consequently to overall objectives of the Bank.

A management competency is a skill, ability or trait that predicts success to perform a job.

The Performance Appraisal needs to be implemented as per the PAS format which will be circulated by HR at the beginning of the year. The definition of rating in Performance appraisal is given below for reference:

1= The individual who has exceeded 125% and above of his target in all of his key result

areas is eligible for rating 1.

2 =  The individuals who has exceeded 105% – 110%of his target in all of his key result areas is eligible for rating 2.

3 =  The individual who has achieved 90%-100%  of his target in all of his key result areas is eligible for rating 3. The employee achieved the essential requirement of day to day job.

4 = The individual failed to perform within the set objective.

5 = The individual who has failed to demonstrate his performance in all of his key result areas to be rated  5 and he/s  will be treated as non performer.

Those who are rated 1 to 3 are eligible for incentive bonus:

If any appraisee feels that his/her performance evaluation by the line manager is influenced by discrimination or unfair and biased judgment the appraisee may appeal to Head of HR with his/her grievance in writing. In such cases the HOHR will be the first point contact. If the issue remain unresolved than it will referred to the MD for his review and decision and in that case the decision of MD will be final.

Compensation and Benefits


Salaries are confidential between the employees concerned and the Management. Employees joining against a post will be receiving the salary as per the grade they join in. The employees who are in probation will be eligible to join the PF only after their confirmation. Management Trainee alone will receive a monthly consolidated salary during the probation period.

Salaries increase which is linked with the performance of the individual employee per calendar year takes effect from 1st March of every year.

The annual salary revision is decided by the Managing Director with approval of the Board of Directors based on:

  • Individual Performance
  • Market Movement
  • The Bank’s affordability
  • Individual’s relative position in a particular salary range
  • COLA (Cost of living adjustment)

Any request for information relating to salary should be directed to the Human Resources Department.

 Promotional Benefits

In the event of Promotion/Up-gradation to a higher Job Grade, the employee will receive an increase of 10% of his/her previous basic salary and all other allowances applicable in the higher grade. However, the promotee will receive the minimum range of the level where he/she has been promoted.

In case the revised basic salary still remains below the starting scale of the new Job Grade, the employee is then given the differential needed to place him/her at the starting basic salary of the new Job Grade.


Salary increases are awarded once a year on the basis of Increment Policy to all employees who have performed satisfactorily in the given year for a minimum period of 180 days after confirmation of service. One may not receive any increment on a given year as a penalty on account of any offence/disciplinary measure.

The portion of COLA in each year increment will be decided by Management Committee of the bank.

 Duties and Activities I performed with Human Resources Department

Allocating and arranging Personal Files

After having internship placement in Human Resources Division my first duty was to allocate and shape all personal file of 650 permanent employees and 148 contractual employees that any personal file can submit when required. Provided that before, all those Personal Files was scattered and halfhearted and it was so difficult to find any asked Personal File (PF) immediately. For this, I divided all the Personal File of the employees according to their existing branches and departments in Head Office. Personal File is the only most reliable source of any information about any employee of the bank required for various reasons as inquires, justifications, trend of service excellence, background, End of Service Benefits calculation etc.

 Updating Information in Personal File

When I joined Human Resources Department, there was thousands of office letters and Performance Appraisal Form of each employee was not updated to the personal file. My responsibility was to direct support staff to find the Personal File quickly and add the letters in the file. In case of Performance Appraisal Form, first I had directed the support staff  to make a photocopy of each form  for sending the photocopy to the employee him/her self and keep original copy in the personal file.

Calling the candidates for Written Test or Interview over Phone

Over the internship period I used to call the candidates over phone for scheduled written test or interview session. For this I used to collect the Resume of the candidates; finding her/his contact number in the resume and start calling. After receiving the call other end I used to verify the person I called for, introduced myself and let him/her know about the schedule and asked for a confirmation that he/she is interested to come in the scheduled time.  Invisilator

Invigilation in the written test examination taken by HRD

In my internship period several times I obtained the duty of invigilation in the written exam. Being invigilator I had the full authority to arrange the sit map, check the duration, deduct marks, and even take the exam sheet in case of any misconduct done by any candidate.

Joining of new Employee   

During the internship session, I used to go for joining of new employee. For that, I used to first greet him/her, take all the required documents, certificated, medical tests, clean release order from previous employer etc. and open a new personal file with all documents. Then I used to prepare a posting order based for the new joiner based on approval sheet.

 Upload personal information into the HRIS

I had the responsibility to input all the personal information into the Human Resource Information Database system called EZHR (a payroll & database software) according to the employee ID. The information I had to input was, Personal Information, Address and Contact, Educational Records, Training and Workshops Records, Experience information, photograph etc. Further based on this given ID and information,  the salary particulars are used to input in the software which is enable with the FlexCube-for transferring those amount in the employees bank account as monthly salary.

Assist Calculating Monthly salary of new joiner in EXIM BANK

This was the most responsible duty I have done in Human Resources Department in my tenure of internship session. I used to calculate the newly joined employees first month’s salary (arrear) depending on his/her availed days during the month. For calculating those salaries I developed a spreadsheet calculator using MS Excel once done by the help of calculator. Provided that the existing payroll management software has the limitation of calculating arrear salaries of newly joined employees automatically. The spreadsheet calculator is shown below:

 Provided that, LFA (Leave Fare Assistance) is given once in a year only after availing leave of minimum six days. So, in monthly salary calculation it has no effect. After calculation I used to input those particular amounts in the payroll software (EZHR) manually for further action taken by the Manager-Compensation & Benefits.

 Suggestions and Recommendations

Identical Human Resource Policy: There should be a unique HR Policy in the organization immediately, though the reconstruction of HR Policy is under progress supervised by the existing Manager and the Head of HR.

Human Resource Development: There should be all kinds of development activities as individual, career and organizational by the Human Resources Department for enhancing the employees growth as well as achieve organizational hierarchy.

For better services, HRD must establish a proper linkage within the other functional departments.

The employee wants recognition and reward for their self actualization.  There are few reward and recognition options is available in EXIM BANK should review for deals with employee retention/ turnover.

The workforce should be structured and the standard functional designation should be in act.
