Privatisation and Employees’ Job Security: Lessons From Bangladesh

Mehadi Mamun


This study looks at the human face of privatisation and examines employees’ job security in privatised state-owned enterprises in Bangladesh. The study uses semi-structured face-to-face interviews and document analysis of relevant secondary source materials. The study finds that permanent employees at the state-owned organisations feel secure in their jobs. By contrast, an average of 67% of permanent employees at the privatised state-owned organisations feel insecure about their jobs. The findings have important implications for the privatisation programmes and suggests that there is a need to place greater emphasis on a more context sensitive approach to privatisation programmes in Bangladesh.
