      Abstract: La Responsabilidad Social Empresarial se define como la relación audible de la organización con los valores éticos, que dan sentido humano al desempeño, equilibrando el crecimiento económico y el bienestar social con una imagen corporativa positiva al implementar el bienestar institucional y garantizar su permanencia y consolidación en el ámbito empresarial y en el entorno comunitario. La formación de valores éticos y de responsabilidad social empresarial desde la universidad es un reto de este contexto educativo, evaluado como análisis sistémico y crítico expresión del desempeño organizacional corporativo, abordado desde la deontología, los factores morales que guían la conducta humana y el comportamiento de las personas jurídicas, transferidos a un actuar modificable al cumplimiento de las exigencias sociales. Las empresas no son organizaciones filantrópicas, su génesis y teleología están encaminadas a producir rentabilidad, el interés de lucro es quien las mueve a la actuación, la responsabilidad social empresarial y la dimensión ética intervienen para producir un cambio de paradigma, crea, maximiza y trasforma el interés de un grupo en utilidad universalizable que cree beneficios para todos al reforzar el bienestar general.PALABRAS CLAVE: Ética; Responsabilidad Social Empresarial; Economía; formación universitaria.ETHICS, CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY AND PROFESSIONAL TRAININGABSTRACTCorporate Social responsibility is defined as audible relationship of the organization with the ethical values that give human consciousness to the performance, balancing economic growth and social welfare with a corporate image positive when implementing the institutional welfare and ensure its permanence and consolidation in the business field and in the community environment. The formation of ethical values and corporate social responsibility from the University is a challenge of this educational context, evaluated as systemic analysis and critical expression of corporate organizational performance, approached from the ethics, moral factors that guide human behavior and the behavior of legal persons, transferred to a modifiable Act in compliance with the social demands. Firms are not philanthropic organizations, its genesis and teleology are aimed at producing profitability, the interest of profit is who moves them to action, corporate social responsibility and the ethical dimension involved to produce a paradigm shift, creates, maximizes and transforms the interest of a group in a universalizable utility which creates benefits for all to enhance the general welfare.KEYWORDS: Ethics; Corporate Social responsibility; economy; University education.

      Abstract: Los emprendimientos correspondientes a pequeñas y medianas empresas (PYMES) representan más de la mitad de los puestos de trabajo formales en el mundo. En el Ecuador la realidad no es diferente, los emprendedores constituyen un pilar estratégico para el crecimiento y el desarrollo económico del país; con la instrumentación del Plan Nacional para el Buen Vivir 2009-2013, se propone el establecimiento de un sistema económico, social, solidario y sostenible, propiciando la sistematización de estudios relacionados con estas PYMES en la búsqueda de alternativas para su inserción a las cadenas productivas, la transformación de la matriz productiva y la sustitución estratégica de importaciones. En el cantón Quevedo, la proliferación de estos emprendimientos, le han permitido convertirse en el principal centro comercial de la Provincia de los Ríos, haciendo necesario analizar los motivos por los cuales, las políticas públicas implementadas por el Gobierno Autónomo Descentralizado del Cantón, han sido insuficientes para solucionar los problemas que frenan el desarrollo de un gran número de pymes quevedeñas. Este estudio tiene como objetivo conocer los elementos que caracterizan la situación actual de la PYMES en el cantón Quevedo, mediante una revisión bibliográfica de los estudios más relevantes realizados por la academia y por la administración pública, se observa que no existen suficientes condiciones para garantizar el éxito de las mismas y las comunidades donde se encuentran.PALABRAS CLAVE: Caracterización de las pymes; Emprendimiento, Innovación; Productividad; Competitividad.SITUATIONAL DIAGNOSIS OF SME ENTREPRENEURS AS A STRATEGIC RESOURCE OF ECONOMIC GROWTHABSTRACTBusiness initiatives from small and medium companies (SMCs) contribute to more than half of the formal jobs in the world. Ecuador is not very different, where entrepreneurs constitute a strategic pillar that provides the country with effective solutions to growth and economic development; with the introduction of the 2009-2013 National Plan for Good Living, it is proposed the implementation of an economic, social, supportive, and sustainable system that promotes the systematization of studies related to these SMCs in the search for alternatives for their insertion into the productive chain, the transformation of the output matrix and the strategic substitution of imports. In Quevedo canton, the proliferation of these enterprises has allowed this city to become the main trading center of the Province of Los Ríos, making it necessary to analyze the reasons for the ineffectiveness of the public policies implemented by the Decentralized Autonomous Government of the Canton in solving the problems that hinder the development of a large number of small and medium-sized enterprises. This study aims to know the elements that characterize the current situation of SMCs in Quevedo canton through a literature review of the most relevant studies conducted by the academia and government agencies. It is observed that there are not sufficient conditions to guarantee the success of SMCs and their communities where they are locatedKEYWORDS: Characterization PYMES, Entrepreneurship, Innovation; Productivity; Competitiveness.

      Abstract: El presente estudio pretende analizar la aplicación de la Norma ISO 26000:2010, como guía básica en el campo de la responsabilidad social corporativa. Para ello se presenta un marco conceptual referente a esta herramienta organizacional como estrategia de desarrollo empresarial sostenido. La misma prioriza la obligación de las empresas para generar cambios sustanciales y significativos mediante el cumplimiento de procedimientos administrativos legales en el entorno humano, económico y ambiental. La metodología utilizada es documental, bibliográfica y explicativa. Esta permite ilustrar la aplicabilidad en las empresas de la norma indicada, la misma que de acuerdo con los resultados aún no alcanza su aplicabilidad integral de bienestar social, laboral y comunitario, denotándose falta de compromiso que evidencie ser una organización ética e integralmente responsable que promueva desarrollo empresarial sostenible.PALABRAS CLAVE: ISO 26000:2010; Responsabilidad Social Empresarial; bienestar social; desarrollo económico; desarrollo ambiental.CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY GUIDE: ISO 26000: 2010 STANDARD, ORGANIZATIONAL CHALLENGE FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENTABSTRACTThis study aims to analyze the application of ISO 26000: 2010, as a basic guide in the field of corporate social responsibility.

      Abstract: El sistema de tres pilares ha sido introducido con éxito en distintos países. Si bien implementado, junto con otras reformas, permite reducir la carga del estado en materia de pensiones y otorgar crecimiento económico. A más de cambios en el largo plazo de las tasas de ahorro, en las modificaciones que conlleva tanto en el mercado laboral como en la productividad total de factores, la componente principal de cambio y mejoría debería darse en el mercado financiero. En la mayoría de casos se observa una mayor profundización financiera, con particular beneficio para las necesidades de endeudamiento externo de las empresas y para las necesidades de liquidez de los títulos públicos. En segundo lugar, los fondos de pensiones, con el objetivo de diversificar sus portafolios, son muy importantes en los países en desarrollo como Ecuador porqué pueden participar a proyectos de inversión como las infraestructuras. El presente trabajo consiste entonces en un análisis teórico sobre la presunta factibilidad y necesidad de una reforma del sistema de pensiones que pueda contribuir al crecimiento económico en este país.PALABRAS CLAVE: sistema de pensiones; fondos privados; previdencia social; inversiones; crecimiento económico.THE THREE PILLARS PENSION SYSTEM FOR ECONOMIC GROWTH IN ECUADORABSTRACTThe three-pillar system has been successfully introduced in different countries. Although implemented, along with other reforms, it reduces the state's burden on pensions and provides economic growth. In addition to changes in the long-term saving rates, changes in both the labor market and total factor productivity, the main component of change and improvement should occur in the financial market. In most cases, there is a greater financial deepening, with particular benefit to the external indebtedness needs of companies and to the liquidity needs of public securities. Secondly, pension funds, with the aim of diversifying their portfolios, are very important in developing countries such as Ecuador, because they can participate in investment projects like infrastructure. The present work consists in a theoretical analysis on the presumed feasibility and necessity of a reform of the pension system that can contribute to the economic growth in this country.KEYWORDS: pension system; private funds; social security; investments; economic growth.

      Abstract: La superación pedagógica está dirigida a mejorar el desempeño profesional de los docentes, así como a desarrollar competencias que le permitan incidir positivamente en el perfeccionamiento continuo del proceso de enseñanza aprendizaje en las universidades. Sin embargo aún persisten dificultades en los docentes en cuento al dominio de métodos didácticos y educativos, así como procedimientos que limitan la función metodológica, orientadora y educativa que debe desempeñar el docente universitario. Es por ello que este trabajo propone como objetivo fundamentar la necesidad de potenciar el desarrollo de las competencias pedagógicas de los docentes universitarios sustentada en el papel orientador que desempeña el docente como mediador del proceso de enseñanza - aprendizaje. A través del mismo se revela la importancia del papel que desempeña la superación pedagógica en la elevación de la calidad del aprendizaje y la formación integral del estudiante universitario, así como la necesidad de formar a los profesionales de la Educación Superior en herramientas didácticas y educativas encaminadas que les permita desde la dirección del proceso docente educativo modificar modos de comportamientos y actitudes ante el estudio de los estudiantes. Se propone una alternativa pedagógica que favorezca la orientación profesional de los docentes de la Universidad Técnica de Manabí.PALABRAS CLAVE: Superación pedagógica; desempeño profesional; superación profesional; competencias pedagógicas; orientación profesional.THE PEDAGOGICAL EDUCATION OF THE UNIVERSITY TEACHER: A NEED FOR POSTGRADUATE OVERCOMINGABSTRACTPedagogical improvement is aimed at improving the professional performance of teachers, as well as developing competencies that allow them to positively influence the continuous improvement of the teaching-learning process in universities. However, there are still difficulties in teachers regarding the mastery of didactic and educational methods, as well as procedures that limit the methodological, guiding and educational function that should be performed by university teachers. For this reason, this paper proposes to support the development of the pedagogical competences of university teachers based on the guiding role of the teacher as mediator of the teaching - learning process. It reveals the importance of the role played by pedagogical improvement in raising the quality of learning and the integral training of university students, as well as the need to train Higher Education professionals in educational and educational tools aimed at That allows them from the direction of the educational process to modify modes of behavior and attitudes to the study of students.

      Abstract: Los ámbitos profesionales de la medicina y en especial de la enfermería, también se han visto influenciados por los aspectos de la tecnología, es muy común ver como las enfermeras utilizan chat para reservar citas médicas, para brindar ayuda médica, también los blogs posibilitan trabajar como buzones de sugerencia que evalúen la calidad del servicio brindado por una entidad de salud. De toda esta modernidad surge una inquietud, ¿la carrera de enfermería está dotando a sus estudiantes y docentes con estas competencias digitales', para obtener la respuesta a esta pregunta se ha investigado a las alumnas y a los docentes de la Carrera en aspectos relacionados al uso de las diferentes herramientas tecnológicas. La investigación arrojó resultados negativos, es decir en porcentajes elevados se pudo incluir que no se utilizan estos elementos, también se pudo determinar que los docentes no disponen de niveles adecuados de manejo de herramientas informáticas. Una vez contestada la pregunta y cuya respuesta en negativa, se procede a plantear una serie de estrategias para que los docentes y las alumnas de enfermería adquieran competencias relacionadas con el manejo de los diferentes elementos de la web 2.0 en actividades relacionadas con su aspecto laboral para que en base a ello logren la adquisición de la competencia digital requeridaPALABRAS CLAVE: Competencia digital; enfermería; tecnología; Web 2.0.DIGITAL COMPETENCIES IN THE 21ST CENTURY NURSE.

      Abstract: La investigación tuvo como objetivo la evaluación de la diversidad arbórea en el periodo 2011-2016 en la zona alta de la sub-cuenca del Carrizal- Manabí- Ecuador. Una vez identificadas las especies arbóreas se estableció sus atributos como especies sucedáneas considerando los criterios valor ecológico y estratégico para la conservación, elemento cultural o desarrollo de los habitantes y factor de riesgo asociado al taxón de las especies arbóreas identificadas. Para medir la diversidad arbórea se aplicaron transectos, muestreos, claves taxonómicas, que permitieron identificar género, especie y familia, fortalecidos con el conocimiento de investigadores, especialistas y herbarios y fortalecido con la experiencia de los habitantes de esta sub-cuenca, para evaluar la diversidad arbórea se utilizó los índices de biodiversidad Shannon-Weaver, Simpson y el de Equidad de Pielou. Se encontraron un total de 1258 individuos representados en 23 familias arbóreas, 38 géneros y 39 especies. El tipo de especie sucedánea seleccionada fue la “clave” Los atributos enlistados fueron (valor de uso, conservación de otras especies y pérdidas de especies en el periodo de estudio). Se seleccionó como especies arbóreas claves a cuatro especies consideradas de prioridad alta: Castilla elástica, Tabebuia crysantha, Cedrela fissilis y Tabebuia chrysotricha, dos son consideradas de baja prioridad Trema michranta y Baccharis salicifolia, y 33 de las especies identificadas son de prioridad media.PALABRAS CLAVE: Diversidad arbórea; valor de uso; valor ecológico, extinción; microcuenca del río Carrizal.EVALUATION OF ARBOREAL DIVERSITY FOR THE SELECTION OF SUB-BASIN OF THE CARRIZAL SUB-BASIN REFORESTATION SPECIESABSTRACTThe research highlights the attributes of the substitute arboreal species, considering the ecological and strategic value for the conservation of tree species in the high areas of the sub-basin of the Carrizal-Manabí-Ecuador. Its objective was the evaluation of tree diversity, period 2011-2016. To measure its diversity transects, samplings, taxonomic keys were applied, which allowed to identify gender, species and family, with the knowledge of researchers, specialists and herbaria. To assess the site with the greatest diversity of trees, biodiversity indices and equity index were applied using the Shannon-Weaver, Simpson and Equidad de Pielou indices. Obtaining the results of surrogate species was based on the characteristics of the type of "key" surrogate species. A total of 1258 individuals were found represented in 23 families, 38 genera and 39 species. With regard to the selection of substitute species of arboreal biodiversity, it promotes the conservation of ecosystems and specific habitats of other species, importance as an emblematic species, which is endangered (P) of extinction and is phylogenetically unique, or endemic. Key tree species Tabebuia chrysotricha, Tababuia crysantha, Elastic Castilla, Cedrela Fissili were selected as having high attributes in relation to use value, ecological value and conservation, two are considered of low priority Trema michranta and Baccharis salicifolia, and 33 of the species identified are of medium priority.KEYWORDS: Arboreal diversity; use value; ecological value; extinction; micro-basin of the Carrizal River.
