This ratio helps them to understand what will be the need of manpower in different department and to avoid any unpleasant situation for the company. ) Scatter plot: This tool is used by Grameenphone to understand the relationship between two variables. Like if sales increases how many sales will be needed that can be understood fro ratio analysis but it has impact on customer division also because more customers will have more queries and more problem. In order to solve that they use scatter plot to find out whether they have any relation between two variables or not because if there any relation exist that will have an impact on their HR planning. Sources of recruitment:

The reason behind this is the demand for their brand product. And the demand varies upon the population density, location of that place and their budget to provide service in those areas. Since they have to make plan depending on these factors, they prefer scatter plot to determine the number of employees for recruiting and selecting. Sources of recruitment: AKTEL recruits from both internal and external source. Forecasting the supply of internal candidates: In order to forecast the supply of internal candidates Aktel uses some method. They are as follows-

Qualification Inventories: Aktel maintains record in order to find out what are the educational background and area of interest of the employees.

They show here possible replacement, present performance and promotion potential. Human resource Information system: Aktel also like other companies accept online applicants and maintain information of candidates through a online process in a computerized way which is also known as Human resource Information system HRIS. Forecasting the supply of outside candidate: AKTEL consider the general market condition, local market condition and occupational market condition when they recruit because it helps them to find whether they have suitable supply of candidate or not.

Finding Internal Candidates: Before hiring the outside candidate an organization should forecast the inside candidate. AKTEL keeps a record of every employee’s performance evaluation By using below process they recruit most of their internal candidate- : Whenever there is a position in the company they put a notice on their intranet in order to give opportunity to eligible employees to apply. This jobs are only available within the organization. Outside sources of candidates: External Source is one of the major sources of recruiting employee for any organization.

An organization may have different types of external sources. AKTEL uses different types of sources to find the candidate for their organization. Under this source, AKTEL follows different kinds of sources that are described below: (1) Advertising: AKTEL uses different types of advertising to recruit employees. They generally go for newspaper advertising and online advertising. Online advertisement are presented by their own website and other websites like www. bdjobs. com. (2) Agencies: AKTEL does not go for Agency recruiting.

Analysis between GP and Aktel : GP and AKTEL both is telecommunications service provider in Bangladesh.

They have similarities and differences in personnel forecasting and recruiting process. Here through different tables illustrates the difference and similarities: |Personnel Forecasting: |GP |Aktel | |Trend analysis |Does |Does | |Ratio analysis |Does |Does | |Scatter plot |Does |Does | Fig: 3. 1 Forecasting the supply of internal candidates: |GP |Aktel | |Qualification Inventories |Does |Does | |Position replacement card: |no |Does | |personnel replacement chart |no |no | |HRIS |Does |Does | Fig: 3. 2 Finding Internal Candidates: |GP |Aktel | |Job Posting |Does |Does | |Rehiring former employees |no |no | |Succession planning |Does |no | Fig: 3. 3 |Outside sources of candidates: |GP |Aktel | |Advertising |no |Does | |Private Employment Agency |Does |Does | |Employee referrals |no |no | Recruiting via the Internet |Does | | |Executive recruiters |Does |Does | |College recruiting |Does |Does | | | Fig: 3. 4 • It’s been found that both the companies use the three personnel forecasting tools- trend analyses, ratio analysis and scatter plotting. AKTEL most of the time prefers to use scatter plotting, as it is more convenient for them to determine the number of employees for recruiting and selecting.

Gp’s use of these tools depends more on different factors to be considered rather then giving preference to one tool. But none of the companies is found to use software packages to determine future staff needs. In order to forecast the supply of internal candidates AKTEL uses all the four methods – • Qualification Inventories, Position replacement card, position replacement card, Human resource Information system. Where as GP keep records using Qualification Inventories methods and Human resource Information system. • AKTEL consider the general market and occupational market condition in Forecasting the supply of outside candidate on the other hand GP more emphasizes on the potential candidate market, for e. g.

For the customer manager position they target the best Universities to create a pool of potential candidates for recruitment. • In case of finding candidates within the companies both put job posting on their intranet for the current employees. Besides job posting Succession Planning is also followed by GP for higher level of positions. Rehiring is not preferable by either companies. External Source is one of the major sources of recruiting employee for any organization. GP and AKTEL have different types of external sources to use to find desired candidates. • Aktel do use media, newspaper and online job site but GP don’t. Executive recruiting and College recruiting are done by both the organizations for top level management.

Sometimes help of agencies are required in the companies. 100% recruiting Via Internet is only done by GP through their career jobsite.

During the report we were able to relate our classroom lectures with real life business very well, which helped us to understand the concepts of HR in depth.

Here we have some recommendations for both the companies- 4. 2. 1 Grameenphone: # They can maintain a personnel replacement chart in order to recruit more efficient employees for a specific position quickly. # They can also use position replacement card to make their recruiting process more effective. They will get more benefit if they put their advertisements directly on print media that will lead them to pool more qualified candidates immediately. # GP does a lot of contractual employment and after the termination of contract they can rehire the formal employees for any other department. They can maintain a sheet where they will have the name of capable employees which can later on add values to their company. # GP is the one of leading company in Bangladesh and they have a huge bunch of qualified employees and they should go for employee referrals. Because that will save their time and as well as the existing employee already know the company very well so definitely they wont suggest anyone who will not fit the company. 4. 2. 2 Aktel: If they use personnel replacement chart in order to recruit more efficient employees for a specific position, they will get a quick result. # They should more focus on HRIS system to improve their HR system. # They should go for executive recruiters to find more qualified employees. 4. 3 References: 4. 3. 1 Books Dessler, Gary, (2005) Human Resource Management, Tenth edition, Prentice Hall India.
