  • Can Workplace Fun Moderate Organizational Identification and Job
           Satisfaction Relationship

      Authors: Solomon Ozemoyah Ugheoke, Munir Shehu Mashi, Mohd Faizal Mohd Isa
      Abstract: Business Perspectives and Research, Ahead of Print.
      Job satisfaction is critical to the changing and growing challenges of the service sector. The present research study investigates the moderation effect of workplace fun on the relationship between organizational identification (OID) and job satisfaction. The sample was 220 frontline employees in 57 hotels in Nigeria. We found that OID positively influenced job satisfaction. Additionally, workplace fun moderated the effect of OID onjob satisfaction. The findings suggest that organizational leaders can use fun to generate favorable organizational outcomes. We also found that OID promotes workplace fun, which, in turn, results in high job satisfaction. The implication is that when employees feel a sense of oneness within an organization, they will effectively define their work roles and feel accountable for the decision. Organizations that want to inspire positive customer relation behaviors should encourage employees’ OID and implement friendly workplace practices. The study added twofold values to this research area. We explore OID and workplace fun. The study also explores the moderation effect of workplace fun on the relationship between OID and job satisfaction. Thus, managers can increase employee job satisfaction by encouraging workplace fun.

      Authors: Kuldeep Dhar, Utkal Khandelwal
      Abstract: Business Perspectives and Research, Ahead of Print.
      Companies prefer to have their warehouses run in each state before goods and services tax (GST), but after GST whole supply chain phenomenon have changed. The purpose of this study is to address the impact of GST and then see how it affects the wider supply chain management sector. For this conceptual model is adapted and modified from Porter’s value chain model in current GST context. Online convenience sampling survey of 519 respondents from Indian companies which comprised eight different subsectors has been conducted. Partial least square structural equation modeling technique has been used to analyze the data. Findings reveal the empirical significant impact of inbound logistics, supply chain operations and outbound logistics on productivity with GST scenario. In addition, results also established on the moderating role of GST environment on all these direct relationship. This study enriches the knowledge of supply chain operations with the arousal of new tax system GST in India. This research helps managers to understand this new tax system in a better way so that they can adopt this system for enhancing their business performance.

  • Comparing the Socioeconomic Development of G7 and BRICS Countries and
           Resilience to COVID-19: An Entropy–MARCOS Framework

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Sanjib Biswas, Shuvendu Majumder, Suman Kumar Dawn
      Abstract: Business Perspectives and Research, Ahead of Print.
      In this article, we aim to compare the socioeconomic development (SED) of the countries listed in G7 (representing developed nations) and BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa—developing countries). Further, we intend to delve into the nexus between the SED of a country and its resilience to the current pandemic, COVID-19. The initial apprehension is that a country with better SED can show better resilience. To test this assumption, we consider seven socioeconomic indicators representing income, employment status, educational level, health condition, government expenditures in essential areas, like health, research and development, and gender equality and apply a compromise solution–based multi-criteria decision analysis (MCDA) framework. Next, we consider three parameters, namely infected cases (IC), recovery rate (RR), and death rate (DR), as explanatory proxy variables to indicate the resilience of the countries to COVID-19 spread. Finally, we examine the association between the SED and resilience of the countries. The results show that the SED of a country does not lead to better resilience to COVID-19.

      Globally, the demand for temporary workers is rising across organizations and sectors, driven by benefits of lower cost and workforce flexibility. Flexibility for organizations, however, means job insecurity for the temporary worker. This study focuses on understanding how the Indian IT sector’s temporary agency workers (TAWs), that is, temporary workers recruited by staffing agencies to work with client organizations, cope with their job insecurity. Grounded theory-based analysis of 36 interviews revealed that TAWs rely on enhancing their employability as the primary strategy to combat job insecurity. In addition, to enhance employability, TAWs make proactive efforts to perform consistently and upskill continuously. TAWs also expect support, largely in the form of learning and development opportunities, from the staffing agency and client to augment employability. The findings and recommendations in this article to help TAWs improve employability hold significance for TAWs, staffing agencies as well as clients. With enhanced employability, TAWs overcome job insecurity—an impediment to job performance, which is of direct relevance to the worker and the client—and also affects the staffing agency’s long-term relationship with the client.

      Abstract: Business Perspectives and Research, Ahead of Print.
      The research examines the optimization of fleet management of a shipping company through control algorithms, as finding an algorithm that will reduce a marine company’s exposure to risk by diversifying its fleet composition is one way to make it dominant. The study focused on three companies that, in 2014, invested US$$1 billion in a fleet of tankers, using three different techniques to optimize their fleet composition: equal number of ships of all types, the established risk minimization model and the proposed Risky Asset Pricing maximization model. Seven years of data was used for the synthesis and 4 years of data was used for the evaluation. The research findings show that classic portfolio management through risk minimization is ineffective, as it appears to reduce performance below what is a random or evenly distributed fleet. Comparing the three methods, the superiority of the Risky Asset Pricing model is clear. This algorithm looks for solutions where the demand for ships is low but has enormous fluctuation potential and seeks to identify ships that are at high risk with great potential for price increases to maximize investor returns. The value of the research lies in the identification of methods to optimize capital distribution and composition of a shipping company fleet, which presents valuable insights for the benefit of scholars and maritime companies. Moreover, and contrary to extant works that focus on Markowitz’s theory, this article instead describes how evolutionary algorithms can be used to optimize fleet management.

      Authors: Milad Farzin, Rahman Ghaffari, Majid Fattahi
      Abstract: Business Perspectives and Research, Ahead of Print.
      Social network sites (SNSs) are an online platform which people apply to make social bonds or social relationship with their peers who share the same career or personal interests, activities, contexts or real-life relationships. The present research explores the features of SNSs that have a bearing on consumer purchase behavior in the Iranian context. The research constructs were measured, profiting from the existing marketing and social psychology theories. The research sample was selected for the college students using simple random sampling. For the test of the research hypotheses, the structural equation modeling technique was applied in SmartPLS software. The results indicated that the SNSs associated features such as reduced perceived risk and consumer trust influenced their purchase intention in such virtual contexts. In addition, usability, dependency, and involvement were variables that affected the level of trust of consumers and their perceived risk in SNSs. Moreover, designers of such platforms can enhance the usability of the platform by upgrading openness, accessibility, and speed. This study by creating a better understanding of consumer online shopping behavior in SNSs contributes to the marketing literature. This insight could be used by marketers and advertisers in the formulation and implementation of effective and coherent marketing and advertising strategies.

      Authors: Smita Mukherjee, Zubin R. Mulla
      Abstract: Business Perspectives and Research, Ahead of Print.
      We examine the cost of leaders changing between empowering and directive leadership styles on team outcomes. In a laboratory experiment, we collected data from 240 participants in 80 teams. Confederates enacted different leadership styles and led teams of participants in performing a series of tasks. When leaders changed their style from directive to empowering, teams took time to respond in terms of higher satisfaction with leader and affective commitment. However, when leaders changed their style from empowering to directive, the deterioration of satisfaction with leader and reduction in affective commitment were immediate. Moreover, teams of leaders who had been consistently directive showed higher affective commitment as compared to teams of leaders who had a history of being empowering but later shifted to being directive. First time managers can get inputs on how they should enact their leadership style and be aware that switching between styles may impose long-term costs on the team’s affective commitment and satisfaction with the leader.

      Authors: Md. Rahat Khan, Sudhir Rana, Md. Imran Hosen
      Abstract: Business Perspectives and Research, Ahead of Print.
      The objective of this study is to find out the impact of trustworthiness on the usage of mobile banking (M-banking) apps in the capital city of Bangladesh. A structured questionnaire was distributed using the snowball sampling technique. Confirmatory factor analyses and structural equation modeling (using SPSS Statistics 20.0 and AMOS 26.0) were used on 362 responses found suitable for the study. The analytical results reveal that all three components of trustworthiness (ability, benevolence, and integrity) have a positive impact on M-banking app usage. Although banks have realized the importance of consumer convenience, they struggle to create trustworthiness. Thus, this study showcases that this positive trustworthiness amongst M-banking app users would be helpful in enhancing the usage of apps.

      Authors: Meher Shiva Tadepalli, Ravi Kumar Jain, and Bhimaraya A. Metri
      Abstract: Business Perspectives and Research, Ahead of Print.
      Asset pricing in capital markets is a strikingly vibrant area of academic research and is considered as an indicator to evaluate the efficiency of stock markets. Though the explanation for the seasonal behavior of capital markets was attempted by various market models, several anomalies were observed historically. Calendar anomalies that belong to the specific class of seasonal anomalies provided abnormal returns in the global stock markets at regular intervals within and across various calendar years. This article documents the study on one such anomaly—namely, the turn-of-the-month effect in the context of Indian stock indices. In this pursuit, exhaustive research has been carried out considering all the broad-market and sectoral indices of two major stock exchanges, namely, National Stock Exchange and the Bombay Stock Exchange. The study used the ARIMAX methodology with dummy exogenous variables (to represent the turn-of-the-month days) and presented comprehensive findings and learnings. Besides, this article attempts to analyze the changes in the strength and significance of the anomaly in progression with various stock market reforms in both the broad-market and sectoral indices to provide new insights into the efficiency of Indian stock market exchanges.

      Authors: Chandan A. Chavadi, Monika Sirothiya, Vishwanatha M R
      Abstract: Business Perspectives and Research, Ahead of Print.
      The millennials have become the largest cohort in the workforce, and their retention has become challenging for policymakers and organizations. Millennials are career-oriented and are ready to switch jobs if there is a mismatch in skills and job requirement. The purpose of this study is to investigate the mediating role of job satisfaction on turnover intention and job mismatch among millennial employees in Bengaluru. The study consists of 247 millennial employees from different industries of Bengaluru. Statistical tools such as SPSS 20, AMOS 20, and Sobel-Z test have been used for analysis. It is found from our research study that job mismatch is having a positive relationship with turnover intention, while job satisfaction is having a negative relationship with turnover intention. The relation between job mismatch and job satisfaction is negative. The findings demonstrated that job satisfaction partially mediated the relationships between job mismatch and turnover intentions. It was concluded from the study that millennials consider personal growth as the major factor, which influences their job satisfaction. This study is of practical importance as it impacts organizational practices (specifically human resource management practices).

      Authors: Najameddin Sadeg Tumi, Ali Nawari Hasan, Jamshed Khalid
      Abstract: Business Perspectives and Research, Ahead of Print.
      Motivation is the process of increasing employee commitment and it is considered one of the key fundamentals, which are essential for organizational success. In a globalized working environment, implementing an effective compensation system, job enrichment, and enlargement, and appropriate training are some of the critical challenges facing by organizations to keep motivated their employees. Thus, the present study aims to investigate possible influencing factors such as compensation, job enrichment and enlargement, training, and their effects on employee motivation in the telecommunication sector in Libya. The findings revealed that all investigative factors have significant relationships with employee motivation. This study suggests that telecommunication companies should formulate an appropriate compensation system comprising of monetary and non-monetary rewards, provide job training to enhance knowledge and skills, as well as offer job enrichment and enlargement opportunities for the employees to expand their motivation and therefore result in organizational success. The limitations of the study and future research recommendations are addressed at the end.

  • Earnings Management and IPO Anomalies—Evidence from Indian Stock
           Market

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Aprajita Pandey, J. K. Pattanayak
      Abstract: Business Perspectives and Research, Ahead of Print.
      This study examines the relationship between the extent of earnings management in a firm, the level of underpricing during an initial public offering (IPO), and their long-term performance. Earnings management has been acknowledged as a matter of concern during IPOs since long; however, its relationship with underpricing and long-term returns remained inconclusive in emerging markets like India. Using a sample of Indian IPO firms, this study finds that firms that manage accruals aggressively in the pre-IPO period have high initial returns and subsequently low stock returns in the post-IPO period. This study also observed that firms that have used abnormal accruals more conservatively while reporting earnings have better returns in the third year after IPO compared to the firms that reported more aggressively. The results are in consonance with the theory of information asymmetry and suggest that valuation of an IPO firm becomes ambiguous with high level of earnings management, which leads to higher underpricing.

      Abstract: Business Perspectives and Research, Ahead of Print.
      Wine-related festivals and events have emerged as a unique tourism product bringing not only economic value but also enhancing the brand image of a destination. China being the third largest wine-consuming country in the world has been organizing wine and food focused festivals which are participated by the residents as well as international visitors. Considering the size and scope of these events in China, this study explores the motivation behind participation in the wine festivals and investigates the influence of motivation factors on the perception of festivalscape, satisfaction, and behavioral intentions. The constructs of the study were framed after a thorough review of the literature. The findings of the study revealed that while primary and secondary motivations have a positive effect on the perception of food and wine, generic features, and fun; only primary motivation has a positive effect on satisfaction, whereas secondary motivation has a negative effect on satisfaction. It was also found that the perception of wine & food and fun has a positive impact on satisfaction, while the perception of generic features has no effect on satisfaction. The behavioral intentions were also found to be positively affected by satisfaction.

      Authors: Jalal Rajeh Hanaysha
      Abstract: Business Perspectives and Research, Ahead of Print.
      The purpose of this article was to test the effects of social media marketing, corporate social responsibility, and price promotion on word of mouth in the fast-food industry. Only a few scholars tested the mutual effect of the selected factors on word of mouth for global fast-food brands, mainly in the Asian region. The data were gathered from several fast-food restaurants’ visitors at different spots in east coast Malaysia through a survey tool. All of the filled questionnaires were analyzed using partial least square method. The analysis revealed that corporate social responsibility and social media marketing have a significant positive impact on consumers’ word of mouth. The findings also established that price promotion has a significant positive impact on word of mouth. These results enrich our understandings with regards to the importance of these marketing strategies in shaping word of mouth for fast-food restaurants in Malaysia.

  • Gendering Products Through Advertisements: A Review (1973–2019) of
           Various Cues Employed by Advertisers

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Namrata Sandhu
      Abstract: Business Perspectives and Research, Ahead of Print.
      Throughout history, people have used consumption props to adorn their gender. The products that individuals own and use are noticeable markers of their gender identity. This explains the sustained interest of advertisers in gender-typing products. Advertisers’ gender work is instrumental in establishing a gender order among products. By virtue of the gender meanings assigned by advertisers, products occupy spaces on the gender map. Advertisers employ various cues to operationalize the gender direction of the advertised products. A review of over four decades of research (1973–2019) on gender and advertising reveals that there are at least 22 different ways in which advertisers achieve gender polarization of products. This explanatory synthesis convenes these cues in the context of television and multimedia web-based and print advertisements. The methodology used also allows for classification of these cues. This review has definite theoretical and practical implications that justify the need for this research. The final output of this article displays the research landscape of the present topic and contributes to the existing advertising literature by offering a repository of objective tools used to shape the gender content of advertisements. It is the author’s belief that this article will help researchers conceptualize different product gendering techniques employed by advertisers and encourage further research in this area. From a practical perspective, advertisers looking to activate the gender schema in advertisements with a view to selectively target a particular gender may benefit from the results of this study.

           Evidence from Japan’s Telecommunications Services Industry

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Mostafa Saidur Rahim Khan, Naheed Rabbani
      Abstract: Business Perspectives and Research, Ahead of Print.
      This study examines the growth potential of the market leader and market challenger in Japan’s telecommunications services industry. We focus on Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation (NTT) and KDDI, the market leader and challenger (respectively) in terms of sales revenue, total assets, and market share. Following finance literatures, we use higher values of price–earnings ratio (P/E) and market-to-book-value-of-equity ratio (MV/BV) as the indicators of growth potential. High growth firms have the potential to outperform the overall market over a significant period of time providing a good investment opportunity for retail and institutional investors. This study uses financial data of the NTT and KDDI from the period between 2001 and 2016 and applies several regression models to examine the growth potential of the market leader and market challenger in Japan’s telecommunications services industry. Using the P/E and MV/BV as indicators of growth potential, we show that the market challenger’s growth potential is significantly higher than that of the market leader, even after controlling for firm size, liquidity, profitability, leverage, cash flow, and age.

  • Psychological Contract for Human Development and Organizational
           Sustainability

      Authors: Indu Rao
      Abstract: Business Perspectives and Research, Ahead of Print.
      Organizations can sustain different efforts toward human development, and employee–employer relationships can sustain the organizations to work toward their purpose. However, contemporary organizations are facing unprecedented challenges as a result of COVID-19, intensified globalization, increasingly diversified workforce, and continuous technological advancements, thereby impacting the way businesses and people are managed. Most of the work has transitioned to online, and employees are working from home due to pandemic situations. Organizations need to manage the emerging, complex employee–employer relationships in this new order of the world for the purpose of human development as well as organizational sustainability. In the absence of frequent employee–employer meetings at physical workplaces and the transition of the workspace into virtual workstations, we need to look at new ways of initiating and sustaining employee–employer relationships. In this conceptual article, we propose that different types of psychological contracts, like relational and transactional contracts, can contribute to these goals. Through a conceptual analysis of relevant literature, we first examine different aspects of the psychological contract—its types, antecedents, and consequences of different types of contract on organizations. Sustainable human development is related to organizational sustainability. We propose that a relational psychological contract may help in sustainable human development as well as organizational sustainability, whereas a transactional psychological contract moderates the relationship between sustainable human development and organizational sustainability.

  • Corporate Social Responsibility Measures: A Brief Review

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Akanksha Shukla, Geetika, Nimesh Shukla
      Abstract: Business Perspectives and Research, Ahead of Print.
      Studies are being conducted to measure the impact of corporate social responsibility (CSR) on different dimensions of performance of the firm. Therefore, it becomes imperative to measure CSR activities undertaken by the firms. The measures used to assess CSR range from quantitative to perceptual; hence, the study proposes to present an analytical profile of various methods used to measure CSR. The article reviews studies that span over the time period from the 1980s to 2016 to determine the relationship between CSR and performance of the firm. Various measures of CSR used in studies are broadly categorized as rating-based measures, financial measures, perceptual measures, and disclosure-based measures.The study revealed that perceptual and rating-based measures are the most commonly used measures. Also, it has been found that the operationalization of CSR using these two measures has been used in the studies that are conducted mainly in developed countries. However, disclosure of CSR and expenditure made on social responsibility can be more comprehensive measures as they are more objective in nature and are not influenced by the biases. Also, expenditure on CSR can be a useful measure while conducting a cost-benefit analysis of CSR activities performed by the organizations.

      Authors: Solomon Ozemoyah Ugheoke
      Abstract: Business Perspectives and Research, Ahead of Print.
      Managerial role and organizational performance has long been highlighted by previous researchers, but majority of the researches was conducted in developed economies. Relatively small firms in developing economies are under research as the legal institutional framework and strategic markets are not well developed. Our aim is to examine how managers influence high performance achievement among small firms, and how their role is being strengthened by organizational culture. A sample of 250 managers in small- and medium-scale enterprises (SMEs) was used. The hypothesis was tested through multiple and hierarchical regression analysis. Result showed that managerial role has direct and indirect influence on high performance achievement among small firms. The study recommended that managerial practical knowledge or skills has a stronger influence on high performance achievement if the institutional environments of small firms permit managers to explore the resources generated by their experience and skills. This suggests that managerial resources alone cannot contribute to high performance achievement without strong and supportive organizational culture. SMEs should focus on building market related competitive capability in an effort to capture the emerging market prospects in these economies.

      Authors: George Kofi Amoako
      Abstract: Business Perspectives and Research, Ahead of Print.
      The purpose of this research study is to investigate the relationship between distribution intensity and purchase behavior of customers in the downstream petroleum industry in Ghana mediated by brand equity. Brand equity components are brand perceived quality, brand awareness, brand association, and brand loyalty. The study revealed that there is a positive relationship between distribution intensity and purchase behavior through brand equity. Structural equation modelling was used to investigate the relationship among channel location, store availability (distribution intensity), and brand equity (brand loyalty, perceived quality, brand association and brand awareness) and purchase behavior. The study revealed that brand equity mediates the relationship between distribution intensity and purchase behavior in the oil marketing companies (OMCs) in Ghana. This study extends the applicability of brand equity as a mediating variable to enhance the impact of location and service mart availability on purchasing behavior of customers. Additionally, this study provides an in-depth understanding of how the various components of brand equity of OMCs brands contribute to drive consumption experience and continual usage of OMC channels in Ghana. This study is based on a cross-sectional design, and since user behavior may change over time, a longitudinal study will be useful in the future.

      Authors: Rasheda Akter Rupa, Abu Naser Mohammad Saif
      Abstract: Business Perspectives and Research, Ahead of Print.
      In this Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR), sustainable development for business firms depends on maintaining sustained performance and environmental sustainability to a great extent. The current study discovers the impact of green supply chain management (GSCM) practices on business performance and the environmental sustainability of a developing country, Bangladesh. Cost and profit are the two important indicators of business performance. On the other hand, environmental sustainability is expressed by waste disposal, resource consumption, and greenhouse gas emission. Primary data were collected through the distribution of web links and direct interaction with the participants of different firms practicing GSCM practices in Bangladesh. A structured questionnaire was used for data collection. Hypotheses were formulated and evaluated accordingly. This study found that the impact of implementation of GSCM practices differs with respect to cost, profit, waste disposal, resource consumption, and greenhouse gas emission. GSCM practices have a statistically significant impact on cost, waste disposal, resource consumption, and greenhouse gas emission. The impact of GSCM practices on profit was statistically insignificant. It was found that lack of IT implementation, high cost of waste disposal, uncertainty and competition in the market, resistance to change, and lack of top management support are the major barriers to implement GSCM practices in Bangladesh.

      Authors: Debarun Chakraborty, Wendrila Biswas
      Abstract: Business Perspectives and Research, Ahead of Print.
      The study aims to explore the impact of the strategic human resource management practices on organizational climate and organizational performance. The study used simple random sampling technique, and 387 responses have been collected finally. The primary data have been collected from professionals/managers of different manufacturing units from five divisions of West Bengal, namely Burdwan, Medinipur, Malda, Presidency and Jalpaiguri. Compensation management, employee relation and human resource planning (HRP) have positive and significant impact toward organizational climate where compensation management has greater impact compared to other factors toward organizational climate. Performance management, training and development, and recruitments and selection have negative and nonsignificant impact toward organizational climate. The study implies that proper compensation, good relationship with employees, and proper planning of human resources can improve the organizational climate, which also improves the organizational performance. The study is original as no such research has been conducted in the Indian context earlier.
