    • Authors: Bishwash Raj Poudel
      Pages: 1 - 17
      Abstract: IT adoption is more than just technology deployment; it requires careful consideration of social-cognitive factors. With this premise, in this paper, the behavioral intention of job seekers to use online recruitment services in Nepalese context has been examined on the basis of five determinants: Performance expectancy, Effort expectancy, Subjective Norms, Objective Norms and Facilitating conditions. The impact of predictor on outcome variable is examined using multiple regression analysis. The unified theory of acceptance and use of technology (UTAUT) has been used as basic foundation of the study.

  • A Conceptual Review On Strategic Human Resources Management And Planning
           In Non Profit Motive Organization

    • Authors: Gyanendra Bikram Shah
      Pages: 18 - 26
      Abstract: The nonprofit and public sectors are facing significant numbers of impending retirements from the traditionalists and baby boomers in their workforces. In an effort to retain the knowledge base of an agency or to better serve its clients, some organizations have developed creative ways to encourage retirement-eligible employees to remain on the job. Public and nonprofit organizations are driven by the knowledge and skills their employees possess. It is shortsighted for elected officials, board members, funders, executives, and other agency leaders to dismiss the importance of SHRM. As important, organizations must reinforce the importance of human capital and the contribution that knowledge management makes to the effective delivery of services.

  • Impact of Educational Intervention in Knowledge of Infection Prevention
           and Control among healthcare professionals in Nepal

    • Authors: Sait Kumar Pradhan, Sweta Shrestha
      Pages: 126 - 131
      Abstract: Background: Health care-associated infection (HCAI) affects the mortality and morbidity of inpatients worldwide. Nepal is a developing country in which HCAI pose a major problem in terms of patient safety. Improper and inadequate knowledge about HCAI among health care workers is responsible for majority of nosocomial infections resulting in prolonged illness. Thus this study was designed to assess the level of knowledge of infection control among nurses and pharmacists. Methods: A pre and post interventional study was conducted in 22 participants using a self-administered questionnaire which included queries on hand hygiene strategies, cross contamination sources and aseptic services. Each correct answer was scored as 1 and an incorrect answer was scored as zero. The total score for each individual was calculated before and after the intervention which was compared using the Paired t test at 95% confidence interval. Result: 81.8% of the participants possessed a good knowledge on infection prevention and control practices which increased to 100% after intervention. The difference in knowledge score before and after the workshop was found to be statistically significant (p=0.034). Previous training and duration of work experience was found to be correlated with the knowledge score whereas the other independent variables had no association with the knowledge score. Conclusion: Educational intervention has a positive impact in the knowledge level of the healthcare professionals in infection and prevention control.

    • Authors: Tika Sapkota
      Pages: 132 - 146
      Abstract: The problem of child labour, as faced by the developing economics today, has indeed taken on serious dimensions. The exploitative socio-economic structures resulting in the marginalization of the poor have left them with no option but compel them to adopt child labour as a survival strategy. In the study, efforts are made to understand the societal facts about child labour and the root causes of the problem in the context of the socio-economic dynamics prevailing in the country. Child labour is a serious and wide spread problem in Nepal. Hotel, teashop and restaurant work are the most visible and hazardous forms of child labour, which is mostly common in the urban areas of Nepal. Moreover, they are among the most neglected, abused and exploited segments of the population. The study gathered information on hotel, child laborers socio-economic condition, their working condition, root cause of being laborers and problems faced by them. The child laborers come from almost all parts of the country and they are from different castes and ethnic groups. The majority of children are of age group with the average age being 14.5 years.
