Being a service providing organization Dhaka Bank Limited is always concerned with customers’ satisfaction. It is the principle condition to have a long run existence in the banking sector, to have a position in the customer mind. Personnel of this Bank are tried heart and soul. By utilizing the time, effort and experience, employees of this Bank want to have a prosperous growth. The success depends on the customer satisfaction and proper utilization of non-human resources are managed by human resources. So human resources should be selected and trained by in Dhaka Bank Limited in such a way so that they would be capable to do the task significantly.
Recruitment and Selection Program is the most important tools to have the desired employees. Moreover personnel should be trained to develop their performance. It is expected to have standardized performance from the personnel. Performance Appraisal is the program to evaluate employees’ current performance with that of their standard one.

So Human Resource Division should do its activities being free from any corruption. Fruitfulness of the overall performance depends on the willingness of HRD.
DBL should increase the no. f employees to satisfy its customers. If anybody wants to import then he must have an account. But in DBL if anybody wants to open an account in DBL that time he must have an introducers which was doing anything in the DBL or employee of DBL. For that reason they lost many client or deposit.
In a competitive financial market, their products & services need to focused more on customers’ needs then simply offering what the customers are offering. They should do more marketing activities to improve their presence in the minds of the target market and also the potential target market. As we see that, Media coverage of DBL is not so strong.
To attract new clients, they should go for mass media coverage. Even though DBL is running online business very successfully they should open more ATM booths to meet customer needs and to meet the competitions The Brochures of the Products and Services of the Bank can be mailed with the welcome letters along with the Statements of the Customers via courier. No extra cost will be incurred in this.
As every activity is done systematically so adequate measures are to be taken to reduce system failure. Employees should be selected on the basis of their qualifications rather than reference. Training Program must emphasis on practical thing rather theoretical one.
