Md. Hafij Ullah, Md. Helal Uddin, Ruma Khanam


Human Resource (HR) disclosure in Textile companies in a developing country with abundance of human resources like Bangladesh is a new flavor in social accounting literature. The study is an investigation of HR disclosure practices and its relationship with the company specific attributes of all 29 listed Textile companies in Bangladesh. The study considered 81 human resource items under eight different classes which are expected to be disclosed in the annual report. The study found that though some graphs, charts and pictures were used for HR disclosure but most of the information was disclosed in narrative form. Sample companies on an average disclosed about 50% and about 60% companies disclosed less than 50% of the expected HR items and HR disclosure is significantly related with the size of the companies measured by gross revenue. The study expects that textile companies would disclose more HR information in future to attract more promising employees.
