    • Authors: Abu Shams Mohammad Mahmudul Hoque, Zainudin Bin Awang, Benazir Ahmed Siddiqui, Malam Salihu Sabiu
      Pages: 19 - 37
      Abstract: Past studies endorsed that there is a quite number of factors have been considered as the influencing factors of employee performance in an organization. Some of these are selection, training and development, performance appraisal, promotion, job design, security, and satisfaction, compensation system, employee commitment, personality, emotional intelligence, organizational citizenship behavior among others. While several studies considered investigating the influence of human resource management practices on employee performance in different context such as America, Africa and Europe, but very little attention have given in South-Asian countries like Bangladesh.  Hence, this manuscript attempted to investigate the impact of compensation system on employee performance using quantitative analysis. To do so, survey was conducted as well as perceptions of 200 employees working in telecommunication service providers in Bangladesh were obtained to analyze the relationships. The data is analyzed and hypotheses were tested by using IBM-SPSS-AMOS package 25.0. The study found that employee engagement partially mediates the relationship between compensation system and employee performance by the data of this study. This research indorsed that there is a candid need to implement better compensation system by the entrepreneurs which will ensure better employee performance in line with consistent growth of firms as well as Bangladeshi GDP.

           Generation’s Perception in Malaysia

    • Authors: Che Supian Mohamad Nor, Ramesh Kumar Moona Haji Mohamed, Charles Ramendran SPR, Prem Kumar Nadarajan, Vimala Kadiresan
      Pages: 38 - 52
      Abstract: Generational differences on workforce in Malaysia have stirred the value of trade unionism. The transition from generation-X to generation-Y has created diverse perceptions on the relevance of being a member of a trade union. In the near future, generation-Y will be the bastion of the Malaysian workforce. They will be a fundamental actor in reshaping the industrial relations ecosystem in Malaysia. In this respect, this study focused on unionized and non-unionized generation-X and Y employee’s perception on the importance of trade unionism in the Malaysian context. Using a qualitative study, face-to-face semi-structured interviews with targeted respondents were conducted. The findings showed that the trade union do bring contributions to employees and protect employees from unfair actions but the density of trade unions declined due to unclear information known about trade unionism among generation Y. Based on the research findings, practical implications are discussed.

  • High-Performance Human Resource Practices and Team Job Satisfaction:
           Moderating Role of Team Citizenship Behaviors

    • Authors: Kaumudi Misra
      Pages: 86 - 102
      Abstract: Strategic human resource management literature has highlighted the role of high performance work systems as a set of workplace practices that enhance employee productivity and organizational performance. While the high performance literature has been around for over two decades now, research in this area has been staggered, and inconclusive about the organizational variables that comprise high performance work practices, as well as the effects of these practices on organizational outcomes - especially attitudinal employee outcomes such as job satisfaction and commitment. By creating an environment of empowerment and teamwork, high performance work practices motivate employees to perform better.  One of the ways in which these workplace practices achieve higher performance is by eliciting discretionary, or extra-role behaviors, from employees. Using foundational research from the high performance paradigm, this paper examines the effects of team-level strategic HR practices on job satisfaction. Analyses of data collected from 138 frontline teams in US Midwestern hospitals, show that while self-managed work teams and team communication result in higher job satisfaction for members, this effect is mitigated when team members display organizational citizenship behaviors. Theoretical and practical implications of finds are discussed.

  • Getting to the “Source” of Feedback-Seeking: Impact of
           Feedback-Seeking on Supervisor Stress

    • Authors: Joe Krasman
      Pages: 103 - 117
      Abstract: In the workplace, feedback-seeking occurs between two parties - a seeker (e.g. subordinate) who asks for feedback and a source (e.g. supervisor) who responds. This study examines the impact of feedback-seeking on sources' role overload, role conflict, and stress. A survey was conducted of supervisors. Results showed that frequency of being sought for feedback is positively related to sources' stress. In addition, role overload, but not role conflict, fully mediated this relationship. These findings suggest that feedback-seeking may have a downside for sources. Specifically, if sources are asked for feedback too often, they may fall behind in their work and experience role overload and stress. Recommendations are put forth for preventing feedback-seeking from having a negative impact on sources.

  • The Role Perceptions of Newly Appointed Senior School Leaders in the
           Western Cape, South Africa and Abu Dhabi United Arab Emirates: A
           Comparative Case Study

    • Authors: Nelius Jansen van Vuuren
      Pages: 118 - 132
      Abstract: The role of the senior school leader, in school leadership teams, has been intensely deliberated over the years. Professional learning and leadership approaches and experiences for newly appointed senior school leaders have been extensively linked to the role perceptions of new school leaders. The importance of appropriate recommendations for policy and practice highlight the need for complex developmental support ingenuities to support their perceived development needs. Extensive teaching experience may be the only requirement for being appointed as a senior school leader, as also suggested by the Western Cape Education system (WCED). A developing system such as the Abu Dhabi Education  Council (ADEC) system, highly qualified individuals make up for a lack of experience. Both these perceptions support the notion that no further professional development is required for newly appointed school leaders, the problem addressed in this paper. This article report and compare the main findings of the perceived roles and responsibilities of newly appointed senior school leaders in the Western Cape, South Africa, and Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (UAE). The perceived roles and responsibilities of newly appointed school leaders, suggest a unique and specialist development approach to support effective leadership. The outcomes of this study further suggest a need for contextualised, individualised training and support in their individualised roles and responsibilities. The paper, therefore, employs a mixed-method approach to gather data to understand the perceived roles and responsibilities of newly appointed senior school leaders in the Western Cape, South Africa and Abu Dhabi, UAE.

  • The Influence of Communication on Knowledge Integration in CFTs: A Case of
           Chinese Mobile Applications Enterprise

    • Authors: Yixuan Wang
      Pages: 133 - 146
      Abstract: We examine the relationship between communication and knowledge integration (KI) in the context of a cross-functional teams (CFTs). Although communication is one of the most important processes for integrating knowledge in CFTs, little research examines the relationship between them. We adopt both qualitative and quantitative research methods in a Chinese mobile applications enterprise. We find that team communication plays a key role in the KI of CFTs. Team members should have sufficient communication with each other for cross-functional activities. Also, communication network structure in an enterprise can influence KI. Thus, enterprises need to select suitable team members before the project begins for effective KI in CFTs.
