MetadataShow full item record
This internship report is the last stage of my BBA program. This report is made based on my three months long internship program at Dhaka Bank Limited. The objective of this report is to analyze the work life balance for women employees at Dhaka Bank Limited. The reason for choosing this topic for my internship report is because banking sector is consider as one of the most busiest and stressful sector to work in and for employees it can be a very difficult task to balance out their work and family life. Also, this has been a burning topic for research recently as people are now more aware about mental health, healthy life etc. Unfortunately, not much research has been done in our country. There are more than, 40 privet banks in Bangladesh. More or less work pressure in all these banks is quite similar. Since I got the opportunity to do my internship at Dhaka Bank Limited, I take the advantage and start work on this particular topic. More than 60 respondents participated in the survey. One of the key finding of this report is that the number of female employees in banking sector is decreasing. The main reasons for this are excessive workload and long working hour. Female employees find it more challenging to balance out their life than male employees. According our society’s traditional mindset, women are expected to be more responsible for family affairs than men. To the contrary, it is not same for male employees as men are suppose to work and earn bread for family. Because of this double standard, created by the society, women tend to get pressure from both family and work which gradually affect their health. So, in a long run, they suffer from depression, anxiety, eyesight problem etc. Like any many other banking institutions DBL also do not have made any policies to help their employee to balance out their life and thinks that it is individual responsibility to take initiative to balance out their life. Therefore, women employees suffer from lack of support from society, lack of support from the family and from the organization as well. As a result, the number of female employee is decreasing in banks in generals and in DBL as well. Support from family, change in society’s opinion and change in organizational policies can help female employees to balance out their life in Dhaka Bank Limited and in privet banking sectors in general.
