  • Using self-determination theory to assess the tourism service product at
           local level: the case of North Cyprus

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Nafiya Guden , Farzad Safaeimanesh
      Abstract: This study draws on self-determination theory (SDT) and describes a study that elucidates how motivation can be fostered in the local management context. The study aims to provide state and local officials with a decision-making tool that allows evaluation of the quantity and quality of the public services by using SDT to interact with locals and students. A qualitative approach and thematic analysis (TA) were used to find common themes and to develop an in-depth insight by gathering specific information from the point of view of local residents. In total, 19 interviews with locals were conducted using questions drawn from SDT. The study found that the most significant obstacles were autonomy, competence and relatedness to intrinsic and extrinsic factors such as managing budgets, provision of basic services such as waste management, accessibility and support for local non-government organisations and local festivals and lack of knowledge about sustainable tourism product development among local residents. Although there is growing knowledge related to environmental and social concern, the municipality's engagement level in this area is low. Hence, the study provides state and local officials with a decision-making tool to evaluate public services' quantity and quality through the SDT on locals and students, and it is significant to explain the application of SDT to the tourism service at the local level and its potential to develop sustainable tourism.

  • A unique destination and transportation: current issues and possible
           solutions

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Hale Özgit , Orhan Uludağ
      Abstract: The purpose of this study is twofold. First, to consider the ways in which transportation could be more sustainable in North Cyprus, which is mostly dependent on tourism and higher education as a small island destination. Second, to investigate current issues in the transportation sector related to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. This study employed a qualitative approach, and a descriptive analysis technique was used to analyse semi-structured interviews, conducted by telephone and face-to-face. To investigate current problems in the North Cyprus transportation sector – one of the most affected by the pandemic – travel agencies were chosen as the study’s population and research participants were selected purposively. The findings indicate that the unpredictability of domestic policies combined with the structural challenges confronting North Cyprus contribute to unsustainable current transportation policies. North Cyprus transport and tourism both suffered significant losses during the pandemic but travel agencies were disproportionately impacted. Our study results showed that exorbitant ticket prices, taxes and transportation costs have emerged as the most significant issues in the transportation sector. More efficient and accurate policies that meet the needs of the sector and give opportunity for development are required. This is a critical issue for policymakers to address, as they also represent a significant barrier to the sector's long-term competitiveness. To the best of the authors' knowledge, this is the first qualitative study to look at North Cyprus’ transportation problems from the perspective of travel agencies and the impact of the pandemic. It is thought that this study will contribute to the development of solutions for transportation problems and sustainable practices in small island developing states.

  • How to unlock the benefits of ecotourism: a case study of Karpaz, North
           Cyprus

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Ilkay Yorganci , Erol Emin
      Abstract: This research was motivated by the strong desire of the researchers to make an impact on the protection and conservation of the environment and to make recommendations to enhance sustainable ecotourism development in the Karpaz peninsula, North Cyprus. The aim of the research was first to assess the current challenges faced by those involved in ecotourism and sustainable practices and secondly to develop solutions for these challenges. Qualitative applied research was used with the objective of combining the concerns of local entrepreneurs with the knowledge of the members of the ecotourism associations and organisations to raise public awareness, empower locals, bring social change and improve the lives of the local community. Twenty in-depth interviews were conducted with ecotourism entrepreneurs, members of the Ecotourism Association, the Ecotourism Movement and the Karpaz Ecotourism Cooperative. The results showed that the main challenges faced were a lack of finance, a lack of support from the local and national governments and a lack of knowledge regarding ecotourism and sustainable development amongst members of the local community. The solutions are educating the local community about agri-ecotourism, putting pressure on local and national governments to support agri-ecotourism, getting other tourism associations such as tour operators on their side and setting up farming cooperatives for farmers. The value and originality of this study lie in the use of applied research approach with its social agenda of finding solutions which can be developed from the new knowledge which arises from the study.

  • Environmental regulations versus sustainable tourism indicators: a pathway
           to sustainable development

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Hale Özgit , İme Akanyeti
      Abstract: The purpose of this study was to profile the current state of sustainable tourism indicators (STIs) in order to assess risks and draw attention to potential solutions. A qualitative methodology and documentary analysis were used, and primary data were gathered about STIs from four publicly available regulatory documents. The study findings indicate that one of the primary impediments to sustainable tourism development is a lack of supervision and control over the enforcement of existing laws and regulations. Existing systems with relevant laws and regulations contribute to the fact that the environment is unsustainably developed because of the absence of specific explanations relating to STIs. The study identifies some of the actions that could be taken to mitigate the negative impacts of conventional forms of tourism development. This article argues that policymakers should act quickly to audit and manage the environment and that they should involve non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and the tourism industry in this process. In addition, regulations should be revisited to include the necessity of being certified by international bodies for tourism enterprises and adopting European Union (EU) environmental standards. The tourism industry must adopt a more responsible and participatory approach to economic growth in order to ensure sustainable tourism, learning from the global coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. Further, the industry must collaborate with policymakers to develop mechanisms to protect and control the resources they consume for the sake of future generations. Sustainable tourism development in which all aspects contribute to economic development, especially Small Island Developing States (SIDS), is of the utmost importance. No prior work seems to have been published that evaluates publicly available regulatory documents with reference to the current state of STIs in SIDS, especially in North Cyprus.

      Authors: Mehmet Bahri Saydam , Ali Ozturen , Cemal Kilic
      Abstract: Heritage tourism is vital to the preservation of cultural resources and economic growth and tourism can be utilized to protect and promote cultural heritage. However, if cultural heritage tourism is not developed following sustainable development principles, it can negatively affect a region's cultural legacy. This study aims to analyze expert opinion on sustainable heritage tourism in the geographical setting of North Cyprus. A qualitative method was used to conduct in-depth semi-structured face-to-face interviews with seven heritage tourism experts in North Cyprus. Theme analysis of the transcripts was undertaken and triangulated utilizing the automated content and thematic analysis capabilities of the Leximancer software program. The analysis revealed six themes in descriptions of sustainable cultural heritage tourism provided by the experts. These are “history”; “promotion”; “institutions”; “protection and maintenance”; “museums” and “technology”. This is one of the first studies to analyze the key aspects affecting the long-term viability of cultural heritage tourism in North Cyprus.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Hamed Rezapouraghdam , Habib Alipour , Hasan Kilic , Arash Akhshik
      Abstract: This study aims to identify the main facilitating factors in learning sustainable tourism development from the perspective of tourism students. An inductive qualitative approach was applied. Focus group data collection and content analysis were used to gather and interpret the data obtained from tourism students. Three major problems prevent tourism students from learning; consequently, three solutions emerged to encourage them to learn about sustainable tourism development. The problems are (1) the complexity of the topic, (2) the applicability of the subject and (3) pessimism about the future. The solutions are (1) implementable sustainable approaches/ideas for the future, (2) the learning process needs to combine field observation and creative approaches and (3) digital tools and video material should be integrated with the learning process. The presentation of sustainable tourism development for tourism students has received relatively limited attention in the literature. For Northern Cyprus as a study setting, this study is one of the first attempts to contribute to education for sustainable development and its implementation.

  • Can Blockchain technology help small islands achieve sustainable
           tourism' A perspective on North Cyprus

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Hale Özgit , Ahmet Adalıer
      Abstract: The purpose of this study is to explore the presence and use of Blockchain technologies (BCTs) in the North Cyprus hotel and tourism sectors by eliciting stakeholder perspectives on BCT's role in sustainable tourism development and the current state of its application in North Cyprus. A qualitative methodology was used and primary data gathered via telephone interviews with sixteen managers of casino hotels. The researchers also used an observation technique for data collection in order to better analyse the existing case situation. Although the findings show similarities in the stakeholders' awareness of cryptocurrencies, they lack overall knowledge of BCTs. The responses of participants indicate a lack of knowledge regarding the use of BCTs, particularly the areas in which they can be used. North Cyprus' tourism and hotel sectors are significantly behind the curve in terms of adopting innovative technologies, due to traditional operational concerns and to the limited scope of policy development. Policymakers should consider the practical implications for both the sector's and the country's resources in order to maximize environmental and financial gains. The promotion of sustainable tourism can be facilitated by the wider adoption of BCTs as it could enable operators to manage their network relationships and business operations in a more socially and environmentally responsible manner. No prior studies were found that evaluate the presence of BCTs in support of tourism development in North Cyprus. This study will assist practitioners in comprehending the practical implications and will enable policymakers to develop sector-specific policies.

  • How should small island developing states approach long-term sustainable
           development solutions' A thematic literature review

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Hale Özgit
      Abstract: This review article aims to outline the challenges that small island developing states (SIDS) face in developing long-term sustainability with particular reference to the implications for policymakers and tourism stakeholders who have to operate with limited resources. The study sought to determine how SIDS should develop and implement policies and plans for sustainable tourism through a thematic review of the literature. The data were gathered from previous studies that examined how SIDS should accomplish this. The findings indicate that the best approach for long-term sustainable tourism requires the development of a system for effective monitoring and policies that are implemented promptly through good governance. Developing sustainable tourism through quantifiable indicators has become critical given the growing need to understand the potential impacts of tourism development on destinations. This review also reveals that long-term sustainability of cultural resources can be achieved by compiling an inventory of existing tangible resources and involving stakeholders during the development phase to increase their attention and awareness of the critical nature of resource conservation. This review determines how SIDS should develop and implement policies and plan for sustainable tourism and how to mitigate the challenges associated with unsustainable conditions.

  • Conclusion: transitioning from unsustainable to sustainable solutions

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Ali Ozturen , Hale Ozgit
      Abstract: This theme issue aims to persuade practitioners and academics of the need to collaborate in support of sustainable development and to identify and implement solutions that enable sustainable tourism development in North Cyprus. The strategic question underlying this theme issue is as follows: transitioning from unsustainable to sustainable: what are the solutions for tourism industry stakeholders in North Cyprus' The key outcomes of this issue as they relate to the strategic question are reviewed, with particular reference to the contributions made to knowledge, policy and practice as well as the implications for future applied research concerning sustainable tourism development in North Cyprus and Small Island Developing States (SIDS) in general. Arising from the analysis and synthesis of recommendations, the following themes were proposed as critical concentration points for transitioning from unsustainable to sustainable in the North Cyprus tourism industry: the importance of sustainable tourism indicators (STIs), sustainable development through good governance, engaging cooperatives in urban areas for sustainable development, cultural heritage as a driving force for sustainable development, transportation as a tool for accessible and sustainable tourism, contemporary trends in technology for sustainable development and other factors that could facilitate sustainable tourism development. This article provides a narrative analysis of the findings and makes recommendations for consideration by politicians and tourist industry executives. The solutions include advancing sustainable tourism practices through technology and increasing policymakers' and tourism stakeholders' consciousness. This paper and the collection of articles on which it is based are the first to examine various academic and practitioner approaches to solutions that would help to address the challenges arising and then facilitate sustainable tourism in North Cyprus.

  • Hotel general managers’ quality of life and its impact on
           organisational sustainability and corporate social responsibility
           initiatives

      Authors: Nivesh Bhagtani
      Abstract: The objectives of the study are to assess the application of corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives in three hotel companies of similar standing by interviewing the unit general managers and to analyse the well-being of the three general managers and explore if their CSR initiatives align with the dimensions of quality of life and well-being. The article concludes with a review of the likely impact of employee well-being on the concept of the circular economy and overall sustainability. Explores the potential relationship between the well-being of hotel general managers and its impact on the CSR initiatives of their hotels, three luxury hotels located in Dubai, Portugal and India provide case study examples. The hotels are similar in size and scale of operations and are positioned as leisure hotels. All three hotels have a workforce of 300–400 employees on permanent contracts with an additional 150–200 on temporary contracts. This is indicative of the significant responsibilities of general managers in fostering well-being in the workplace. Findings suggest that a hotel general manager’s own well-being does not necessarily translate into high levels of CSR activity at the unit level. However, case study analysis of the three hotels seems to indicate a correlation between enhanced sustainable initiatives and competitive advantage that is advantageous for the businesses. Using a combination of the positive emotion, engagement, relationships, meaning, achievement (PERMA) well-being profiler and three in-depth interviews, this study examines the relationship between well-being, as measured by PERMA, CSR practices, and awareness of CSR implementation. In addition, the potential role of the circular economy is considered in fostering hospitality for employee well-being.

      Abstract: The objective of the study is to investigate whether hospitality leaders feel there is a circular economy (CE) created through corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives and whether these initiatives improve quality of work life (QWL) for employees. A qualitative, case study approach was adopted which included a set of standardized questions as a discussion tool to explore senior hospitality professionals' perceptions of their companies' CSR initiatives and connection between CSR and QWL. A series of interview questions consisting of seven open-ended questions and four Likert-type scale questions were formulated to explore how the representatives from case study companies implement CSR initiatives in the workplace. The questions were also used to probe the impact of CSR initiatives on QWL for employees and additionally, respondent views on aspects of the CE. Examines the impact of hospitality and tourism on the environment and also its employee retention challenges. Interviews conducted with three managers reveal awareness of the potential QWL benefits of CSR practices. Findings suggest that successful, on-the-ground practice involves adapting corporate principles for each property. The article showcases three interviews with senior employees from different properties in different world regions. The aim being to probe, how they approach their CSR strategies and the impact on QoL. While there is much interest in these issues, comparatively little has been published to-date on the relationships between CSR and QoL.

      Abstract: The purpose of this study is to examine how quality-of-life (QoL) provisions can be integrated with the corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives of hospitality firms and the influence of CSR initiatives on quality of working life (QWL) and the circular economy. The article outlines the core characteristics of CSR and QoL and how they relate to hospitality industry settings. These theoretical underpinnings are then used to examine the practices of Hoshino Resort Tomamu, Japan and the findings of several similar case study applications: the Hoshino Resort group, Intercontinental Jordan; Sheraton Amman Al Nabil hotel and towers and Hotel Casa de Palmela. Sustainability has become the primary agenda for many nations globally and the hospitality industry can significantly impact sustainability outcomes. Among the strategies that have been used by firms to promote sustainability is CSR. However, prior studies have primarily focused on CSR activities in manufacturing and production and often on external stakeholders. Recent research reveals the importance of internal stakeholders – employees – in promoting sustainability. Comparatively little has been published about the deployment of CSR initiatives in hospitality settings – especially in relation to the impact that these initiatives have on thinking about quality of work life, quality of life and the circular economy. This article explores the linkages with reference to hotel and resort company applications.

  • What is the role of place attachment and quality of life outcomes in
           employee retention'

      Authors: Patrick Anthony Finocchiaro
      Abstract: Maintaining human capital in the hotel industry is challenging due to high turnover. Through the implementation of circular economy theory, hotels are finding that human capital retention can be achieved via Quality of Life (QOL) outcomes by providing Corporate Social Resposibility (CSR) initiatives in the employee brand experience that focus on “place” attachment. The approach is qualitative and three interviews were conducted with professionals from luxury hotels. The results were then compiled for each interview to determine whether QOL outcomes were in fact experienced by the interviewee in their designated hotel company. Based on the interviews, all three hotels do incorporate CSR initiatives that focus on “place” attachment. Consequently, employees experience QOL outcomes that result in their retention within the hotel company. An issue that hotels face is employee turnover. However, with experience-driven human capital management, retention can be achieved by ensuring that QOL outcomes are properly incorporated into the employee brand experience. In so doing, hotels can ensure that employees are engaged in their surrounding “place” through CSR initiatives that attach them to the local area.

  • Corporate social responsibility and work–life balance provisions for
           employee quality of life in hospitality and tourism settings

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Dimitrios Diamantis , Ruth Puhr
      Abstract: This study aims to outline the rationale for the theme issue question and introduces articles written by MBA students at Les Roches Global Hospitality Education, Switzerland. The issue provides best practice examples of corporate social responsibility in hospitality settings and explores the outcomes and implications for employee quality of life. This study provides a descriptive review of the theme issue approach and the ways in which industry case study examples have been integrated with a review of literature to analyse the ways in which corporate social responsibility initiatives are increasingly focusing on work–life balance and quality of life considerations. During their analysis and case study research, the MBA group found that the provision for quality of life outcomes has been enhanced in recent years by hospitality and tourism firms, and that since the onset of the pandemic, momentum has been building. Yet, a bigger and more complex question relates to work–life balance – a critical component of quality of life outcomes – and whether it is transferable to society as a whole. The aim of this theme issue is to explore the linkages between work–life balance, corporate social responsibility and the concept of circular economic thinking and how this impacts on quality of life. The authors argue that by better understanding these relationships, it is possible to contribute to the longer-term goal of sustainability and sustainable development. In part, this is because work life provisions are not only applicable at the micro level (firms) but also at the macro level (society), the latter through enhanced focus on circular economic thinking and practice.

      Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to look at the current and future role of corporate social responsibility (CSR) to see how it could be used more effectively by hospitality companies. The article examines the “Food with Integrity” initiative of Chipotle Mexican Grills Inc. and similar approaches being implemented by Club Med resorts and the LIFT program, composed of multiple grants aimed at empowering underserved youth interested in aviation, at Alaska Airlines to illustrate the importance of both large- and small-scale strategies in achieving quality of life (QoL). This paper opens with a review of the historical, current and future context of CSR and its application in hospitality industry settings. Additionally, three case study examples are used to portray the evolving role of CSR in hospitality companies. The findings of this paper show that CSR initiatives in hospitality settings must advance in order to embrace the concept of social justice for all employees and other company stakeholders. This is a challenging objective to set but it would enable CSR initiatives and QoL outcomes to improve. It is the first time that the three features case studies (Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc., Club Med and Alaska Airlines) are considered together, analyzed and compared in order to demonstrate the different aspects of effective CSR in hospitality settings.

  • Macro- and micro-level connections between work–life balance, quality of
           life and circular economic thinking as drivers of sustainability

      Authors: Dimitrios Diamantis , Ruth Puhr
      Abstract: This study aims to summarize and review the contributions made to the theme issue and observe that synergistic relationships between micro and macro levels of corporate social responsibility initiatives are needed to enable quality of life measures to be embedded in circular economic thinking and practice. This study reviews the contributions made by each article in the theme issue with reference to case study examples of contemporary corporate social responsibility initiatives implemented in hospitality and tourism settings. This theme issue sought to showcase how work–life balance provisions help to stabilize employee turnover, and that further to this, quality of life enhancements via corporate social responsibility initiatives at the micro or company level can stimulate circular economic strategies at the macro or societal level. This can play a key role in securing the Sustainable Development Goals, especially Goal number 3 (good health and well-being). This summary argues that enhanced corporate social responsibility initiatives could shorten the journey to sustainability by focusing on improving societal and personal levels of quality of life. Only then will work–life balance measurements become more transferable from micro to macro perspectives through circular economic thinking and action. Hence, it is clear that work–life provisions are powerful drivers in the journey toward sustainability.

      Authors: Zhiwei Su , Aleksander Zabilski
      Abstract: The study investigates the relationship between quality of work life (QWL), work–life balance (WLB) and quality of life (QoL), with reference to corporate social responsibility (CSR) approaches used at the Shangri-La, B&B and Rui hotel companies. The study draws on the literature and on comparative case study analysis of three very different companies. The findings indicate that CSR practices have a positive impact on QoL, regardless of company size, location or type of initiative, and that they underline the importance of education as a key to success. This article concentrates on the concept of QoL and explores different applications of the idea in various environments.

      Abstract: The study compares the corporate social responsibility (CSR) actions of two sectors of hospitality, tourism and travel (hotels and airlines) by researching what Six Sense hotels (a hotel brand) and Air Canada (an airline company) have been doing in order to respond to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and how they apply the concept of CSR in their operational activities. The article also considers how these activities align with quality-of-life (QoL) dimensions and contemporary CSR dimensions. Provides a detailed comparative, case study analysis of the reported CSR practices of companies in different sectors of the hospitality and tourism industry based on competitive strategy; environmental protection; internationalization of CSR; and transparency and accountability. The impact of the varied initiatives on quality of work life (QWL) and QoL is also considered together with implications for the circular economy (CE). Analysis of the two case study examples suggests that these companies' activities are designed to promote sustainability. The findings also suggest that there is a positive relationship between CSR activities and QoL that the case study companies are aware of this and are doing all they can to sustain this relationship given the benefits it yields. Uses case study analysis of Six Senses Hotels Resorts & Spas and Air Canada to conduct a comparative analysis of the reported CSR practices of companies in different tourism sectors based on competitive strategy; environmental protection; internationalization of CSR; and transparency and accountability.

      Authors: Jenny Zheng
      Abstract: Employees in the hospitality industry have to adapt to a fast-paced and rapidly changing environment. Furthermore, employees must be able to handle a high volume of work and be willing to work long hours. In this context, the question is how can people work and cope with the pressures of hospitality businesses and at the same time, improve their QoL' Outlines the various theories of corporate social responsibility (CSR) and reviews the meaning of the term quality of life (QoL). Thereafter, the article analyses three examples of hospitality companies (Radisson, Scandic and Peninsula Hotels) that have implemented CSR practices and the extent to which they align with the dimensions of QoL. Concludes that well-conceived, multidimensional corporate social responsibility (CSR) strategies, combined with transparent reporting tend to enhance employee job satisfaction and quality of work life (QWL). It draws on the literature and case study examples from three companies with a reputation for sustainable thinking and practice. Currently the links between CSR, QWL and QoL are not well understood, nor the role of CSR initiatives in achieving QoL outcomes and so the paper adds value by providing an explanation of QoL, CSR linked to case study examples.
