  • A Welfare Model of Street Vendors: Cases from Denpasar, Bali, Indonesia

    • Authors: Desak Putu Eka Nilakusmawati, Made Susilawati, Geoffrey Wall
      Pages: 1 - 20
      Abstract: This study determines the socio-economic characteristics of street vendors in Denpasar, Bali, Indonesia and proposes a welfare model to examine their well-being. The results showed that street vendors in Denpasar are mostly male, married, with an average age of 39. Most are recent migrants who rent their housing. The majority sell food and beverages from carts and work almost 8 hours per day. Most are self-employed and may be assisted by family labor. Most do not do bookkeeping for their business activities and many are not registered businesses. Most have little access to capital and do not participate in empowerment programs in the form of education/training in business skills. Binary logistic regression analysis shows that the incomes of street vendors are related positively to marital status, age, employment status, physical facilities, and presence of bookkeeping.

  • Antecedents of Job Crafting Behavior within Organizations: The Role of
           Personal Resources, Job Resources and Perceived Opportunities to Craft in
           Employees Proactive Behavior

    • Authors: Jessica van Wingerden, Rob F Poell
      Pages: 135 - 154
      Abstract: This study examines the impact of personal resources and job resources on employees’ perceived opportunities to craft and job crafting behavior. Based on research following the Job Demands and Resources (JD-R) theory, we hypothesize that personal resources (i.e., resilience and self-efficacy) and job resources (i.e., developmental opportunities and feedback) have a positive relationship with employees’ perceived opportunities to craft and actual job crafting behavior in multiple and interrelated ways. We collected data among employees working in various organizations and occupations in The Netherlands (N=810), and tested the hypothesized multiple mediation model using structural equation modelling (SEM) analyses. The outcomes of the study increase our knowledge of the factors affecting  job crafting behavior within organizations – including employee perceptions (perceived opportunities to craft), employee characteristics (personal resources), and work characteristics (job resources). Combining these antecedents, this study may help to better understand and to stimulate job crafting behavior at work.

      Pages: 230 - 251
      Abstract: Many factors can affect recruiters, personnel managers or employers during employee selection process such as degrees and other typical qualifications of candidates the possess of the right transferable skills, the knowledge of job market, their working experience, the combination of personal attributes, self presentation skills, personality. Apart of them and many others factors, there is a consensus in a large extent, that candidates’ physical attractiveness can affect recruiters’ decisions during employment selection process, both in first stage of screening their curriculums’ vitae, as well as in the second stage which is the interview hiring process. This study aims to search the role of employee candidates’ physical attractiveness and its comparative impact between first stage of screening applicants according to their resumes and second stage of hiring decisions during employment interview. For this purpose, an empirical research has been conducted in order to explore the importance and relative impact of candidates’ physical attractiveness in decisions and selection process outcomes. In particular we asked two hundred and sixty recruiters’, personnel managers’ and employers in Greece about the impact of candidates’ physical attractiveness might have in their recruiting and hiring decisions. Results show that physical attractiveness influence recruiters decisions and affect selection outcomes in both selection stages. The impact is higher and statistically more significant in interview process. Physical attractiveness also compared to resume quality in order to explore relative impact among these factors. Results show a greater influence of resume quality than physical attractiveness.

  • Beyond the Dyad: Employee Networks, Social Influence, and the Performance
           of Interpersonal Forms of Citizenship Behavior

    • Authors: Randall Settoon
      Pages: 252 - 272
      Abstract: The purpose of this study is to explore the relationship between ICB performance and three network properties theorized to produce behavioral conformance: strong ties, relational embeddedness, and structural equivalence. Results of a multiple regression QAP of sociometric data provided by 33 facilities and maintenance employees of a large medical center showed that structurally equivalent employees performed similar levels of both instrumental and supportive ICB. Additionally, relational embeddedness was associated with similarity in the performance of supportive ICB. Interestingly, the network variables explained variance in ICB beyond that explained by antecedents of high-quality, dyadic exchange. These findings provide evidence that the larger social context can produce conformity in ICB performance through symbolic role-taking and normative compliance processes.

  • The Effect of Transformational Leadership on Company Innovation Culture:
           Perspectives from the Service Sector of an Emerging Economy

    • Authors: Irene Stella Agyenim-Boateng, Kyeame Ghansah
      Pages: 273 - 297
      Abstract: Focusing on the importance of innovation culture to the growth of firms, the study examined the effect of transformational leadership on the innovation culture of firms in the service industry in Ghana. The study further assessed the moderating role of organizational learning capability and market dynamism. A sample of 210 employees in the telecommunication, banking and insurance, tourism and hospitality sectors were surveyed. A quantitative research approach was employed to test the various relationships. The findings indicated that transformational leadership had a significant and positive relationship with innovation culture. The findings further revealed that the relationship between transformational leadership and innovation culture was positively enhanced by market dynamism. Organizational learning capability which had two dimensions, that is, interaction with external environment and dialogue had a partial moderating effect on innovation culture. The study provides executives with critical insights on the need to allow employees to make some decisions where necessary and also trust in their decision and not always control the work tightly from the top; as such micromanaging could have adverse impact on the firm’s innovation drive and culture. The researcher contributes to extant literature by finding the moderating role of market dynamism and learning capability on the effect of transformational leadership and innovation culture in an organisation specifically in the service industry of an emerging country.

      Abstract: When youth and NEET are mentioned together you do not only remember ‘youth not in employment, not in education, or not in training’, but it would also evoke your mind that it is a new type of poverty. Therefore, this paper explores the different possibilities and alternatives of dealing with NEET youth cases either before, or during, or after NEET issues occur and how to keep them away from filling into the new poverty trap.The paper reviews the International Inspiration Economy Project (IIEP) approaches in eliminating possibilities of poverty in relevance to NEET youth. Forty case projects are presented and categorised into three types of ‘intrinsic capacity’ practices that could be established to prevent or treat NEET youth. The framework proposes creating a new wave of thinking on the management of NEET to avoid a sophisticated type of poverty. The common thread of all solutions proposed is the optimisation of ‘visualisation techniques’ which could be established in the life of youth and used to raise their capacity towards eliminating the possibilities of falling into any type of poverty.

      Abstract: The diversity of tribes, religions, races, groups, and cultural expressions in various dimensions make Indonesia one of the most vibrant cultures in the world. However, it cannot be denied, that diversity has the potential to trigger social conflicts that can threaten the unity and unity of the nation and state and disrupt a safe and peaceful shared life. The long history of the Indonesian journey proves that social conflicts often occur due to the differences in ethnic groups, religious, racial background, and inter-group (SARA). Therefore, conflict resolution efforts are a necessity for Indonesia to realize a safe and peaceful shared life. This study was aimed to study the conflict resolution based on the history of the Indonesian Military Ordinariate in mitigating and resolving conflict. In general, there are two approaches to conflict resolution, namely intervention in security or stability and humanitarian intervention. Security interventions (stability) usually use military power to resolve conflicts, whereas humanitarian intervention integrates the strength of culture and local wisdom as a basis for resolving conflicts. Humanitarian intervention in resolving conflicts usually results in sustainable, peaceful reconciliation. A peace that occurs between the parties to the conflict is not due to compulsion under military pressure or State power but is born from the awareness of the parties to create mutually reconciling society.
