  • Impact of human resource interventions on work-life balance: a study on
           Indian IT sector
    • Pages: 329 - 336
      Abstract: Industrial and Commercial Training, Volume 49, Issue 7/8, Page 329-336, September 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to examine the significant predictors of work-life balance (WLB) by highlighting the human resource interventions in IT industries. Design/methodology/approach Exploratory factor analysis and multiple regression analysis have been used to analyse the data by using the SPSS version 20. Primary data have been incorporated from 245 software professionals through a structured questionnaire from the IT industry in India. Findings The study examines nine independent variables that significantly envisage the dependent variables (WLB), among them only three factors are extracted such as training and development, teamwork and communication, and financial and non-financial rewards which were found to be significant predictors of WLB. The hypothesis as suggested for the study has been significant. Research limitations/implications This paper provides a practical interpretation about an overview of human resource interventions vital for better WLB in software organisations. It also provides insights to practitioners, IT managers and administrators for instigating these interventions. Practical implications The achievement of WLB is a delightful indulgence for professionals as well as organisations. It becomes indispensable for top management to focus on HR interventions for stimulating the degree of WLB. The study empirically categorizes the various interventions pivotal to improve the degree of WLB in the IT sector. Originality/value As there has been substantial research evidence exploring the work-life imbalance, its cause, effects and overcoming it through a balanced life is studied. This study has identified innovative insight of embracing employees and thriving commitment among employees through HR interventions which acts as a strong predictor for WLB. There are limited empirical traces in the Indian IT sector investigating the above context.

  • Enhancing engineers’ public speaking efficacy using appreciative
    • Abstract: Industrial and Commercial Training, Ahead of Print.
      Purpose Existing methods of enhancing-based public speaking efficacy are based on the deficit-based model. On the other hand, public speaking is an ability that has a potential to produce anxiety, fear of negative evaluation. The purpose of this paper was to explore the use of strength-based learning pedagogy, i.e. appreciative inquiry to work upon enhancing public speaking skills of engineers. Design/methodology/approach An appreciative inquiry was conducted on 15 engineers using 4D model. The data were gathered using narrative analysis and grounded theory. Findings Participants shared their stories of past, present and future to derive meaningful insights that have potential to bring development. Research limitations/implications The study has an underpinning in Deci and Ryan’s self-determination theory. As practitioners of self-determination theory open the positive space for individuals to learn, appreciative inquiry aids in opening such positive space so that learners can experiment openly without any fear of negative evaluation. It prepares them by enhancing intrinsic and extrinsic motivation. Practical implications The study motivated engineers to focus on effortless delivery of their speeches and eliminate other associated fear. The study can be used as a classroom pedagogy. Social implications As public speaking is associated with fear of negative evaluation and anxiety, it has a potential to affect self-confidence and self-image adversely. As appreciative inquiry fosters one’s confidence positively through constructionism, the appreciative inquiry can be a choice of pedagogy and has positive implications for learners at the social level. Originality/value The study presents a fairly novel approach as it focuses on encouraging engineers to improve their presentation skills and to focus on what they do well (rather than what their weaknesses are) so they can build their confidence.

  • Engaging workforce in downsized firms: scenario of the Indian IT/ITES
    • Abstract: Industrial and Commercial Training, Ahead of Print.
      Purpose Organisations increasingly reduce enterprise costs via cost cutting measures of downsizing/layoffs as a short-term strategy. The purpose of this paper is to illustrate the scenario of downsizing in the Indian IT/ITES sector and also identify enablers to develop and engage talent in downsized firms. Design/methodology/approach This paper is a general review. Findings Despite higher growth rates in the recent years, the IT/ITES sector faces an uncertain future due to economic recession, which has changed the business scenario across the globe. Organisations need to resuscitate employees’ confidence and self-efficacy through psychosocial support mechanisms like professional guidance by an emotionally intelligent leader, capacity-building measures, and continuous learning opportunities. They should prepare scheduled reviews by taking into account individual needs, learning styles, and current work priorities. Provisions for adequate pay, fringe benefits, job security, and healthy working conditions can further enhance morale and motivation of survivors. Originality/value This paper contributes to the literature of downsizing in the Indian context. Moreover, it emphasises on the significant roles of communication policies, knowledge sharing, and learning in rebuilding the psychological contract of employees.

  • Effective leadership development in information technology: building
           transformational and emergent leaders
    • Abstract: Industrial and Commercial Training, Ahead of Print.
      Purpose Effective leadership has been the focus of much research in recent years, but leadership development is still understudied. Information technology (IT) continues to grow in importance due to the industries IT creates, the industries IT disrupts, and the potential IT holds for all companies. Because leadership is highly context bound, the purpose of this paper is to examine leadership development in the IT context to take first steps toward establishing best practices for IT leadership development. Design/methodology/approach This conceptual paper reviews leadership in general before performing an integrated literature review of leadership as it has been studied in the IT context. Then the paper presents three propositions regarding effective IT leadership development. Findings IT leadership development should involve formal mentoring, robust feedback that is integrated into the development plan, and should be treated as a core process for long-term success. Emergent and transformational leadership are important for IT. Practical implications It behooves IT departments to implement the leadership development programs proposed here because leadership has been identified as one of the most difficult skills to find in IT employees. The findings can inform training professionals exploring ways to improve the leadership capacity and leadership development in the IT units of their organizations. Originality/value The paper’s literature review uncovered no quantitative peer-reviewed research on leadership development in the IT context, suggesting an area of need for further empirical studies. Researchers and practitioners alike will benefit from a greater understanding of leadership development in IT.

  • Psychometric evaluation of need-based quality of work life scale in an
           Indian sample
    • Abstract: Industrial and Commercial Training, Ahead of Print.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to examine the psychometric properties of the need-based measure of quality of work life (QWL) in the Indian context. Design/methodology/approach The need-based QWL instrument was validated using the 380 samples collected from public and private sector employees working in India. The data were obtained via self-administered structured questionnaires. The data were examined conducting exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses with the help of SPSS AMOS (version 21). Findings The two-factor model confirmed the superiority over the seven-factor model in the Indian context. The results are strongly supported by the extant literature in organizational behavior domain. Originality/value Despite being the second highest populated country and one of the largest skill labor facilitator to the work economy, India lags behind in well-being-related studies as compared to its Western and Asian counterparts. This study has validated and simplified the complex need-based QWL measure in the Indian context. This is easily understandable that QWL instrument is believed to encourage the well-being research in India.

  • Establishing the financial returns arising from an evaluation of a retail
           training programme
    • Abstract: Industrial and Commercial Training, Ahead of Print.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to propose an evaluation of training for shop assistants, specifically in retail chains. Design/methodology/approach The proposed evaluation is based on Kirkpatrick’s model and Phillips’ modification. The representative case study includes the application of the training evaluation at the fourth and fifth levels of evaluation in a particular chain of retail stores. The data were collected from the retail chain’s financial reports, internal documents related to training of employees and interviews with managers in the retail chain. Findings The results contribute to the training evaluation literature by presenting a training evaluation for shop assistant using evidence from a retail chain. The training focussed on selling skills and product knowledge; the details of evaluating the training are presented, encompassing mainly the benefits and costs of the training and return on investment calculation. Research limitations/implications The training evaluation was tested only in selected types of training courses for shop assistants. To generalise the results, its adoption in different types of training and retail companies is required in future research. Practical implications The application of this training evaluation should help to achieve training objectives and enhance the quality of training in the retail chain. The results of the paper can be used as practical inspiration for managers of retail stores. Originality/value This paper proposes and applies a specific evaluation of training courses in retail.

  • From Big Data to Big Impact: analytics for teaching and learning in higher
    • First page: 321
      Abstract: Industrial and Commercial Training, Ahead of Print.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to examine the applicability of Big Data in higher education institutions. Design/methodology/approach A qualitative research approach using semi-structured interviews was employed to get insights from 23 experts from the Indian higher education sector. Respondents included higher education specialists from information technology, administration and academicians from public and private funded institutions. Findings Based on competitive advantage and data complexity, four major application areas were identified for the use of Big Data in higher education. These application areas are reporting and compliance; analysis and visualization; security and risk mitigation; and predictive analytics. Research limitations/implications Qualitative methodology is suitable to explain constructs and relationships between constructs, but it does not explain the magnitude of the relationships. The lack of Big Data experts in higher education constrained the ability of this research by leading to repeated themes. Finally, including participants from other countries would have assisted further in generalizing the findings. Originality/value As both interest and reluctance persists about Big Data, it calls for the application across industries and cost-benefit analyses. A number of researchers have studied the use of Big Data in various fields associated with the applicability, the data availability, the cost, the competence, the privacy, the relevance and the ownership. Very few publications explicitly address the integrative use of Big Data in higher education. So the current study examines the applicability of Big Data analytics in higher education institutions.

           the box
    • First page: 337
      Abstract: Industrial and Commercial Training, Ahead of Print.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to explore how cultural intelligence (CQ) and emotional intelligence (EI) can assist with navigating the complexities associated with diversity in the workplace. Design/methodology/approach This paper was developed through a comprehensive literature review related to the constructs of EI and CQ. Findings The authors focused on the conceptualization and evolution of the intelligence types as reflected in the literature, examine research that connects the intelligence types with issues of the workplace, and its contributions when used in a diverse workplace for improving organizational outcomes and access and inclusion of underrepresented cultural and social groups. Originality/value This paper explores the constructs of EQ and CQ and specifically the value the constructs may provide to individuals and organizations. Further, means of developing CQ and EI are discussed

  • Perception of employees toward e-learning service quality: exploratory
           factor analysis
    • First page: 350
      Abstract: Industrial and Commercial Training, Ahead of Print.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the employee’s perception toward e-learning programs or services and to explore the attribute for improvements. Design/methodology/approach For this study, 294 employees from four different types of banks in North India were selected as respondents. Four types of banks were considered – government bank, private bank, foreign bank, and cooperative bank. The respondents were asked to give their responses as per their perceptions toward e-learning on a five-point Likert scale. Findings Although e-learning has not been able to fulfill its promise in revolutionizing corporate training in India, there is little doubt that in future the mode of learning will play a major role in human resource development in India because the research carried out on the successful implementation of e-learning is mostly in the western part of world. Originality/value The present study provides a useful insight about employee perceptions on the effectiveness of e-learning, which ultimately improves the e-service quality and results in the improvement of satisfaction of customers in the online banking sector.

  • Military leadership development strategies: implications for training in
           non-military organizations
    • First page: 357
      Abstract: Industrial and Commercial Training, Ahead of Print.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to explore how branches of the USA military conduct leadership development of their members to build on existing knowledge of effective approaches. The military, often credited for its ability to develop leadership competencies, has been overlooked and offers a new context for consideration in training. Training strategies presented may offer organization leaders new insight into enhancing current leadership development programs. Design/methodology/approach A review of accessible military doctrine in recent decades was conducted to determine leadership development methodology for possible transferability into industry. Findings The military’s diverse perspectives on service member leadership development offered insightful methods for application in commercial training. Four development strategies were identified and are discussed. Research limitations/implications The purpose of the military is unique from non-military organizations and, as such, each of the leadership development training approaches may not be applicable or feasible for traditional employees. Further exploration of leadership development in the US military is required to better understand the impact of the training. Originality/value A review of existing literature revealed little evidence of examining the military’s approach to developing leaders, even though employers claim to hire veterans because of their leadership abilities. Each of the identified development components are distinguishable from traditional leadership programs and present readers a series of opportunities to consider.
