ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

The time we have spent in Karachi University Business School from 2013 till date has provided us a lot of experience on how to accomplish tasks in groups and how to deal with difficult situations. We have had so many rich experiences and opportunities that we personally believe it will shape our professional life while fostering personal growth and development.

In our attempt to write this HR report, we do not claim or assert to come out with a perfect one. Thus, we remain open to all criticisms and suggestions which could present us with new sources of knowledge and inspiration as we develop our ability to research and learn.

This report would not have been possible without the contribution and collaboration of others. Our sincere gratitude:

  • To Almighty ALLAH who granted us health and long life, without which we could not have finished this HR report.
  • To our course instructor, Sir Muhammad Yamman Khan for his exemplary guidance, monitoring and constant encouragement throughout the course. The help and guidance given by him time to time will carry us a long way in the journey of life on which we are about to embark.
  • To Ms. .Maher Ali (Manager, HR Operations) at Al-Karam Marketing for highly cooperating with us in sharing all the information about the the HR practices of the company and Ms. Rida Ali (Brand Manager) at Al-Karam Marketing for referring us to the concerned authorities and giving us her valuable time in explaining the HR practices in detail whenever needed. Their contribution proved to be very valuable to us within a limited time frame.
  • To our class fellows for always supporting, building and boosting our confidence.
  • To our families as they have always soothed us, elevated us and their words and prayers have enabled us to reach our goals. All of our success is due to our families.
