  • The Relationship between Working Capital Management and Profitability

    • Abstract: Working capital management is an important concept that could influence companies in many ways. An efficient management of working capital can help a company to manage its finances and increases its profitability. This study investigates the relationship between working capital management and profitability in non-financial companies listed in the Saudi Stock Exchange. A sample of 67 companies is used for a period of ten years (2007-2016). Quantitative method using multiple linear regression and pooled data set is used for analysis. The results indicate a positive relationship between working capital management and profitability. However, each company could have a different optimal level of working capital and could require different strategies to increase profitability. This study is limited to non-financial companies listed in the Saudi Stock Exchange. This study is a positive contribution to working capital management literature as it uses a relatively large sample, a longer time period, and multiple profitability proxies in the context of Saudi Arabia which has few researches in this area.

  • Relationship between Job Stress and the Turnover Intention of Private
           Sector Bank Employees in Bangladesh

    • Abstract: Private sector banks are important segments of the economy of Bangladesh. This sector has already been recognized as a significant industry for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) of Bangladesh. However, managing private organizations has become very challenging due to highly competitive market and higher level of employee turnover especially in the private banking sector. It is observed that to attain the competitive advantage, private bank employees are undertaking heavy workload that leads to higher level of stress at work and is increasing turnover intention among the employees. This study has been designed to explore the factors that are accountable to create stress among the private bank employees in Bangladesh which are creating turnover intention among them. Hence, this study identified the relationships between job stress factors and the increase of turnover intensions among the bank employees in Bangladesh. A total of 206 bank employees at different levels of the banks were interviewed from ten private commercial banks of Bangladesh. A structured questionnaire was designed through literature review to collect the information from the respondent employees. Both descriptive and inferential statistics were used to analyze the data. Multivariate analysis techniques were used to identify the work stress factors having influence on the turnover intention among the private bank employees in Bangladesh. Results show that there are four stress factors that increase the turnover tension among the private bank employees in Bangladesh such as, (i) long hours and fast work, (ii) clearness of goals and objectives of work, (iii) workload and change in mindset, and (iv) flexibility at work. This study suggests that the policymakers of the private commercial banks should address the issues like long hours and fast work, clearness of goals and objectives of work, workload and change in mindset and flexibility at work for reducing turnover intensions of the bank employees in Bangladesh.

  • TMT Cognitive Capability and Organizational Outcomes: A Theoretical Review

    • Abstract: Extant strategic management literature has followed two divergent paradigms. One is based on the tenets of industrial organization theory and argues that strategic decision making and action is purely a chance affair because the industry environment determines whether an organizational will survive or not and that the decisions and actions of the organizational players have no role at all. The second paradigm is based on the Resources Based View (RBV) and argues that organizational strategic choice and action is purely a resources, capability and competence deployment affair. Even though recent scholarship in strategic management has attempted to integrate the two paradigms to explain organizational strategic decision making and outcome, it is however yet to put forward a theoretical model explaining how the two paradigms integrate. In this paper, the authors bring on board a managerial cognitive capability perspective to play the role of a catalyst that blends the two paradigms together in explaining organizational outcomes. The paper reviews extant conceptual, theoretical and empirical literature and builds a case for a theoretical model linking TMT cognitive capability and organizational outcomes in the context of both industry environment dynamics and internal organization dynamics. The study identifies key organization outcomes resulting from the deployment of TMT cognitive capability as strategic choice, strategic flexibility and organizational performance while the key contextual factor that condition the outcomes include industry velocity and organizational characteristics. Based on the postulates of several underpinning theories, the paper identifies a phenomenon arising from deployment of TMT Cognitive Capability in the context of dynamic business environments and proposes a theoretical model that raises several implications for future empirical work.

  • Information Sources and Domestic Tourism at Sanyuesan Festival, China

    • Abstract: Festival tourism is part of a phenomenon which is rather larger than its tourism component. The relationship between people and the various elements of the festival may be complicated by the changing availability of information sources, including web-based sources, as well as changing relationships towards those sources with respect to access ease and trust. A sample of 400 respondents was achieved via online questionnaire distribution to investigate these issues and to formulate lessons that might inform marketing strategies relating to future iterations of the festival. It was found that no straightforward relationships existed with respect to segmentation of the sample and, therefore, population and that attitudes towards both information sources and the institutions of the festival are undergoing a process of change.

  • Perception of Social-Sexual Behavior and Workers’ Productivity in
           Selected Banks in Nigeria

    • Abstract: In this study, the effect of social sexual behavior on workers’ productivity is examined from the perspective of individual managers, individual employees and work groups. A case study of banks in Delta State, Nigeria, is adopted to investigate the effect of social sexual behavior on workers’ productivity from a different cultural perspective as obtainable in literature. A measure of workers’ productivity and their interaction with components of social sexual behavior; sexual harassment and workplace romances, was obtained from 110 employees sampled from three banks within the study region through a questionnaire. Sex, age, marital status, education and employment status were adopted as moderating variables for the study. Multiple regression analysis was used in testing the hypotheses of the study. Result of this work reveal amongst others that sexually suggestive jokes or comments about a person’s dress or body, made in their presence or directed towards them from a co-worker or customer could lead to demoralization of workers and poor interpersonal job performance between coworkers or of a worker towards a customer. The study further reveal that workplace romance could trigger jealousy among other employees, thereby leading to a failed interpersonal job performance and low productivity. The study recommends that organizations should clearly define their climate for social sexual behavior to both workers and customers through policies and sensitization with strict penalties given to defaulters.
