  • Managing the adverse effect of supply chain risk on corporate reputation:
           The mediating role of corporate social responsibility practices

      Authors: Nitya P. Singh
      Pages: 251 - 261
      Abstract: Journal of General Management, Volume 46, Issue 4, Page 251-261, July 2021.
      Within the last decade, research has focussed on corporate social responsibility (CSR) practices as a strategic tool that enables firms to improve stakeholder perception, brand image and corporate reputation. However, one area that remains understudied is the role played by CSR practices in managing corporate reputation under conditions of supply chain risk. To answer this research question, we conduct a literature review and develop the corresponding hypothesis. We test our hypothesis using quantitative analysis of both primary and secondary data collected from organizations dispersed globally. The results highlight that under conditions of supply chain network disruption risk, CSR practices play an important role in enabling firms to manage the negative impact of such risk drivers on corporate reputation. The study further suggests that CSR practices positively impact supply chain risk management (SCRM) practices and are a necessary condition for SCRM practices to be effective in improving corporate reputation of organizations.

  • The ascendancy of stakeholder capitalism: What is its meaning for
           corporate governance'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Thomas A. Hemphill, Keith E. Kelley, Francine Cullari
      Pages: 262 - 273
      Abstract: Journal of General Management, Volume 46, Issue 4, Page 262-273, July 2021.
      We address the recent ascendancy of “stakeholder capitalism” and its potential impact on US corporate governance practice. Utilizing a four dimensional, analytic framework (legal, ethical, economic, and political), the authors evaluate the potential effects of stakeholder capitalism on the existing corporate governance of companies, concluding that stakeholder capitalism is a commitment, not a legal requirement; it is currently being practiced in boardrooms; and yet it is not the responsibility of the company, under stakeholder capitalism, to solve America’s social issues. The article concludes with business policy recommendations for directors concerning likely legal, ethical, economic, and political changes affecting stakeholder capitalism.

  • The impact of transformational leadership and interactional justice on
           follower performance and organizational commitment in a business context

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Geir Thompson, Robert Buch, Per-Magnus Moe Thompson, Lars Glasø
      Pages: 274 - 283
      Abstract: Journal of General Management, Volume 46, Issue 4, Page 274-283, July 2021.
      The relationships between transformational leaders and several follower outcomes have been well investigated, but the mechanism through which these leadership behaviors relate to such outcomes is relatively unexplored. By investigating the mediating role of interactional justice, using structural equation modeling analyses, and data collected from supervisors and direct reports at various organizational levels, the present study provides insight into the psychological processes underlying transformational leadership and its effectiveness on follower outcomes. In line with social exchange theory, the main takeaway from the present study is suggesting that leaders, who display transformational leadership behavior in a manner perceived by followers as respectful, fair, and consistent with moral and ethical standards, may expect greater follower organizational attachment as an appropriate response to interactional justice.

  • Taking social responsibilities overseas' The learning paths and
           performance consequences of Chinese multinationals

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Sihong Wu, Di Fan
      Pages: 284 - 301
      Abstract: Journal of General Management, Volume 46, Issue 4, Page 284-301, July 2021.
      Corporate social responsibility (CSR) has been seen as an effective strategy that emerging market multinational enterprises increasingly adopt in order to cope with the liability of origin, yet much less attention has been paid to the micro-foundations of such a strategy. It remains less explored as to how CSR is leveraged by individuals—that is, expatriates. Addressing this research gap, a total of 150 valid survey responses from 38 Chinese multinationals were tested using the structural equation modeling technique. The results show that expatriates’ cross-cultural competence and engagement in CSR facilitate the learning efficiency of subsidiaries. The findings also suggest that expatriates’ effort positively mediates the relationship between CSR and performance outcomes (at both individual level and organizational level). Embracing the micro-foundations perspective in CSR research, this study offers both theoretical and practical implications for future international management research.

  • Career ambition and employee performance behaviour: The presence of
           ideological development

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Hong T. M. Bui, Shandana Shoaib, Viet Ha Tran Vu, Thanh Q. Nguyen, Mai Trọng Nhuận
      Pages: 302 - 312
      Abstract: Journal of General Management, Volume 46, Issue 4, Page 302-312, July 2021.
      This study develops and tests a theoretical model that investigates how career ambition can have an impact on different types of academics’ performance behaviour and how ideological development at work can affect this model in a special context of a communist country. In a study of 991 employees in a large university in Vietnam, the model is largely supported. The findings suggest that in-role behaviour has a significant mediating role in the effect of career ambition on extra-role behaviour and that this mediating effect is stronger among the group of employees who have participated in advanced ideological development in the context of Vietnamese higher education. This study advances the understanding of an underdeveloped relationship between career ambition and employee performance behaviour and expands the knowledge of the impact of ideological development at work.

  • Enterprise e-banking satisfaction and continuance in business operations

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Ziqi Liao, Xinping Shi, Man Hei Yee
      Pages: 313 - 321
      Abstract: Journal of General Management, Volume 46, Issue 4, Page 313-321, July 2021.
      This article aims at examining key determinants and implications of enterprise e-banking satisfaction and continuance in business operations. The empirical results unveil that firms’ satisfaction significantly mediates the effects of trustworthiness, utilitarian value, and usability on firms’ continuance intention to use enterprise e-banking services. The empirical results also suggest that it is fundamental for commercial banks to provide trustworthy and reliable enterprise e-banking services that can efficiently and effectively facilitate firms in different industries to perform banking works and transactions online. The present study makes important contributions to research and practice. The empirically grounded findings enrich the theoretical understanding of the implementation of enterprise e-banking systems and services in business operations and provide managerial insights for the development and enhancement of digital banking and financial services.
