  • Financial Inclusion Through Banking for the Poor: A Study on Cycle
           Rickshaw Pullers in West Bengal

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Sudarshan Maity, Tarak Nath Sahu, Debasish Biswas
      Abstract: Management and Labour Studies, Ahead of Print.
      Financial services actively contribute to the economic development of society. This leads to social safety that protects people from economic shocks. The present study seeks to ascertain whether cycle rickshaw pullers of West Bengal have bank accounts and to also investigate if bank account awareness among cycle rickshaw pullers are affected by different socio-economic factors. The study has been conducted on 170 rickshaw pullers who belong to the poor and marginalized sections of society. The study uses logistic regression to estimate important factors that influence the opening of a bank account. The goodness of fit of the model is checked in terms of the Hosmer–Lemeshow test. A large percentage of this group of rickshaw pullers is excluded from banking services. Among the 10 explanatory variables, the study finds that the number of years pulling cycle rickshaws, the monthly income and social participation are the factors that significantly influence the opening of a bank account. It has been observed that the respondents have meager incomes, low levels of health care and personal well-being, lives entrapped in poverty and are, on the whole, excluded from the mainstream. To include them in the mainstream financial services, the study suggests valid recommendations to draw the attention of the regulators and banks towards financial inclusion.JEL Codes: G21, G29

  • Can Indian Independent Directors Ever be Independent'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Rajat Deb, Devi Baruah
      Abstract: Management and Labour Studies, Ahead of Print.
      The current study has attempted to assess whether the Indian independent directors are, in a true sense, independent. Extant Corporate Governance literature has postulated that independent directors protect non-controlling minority shareholders, and defend their interests by lending their expertise to strategy. In practice, they seldom reject any strategy proposed by the executive directors who represent the dominant shareholders’ viewpoints. Thus, the independent directors perform advisory roles rather than supervisory roles. The study has assayed that independent directors must cease being subservient to the executive directors and has concluded that mere regulatory changes are insufficient; motivational changes must also accrue to the cause.JEL Classification: G34, G38

  • Compliance Behaviour Amidst Ambiguous Information: An Exploratory Study in
           the Context of COVID-19

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Divya Aggarwal, Subramania Raju Rajasulochana, Varun Elembilassery
      Abstract: Management and Labour Studies, Ahead of Print.
      COVID-19 pandemic is an ambiguous situation due to the uncertainty associated with the outcome of the situation. This article aims at exploring the knowledge behaviour gap during a pandemic like COVID-19. The findings of this study indicate that individuals perceive different forms of ambiguity in different ways. Findings also suggest that, during a pandemic, attitude towards ambiguity and confidence in self-health significantly impact compliance behaviour. Interestingly, the findings also indicate that knowledge and perception about the context are not significantly associated with compliance behaviour. This study is one of the earliest attempts to understand the knowledge behaviour gap during a pandemic and contributes to the research literature by attempting a cross-fertilization of concepts from different streams of literature. This study also discusses the practical implications for the health sector, in particular health communication.JEL codes: C9, D10, D81, D90

      Authors: Santanu Gupta
      Abstract: Management and Labour Studies, Ahead of Print.
      I explain how the concept of profit maximization and its link with elasticity can be done without recourse to calculus for the benefit of students with non-mathematical backgrounds. In the time of the ongoing pandemic, I tried teaching methods that bring the advantages of off-line teaching to online mode, namely extensive use of blackboard, the use of WhatsApp for receiving solutions of students in class, and the use of an extra monitor for students to view, not only the instructor but also the person asking questions or simply putting a view.

  • Career Development Initiatives for Third party Employees: Development and
           Validation of a Scale

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Mahima Anand, Sushmita Biswal Waraich
      Abstract: Management and Labour Studies, Ahead of Print.
      The study develops and validates an instrument to measure the perception of third-party employees (TPEs) towards career development initiatives undertaken by the client organization. Based on the review of the literature and the interviews held with subject experts and practitioners, different constructs (capturing career development initiatives for TPEs) were identified. To validate the study, the process of scale development was conducted in two phases using two distinct samples (N = 117 and N = 167). Initially, 61 items representing career development initiatives as perceived by TPEs, were developed. This was followed by the exploratory factor analysis (EFA) to extract and reduce the items. Using EFA, five factors were extracted, namely, mentoring, training, challenging assignments, performance appraisal and feedback, and internal job postings, consisting of 18 items, all of which met the criteria of EFA. These 18 items were reported to a different sample of TPEs to check the model fit through confirmatory factor analysis (CFA). This included the reliability and validity assessment of the measurement scale. The results supported a five-factor model, consisting of 16 items (two items were not supported), which collectively formed the scale on perceived investment in career development (PICD) for TPEs.

      Authors: Palanisamy Saravanan, Sumit Banerjee
      Abstract: Management and Labour Studies, Ahead of Print.
      Student engagement is critical to creating a collaborative and involved learning environment. The pandemic brought the class room engagement between the faculty and the students to a halt. We tried to find different avenues for the students to reach out to the faculty and to have an open forum to facilitate discussions among themselves. This approach helped us in increasing engagement and also allowed students who would normally not speak during the class hours to contribute to the overall learning during the course.JEL Codes: I20, I23, I29

           of Board Independence

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Rekha Handa
      Abstract: Management and Labour Studies, Ahead of Print.
      The present study attempts to explore the Indian banking sector from 2007 to 2017 for its performance and for the influence of important characteristics like ownership of banks, board functioning and the effect of independent directors. The results establish that the type of bank has a significant impact on performance metrics, board characteristics and bank-specific features. Moreover, the positive significant influence of board size and board independence is confirmed using panel data analysis. Further, the partially mediating role of independent directors on the relationship of financial performance (measured through return on assets and return on equity) and board characteristics is confirmed using mediation analysis. The present research holds important insights for policymakers, regulators and stakeholders of the banking sector, with a push to reorient their emphasis on board independence and board functioning for better financials of banks in India.

  • The Subtle Art of Effecting a Four-day Workweek to Drive Performance

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Debarun Chakraborty, Shakti Bodh Bhatnagar, Wendrila Biswas, Ganesh Dash
      Abstract: Management and Labour Studies, Ahead of Print.
      Organizations have long been experimenting with shortened workweeks. This study investigates the finer points that can make a four-day workweek efficacious. Though studies have revealed that the four-day workweek delivers well on productivity goals, extant literature has not yet examined the details of how to bring about a transformational change in employee performance as a result of the change. The current study empirically explores different nuanced factors that can translate a strategic vision into an achievable tactical plan, one that hones the skills and learning of employees. The present study takes into consideration psychological well-being as a possible moderator. A sample of 604 employees was taken from the service and manufacturing companies in India. Partial least squares structural equation modelling (PLS-SEM) has been used to analyse the inter relationships among the variables. The findings revealed that the following factors had a significant effect on the performance of employees practising the four-day workweek: ‘strategic planning at work’, ‘viewing the company as a brand’, ‘continually connecting’ and ‘inspiring happiness at work’. The various implications of this study are discussed in depth in light of these findings.

      Authors: Mylavaram Chandra Shekar, Amit Shrivastava
      Abstract: Management and Labour Studies, Ahead of Print.
      Online mode of instruction has become the new normal since 2020. Despite the pros and cons, it has become the only way to cater to educational fulfilment during the most stressful times. While most of them may deem it the most unaccepted mode of education, considering the hard fact of huge fees paid towards the institutes and not making the most out of it, it might bring in some good vibes to know about the positives of distance education environment. One such positive about the online mode of education is its continuity despite the panic in society, which ties back to the need for education in a country like India, which strongly believes that today’s children are tomorrow’s future. This article provides an overview of the challenges faced by the most important stakeholders of an educational institute (students and faculty of finance-related courses) during online classes. First, it takes a closer view of its impact on finance education, followed by the possible ways to ensure students and faculty stay engaged and connected online.

  • Managing Channel Partner Conflict: The Case of Z-Tel Mobile, India

      Abstract: Management and Labour Studies, Ahead of Print.
      A channel partner is a third party involved in sales and services. They act as a front end for the organization and play a vital role in promoting the business. If a channel partner acts against the business, what options are left with the company' The case narrates such a scenario of conflict between a leading mobile telephony business player and its channel partner in Andhra Pradesh Telecom Circle, India. The channel partner created chaos by intimidating the sales team and approached the distributor association to address the conflict. The association initiated a boycott of business related to the company in that region. It became imperative for the COO of that organization to resolve the issue without compromising its image and business interests. The case involves stakeholders such as channel partners, distributors, a trade body and the sales employees of the organization. The resolution of the issue is embedded in the theoretical aspects of negotiation and social exchange theory.

  • Organizational Influences on the Motivation to Transfer Soft Skill
           Training in an Indian Power Organization

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Malabika Sahoo, Sumita Mishra
      Abstract: Management and Labour Studies, Ahead of Print.
      The study extends the Theory of Planned Behaviour (TPB) in examining the influence of key organizational antecedents (supervisory and peer support, opportunities to use the training provided and rewards) on the motivation to transfer (MTT) soft skill training. Trainee self-efficacy (SE) and the desire to learn (DL) are also examined as mediators in determining this influence. The sample included 389 employees from a state-owned power transmission organization in Odisha, India. The resultant findings note the direct and positive influence of organizational antecedents on MTT, SE and DL. Trainee SE and DL partially mediate the association between organizational antecedents and MTT. Given a lack of focus on soft skill training transfer in the Indian power sector, this study is of immense value in identifying relevant organizational enablers that motivate the transfer of soft skills. The study also advances the knowledge on the direct and indirect influence of organizational antecedents on MTT in the Indian cultural context.

      Abstract: Management and Labour Studies, Ahead of Print.
      The continuing COVID-19 crisis is informing global investors, chief finance officers, risk managers, policymakers, regulatory bodies and the public at large that natural disasters can cause economic/financial damage on a previously unprecedented scale. It is different from a potential nuclear war that no one can survive or climate risk that is slow-moving or even localized disasters (Goodell, 2020, Finance Research Letters, Vol. 35, p. 101512). One thing is for sure, for researchers and academics in finance, the crisis brings in challenges that require investigation in almost all disciplines that spin out of core corporate finance and risk management.JEL Codes: G1, G10, G21, I20, I 23, I26

      Authors: Samit Paul
      Abstract: Management and Labour Studies, Ahead of Print.
      The recent crisis of COVID-19 poses a serious threat to the smooth functioning of the finance education in Indian business schools. Both general and specific pedagogical issues related to finance education crop up. However, innovation at institute and individual instructor level mitigates such threats to large extent and successfully maintains the desired learning environment for students in the ‘virtual’ mode.

  • Multidimensional Impact of COVID-19 on the Indian Education Sector

      Authors: Manish Bansal
      Abstract: Management and Labour Studies, Ahead of Print.
      The article discusses the impact of COVID-19 on the education sector in India and aims at providing suggestions to build a resilient Indian education system. The findings and suggestions highlighted in the article are based on the personal experiences and learning of the author during this pandemic. Lack of awareness of technology, a lack of administrative support toward the implementation, a lack of an attitude towards transforming the education system, a lack of support from the government on the financial front and a lack of willingness among students to accept online learning are found to be major hurdles in the path of shifting from face-to-face learning to online learning during this crisis. Given that the level of proactive and disciplined learning is lower in online learning when compared with traditional learning in emerging nations, the article strongly recommends the need for educational application development to carry out the teaching-related practices and proliferate the impact of the pandemic on the education sector.JEL Codes: I21, I23

      Abstract: Management and Labour Studies, Ahead of Print.
      In real life scenarios, an individual comes across myriad situations that are marked with ambiguity and uncertainty. How do we prepare ourselves to embrace ambiguity and think critically in such situations' With the COVID-19 global pandemic, industry experts and academicians are referring to live with a crisis once in every 5 years, as the new normal. Each crisis is unique and so is the COVID-19 pandemic. As an educator and faculty, a mere lecture on critical thinking will not be enough and nor can the students be stirred towards critical thinking with few sessions. Curriculum reforms are required, and students need to go through experiential learning. The classroom teaching should not become part of the problem, but part of the solution in future.JEL Codes: M0, I20, I29, Y7

      Abstract: Management and Labour Studies, Ahead of Print.
      The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is a stress test for the finance educators around the world. With students forced to stay home, finance educators are constantly on their toes to ensure that classes continue and that even the most vulnerable one is not left behind. As the cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) in India rose in early March 2020, more and more management institutes adopted to a virtual setting of teaching. This shift from traditional to online mode was sudden. Many different approaches are being taken by different institutes both domestically and internationally to learn from each other and make online teaching more engaging and effective for the students. The pandemic has brought all the finance educators together in sharing their experiences with virtual teaching and trying to adopt what suits them best given the infrastructure at their disposal. All finance educators are in their own way trying to mitigate the effect of the pandemic and giving their best in these challenging times. This short article illustrates my experiences of teaching finance and accounting in the virtual setting at the B-School I teach.JEL Codes: Y30; I21

Digital education, which authorities contemplated would take years to implement, was enforced overnight in the region. However, transformation to the online mode of learning posed many obstacles. As a finance educator in the region, I narrate here my experiences with respect to the challenges faced in managing the disruption, methods adopted to engage students, and the different techniques used for online assessments & student feedback.

This study explores the pedagogical challenges faced by academicians and the innovative remedial measures adopted by them. This study follows an inductive approach using qualitative interviews and uses the cognitive apprenticeship model as the theoretical underpinning. Findings indicate that all domain aspects of the cognitive apprenticeship model are not equally relevant in an online teaching scenario compared to offline teaching. Findings also indicate that the interpersonal and communicational aspects of the learning environment have gained more prominence in online teaching. This article contributes to the existing literature by bringing early evidence on the challenges and innovations in online teaching. In addition, this study also contributes to the understanding of the cognitive apprenticeship model in an online scenario. Even though the scope of the study was limited to academicians from the finance and accounting area, the findings are globally relevant. They have practical implications for other disciplines as well.JEL Classification Codes: M0, I20, I29, Y7

      Abstract: Management and Labour Studies, Ahead of Print.
      The most crucial determinant of success in any service environment is the perception of the customers about the service quality or the product quality as it derives satisfaction and loyalty. Considering this imperative, the present review focuses on the service quality of online teaching, which has become a new normal during the pandemic. The pandemic has resulted in a paradigm shift of imparting education from brick to click classrooms. Hence, this article reviews the literature on the factors influencing service quality of click classrooms and mentions the parameters that lead to learners’ satisfaction. The systematic review helps in understanding how the research in this field has progressed. It is evident from this review that creating an interactive learning environment, giving prompt feedbacks, providing rich digital resources and course content, competent and skilled faculty members and continuous student support play a crucial role in enhancing the service quality of click classrooms leveraging learners’ satisfaction. The findings of this study support the educational institutions towards developing a sound and sustainable online learning environment by comprehending the students’ expectations about the service quality of an online learning environment. The study aims to propel future research works towards improving the service quality of click classrooms and enriching learners’ experience to impart quality education for all the stakeholders.

      Abstract: Management and Labour Studies, Ahead of Print.
      Start-up organizations are informal and loosely structured, and they operate in a highly volatile environment that has a high attrition rate. This makes the employees of start-ups susceptible to stress, which may lead to turnover intentions. Industrial reports show that start-up organizations have a higher turnover ratio in comparison to that in other sectors. The purpose of this article is to explore the antecedents of job stress in Indian start-ups and to examine their relationship with job stress. Furthermore, the mediating role of job stress in the relationship between turnover intentions and the antecedents of job stress itself is also examined. Using snowball sampling, 1,000 employees of five start-up companies in India are targeted to record 473 responses. Post data cleaning, only 412 functional responses are used for the study. The analysis in the study is carried out using structural equation modelling. The results reveal that three role stressors and job insecurity positively influence job stress, which eventually leads to turnover intentions. The mediation analysis also reveals that job stress partially mediates the relationship between turnover intentions and job stressors that include job insecurity. The findings of this article will be useful for human resource (HR) managers in start-up organizations. The suggestions presented in this article will help HR managers to find ways to keep the employees free of stress, bringing down the rate of turnover intentions in the process.JEL Code: M

      Abstract: Management and Labour Studies, Ahead of Print.
      Emotional resilience may be seen as the ability of an individual to cope with adversities and bounce back from failures. Emotional resilience requires a high degree of self-awareness, strong self-regulation and a host of other attributes. Factors like stress, burnout, lack of social support and negative thinking are enemies of emotional resilience. Most of the existing models of emotional resilience deal with children, adolescents, the armed forces or patients. They do not take into account factors affecting emotional resilience of an adult in general. This article aims to study the concept of emotional resilience in adults, analyse key factors affecting the same and propose a new theoretical model of emotional resilience for adults. In addition, based on the literature and experiential knowledge of the authors, this article seeks to develop 12 propositions based on the antecedents of emotional resilience in adults.
