  • Relationships between advanced manufacturing technologies, absorptive
           capacity, mass customization, time to market and financial and market
           performance
    • Pages: 2 - 20
      Abstract: Asia-Pacific Journal of Business Administration, Volume 10, Issue 1, Page 2-20, April 2018.
      Purpose The purpose of the paper is to empirically investigate the relationships between advanced manufacturing technology (AMT), absorptive capacity, mass customization (MC) capability, competitive advantage, and organizational performance measures. Design/methodology/approach Based on a literature review, a theoretical framework is derived. Structural equation modeling was chosen for the empirical analysis based on the focus of the research. Data collection was conducted from 232 Indian manufacturing managers. Findings The findings indicate that absorptive capacity has a positive impact on MC capability. Also, MC capability mediated the relationship between AMT and the financial and market performance. Furthermore, AMT positively impacted MC capability, and MC capability positively impacted both time to market and financial and market performance. AMT was not found to have a significant impact on financial and market performance. Originality/value The current study is meaningful and unique in that no study has investigated the linkages between AMT, absorptive capacity, MC capability and organization performance and competitive advantage measures in a unified context. Such investigations are important because the results will encourage managers to invest in developing these mechanisms, which in turn will influence firm’s ability to implement MC practices and yield benefits such as improved performance and competitive advantage.

  • Determinants of ethical work behaviour of Malaysian public sector auditors
    • Pages: 21 - 34
      Abstract: Asia-Pacific Journal of Business Administration, Volume 10, Issue 1, Page 21-34, April 2018.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to investigate factors affecting ethical work behaviour among Malaysian public sector auditors. Based on Hunt and Vitell model, there are four research objectives for this study: to investigate the influence of ethical climate on public sector auditors ethical work behaviour; to examine the effect of professional commitment on ethical work behaviour of public sector auditors; to investigate the effect of corporate ethical values (CEV) on ethical work behaviour of public sector auditors; and to examine the effect of ethical ideology on ethical work behaviour of public sector auditors. Design/methodology/approach The respondents of the study were public sector auditors of National Audit Department in Malaysia. Using a survey questionnaire comprising instruments about the ethical climate, CEV, professional commitment, ethical ideology and organisational misbehaviour, a total of 382 were received and usable. In achieving the research objectives, multiple regressions were performed. Findings The results reveal that ethical work behaviour among public sector auditors in Malaysia is influenced by law and independence ethical climate, professional commitment, CEV and both idealism and relativism ethical ideology. Originality/value The present study provides new additional empirical evidence on determinants of ethical work behaviour of auditors in public sector from a developing economy (i.e. Malaysia) which is currently limited.

  • Emotional intelligence as a moderator in abusive supervision-intention to
           quit relationship among Indian healthcare professionals
    • Pages: 35 - 49
      Abstract: Asia-Pacific Journal of Business Administration, Volume 10, Issue 1, Page 35-49, April 2018.
      Purpose Despite knowledge of the destructive effect of abusive supervision on several individual and organizational outcomes, the construct remains scarcely investigated, especially in Indian organizations. Drawing upon the conservation of resources theory, the purpose of this paper is to explore the linkage between abusive supervision (an interpersonal stressor) and subordinate’s intention to quit and to focuss on the moderating role of subordinate’s emotional intelligence as a neutralizer in curbing the pernicious effect of abusive supervision on subordinate’s intention to quit. Design/methodology/approach The participants of this study were 353 healthcare professionals working in a large Indian hospital chain having all India presence. The authors have collected data on our predictor and criterion variables at two time points with a separation of three to four weeks for reducing common method bias (Podsakoff et al., 2012). At Time 1, participants rated the perception of their supervisor’s abusiveness and answered few demographic questions. At Time 2, participants completed measures of intention to quit and their emotional intelligence. Findings The finding of this study corroborates the assertion that subordinates who perceive their supervisors to be abusive have higher intension to quit organization. But surprisingly, this study reports that the moderating effect of emotional intelligence showed stronger relationship between abusive supervision and intention to quit when emotional intelligence is high than low. Practical implications Organization should take serious note of supervisors or managers that are abusive or are perceived to be abusive by their subordinates. As it is impossible to completely eradicate abusive and deviant supervisory behaviors at workplace, these toxic behaviors can be checked at several levels like hiring people high on emotional intelligence and through imparting emotional intelligence training and counseling to both the accused and the victim. Originality/value The study finds support to the relationship between abusive supervision and intention to quit in Indian context. The finding of this study fails to empirically corroborate the assumption that emotional intelligence will act as a neutralizer in mitigating the pernicious effect of abusive supervision on subordinates’ intention to quit.

  • Small businesses’ internationalization
    • Pages: 50 - 63
      Abstract: Asia-Pacific Journal of Business Administration, Volume 10, Issue 1, Page 50-63, April 2018.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to examine whether international readiness, including innovation, competition, technology-orientation and opportunity perception, impacts on internationalization of small businesses differently in Asian countries compared to the complete Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) sample. Design/methodology/approach This study uses data from the Adult Population Survey – GEM carried out in 69 countries yielding a cross-country total of 198,339 entrepreneurs. A binomial logit regression model is used to examine the data. Findings The results show that there are differences for Asian countries compared to the whole sample regarding innovation-related drivers. In Asian countries, for small businesses, internationalization is less sensitive to product innovation and to opportunities’ perception than for the rest of the countries. Practical implications This study has practical relevance as it provides numerous clues regarding the question of how small business (or new ventures) might enhance chances to become successful exporters. Originality/value This study addresses an area that is believed to be less studied. The study compares the proposed relationships between two data sub-samples that represent the Asian countries and the complete GEM sample. The paper concludes with a discussion of the main contributions and limitations and suggests future research avenues.

  • Salary or job interest' How salary and job interest moderates the
           willingness to apply for a job
    • Pages: 64 - 78
      Abstract: Asia-Pacific Journal of Business Administration, Volume 10, Issue 1, Page 64-78, April 2018.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to explore whether salary and job interest moderates the relationship between corporate image and willingness to apply for a job and to examine that salary or job interest has a stronger influence on willingness to apply for a job. Design/methodology/approach Research data were obtained through questionnaires by the method of convenience sampling, distributed in employment expos and career guidance centers in Taichung and Chiayi area, Taiwan. In total, 300 questionnaires were collected. Excluding the invalid questionnaires, there were 285 valid questionnaires. Then, the study applied hierarchical regressions to test moderating effects and each hypothesis. Findings The study found that corporate image, salary, and job interest have significant positive effects on willingness to apply. In order of level of influence on willingness to apply, the factors successively are job interest, salary, and corporate image. Both salary and job interest will exert moderating effects on willingness to apply, and job interest has a stronger influence than salary. Research limitations/implications This study was limited on sample selection from only two regions, in addition to time and space restrictions. However, the research results still help an employer to understand the priority factors that may influence a job seeker’s decision to apply for a job. Originality/value A company with a good corporate image and generous salary system can enhance the interest of job seekers. At the same time, if the job content is consistent with the interest of the job seekers, they will be more eager to apply. It would be beneficial for both enterprises and applicants when the right candidate in the sea of job seekers is chosen for the right job.

  • The influence of corporate governance, and sufficiency economy philosophy
           disclosure on corporate financial performance
    • Pages: 79 - 99
      Abstract: Asia-Pacific Journal of Business Administration, Volume 10, Issue 1, Page 79-99, April 2018.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to investigate the nature and level of Sufficiency Economy Philosophy (SEP) disclosure in the annual reports of companies listed in the Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET), to test the influence of corporate governance on SEP disclosure, and to examine the influence of corporate governance, and SEP disclosure on corporate financial performance. Design/methodology/approach By simple random sampling, 235 out of 569 companies in the SET were selected as the study sample. Content analysis by word count was used to explore the nature and level of SEP disclosure in the 2015 annual reports. Descriptive analysis and path analysis were used to analyze the data. Findings The results indicated that the average level of SEP disclosure in the 2015 annual reports was 1,235 words. The most common theme of SEP disclosure was morality disclosure following by reasonableness, self-immunity, knowledge, and moderation disclosures. There was a positive significant influence of firm size on level of SEP. Moreover, there was a positive significant influence of the level of SEP, and the size of committee on corporate financial performance. Originality/value The findings shed light on the SEP as developed by his Majesty the King Bhumibhol Adulyadej in the Thai setting. The study also endeavored to validate the relevance and applicability of the SEP concept to the sustainable development of the business sector.

  • Tit for tat: burnout as a mediator between workplace incivility and
           instigated workplace incivility
    • Pages: 100 - 111
      Abstract: Asia-Pacific Journal of Business Administration, Volume 10, Issue 1, Page 100-111, April 2018.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to investigate the role of burnout as a mediator in the relationship between workplace incivility (WI) and instigated WI. Design/methodology/approach A survey of 303 white collar employees from small- to medium-size industries in Australia was conducted. Self-reported measures were used to obtain data on WI, burnout, and instigated WI. Mediation analyses with bootstrap via PROCESS was used ascertain the proposed relationship. Findings Results indicated that WI was positively linked to instigated WI. Importantly, results indicated that burnout fully mediated the relationship between WI and instigated WI. Research limitations/implications The correlational and self-report nature of the study exclude inference about causality between variables and may be more prone to bias. However, despite these limitations, pre- and post-cautionary steps were taken to ensure that these biases were kept at bay as much as is possible. Practical implications The study highlights that burnout may be an important underlying mechanism responsible for target’s and perpetrator’s uncivil relationships toward each other. Management should be cognizant of possible burnout among employees who experienced WI and to take appropriate training as preventive measures for WI. Originality/value This study responded to the call for more empirical investigation of WI. This study also integrated conservation of resources and the spiral of incivility theories to develop a theoretical model which linked WI to instigated WI.

  • The impact of person-organization fit and leader-member exchange on
           withdrawal behaviors in Thailand
    • Abstract: Asia-Pacific Journal of Business Administration, Ahead of Print.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to examine the impact of person-organization fit and leader-member exchange (LMX) on the withdrawal behaviors of Thai employees. Design/methodology/approach Self-report questionnaires were received from 300 employees working in one of the largest Thai public universities. Exploratory factor analysis was conducted, followed by confirmatory factor analysis. Structural equation model was then implemented to test the relationships among all variables. Findings The results showed negative relationships between person-organization fit and withdrawal behaviors, between LMX and withdrawal behaviors, and between person-organization fit and LMX and an intention to leave. However, only person-organization fit was statistically significant with withdrawal behaviors and an intention to leave. The progression model of withdrawal behaviors was also supported. Research limitations/implications The self-report questionnaires were the limitations of the study. Practical implications This study highlighted the importance of withdrawal behaviors and an intention to leave an organization which are costly behaviors. Person-organization fit should be emphasized at the recruitment and selection process, and coherent human resource practices should be used in an organization to possibly lessen these costly behaviors. Originality/value This study contributed to the knowledge of withdrawal behaviors, covering both least severe and more extreme behaviors. This study suggested that an organization should pay attention to these least severe withdrawal behaviors among employees, since these can lead to an extreme withdrawal behavior – i.e. an intention to leave an organization.

      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to extend job embeddedness research by investigating employees’ perception of human resource (HR) practices as the predictors of organizational job embeddedness, and its mediating role between HR practices and quit intention. It also assesses the moderating effect of job satisfaction on the job embeddedness-turnover relationship. Design/methodology/approach Data were collected through a questionnaire survey from 1,028 accountants in various disciplines from one of the largest corporations in Thailand, including its numerous subsidiaries and joint ventures. Hypotheses were tested and analyzed by means of a confirmatory factor analysis, multiple regressions, and a bootstrapping procedure. Findings The results reveal that all HR practices except training are positively related to organizational job embeddedness. Analysis also provides support for the mediating effects on quit intention of two HR practices, namely rewards and career development, through organizational job embeddedness. In addition, the interaction effect shows that the negative relationship between organizational job embeddedness and quit intention reduces when job satisfaction is high. Research limitations/implications The current research took place among accountants. Replicating the study in a variety of business sectors, professions, or cultures would be useful for the generalizability of the findings. Practical implications Several HR strategies and tactics can help improve employee loyalty. Particularly effective are attractive rewards that reflect work values, and a promising career roadmap. Organizations might need to consider work conditions that sustain job satisfaction for turnover prevention in the short-term, and continuously manage long-term retention through embeddedness. Originality/value This study extends current research by investigating the relationships of so far untested theorized antecedents that clarify how employees become embedded in the workplace in order to keep them from quitting.
