  • The Role of Perceived Stress as a Moderator on the Relationship between
           Organizational Trust and Work Engagement in Palestinian Ministries: An
           Empirical Approach

    • Authors: Tariq T. Jarrar, Hazril Izwar Ibrahim
      Pages: 1 - 16
      Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to employ Social Exchange Theory to examine the relationship between organizational trust and work engagement and the role of perceived stress as a moderator in Palestinian ministries. For this purpose, the study utilizes a sample of 178 respondents of executive-level employees in which primary data collection is conducted using survey instrument and PLS-SEM for data analysis. The study proposes that perceived stress moderates the impact of organizational trust on vigor, dedication and absorption, and that perceived stress plays an important role in moderating the relationship between organizational trust and employees' work engagement. The study concludes that implementation of organizational trust is important in Palestinian ministries to support employees’ engagement and to create positive outcome in the workplace.

  • Exploring the Challenges Faced by Working Mothers and the Perceived
           Factors to Retain them in the Private Education Sector

    • Authors: Hasani De Ravindranath, Jugindar Singh Kartar Singh, Thilageswary Arumugam, Janitha Kularajasingam
      Pages: 17 - 37
      Abstract: The purpose of this exploratory study was to explore the challenges faced by working mothers in the education sector and the perceived policies and strategies to retain them in their current jobs. This basic qualitative study used in-depth semi-structured interviews to collect information from five working mothers with at least one child.  Thematic analysis was done to analyse the data manually. The key challenges highlighted include work-life conflict, stereotyping, exhaustion, changing work schedule and career growth opportunities.  The working mothers also stated that the key perceived policies and strategies to retain them include child-care support, working from home and flexible work arrangements. Generally, they stated that motherhood was their key priority, and they prioritised family overwork. The study provided an understanding to organisations on the challenges faced by working mothers and what policies organisations should focus on to retain them. This study was the first of its kind, and it provided in-depth experience and views of working mothers in the education sector. This paper makes contributions to work-life integration and career theory.

  • Impact of Flexible Working Arrangements in the Public Sector in Indonesia

    • Authors: Andi Aisyah Nurul Alifyanti Hidayah, Jugindar Singh Kartar Singh, Ibiwani Alisa Hussain
      Pages: 38 - 57
      Abstract: The aim of this article is to examine the impact of flexible working arrangements in the public sector in Indonesia. From a theoretical perspective, this study examines the influence of flexible working arrangements on work-life conflict, work pressure, and organizational commitment. The focus is on employees engaged in the public sector in Indonesia as it regards this as a gap in current research. Most past studies on flexible working arrangements concentrate on large corporations in developed countries. There is a dearth of studies on the impact of flexible working arrangements on employee work-related outcomes in the public sector in Indonesia. In addition, empirical evidence concerning the association between flexible working arrangements and employee outcomes such as work-family conflict and organizational commitment shows inconsistent and mixed results. This was a quantitative study that used a survey method to collect data from 400 respondents. Descriptive and inferential statistics were generated using the SPSS software. The result showed that only organizational commitment was significantly correlated with flexible working arrangements. Work-family conflict and work pressure did not show a significant association with flexible work arrangements. This deviation from past studies could be attributed to cultural differences and policies in the public sector. This study provided new insights to organizations and human resource managers on the effect of the outcomes of flexible working arrangements. The findings revealed in this study are unique, and they provide support for the theory that flexible working conditions lead to increased organizational commitment. In terms of originality, past literature on flexible working arrangements mainly concentrates on large corporations or the private sector. With the growing importance of flexible working arrangements, there is a need to focus on the public sector.

  • Organisation Justice Towards’ Employees Voluntary Turnover: A
           Perspective of SMEs in Malaysia

    • Authors: Alvin Chong, Ibiwani Alisa Hussain, Noraini Ahmad, Jugindar Singh Kartar Singh
      Pages: 58 - 70
      Abstract: Turnover of employees has gained the attention of organisations due to the impact of human resources on organisation performance and competitive advantage. This dilemma leads the management to struggle to find ways and retain employees. To attract, organisations use the "pull factors" to entice employees to perform better in the organisation. This study was conducted to investigate the relationship between the three dimensions of organisational justice: distributive, procedural and interactional justice towards voluntary turnover. This was an explanatory study that used a quantitative research design. Through a survey method, data was collected from a total of 115 respondents. The findings revealed that there was a significant relationship between employee turnover, distributive justice, procedural justice, and interactional justice. However, interactional justice had the strongest impact. This study also unearthed that attractive compensation is not the only method for the management to retain talent in organisations. Organisational justice plays an essential role in the retention of employees. These results will provide a better understanding of supervisors and human resource professionals with additional insights into the impact of organisational justice on employees' turnover. This study indicates that organisations' interactional justice practised is considered a central factor for employee retention. Although prior research has investigated a number of these issues, this study was the first to focus on employees in Small and Medium Enterprises in Malaysia.

  • Exploring the Importance of Changing the Culture Within Healthcare Towards
           the Underreporting of Medical Errors: A Systematic Review

    • Authors: Lyndon Garvin Augustine
      Pages: 71 - 83
      Abstract: The ethical dilemma for the healthcare industry is that although they strive to keep patients safe, the culture reflects an underreporting of medical errors. Because of this, healthcare leaders have strived relentlessly to create a positive patient safety culture. A positive patient safety culture alludes to traits within a company that permit patient safety to be a goal, including open reporting, a no blame environment to incident reporting, dedicated leadership, continuous companywide learning, and a take charge recognition of safety warnings.
      Despite the efforts to create this type of safety culture, based on findings within this study, the conclusion is that leaders within the healthcare community have failed to foster this form of culture. Because of this, the objective of this study was to explore the importance of changing the culture within healthcare towards the underreporting of medical errors. In terms of methodology used to explore a culture change, the researcher performed a literature review. As for the results towards addressing a culture change, the researcher identified three barriers. Thereafter, the researcher provided resolutions to overcome these barriers.

  • Learning Disabilities of Legal Trainees- Pre-Admission Tests and
           Students’ Performance- Case Study of ZCAS University

    • Authors: Douglas Rolls, Kwesi Atta Sakyi, Geoffrey K. Mweshi
      Pages: 84 - 136
      Abstract: Even though students with eidetic or photographic memories are naturally found in universities, it is not necessary that all the students be of the same super endowment. However, in the university setting, we need students who have stability in all faculties so that the learning process is maximised through constructive and interactive instruction. Issues in education can neither be divorced from the fact-value dichotomy nor from the nature-nurture imperatives that affect and determine educational outcomes. In this regard, neither can some issues escape some element of subjectivity nor others be strictly measured and assessed by scientific strictures. The objective of this paper is to examine some of the learning disabilities among our law students at ZCAS University, and how these affect their academic performance. We settled on this topic after noting that some of our students do not perform well because of many learning disabilities which could be hidden from our view and which should have been diagnosed during the pre-admission period; and also diagnosed through pre-admission tests. Our objective was to establish some of the underlying causes of their poor performance during tests and final year examinations. In this paper, we theoretically explore learning disabilities related to mental, physical, social, emotional, and spiritual aspects of the well-being of our students. The research took the form of administering questionnaires to the relevant students through purposive sampling. With regard to the methodological approach, we adopted an exploratory approach by using descriptive, quantitative and analytical qualitative methods such as content and thematic analysis. We found out that some students came to the university not because they had academic strength and aptitude in the field of law but because they could afford to pay for the programme. We also found out that some of the students admitted to the university had poor learning styles and habits such as spending too much time online with friends. Furthermore, it came to light that some lecturers did not deliver lectures to suit the learning styles and preferences of students. Our findings were not conclusive enough as similar tests have to be carried out in future in different places to validate and corroborate our findings.

           An Empirical Evidence of Citibank in Greece

    • Authors: Stavros Kalogiannidis, Stamatis Kontsas
      Pages: 137 - 150
      Abstract: The aim of this research was to assess the impact of business communication on business profitability using Citibank Greece as the case study. Communication has been for a long time a great tool of improved performance in organizations because it contributes in bridging the gap between the organstaion and its different stakeholders. However, little focus is normally given on how communication influences profitability of different businesses. Therefore, the aim of this study was to determine the link between business communication and business profitability by employing literature and contextual based research instrument. The research was conducted as a descriptive survey from where data were collected using an online survey questionnaire. The analysis of data was conducted using various expository statistical methods of analysis. Finally, the obtained results strongly suggest that effective communication in business has an obvious and indisputable influence on business profitability and performance.

  • Impact of Perceived Academic Advisor Support on Academic Motivation

    • Authors: Li Sun, Ning Cheng
      Pages: 168 - 184
      Abstract: Improving the credit system is a new requirement of the Ministry of Education of China. The academic advisor system is an essential part of the credit system management and plays an important role in the planning and guidance of students’ academic career. Therefore, this paper studies the influence of students’ perception of academic advisor support on academic motivation. It surveyed 455 undergraduates from universities and colleges in Henan Province that implemented the academic advisor system, and found that students have a high degree of academic motivation. The main results of the research are as follows: 1) Freshmen’s perception of academic advisor support is higher than that of senior students; 2) Perceived autonomy support and engagement support have a significantly positive impact on intrinsic academic motivation; 3) Perceived opportunity support has a significantly positive impact on extrinsic academic motivation; 4) Perceived relationships support has a significant negative impact on amotivation. This research can help higher education workers to value student autonomy in learning, actively communicate with students, and provide resource support for the realization of student goals.
