  • The Influence of Employee Engagement, Work Environment and Job
           Satisfaction on Organizational Commitment and Performance of Employees: A
           Sampling Weights in PLS path Modelling

    • Authors: Isaac Ahakwa; Jingzhao Yang, Evelyn Agba Tackie, Samuel Atingabili
      Abstract: Purpose- This paper explored the link between employee engagement, work environment, and job satisfaction on organizational commitment and employee performance in Ghana's Banking sector considering moderated-mediated interaction. Design/Methodology- Data were obtained from seven hundred and twenty (720) employees from selected financial banks in the Greater Accra Region of Ghana through simple random probability sampling. However, seven hundred (700) responses were deemed accurate and therefore used in the analysis. In the analytical process, Weighted Partial Least Squares (WPLS) and Partial Least Squares (PLS) based on Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) were employed. Findings- From the findings, the studied data for both WPLS-SEM and PLS-SEM models met internal consistency reliability, convergent, and discriminant validity. Also, organizational commitment fully mediated the link between work environment and employee performance in the WPLS-SEM model compared to PLS-SEM with partial mediation. It was statistically significant at p<0.01. Practical Implications- Based on the findings, it’s recommended that organizations and managers focus on developing the workers' workplace environment in numerous ways. This should entail valuing workers' contributions, communicating the company's progress and achievement to workers, thus instilling ownership in workers, providing them with a work-life balance, providing the requisite knowledge and tools for successful production, and providing a stable atmosphere. The workplace of all these factors could increase workers' morale and lead to increased productivity.

  • Assessment of Entrepreneurial Behavior Skills among Small Farmers: An
           Exploratory Study

    • Authors: John Agbolosoo; Richmond Anaman
      Abstract: Aim - The study assessed the entrepreneurial behavior skills of smallholder potato farmers in Nakuru County, Kenya. Methodology - A structured questionnaire was used to collect data. Data were collected from a total of 267 respondents using multistage sampling techniques. The principal component analysis was used to check the reliability and construct variability of entrepreneurial behavior skills. An entrepreneurial behavior index was generated to measure the behavior skills of smallholder potato farmers. Findings - The results show that most smallholder potato farmers had a medium level of risk-taking ability, proactiveness behavior, innovativeness behavior, information-seeking behavior, cosmopoliteness behavior, and decision-making ability. The study concluded that this medium level of entrepreneurial behavior skills made smallholder potato farmers unable to perceive potato farming as a profitable and viable agribusiness venture. Originality - The study recommends that entrepreneurial training with practical demonstration and effective communication skills should be used as an approach to empower and promote the development of entrepreneurial behavior qualities among smallholder potato farmers.

  • Performance Appraisal and Promotion Practices of Public Commercial Banks
           in Bangladesh- A Case Study on ACR Method

    • Authors: Nishath Anjum; Md. Mashfiqur Rahman
      Abstract: Purpose- Performance appraisal is crucial for enhancing the productivity of employees working in any sector. This paper investigates the prevailing performance appraisal system and promotion policy of selected public commercial banks (Sonali Bank Ltd, Rupali Bank Ltd, and Agrani Bank Ltd) in Bangladesh. Design/Methodology- The study is a descriptive case of three banks. The researchers interviewed six experienced banking professionals who provided rich data about their respective banks' performance appraisal and feedback systems. The findings of the study are based on the thematic analysis of the respondents’ statements. However, the study also utilized secondary sources for other relevant information. Findings- The study found that all the banks have an established system for evaluating employee performances through ACR with structured criteria for the promotion. The standard criteria include ACR, academic degree, banking diploma, length of service, etc. However, the grading scale for promoting to different positions is differing among the banks. The study also addressed some limitations of the ACR method as rating only by the manager, biasness on ratings, no appraisal feedback to employees etc. Practical Implications- The study seeks to drive the attention of policymakers to utilize their existing performance appraisal system better and design a more effective one with a well-established promotion policy to encourage the employees to give their best effort at the workplace.
