  • Operational risk management in the postal sector: A case study of a
           developing country
    • Abstract

      The Tunisian Post is a multi-business organization and operates in a changing environment; it faces risks, internal or external. The Tunisian Post has taken a step in this new area of expertise, which is reflected in the establishment of an Operational Risk Management Unit. The main purpose of this article is to present the first experience of the Tunisian Post in this area of expertise. A survey was conducted by the risk management unit (RMU) on a sample of 65 postal offices in the period between 2015 and 2017. The survey covers almost all of the Tunisian territory. A database containing all the probable risks was sent to the post managers at the regional level to give their assessment in terms of frequency and impact of each type of risk on their structures. More than 40 executives and employees at the regional and central levels participated in the brainstorming for the development of recommendations and the establishment of a road map. The results showed that the risks related to IT risks are more frequent and critical, which can deter the quality of the services at the regional level. Despite the increasing attention to risk management in the public sector, more research is required, especially in the postal sector. Operational risk management is the unrevealed black box (Bracci, Tallaki, Gobbo, & Papi, 2021). So, this paper presents a practical and professional manner to analyze better the entities' function at the regional level.

      Abstract

      The major research question of this study is how boards of directors can monitor human resource reporting, especially with emerging reporting requirements from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for all domestic and foreign public companies listed on U.S. stock exchanges. Boards can develop advising and monitoring practices to help their companies meet the SEC's human capital reporting requirements, as shown by the following topics discussed and analyzed in this paper: criticisms of the modernization of Regulation S-K by using principle-based versus rules-based disclosures; a way forward on the modernization of Regulation S-K; sustainability accounting standards; human resource accounting; board responsibility for white-collar crime risk; and collegiality conundrums. We find that a possible way forward in modernizing human capital reporting would be to combine a rules-based approach with a principles-based approach. We recommend boards to closely follow the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals and create opportunities to steer their companies towards a sustainable future. We also research the newly developed accounting standards to address human resource risks and promote sustainable human capital reporting. In addition, we identify the strategies for boards to monitor the risk of white-collar crime and highlight the balance between collegiality and effectiveness in the boardroom. Future research could use case studies and interviews of company boards to investigate how they have developed strategies and procedures to facilitate human resource management and reporting.

      Abstract

      This article analyzes conflicts between principals that led to activism by one large Brazilian government-owned investor as a minority shareholder and verifies the antecedents, means employed, apparent motivations, and effectiveness of its reactions (Goranova & Ryan, 2014). It examines the cases of three large high ownership concentration listed companies using solely public sources. Poor performance was a frequent conflict antecedent. No evident trade-off between activism and corporate governance (CG) practices emerged. High ownership concentration influenced the way the investor reacted and its success because opposition through internal CG mechanisms was usually not successful and led to legal proceedings. The limitations of the regulatory framework became evident from the mixed outcomes of these proceedings. The investor was not exclusively financially motivated and it occasionally opposed the interests of other minority shareholders to follow government policy. These findings illustrated how high ownership concentration rendered difficult the mitigation of principal-principal conflicts even for a large government-owned investor and help explain the failure of previous econometric studies to relate activism, quality of CG practices and performance (Young, Peng, Ahlstrom, Bruton, & Jiang, 2008).

      Abstract

      A blended learning culture is both a challenge and opportunity under post-COVID-19 for knowledge transfer and sustainable development, with the aim of maintaining social distancing policy and social interaction among learners, teachers, and invited industry guest speakers. In this paper, we review documents in blended learning from Asia, America, and Europe with the key elements in blended learning for faculty development in higher education (HE) institutions. The objective was to identify the key elements in blended learning with innovations and research technology capabilities for a way normal of learning and teaching under COVID-19. Based on the qualitative results of NVivo, it has been identified that the key elements of blended learning are: 1) technology for projects and 2) technology for engagement. These two elements are proposed to relate to Kolb's experiential learning cycle of active experiment and concrete experience and reflective observation of the new learning experience for sustainable development.

  • Harking the holonomic of public-private partnerships: A sounding of
           McNamara's World Bank
    • Abstract

      Public policy is analysis and synthesis. Yet communication straddles the two. The depth of analysis and rigour of synthesis is in tension with the efficacy of communication. Consequently, a strong policy requires a holonomic space that reduces tension. This paper illuminates that argument. It is a contrasted case study of two policy perspectives on Africa, motivated by the concept of public-private partnerships (PPP). The paper contrasts the nexus of Robert McNamara in the late sixties with the zeitgeist of the infrastructure gap at the unfolding of the new millennium. That contrast illuminates Africa's failure to capture the fundamentals of PPP. Africa sees PPP as a subject of finance, not efficiency. The concept has been reduced to a yawning gap in finance. And a key reason for that myopic view is that banner called infrastructure gap. That flaw reflects not just weakness in the agency of policy. It also yearns for a holonomic space of policy. McNamara benefitted from the post-war space. After this paper was drafted, COVID-19 struck the world. This pandemic offers space for Africa (and the world) to mould thrusts of policy comparable to McNamara's nexus.

  • Effect of financial leverage on shareholder's returns in a dynamic
           business environment
    • Abstract

      Modigliani and Miller's (1963) paper made revelations on the importance of leverage in reducing tax payment obligations. Shareholders' return may affect the risk premium associated with the use of leverage. However, the literature on leverage and shareholder returns relationships for a dynamic business environment such as Nigeria is still growing. The one-step differenced generalised method of moments (GMM) estimator is used in analysing an unbalanced panel data of 18 insurance firms for the period 2008-2017. The data used are gleaned from the annual reports of the sampled insurance companies. Results showed that the debt ratio has a significant negative effect on shareholders' returns. However, the results become positive and significant when debt-equity and interest coverage ratios are used as the leverage ratio. This study supports the pecking order theory. It concluded that the effect of financial leverage on shareholders' returns depends largely on the decomposition of financial leverage; hence both theories examined are relevant. This study recommended, among other things, that there is a need for the management of insurance companies to reassess the costs and risks associated with financial leverage when financing decisions have to be made. Furthermore, high indebtedness should be trimmed to reduce its negative influence on shareholders' returns by ensuring an appropriate finance option, which will be in accordance to maximise shareholders' wealth.

  • Human resource management in public-private partnership organisations: A
           review
    • Abstract

      The proliferating phenomenon of public-private partnership (PPP) in public service provision continues to lay a firm foundation for the growth of organizations of hybrid character (van Gestel, Denis, & Ferlie, 2020). Unfortunately, the effects of such organizational arrangements on critical management practices remain underexplored (Berman, 2012). Analytically focusing on purpose-based taxonomy of practices including hiring, training, compensation, and employment relations (Chuang, Chen, & Chuang, 2013), this paper theoretically explores the possible implications of the PPP modality on human resource management (HRM) practice at the organizational level. Thirteen (13) critical propositions are delineated from interpretively intersecting extant knowledge from PPP and HRM strands of literature. In essence, the analysis suggests a) the high dependence of HRM practice and decision-making on the structural and institutional context, b) the necessity for more agility, characterized by adaptability and dynamism, and c) the need for a changed management competence profile of practitioners focusing on strategic and integrative skills sets in a PPP organization context. The paper advances the propositions as important insights for practitioners and as potent directions for further research.

      Abstract

      The key research question of this paper is to explore the major implications for corporate governance from the emergence and perspective of passive investors. Passive investors care more about long-term governance practices than short-term financial metrics. They do not trade shares when accounting balances or stock prices fluctuate since they have a long-term perspective. They desire a new investor relations approach, based upon independent directors discussing key corporate governance topics of board refreshment, sustainability, and compensation with the stewardship officers of passive investors. Thus, financial accounting is moving back to a stewardship purpose of accounting versus an investment valuation model. The corporate governance literature relating to investors has only focused on active, not passive, investors. The emergence and perspective of passive investors are relevant for updating the theory and practice of corporate governance as follows. Passive investors have a long-term sustainability perspective, not a short-term focus to make financial analysts' quarterly predictions. Passive investors focus upon three board of directors' committees: nominating, audit, and compensation, with emphasis on a stewardship officer, a lead director, board refreshment, an indefinite investment horizon, and sustainability risks.

  • Repressed banking industry: The context of emerging market
    • Abstract

      The present paper uses a qualitative approach with data obtained from secondary sources on the sequence and timing of financial liberalization in Ethiopia. The approach is purely qualitative, which simply examines the sequence of financial sector liberalization measures introduced in Ethiopia between 1992 and 2014. The study aims to identify the financial sector liberalization measures introduced and critically evaluate the timing and sequence of these programs implemented in Ethiopia. In light of documented empirical findings, it was found that the financial liberalization programme in Ethiopia was not properly and timely sequenced, and as a result, the Ethiopian financial sector has remained underdeveloped when compared to sub-Saharan African standards and its neighbouring countries. The regulatory fences, especially the restriction of foreign bank entry, should be seriously reconsidered and such fences shall be soon uprooted and steps towards the establishment of the financial market should be taken.

  • Governance structure and cost of debt
    • Abstract

      The purpose of this paper is to examine if creditors take account of the firm's governance attributes to decide the cost of debt. Using a sample of 486 US firms over the period 1998-2017, we synthesized governance in six factorial axes. We have demonstrated that the quality audit (independence, frequency of meetings, auditor's reputation, there is a charter) and financial expertise (percentage of financial experts and ownership of institutional investors) are informative tools creditors that provide information on the quality and reliability of financial reporting. They affect negatively and significantly the cost of debt. Moreover, creditors appreciate the presence of independent directors on the board and reduce the cost of debt required. Furthermore, the independence of the nomination and compensation committees prove irrelevant attributes of governance perspective because creditors do not reduce their risk of the agency. However, the attributes of the board (the size, the number of meetings, the existence of specialized committees, and meetings) are misunderstood by creditors that will increase the interest rate. In addition, the cost of debt increases with the concentration of managerial ownership and majority shareholders. Similarly, attributes reflecting the managerial entrenchment (duality of CEO tenure) are positively correlated to the cost of debt.

      Abstract

      The purpose of this study is to examine the intellectual capital efficiency of football clubs in the UEFA Champion League between 2010 and 2019. We measure the intellectual capital efficiency of each football club through Value Added Intellectual Coefficient (VAIC) method developed by Pulic (1998, 2004), Ghosh and Mondal (2009), Yalama (2013), Ozkan, Cakan, and Kayacan (2017). Using a sample of 10 football clubs from 7 countries, we find that almost all clubs use their intellectual capital efficiently with great coefficients. We also document that human capital, as the core of intellectual capital, has a positive impact on structural capital. Our finding is significant for sports managers to make strategic management of intellectual sources to create value in the football industry. It suggests that football clubs should pay more attention to intellectual capital like fan loyalty and talented players. Meanwhile, it helps the sports industry to play a great role of human capital in intellectual capital and to increase the competitive advantage of the enterprise.

  • Corporate governance and business ethics: Evidence from a sample of
           Algerian corporations
    • Abstract

      Corporate governance systems are developed to govern corporations, build trust and create sustainable value for all stakeholders. Paradoxically, in spite of massive efforts in developing governance systems, corporate scandals are persisting. Different studies have strongly recommended business ethics as a solution to this paradox. Thus, this study explores if business ethics supports corporate governance practices in a sample of Algerian corporations. The study used a mixed methodology; qualitative: since this subject is poorly addressed in the Algerian context that requires an exploratory study. Quantitative by developing a structural model demonstrating the relationship between business ethics and corporate governance, Data for the study were collected by means of a questionnaire distributed on an anonymous basis to corporations' senior managers in Sidi Bel Abbes district. Treatment of collected data is done using two types of analysis: the structural equations modeling approach by using the PLS Path approach (PLS Path Modeling) and linear regression. The study finds out that business ethics leads to better levels of corporate governance and supports its practices; and the reason is mainly due to an implicit involuntary commitment to laws as a minimum required level of compliance, and that the protection of stakeholders' rights are the most important corporate governance's dimension affected by business ethics.

      Keywords: Business Ethics, Corporate Governance, Structural Equations Modeling, Algerian Corporations

  • Role of regulators in intensifying financial access to the untouched
           segment of society in developing country
    • Abstract

      India is a country with diversity noticeable in each division of life as well as financial services. The current study examines the initiatives taken by the Ministry of Finance and Reserve Bank of India (RBI) to intensify the accessibility to investment opportunities in financial instruments for the poor or deprived section of society, the initiatives taken in past, present scenario and to recommend the initiatives for the longer term. Households living in rural areas or having low income usually lack access to banking services or financial services. It is tough for these families to save and to arrange financial resources for the longer term. The ease of access and usage of the financial services and products influences the economic health of the individuals as well as of the state. It has been analyzed that the most important barrier towards accessibility of financial service is the psychological and the profitability of banks. There is a requirement for a robust, dynamic research-based business model with regard to an innovative, digitalized and sound economic system.
