MetadataShow full item record
The garment industry of Bangladesh has been the key revenue generating sector for the last couple of years. At present, the country generates about $9.35 billion worth of products each year by exporting garments product. The industry provides employment to about 3 million workers of whom 80% are women. Zeal Knitwear Limited is one of the emerging garments in our country. I have conducted my internship in this organization in the Human Resources Department. Currently it consists of 750 employees and generated revenue of 3 million dollars per year. The company was established in 2005 and its production side is located in Gazipur. During my whole internship tenure I have worked in several sectors of Human Resources Department of the Garment’s Production and Manufacturing Sectors. At the same time I had to keep a good link with the company’s HQ at Nawabpur. The Human Resource Department of the Garment is the most crucial department which has to work with the daily manpower and the resources. As an intern I didn’t get the chance to work in every sector very deeply but I had my contribution on the marketing department. A big promoter of the industry till now has been the cheap labor in our country. However, recent political developments are creating a barrier to this sector. Moreover, workers are now well-aware of the high profits enjoyed by the companies, and as a result demanding higher salaries. This is the same problem that is circling Zeal Ltd. The company’s biggest drawback is the high labor turnover which is directly arising for this sole reason. As a result, the company’s HR department has taken steps to tackle this problem. The solution that I helped to come up with, is creating a better working environment and preventing and monitoring the commission received by the line managers from the labors, so that no injustice occurs to them.
