MetadataShow full item record
Ericsson is one of today's leading communication giant suppliers in the whole world and is the only company with solutions for all major mobile communication standards. Ericsson has been present in Bangladesh since 1997, supporting its customers through a local branch office, Ericsson AB – Branch Office Dhaka. In early 2006, it incorporated under the Bangladesh laws as LM Ericsson Bangladesh Limited (EBL), to establish a full-fledged company. The operational base in Dhaka was setup only when the mobile phone market started to take shape with the awarding of GSM licenses in 1996 though they were already here selling equipments to BTTB from way back in 1970's. Today, Ericsson Bangladesh is a partner to majority of the operators in the country .As a multinational telecom service provider Ericsson has some core values which is strictly maintained here as well at Ericsson Bangladesh. I had done various tasks throughout my intern period. As Finance & Admin department are closely related, I was assigned to work with Admin team. This department is different from other organization's admin department in many ways. Its more like a combination of two departments. Everybody here cooperates each other & backs each other up whenever someone is in disarray. On the very beginning of my work, I have known the entire EBL administration & Security Process. I had to go with all the agreements in detail to see first whether the agreements were into valid or invalid. So first of all going through these valid or invalid agreements I found many things are not even agreement base but were on approved base. Many prices were only approved which should be in agreement form. So I found out the entire approved price list to make them into agreements. This was my major findings to see that things were not on agreement based which can never help to reduce cost. Being a finance internee, my task was also to see how to reduce cost of the company. So fixing price on approved way for a long time can never reduce cost. It is to remember price of most of the contract in every year is being reduced which help to save the cost of the company. Second, I found some agreements were not valid then I listed them on excel file to made them valid. By seeing the agreement date and present date I could found out the valid and invalid agreements. Third I need to find out their payment system which were made according to contract. Working with admin department I came to know about the recruitment & selection process of Ericsson. It is so well structured & maintained that the person who deserves the most will only be recruited for Ericsson. The standard that is maintained worldwide is also followed here at Ericsson Bangladesh. During my internship period I had the opportunity to sit with some people who are responsible to handle the whole recruitment process. From publishing an advertisement to contract confirmation- I had the opportunity to witness every single steps in recruitment . This how I got know what a multinational company looks for & what factors someone has to have to please them. That is why I have set my topic on the recruitment & selection process of the company. The whole procedure is described on the later half on my thesis report. So at last it seems I learned so many things of admin department which will help in future if I get chance to work on any organization. Now I know how a admin team runs, what responsibilities of an organization admin team carries, how to maintain all the agreements of the vendors, how you can save cost easily and so many things including how to compile all the critical information of a company in an excel sheet. I learned about time management, working as a team, professional behavior, prioritized assignments and so on to describe .I have to admit that Admin team does lots of activities and works like any other team. I will always try to reflect in my career the inexhaustible sincerity & attention I have seen in my colleagues during my Ericsson days.
