(Conclusion & Recommendations)



Southeast Bank Limited. Achieved stable growth and continuous as one of leading private sector Banks of the country. Since after its inception the Bank is satisfactorily contributing to the growth of GDP of the country through stimulation trade and commerce, acceleration the pace of industrialization, boosting up export, creating employment opportunity for the unemployed youths, poverty alleviation, raising standard of living of limited income group and overall sustainable socioeconomic development of the country. From the evaluation and analysis of the facts and information collected during the period of my involvement as an internee, it is clear that, Southeast Bank Limited is performing satisfactory over the last years and growing rapidly preserving a unique position in the banking sector of the country. The profitability of the Bank is showing increasing trend as a consequence of a dynamic investment management policy and farsighted efficient direction. The Bank has all the possibility of becoming maintain this trend of improvement and I think SEBL will be able to do so.



  • The Bank should consider the issue of better customer service more sincerely, and in this regard it may introduce various customer-oriented services, should automated operation.
  • Every employee should have individual computer to work faster and give better quality services to the customers.
  • The way of entrance of the branch is combined with other organization, for that Bank needs a separate entrance.
  • In this branch for the investment clients to give them clear idea about some formalities with the bank before sanctioning of investment facility particularly to the new investment clients.
  • It is necessary to increase the working capacity of all bankers in this Branch.
  • More training, professional development is required for more often. Officers should be sent for training for betterment of service.
  • For the employees of the Branch they do not have any canteen. Canteen facilities should be provided to the Branch.
  • Only higher salary package cannot satisfy a self-motivated and exposed employee in high level. The employee wants recognition and reward for their self-actualization. There are few reward and recognition options is available in SEBL should be review for deals with employee turnover.
  • HR development activities as individual, career and organizational by the HR department for enhancing the employee’s growth as well as achieve organizational hierarchy.
  • The recruitment process of the bank is very lengthy and expensive. The bank should select the employee by reducing the lengthy process.
  • One of the business strategies is promotion. Successful business depends how they can promote their products of services to the customer. In this connection to improve the business bank should introduce more promotional programs.
