Universally, they are viewed to be the most challenging although critical aspect of every labor management plans. This study sought to document the empirical and theoretical literature on employee recruitment practices, knowledge management, human capital, and organizational performance. The theories that guided this study included the Vrooms Expectancy theory, Human Capital theory, and Equity Theory. The study’s conceptual model comprises of employee recruitment practices and organizational performance as the independent and dependent variables respectively, while knowledge management and human capital were incorporated as mediating variables. This study reflects literature review research whose focus was a deeper analysis of the existing basic and factual publications on employee recruitment traditions and institutional outcomes. The study based on the observed theoretical linkages concluded that employee recruitment practices, theoretically influence organizational performance, while knowledge management theoretically mediates the association between employee recruitment practices and organizational performance. Further, the deduction from this presentation was that human capital theoretically moderates that association between employee recruitment traditions and institutional outcomes and that there is a joint theoretical relationship among employee recruitment practices, knowledge management, labor management and institutional outcomes. This study observed the little existence of theoretical and empirical literature on the joint linkage between employee recruitment practices, knowledge management, labor and institutional outcomes and recommended an empirical study to establish the existing relationship among the considered variables.

      Abstract: The sports footwear sector is a lucrative market, particularly among Generation Y consumers. The aim of this research is to determine the factors that influence the customer satisfaction level of sports footwear brands among South African Generation Y. The study used a quantitative research method and followed a descriptive research design. Six of the nine independent variables, namely brand association, perceived quality, style, comfort, brand name and price, were found to have a statistically significant impact on Generation Y consumers’ satisfaction levels with sports footwear brands, while three of the nine variables, namely brand image, colour and endorsement, produced an insignificant impact on customer satisfaction levels of the same age cohort. Marketers of the sports footwear brands that were not identified as favourite brands in the study are advised to evaluate their marketing strategies and manufacturing processes. Those sports brands identified as favoured brands by Generation Y customers are also encouraged to evaluate factors that were found insignificant in influencing customer satisfaction among Generation Y cohorts.

      Abstract: Technological advancements and environmental turbulences require firms to continuously reconfigure their operational models by rapidly transforming the workplace. This study explores how the Internet of Things (IoT) can improve employees’ productivity in operations. This conceptualization paper highlights five determinants of employee productivity: learning orientation, problem-solving, acquisition of knowledge, and monitoring and evaluation. The developed conceptual model has a three-phased approach to optimizing the impact of the internet of things with Bayesian classification. This is critical to effectively leverage improvement in employee productivity, profile deviation analysis and to predict the effectiveness of interventions. This study provides vital insights into leveraging the IoT during the fourth industrial revolution, offering the needed continuous development of employee productivity to help with the survival and stability of firms. This will assist the management of a firm by providing practical insights and an actionable approach towards fostering increased employee productivity during challenging times.The post Leveraging the Internet of Things to Enhance Employee Productivity in Operations: A Conceptualization appeared first on Expert Journal of Business and Management.

      Abstract: This paper evaluates the impacts of perceived despotic leadership (DL), quality of work-life (QWL), and innovative work behavior (IWB) on employee performance (EP) in Nigeria’s banks post-Covid-19. The sample for this study was obtained from five (5) banks in Lagos and Oyo States, Nigeria. These five (5) banks are Zenith Bank Plc, Guarantee Trust Bank Plc, First City Monument Bank Limited, United Bank for Africa Plc, and First Bank of Nigeria Plc. This study implemented a cross-sectional questionnaire method, and surveys were randomly distributed. Nevertheless, from the 400 surveys distributed, 388 were retrieved, concluded adequate for use, and analyzed using Statistical Packages for Social Sciences (SPSS version 28). This study indicated a substantial relationship between perceived DL, QWL, and innovative work behavior. It further stated the considerable individual and collective impact of perceived DL, QWL, and IWB on EP within Nigeria’s banks post-Covid-19. Leaders and managers of businesses are urged to examine and implement the most appropriate leadership styles for the varied circumstances, and companies are still battling challenges post-Covid-19. They should also consistently promote job clarity, job satisfaction, security, employee participation in decision-making, communication, and support. This increases employees’ QWL in the workplace. Further, the management should encourage innovative management exercises, which are fundamental in sustaining employee performance post-Covid-19.

      Abstract: The objective of this paper was to explore the sustainability of local economic development through entrepreneurship in South Africa. Local economic development (LED) should be the responsibility of everyone, including local people, business owners, and the government. LED is widely seen as the panacea to increased quality of life, unemployment, poverty, and inequalities, mainly in developing nations. LED research is a relatively new topic, and policy development, planning processes, and implementation plans are continually changing with numerous alternative ideas and techniques. The study acknowledged South Africa to be a resource-rich country with incredible development potential. South Africa, on the other hand, can do a lot better to encourage entrepreneurs and small and medium-scale businesses at the grassroots level, by preparing citizens with the needed skills to contribute to economic development because effective leadership, institutions, and entrepreneurship all play important roles. The study discovered that there is no “one-size-fits-all" development policy or approach, however, economic growth is a complicated interaction of many stakeholders’ perspectives on the local economy. The study believes that, in light of previous countries’ failures, new routes ahead for South Africa and Africa may be explored in the marketplace of innovative ideas.The post Re-Thinking the Sustainability of Local Economic Development through Entrepreneurship in South Africa appeared first on Expert Journal of Business and Management.

      Abstract: Entrepreneurship is one of the most important drivers in a country's economic growth in which it contributes to the reduction of unemployment rate. This explains why various institutions have been leveraging resources at their disposal to boost the entrepreneurial intention of students across the country. This research aims to investigate the effect of family environment and entrepreneurship education through entrepreneurial self-efficacy towards students’ entrepreneurial intention. This study took on a quantitative approach, where the data obtained from surveys are evaluated statistically using the SmartPLS software. The researcher has taken 215 samples from a population of 458 students in 2018 cohort, majoring in International Business Management of Universitas Ciputra Surabaya, using the simple random sampling method. The findings suggest that there is a positive and significant direct relationship between family environment and entrepreneurial intention, entrepreneurship education and entrepreneurial intention, family environment and entrepreneurial self-efficacy, entrepreneurship education and entrepreneurial self-efficacy, as well as entrepreneurial efficacy and entrepreneurial intention. Furthermore, the results show that entrepreneurial self-efficacy partially mediates the relationship between family environment and entrepreneurship variables towards entrepreneurial intention. This research contributes to the Social Cognitive Theory and implications are discussed.

      Abstract: Performance assessment is useful for employees in terms of providing information for promotion decision making, employee training, and violation sanctions. Managers can use the results of performance evaluation as strategies to motivate and improve employees’ performance. To implement performance assessments that can provide accurate information, an effective support system is needed. The phenomenon that occurs in the public sector is that employees consider performance assessments only as a formality, managers and employees do not understand how to fill out performance assessments and lack commitment to implement performance assessments. Based on these phenomena, the study aims to analyze the effectiveness of performance assessment systems by using a critical approach to performance assessment: performance system design, managerial system practice and system support. The research method used is of a qualitative descriptive nature that aimed to describe the effectiveness of a performance assessment system. Data is collected based on in-depth interviews. The results of the study show that the performance assessment system based on employee performance goals can be implemented properly if supported by annual performance documents structures, direct supervisor work planning, and employee job descriptions. Considering the critical assessment system component, the performance assessment system based on employee performance objectives has been effective in the implementation of system design, managerial practices, and sustainable system support. However, there is still one component that has not been implemented, namely the involvement of leaders and employees in the design of the assessment system.The post Effectiveness Analysis of the Employee Work Performance Assessment System – A Critical Three-Component Approach appeared first on Expert Journal of Business and Management.

      Abstract: Competition between schools requires many private schools to always innovate in learning. Teachers as the spearhead in the learning process in schools are highly expected by stakeholders to develop these innovative behaviors. Based on the teacher’s perspective, those who act as stakeholders are school leaders and also students or their parents as school customers. The purpose of this study is to examine the role of leader expectations and customer expectations on the innovative behavior of teachers in schools. The respondents of this study were 127 private school teachers on the island of Java – Indonesia which had many competing private schools. The results of the multiple regression test indicate that there is an effect of stakeholder expectations on teacher’s innovative behavior with an effective contribution of 25.4%. However, based on the results, it is actually only the customer expectation that plays a role in increasing the innovative behavior of teachers. The results of this study can be implemented by school management in providing more effective expectations and demands for increasing teacher’s innovative behaviorThe post Teachers’ Innovative Behaviors based on Stakeholder Expectations appeared first on Expert Journal of Business and Management.
