  • Remote working challenges for Georgian social enterprises in the context
           of the current pandemic

    • Abstract: The lockdown regulations aiming at avoiding the spread of the new coronavirus COVID-19 have caused disruptions in organizations of all types or sizes. In order to survive and remain competitive, enterprises have moved online. In line with the dramatic changes around the globe triggered by the regulations as a part of preventive measures, social enterprises switched to working from home. As a result, entrepreneurs have to learn new digital skills to capture the potential of digitalization as it is considered to have an ability to accelerate economic recovery after the pandemic. Yet digitalization influences organizational processes and operations and requires changes in strategies. In light of these transformations, researching social enterprises from different angles is of particular importance when economies are facing the threat of recession, as social entrepreneurship addresses market failure and can tackle social problems. Social entrepreneurs can find innovative solutions to modern challenges and help society and economies to transform. Therefore, this paper aims to investigate the feasibility of remote working and digitalization in social enterprises. The paper outlines remote working concerns in social enterprises in the Republic of Georgia and analyses flextime opportunities for enterprise employees. The empirical study is based on a qualitative research approach. In-depth interviews were conducted with the seventeen Georgian social entrepreneurs to explore the research questions. The paper contributes to understanding remote working in social enterprises and offers suggestions for future study directions in this under-researched area.

  • Profitability Analysis of Small and Medium Scale Salt Enterprises, Misamis
           Oriental, Philippines

    • Abstract: The study analyzed the profitability of small and medium scale salt enterprises in Alubijid and El Salvador City, Misamis Oriental, Philippines. It determined salt production practices; assessed the profitability of salt production; and identified the problems encountered in salt production. Forty-two salt producers in the area were personally interviewed using a pre-tested interview schedule. Descriptive and cost and returns analysis, rate of return on investment (ROI), and ANOVA were employed. Results revealed that the production practices of the salt producers are dictated by the flooring materials of salt beds and the type and volume of salt produced were highly dependent on the flooring materials and on weather. It was concluded that salt production is a profitable enterprise and the salt beds with transparent polyethylene plastic as flooring material were the most profitable, despite having the most labor-intensive production process. Recommendations include usage of transparent polyethylene plastic as flooring material and teaching appropriate technology for seawater filtration to address the problem on degraded quality of seawater with the local government unit (LGU) taking the lead. Also, a soft loan program be put up for buying flooring materials so that more members of the lakeshore community can engage in the salt making.

  • Ta’ awun behavior, work stress, worklife balance in Islamic perspective
           and employee performance : investigation in Indonesia

    • Abstract: Ta’ awun behavior is very rarely being studied in business research especially when associated with employee performance. This study examines and analyzes the partial effect of: (1) ta’ awun behavior on employee performance, work stress, and work-life balance in Islamic perspective (WLBIP), (2) work stress and WLBIP on employee performance and (3) the mediating role of work stress and WLBIP in the relationship between ta’ awun behavior on employee performance. Data is collected through distributing questionnaires to employees of financial services companies in the Special Region of Yogyakarta with purposive manner. The statistical technique uses Partial Least Square. The results prove that ta’ awun behavior is partially able to make a positive contribution to the employees performance and WLBIP. Ta’ awun behavior also reduces work stress. Employee work stress reduces employee performance and WLBIP improves employee performance. Work stress is able to mediate ta’ awun behavior on employee performance, but WLBIP is not able to mediate it. This study implies that the research model can be applied to employees of business companies, which so far have focused on social and community institutions.

  • Economic voting in the Philippines

    • Abstract: The article wanted to find out if elections in the Philippines are economically motivated. Using 2019 gubernatorial election results, a logit model with inflation rate, unemployment rate, provincial revenue, and poverty incidence for the economic variables and party affiliation with the President and membership in a political family as the political variables was tested to explain the probability of an incumbent governor to be re-elected. The marginal effects tell us that a change in the unemployment rate decreases the predicted probability of a governor being reelected but interestingly, a change in the poverty incidence rates has the opposite effect.

  • Factors Affecting the Level of Firm’s Ability to Create Value Relative
           to Capital Invested and Financial Distress Probability

    • Abstract: The level of firms’s ability to create value relative to invested capital (LACVIC) is proxied by Price to Book Value Ratio. Price to Book Ratio is also a proxy of firm value. The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of growth, profitability, size and assets tangibility on the level of firm’s ability to create value with probability of financial distress as an intervening variable. This study was conducted on public companies in Indonesia during the periods of 2013 – 2017. The panel data were analyzed by using Partial Least Square. Results indicate that assets tangibility has positive and significant effect on financial distress probability. Financial distress probability has no significant effect on LACVIC. Profitability, firm size, and assets tangibility have significant effects LACVIC directly, but they have no significant effect on it trough financial distress probability. It is indicating that financial distress probability does not act as an intervening variable. The implication is that companies should not have much assets tangibility because it can increase financial distress probability and decrease LACVIC

  • Activating Large Lecture Financial Learning: Collaboration and Clickers
           During Covid-19

    • Abstract: This paper examines our approach to teaching a large-lecture personal finance course promoting students’ financial literacy. We identify the context of this course, including the rationale for large-enrolment courses and issues with the format in general, describing how using clickers and active learning strategies results in increased engagement, attendance, and critical thinking. Learning outcomes designed to support student formation of both internal and external views of finance are holistic and expansive, broader than measures of wealth accumulation alone. Moreover, a strategic initiative focused on career readiness aligns specific competencies with course content focused on developing transferrable skills through practical, real-world examples designed to engage problem-solving and critical thinking. This pragmatic and practical focus linked these transferable skills to a framework of learning grounded in the twin concepts of financial capability and competency. Additionally, we address how Covid-19 disrupted these courses, detailing adjustments necessitated by the new reality of social distancing while adjusting our approach to student participation as we met simultaneously in face-to-face and synchronous Zoom sessions. We concluded that additional considerations must include equitable access to resources based on our pandemic experience. Future research should examine these adjustments in light of developing culturally responsive methods to promote equitable learning.

  • National Health Reforms in Georgia during 1994-2021 and their Success

    • Abstract: The Health Reform of the country is a very difficult burden for two reasons: firstly, we need an appropriate economy level in the country, that can bear the new health model, established through reform, and secondly, the country needs a health system that is appropriate either for its economic system or for its tradition and history. Health reformers need to match all the points of the health reform concept, its implementation, and the systems of the country. Due to its Soviet past, Georgia struggled in the last twenty years to find an effective and cost efficient health model for its citizens. Starting from the 90s, Georgia instituted three health reforms and finally found some sustainable measures. The present article explores the three waves of the Georgian Health Care reforms, and analyses the factors of their success and the reasons for their failures. The importance of studying the Health Care systems is derived from Sustainable Development Goals targeting Health issues including health-related topics to improve the population’s health and wellbeing as well as achieve universal coverage of health services. The research contributes to the knowledge regarding the Health Care Reforms, and their practical implications on a country.

  • The Concept of Waqf-Syirkah for Community Food Security

    • Abstract: Food is essential for human survival, and ensuring its availability is critical. Waqf is present as one of supporting institutions that supports food security. This paper aims to see how waqf can contribute to the food security of a community. Waqf, in its sense is an Islamic philanthropic institution that focus on welfare of Muslim. As a Muslim, it is important to safeguard one’s life as stated in Maqasid As Shariah. This paper employs systematic literature review to see the contribution of waqf through syirkah (partnership) for community food security. Syirkah plays its role as a connector between waqf and food security, with farmers at its spearhead. Syirkah is chosen because it is compatible with farmer’s business and waqf may serve to their business sustainability in general, and farmer’s livelihood in particular. The ultimate goal of this concept is to achieve stability in the supply of staple food which leads to its price stability, hence staple food is available and accessible to all. Furthermore, the stability achieved will reduce the burden of government to provide staple food in times of crisis and to promote welfare and better social cohesion of a community.
