  • Exploring Various Leadership Styles to Use Among Nurses Towards Challenges
           Faced Within the 21st Century: A Systematic Review

    • Authors: Lyndon Garvin Augustine
      Pages: 55 - 69
      Abstract: The workforce for registered nurses (RNs) are currently facing unprecedented challenges. Current challenges such as the consequences associated with patient falls and healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) have placed a social and financial burden on the U.S. healthcare system. What’s more, future challenges such as the expected retirement for baby boomers and an expected shortage on the availability of medical physicians has raised many concerns for healthcare organizations on how they will deliver care in the years to come. The conclusion is that these challenges will significantly affect the well-being of the RN workforce. Hence, because of these challenges, the objective of this research was to explore various leadership styles to use among nurses towards challenges faced within the 21st century. By focusing on these challenges, the researcher provided findings around ethics and its impact on decision-making. Thereafter, the researcher highlighted common leadership styles that are used, and then proposed a new leadership theory, servant leadership, as an option for Chief Nursing Officers to use to help guide its nursing workforce going forward.

  • Article Review: Internship Satisfaction Determinants Among Undergraduates
           in the Service Industry

    • Authors: Syafinaz Ruslan, Siti Fatimah Mohamad, Nurul Hanisah Juhari, Muhammad Shahrim Abdul Karim
      Pages: 70 - 84
      Abstract: An internship program is integrated into higher learning institutions curriculum. It is aimed to cultivate students ability in applying knowledge from classrooms to practices. Internship satisfaction is identified as one of the focal points to assess the effectiveness of an internship program. Nonetheless, only little studies reviewed the determinants of internship satisfaction, particularly within the service-oriented industry. Thus, the main objective of this study was to review factors that influence internship satisfaction in the service industry, particularly the hospitality industry. Besides, the importance of internship in developing self-competencies among students is also discussed. A number of articles were obtained from two different databases, using keywords related to the topic. The articles were carefully examined, derived from relevant disciplines in the service industry: hospitality and tourism, business, sports management, education, and human resource. Main determinants of the internship satisfaction were clustered into five categories: individual factors, job characteristics, organisational environment, contextual factors, and career potential. Besides, the importance of internship experiences in fostering students self-competencies were discussed, including interpersonal skills, problem-solving, self-confidence, and knowledge about the job market. Findings on this paper are anticipated to extend the literature review on internship research and assist internship stakeholders in structuring a well-rounded internship program. As this paper is only based on traditional literature reviews, it has a limitation in its methodology. Hence, future research is recommended to use a structured methodology such as systematic reviews or scoping reviews.

  • Person to Organization Fit & Person to the Job Fit Impact on Employment
           Interview Decisions. An Exploratory Field Study in Greece

    • Authors: Andreas Dimopoulos, Drimpetas Evaggelos, Kostas Zafiropoulos
      Pages: 130 - 145
      Abstract: Person to organization fit and person to the job fit are considered among many other factors that affect employment outcomes during employee selection process. There is a consensus to a large extent, that both of them as candidate’s qualities have great positive influence and affect recruiters, personnel managers and employers’ decisions, and respectively hiring results. This study aims to assess the level of influence of employee candidates’ qualities of Person-to-Organization fit and Person-to-the Job fit, and their relative affect in recruiters’ hiring decisions on staff selection through interview process. The study also aims to explore if there is a significant difference between the effects that these factors have on hireability-selectability of candidates. The significance of candidate’s Person to Organization Fit and Person to the Job Fit were measured according to three choices of recruiter’s decisions during interview, which were more specifically the possibility to hire them, the possibility to consider them as suitable for the position they applied for, and the possibility of giving them a second chance for another interview. These three measures were consolidated in one indicator with the term hireability-eligibility which has been tested for reliability using Cronbach’s alpha. A field study has been conducted in order to research the importance and relative influence of candidates’ person to organization fit and person to the job fit as well, in recruiters’ hiring decisions, during interview selection process. Findings reveal that both of these candidates’ attributes, Person to Organization fit and Person to the Job fit, have significant effects on recruiters’ decisions and selection outcomes, regarding the hireabilty, eligibility index when they are assessed separately, using simple regression analysis. However, when they are combined in a multiple regression analysis model, only Person to Organization fit has a significant effect on recruiters, employers’ decisions.

  • A Serial Mediation Model of Perceived Organizational Support on Turnover
           Intention: The Role of Job Crafting and Thriving at Work

    • Authors: Suchuan Zhang, Wenzhao Zhang
      Pages: 146 - 163
      Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to increase understanding of the influence mechanisms of perceived organizational support (POS) on turnover intention, through job crafting and thriving at work. Two-wave data from 541 full-time employees working in northern China were collected. The hypotheses were tested using hierarchical linear regression analysis with the PROCESS plug-in for SPSS to determine the significance of mediators. The results showed that though job crafting did not mediate the POS-turnover intention relationship alone, it interposed in this relationship by affecting thriving at work. This study suggests that a supportive work environment that inspires employees to redesign their jobs and thrive at work plays an important role in helping retain staff. From an employees’ self-development perspective, this study proposed a serial mediation model to extend understanding of POS - turnover intention relationship.

  • Employee Engagement and Its Relationship Towards Normative Commitment in
           Malaysia Oil and Gas Industry

    • Authors: Ridwan Mokhtar, Sylvia Nabila Azwa Ambad, Sharifah Nurafizah Syed Annuar, Nelson Lajuni
      Pages: 164 - 178
      Abstract: The relationship between employee engagement and organisational commitment has been established and documented in past literature. Hitherto, they are still very relevant and remain a pertinent subject to be discussed, especially with the rapid evolution of business and adjustments in the economic setting. However, much of the focus of past studies were surrounding employee engagement divulging organisational commitment. Only a few studies on the impacts of employee engagement on normative commitment have been shown, especially in Malaysia’s oil and gas industry. We do not adequately know how employee engagement is associated with normative commitment. Hence, this study goals to examine the effects of employee engagement on normative commitment. Two hundred fifty offshore employees participated in this study. Subsequently, 234 completed responses were collected, and Partial Least Squared-Structural Equation Modelling were used to analyse the data using SmartPLS 3.3.2 version. The findings advise that employee engagement, particularly organisational engagement dimension, has a positive relationship with both normative commitment dimensions among offshore employees in Malaysia. This study provided oil and gas organisation with an improved insight and understanding of the significance of the organisational engagement aspect in improving employees’ level of normative commitment among offshore employees. Because of the recent pandemic outbreak, future studies should consider the organisational support rendered by the organisation to offshore employees in predicting the new norms for oil and gas companies. Future studies should also utilise the qualitative approach or employ the Partial Least Square-Multi-Group Analysis (PLS-MGA) to examine whether ethnicity, working tenure, and working locations play an essential role in the relationship between employee engagement and normative commitment.

  • Multi-focal Analysis of Workplace Spirituality and Employee Commitment:
           Exploratory Empirical Assessment

    • Authors: Mohamed Fares Brini
      Pages: 179 - 203
      Abstract: The purpose of this paper was to examine the contribution of workplace spirituality to employee commitment from a multi-focal perspective at the individual, group and organizational levels. Obtained data from a random sample of 111 Tunisian employees were analysed using PLS-SEM to test the proposed hypothesis of the study. The findings revealed that three-dimensional workplace spirituality (meaningful work, sense of community and organizational values) contributed positively and significantly to multiple commitment levels (individual, group and organization levels). Besides, these spiritual dimensions contributed to more than one level and showed that workplace spirituality framework can provide an expanded contribution to the multiple commitment research. In particular, meaningful work had the largest contribution to all commitment levels and can offer unique approach to manage overall commitment within organizations.

  • Synoptic Review of Theory and Practice of Diversity Management

    • Authors: Kwesi Atta Sakyi, Geoffrey K. Mweshi, David Musona, Esnart Mwaba Tayali
      Pages: 204 - 249
      Abstract: Diversity is a topic which has gained much momentum and currency in modern academic discourse partially because of globalisation and also partially because of the increased use of information technology in global transactions. The complex operations of multinational corporations across the globe require prudent and efficient management of employees from different backgrounds. Management of diversity means many things to many people. In this article, the authors delineate the importance, pros and cons of diversity management for firms, and also they deploy the analysis of some case study videos to bring to the fore the growing importance of the phenomenon of diversity. The authors used secondary data and qualitative analysis in their discourse. The authors reviewed literature from diverse sources to give a theoretical foundation to the article and at the same time they approached the topic in a multi-faceted manner to whet the appetite of both theoreticians and practitioners. The philosophical underpinning of their approach was based on Grounded Theory as it could be seen in the video case study narratives and in their own interpretative narrative of the subject.

  • Effect of Spirituality, Demographics, and Culture on Career Satisfaction,
           Organizational Fairness Climate, and Affective Commitment in Pakistani
           Organization: The Mediatory Role of Ethical Leadership

    • Authors: Muhammad Owais, Danish Ahmed Siddiqui
      Pages: 266 - 305
      Abstract: The lens through which followers experience the ethical dimension of leadership itself it is argued is likely distorted by a followers’ level in the hierarchy. In this regard, ethical leadership may be better conceptualized as an intermediary through which follower status contributes to these desirable outcomes. This research expands the literature about the causes, consequences, and the unique role of ethical leadership in the workplace. In particular, we examine the mediated model of ethical leadership in the effect of individualism, spirituality, as well as demographics on organizational outcomes like 1. Organization’s fairness climate (CF), 2. Affective commitment (AC), and 3. Career satisfaction (CS). Drawing on the work of Pucic (2015), we argue that demographics like Job, experience, Age, Education, Position, and Working Hour of employees affect their perception of ethical leadership (EL) in the organization, and this perception, in turn, affect the three above mentioned outcomes. In the same way, spirituality and individualistic (IND) cultures also influence these outcomes through EL. Spirituality was further sub-classified into Spiritual Believe (SB), Coping (SC), Experience (SE), and Practices (SP). Empirical validity was established by conducting a survey using a close-ended questionnaire. Data was collected from 500 employees and analyzed using confirmatory factor analysis and structured equation modeling. The results suggested that Ethical leadership, individualistic culture, and years of experience have a positive and significant effect on all three outcomes i.e. AC, CF, CS. Moreover, Education and Spiritual Believe seem to have a positive impact on AC. Similarly, Spiritual Experience also has a positive effect on CF. Surprisingly, position and Spiritual Practices seem to have a negative and significant impact on career satisfaction. Moreover, Education, individualism, and position also seem to be positively impacting ethical leadership. Hence, EL positively mediates the effect of education, individualism, and position on AC, CF, and CS respectively. Implications for theory and practice are discussed.

  • Reflections on Domestic Violence During the Movement Control Order: Case
           Study Evidence from Media Reports

    • Authors: Adam Andani Mohammed, Md. Sayed Uddin, Abdallah Mpawenimana Saidi
      Pages: 320 - 335
      Abstract: The study investigates the incidence of domestic violence as reported by the press under the Movement Control Order MCO during the pandemic. The study also discussed how of issues of domestic violence can be handled now and during future pandemics. Empirical evidence used in this study is based on secondary data and qualitative analysis technique adopted to assess issues of domestic violence. To get relevant data, Google Scholar was used as a tool to access the major databases provided by Springer, IISTE, Tailor and Frances, Emerald, Elsevier, Sage and others. Data were obtained from newspaper articles and news articles from various online news outlets as the only source to access data of incidence of domestic violence in Malaysia during the lockdown. Results indicate a slight decrease in calls on domestic violence immediately after the MCO was implemented on March 18. It is found that the decrease was due to the fact that survivors or victims were trapped with the abusers and could not seek help or escape. The study further found that organizations attending to domestic violence cases reported a serious increase in number of abuse cases in Malaysia in the second week of the MCO thus between 18 and 31 March. The findings are intended to contribute to the narratives on violence against women now and during future disease outbreaks. It may also assist in the future improvement of the provision of services and interventions for victims of domestic violence during pandemic.

  • Inflation Rate, Exchange Rate, Remittances Inflows and Economic
           Performance in Nigeria: A Granger Causality Approach

    • Authors: Peter Ego Ayunku, Rachel Konyefa Dickson
      Pages: 336 - 350
      Abstract: This study empirically investigated the impact of inflation rate, exchange rate and remittances inflows on the economic performance of Nigeria using time series data from 1960 to 2018. The study employed econometric techniques such as the Augmented Dickey Fuller (ADF) unit root test, correlation statistics, granger causality testand the ordinary least squares multivariate regression methods to analyze the data. The study finding showed that remittances inflows are a major driver of economic activities and growth in the Nigeria clime. Exchange rate exerted a positive impact on gross domestic product per capita growth in Nigeria. Both remittances inflows and exchange rate maintained a bi-directional causality with the performance of economy of Nigeria. The study concludes that remittances inflows have a correlation with monetary policy transmission mechanisms towards enhancing the performance of the economy of Nigeria. It is therefore recommended that the government needs to create investors’ friendly environment capable of encouraging migrants to channel their resources into the economy. This will help to boost economic activities, reduce unemployment rate, increases savings, with the end goal of engendering economic performance of Nigeria. To reduce the effect of Inflation in Nigeria, this study suggests that the policy monetary authority (CBN) needs to come up with a policy framework that can enhance the country’s capital stock instead of expending it.

  • Is Perceived Organizational Support an Antecedent of Employee

    • Authors: Nor Azima Ahmad, Siti Salwa Salim, Fariza Md Sham
      Pages: 351 - 265
      Abstract: Employee is one of the most valuable asset in an organization. It is important to provide support to the employee to ensure their welfare is guaranteed. This paper measures the impact of perceived organizational support on employee behaviour.  Questionnaire survey data was collected from 114 respondents who are presently employed at a public organization in Malaysia. The partial least squares structural equation model (PLS-SEM) was used to test the hypotheses. There are four findings derived from the data, first: supervisor support negatively correlated with organizational commitment. Second, supervisor support positively correlated with organizational citizenship behaviour. Meanwhile, third procedural justice positively correlated with organizational commitment. Lastly, procedural justice positively correlated with organizational citizenship behaviour. Theoretical and practical implications, as well as limitations, are discussed.

  • Knowledge - Based Innovation for Sustainable Competitive Advantage

    • Authors: W M I Udayanganie
      Pages: 366 - 373
      Abstract: We live in an era which is an interval of significant technological as well as economic and social shifts. This is elucidated by the move from a traditional society based on industry to a modern knowledge-based society. Most important aspect of this is not the increase in production volumes and forms. Rather it is the emergence of novel and fundamentally novel knowledge. Above mentioned society would therefore focus on new knowledge to produce new goods and technologies. It also looks into different ways of economic, manufacturing, ecological, humanitarian and social governance. This study explores the potential of translating knowledge, creativity and innovation into an efficient definition of a product.

    • Authors: Chovarda; Maria, Theriou, Georgios
      Pages: 374 - 388
      Abstract: Employees play a crucial role in delivery of service quality and retention of satisfied and loyal customers. Of the various factors that contribute towards this end, work engagement among employees has gained a great deal of interest from both practitioners and academics in the fields of business, human resource development, and organizational psychology, based on the perspective that engaged employees are likely to display high quality performance in the workplace. Meanwhile, Training and Development (T&D) practices are considered to contribute to the employees’ engagement in their work environment. This paper examines the potential impact of Perceived Training Opportunities (PTO) and Perceived Investment in Employee Development (PIED) on work engagement. A research model has been developed and empirically tested, using primary data from a survey of 185 bank employees working in Greece. Empirical results reveal a strong relationship between PTO and PIED with work engagement. Banks should invest in training and development opportunities as a means to enhance work engagement and gain a competitive edge in delivering high quality services to the customers.

  • Impact of Job Insecurity due to COVID-19 on the Psychological Wellbeing
           and Resiliency of Food Delivery Personnel

    • Authors: Aisha Sarwar, Usman Maqsood, Bahaudin G. Mujtaba
      Pages: 24 - 44
      Abstract: This study examines when and why job insecurity due to COVID-19 leads to decreased well-being in hotel (restaurant) delivery personnel. It also examines resiliency as a moderator between job insecurity and employee anxiety. Data was collected in time lags from 253 respondents of food delivery personnel in hotel restaurants. The findings suggest that job insecurity due to COVID-19 decreased an employee’s well-being via financial stress. Moreover, resiliency played a buffering role in mitigating the damaging impact of job insecurity on fanatical stress. Theoretical and practical implications are included in this paper. COVID-19 is considered as most devastating and fatal diseases of this century since it is negatively impacting many industries, including hotels and restaurants. While some researchers have reflected upon the nature of this disease, the arrival of possible vaccine and economic outcomes, the employees’ psychological outcomes are largely ignored areas of research. Hence, this study attempts to fill this gap by adding relevant knowledge to the field. This study contributes to literature in various ways. Firstly, this study proposes and measures employees’ job insecurity due to infectious disease COVID-19 in hotels. Secondly, anxiety is measured as a mechanism to explain the relationship between perceived job insecurity and employees’ psychological well-being.Thirdly, this study proposes and empirically tests the factors which may decrease employees’ well-being during the outbreak of a COVID-19 pandemic. Fourthly, this study examines employees’ personality trait of resiliency as a buffering factor between job insecurity and employee anxiety. Finally, this research validates the conservation of resources theory in terms of external stressor and personal resource in the form of resiliency. Hence this study is a timely response against the current coronavirus pandemic to expand the scope in domain of mental health specifically among hotel employees to provide insights to practitioners. The objective of this paper is to examine the impact of job insecurity on mental health of hotel employees and to recommend a few avenues for practitioners to mitigate its devastating effects.

      Abstract: In modern times, the trends in students’ choice of specialization in the bachelor’s degree are changing rapidly. Therefore, this research study attempts to build a conceptual framework to uncover the relationship between students’ choice of specialization in Human Resources Management (HRM) and the factors that influence students’ decision making when selecting the area of specialization. This concept paper examines the independent variables (influential factors) which impact the selection of HRM as an area of specialization. The conceptualization supports the theoretical framework created to identify the personal factors, academic factors and social factors which lead to the selection of the area of specialization. The primary importance of this paper is that the conceptual framework can be used in other countries for academic purposes.

      Pages: 85 - 115
      Abstract: This paper explores the negative impact of changing Medicare regulations have on hospital profitability. Findings indicate that the successful strategies billing managers could use to ensure Medicare reimbursement and profitability include remaining up to date with Medicare changing compliance regulations, enhancing communication with staff, multiple departments, and Medicare, and adopting a robust billing system and other systems that compliment billing. Since the implementation of changes, hospitals continued to foster criterion to ensure successful Medicare reimbursement, thereby remaining in operation to continue to support the healthcare needs of families in the local communities. The biggest obstacle for hospitals is the ever-revolving Medicare reform and the effects it has on lowering reimbursement for the hospital industry. Hospitals that are affected by reform report issues that relate to the Medicare Prospective Payment System (PPS), payment for performance, and value-based payments.
