Md. Mamotaj Ali

Abstract


Human resource management practices in ready-made garments sector has been a widely research area for years. But unfortunately, there have been no sufficient numbers of studies conducted on this area in the context of Bangladesh although ready-made garments sector is part of a rich industry in Bangladesh. Training is a major function of HRM. This study was undertaken to identify and to clarify ins and outs of employee’s perceptions about training facilities in the ready-made garments sector of Bangladesh. The analysis of the data collected from 5 ready-made garments companies in Bangladesh shows that there has no sufficient training opportunities. A survey has been conducted among 50 employees of different ready-made garments companies within Dhaka city by using a structured questionnaire and analyzed them objectively. Finally the study concludes that the concerned authorities should be aware about training of employees in order to improve the performance of employees as well as performance of the organization.
