Welfare facilities hold a remarkable prominence in the banking sector. These facilities create a stimulating interest in the work force to produce their full capacity and pay a good return to the management in the long run. The main aim of this paper is to explore the major determinants of welfare practices in the banking sector. To achieve this aim, data has been collected from 524 bank employees from the different regions of Punjab state i.e. Majha, Malwa and Doaba. Factor analysis is used to find out the determinants of welfare practices.
