  • Clawback Rule – The Ground of Managers Responsible. Model of

    • Authors: Pawel Dec, Piotr Masiukiewicz
      Pages: 18 - 27
      Abstract: The paper concerns the duties and responsibilities of managers using the principle of clawback. The authors proposed their own model of financial model of construction of remuneration for managers. There are in practice ethical problems concerning the level of requirements and qualifications versus salary and the level of legal and financial liability, especially against top-managers of the largest enterprises; often in a situation of extensive economic and social impact of their decisions. The problem of a manager’s responsibility has a dual nature. On the one hand the manager is charged with overall responsibility for all financial and PR losses of a company, on the other hand the manager takes moral, legal and financial responsibility for particular decisions. This article considers the financial responsibility area. The subprime financial crisis has sparked a discussion about the responsibility of top management in the context of disclosure of large bonuses paid to the senior managers and lack of consequences for bankruptcies. Very high salaries the executives were paid, were not sufficiently related to the system of contractual and administrative responsibility.

  • Core Competency and Performance Management in Selected Private Secondary
           Schools in Port Harcourt, Nigeria

    • Authors: Ngozi Nzewi, Ebele Onwuka, Godwin Bupo
      Pages: 28 - 39
      Abstract: The study sought to determine how core competencies are employed during the performance management process of the selected private secondary schools in Port Harcourt. The need to ascertain whether these organizations employ their core competencies during their performance evaluation process led to this study. Survey research design was employed for the study. Two research questions were raised and one hypothesis was tested at 0.05 level of significance. The population of the study was 210 workers in the two private secondary schools that were selected for the study (Graceland International Secondary School and Blessed Children Academy High School). The entire population was used for the study. Structured questionnaire was used for data collection. The reliability of the instrument, tested through split-half method, were 0.61 and 0.71 for sections B and C respectively. Mean and Standard deviation were used to answer the research questions while Z-test was used to test the hypothesis. The findings of the study revealed that the respondents agreed that employees’ performance was measured by the outcomes of their effort, by the behavioral characteristics that led to those outcomes, and not by how closely related they were with top management or by how long they have been working in the organization. Based on the findings, it was recommended among others, that management of private secondary schools in Port Harcourt should lay more emphasis on behavioral competences not just on only the outcome of employees’ effort.

  • The Impact of Tourists in Ecotourism Sites

    • Authors: Mohammad Nayef Alsarayreh
      Pages: 73 - 83
      Abstract: Ecotourism and environmental balance is a new phenomenon aimed to research, study and meditate in nature, flora and fauna and the provision of human comfort. Ecotourism is the only way to maximize the economic, environmental and social benefits of tourism.The main problem is represented in the difficulty of balancing the preservation of eco-tourism sites with the process of attracting tourists to eco-tourism sites.A number of hypotheses have been developed, the most important of which are: There is no statistically significant negative impact of tourist on tourist sites.The study concluded a number of results and the most important of these results is that the tourist has a negative impact on eco-tourism sites, represented by tourist's cutting trees, and dumping waste and dirt in streets which is an uncivilized act and harmful to the environment.The study has also shown that tourists influence the eco-tourism sites since eco-tourism requires an environmental awareness, and the tourist should be aware that the protection of touristic sites is mandatory for everyone. The tourist's awareness has a great role in preserving the environment, so the educated tourist is necessary to preserve the eco-tourism sites.The study has a set of recommendations, the most important of these recommendations:
      To increase the awareness of tourists about the importance of the environment and maintaining it by using leaflets that explain the importance of the environment for tourism,
      To intensify the penalties and legal procedures against the attacks on eco-tourism sites, and to modify laws and regulations in order to promote touristic services.

  • Designing and Marketing Features of International Airlines Websites: A
           Comparative Study

    • Authors: Reza Parsa, Omid Yaghmaei, Morteza Ansarimehr, Mohammad-Hosein Hoseini-Rivandi, Parisa Najafiolasli
      Pages: 136 - 151
      Abstract: This article is an attempt to analyze the websites of a number of international airlines by adopting the functionalism approach. For this, designing and marketing features of these websites are compared. According to the functionalist approach, every website should have at least one specific function. This analysis is conducted by employing 12-factor website analysis criteria put forward by Bowman, Johnson, and Hodges (2001). The findings suggest that the success of each website is considerably translated into the success of the respective airline and vice versa. This is because the number of visitors of the website is positively correlated to the rate of customers of the airline.

      Abstract: This study focused on assessing the effectiveness of innovation management in the hospitality industry. The inability of the change managers of these hotels to meet their expected organizational goals even as they strive to inject something new to meet the ever-rising demand of their clients made this study so essential. To achieve this objective, both primary and secondary data were employed. From a given population of 966, a sample size of 283 was derived using the Taro Yamane’s formula. A survey research design was also employed, and the study proved to be valid and reliable given a content validity and a Cronbach alpha of 0.863. The techniques adopted in analyzing the data were both the descriptive and inferential statistics. Spearman Rank Correlation Coefficient was used in testing the hypotheses. The result of the findings reveals that there is a significant association between the extent of innovation at a given period and the performance of the firms; innovation management does significantly correlate to the growth of the firms. Based on these findings, the researcher concluded that innovation management in the hospitality industry is effective. The researcher therefore recommends among others that there should be a concrete organizational arrangement to improve on the practice of innovation as often as possible in order to enhance the performance of the organizations and be effective.

      Abstract: Shopping streets at local city in Japan became old and are generally declining. In this paper, we handle the area rebirth and/or regional revitalization of shopping street. We focus on Fuji city in Japan. Four big festivals are held at Fuji city (two for Fuji Shopping Street and two for Yoshiwara Shopping Street). Many people visit these festivals including residents in that area. Therefore a questionnaire investigation to the residents and visitors is conducted during these periods in order to clarify residents and visitors’ needs for the shopping street, and utilize them to the plan building of the area rebirth and/or regional revitalization of shopping street. There is a big difference between Fuji Shopping Street and Yoshiwara Shopping Street. Therefore we focus Yoshiwara Shopping Street in this paper. These are analyzed by using Bayesian Network. The analysis utilizing Bayesian Network enabled us to visualize the causal relationship among items. Furthermore, sensitivity analysis brought us estimating and predicting the prospective visitors. Sensitivity analysis is performed by back propagation method. These are utilized for constructing a much more effective and useful plan building. We have obtained fruitful results. To confirm the findings by utilizing the new consecutive visiting records would be the future works to be investigated.

      Pages: 272 - 289
      Abstract: Business ethics has gained great interest due to rising trend of ethical misconducts around the world. While ethics has its impacts at personal, organizational and societal levels, it is regarded as a moral responsibility of various stakeholders including the leaders and also employees. Therefore, a leader is required to demonstrate an ethical leadership while employees should be given an avenue to voice out their ethical concerns as well. Employees may voice out their ethical concerns in the form of suggestion, problem or opinion while the leader should demonstrate their ethical practices through motive, influences and also moral character. In view of this, a theoretical framework is proposed by incorporating these dimensions supported by relevant literature for conceptualization of the research. Direction for future is also provided to validate and improve predictive value of the research model.
