Human Resource Management in the Bangladesh Garment Industry: An Exploratory Investigation

posted on 2018-04-15, 23:48 authored by MOHAMMAD JASIM UDDIN
Despite considerable research and constant pressure from global media, the exploitation of workers has been a persistent problem in the Bangladesh garment industry. The industry’s working conditions are the subject of continuous inquiry, yet the root cause for the continuation of the exploitation and how it shapes individual experiences remain unexplored. The aim of this study was to explore the root cause of exploitation in the Bangladesh garment industry. This study found that pressures from powerful external and internal actors lead to the perpetuation of exploitation. The study provided recommendations on how to improve the situation by exerting pressures properly.
