aximum workers are Iound satisIied. However, I have Iound many Iindings in GH during my
several times visit in Golden Horizon imited:
1. Fair system in recruitment and selection process: Golden Horizon imited believes in Iair
recruitment and selection process Ior their employees. %hey try to make the whole
process unbiased and Iair. %he transparency in recruitment & selection process is their
Iirst priority.
2. Hiring the right number oI employees in right place: the objective oI Golden Horizon
imited is to make sure that each department has suIIicient workIorce to get the
organization ahead.
3. %he whole HR department is very well designed and organized, even though limited
workIorce is a problem sometimes.
4. Not paying enough attention to the employee development and their demand.

3. Excess manpower should be reduced.
4. Worker grievance should be eliminating immediately.
5. ong term HR planning should be maintained.
6. %he compensation package in Golden Horizon imited is not Attractive they should
restructure their salary and other compensation.
7. As there is competency gap in employees Golden Horizon imited should start employee
training and other development programs to develop the employees.
8. iIIerent leave Iacilities should be ensured.
9. ob security should be ensured Iirst oI all to retain current employee.


As per observation in Golden Horizon imited I Iound that there is a good industrial relation
existing within the Iactory. It is very much required Ior a garment Iactory. A good IR reduced
labor turnover, absenteeism and administrative cost. It is come to true that now-a-days without
having a good IR will not be able to grow up its business. Golden Horizon imited have a good
working environment and most oI the worker are committed to IulIill their as well as
organization`s vision and mission.
I tried my level best to represent details oI the Iunction oI HR department. I hope that this report
will come in the light oI success iI any individual/organization receives any help Irom it.
