Análisis Del Efecto Histéresis En El Sector Agropecuario: Implicaciones En La Producción Y Empleo Rural En Colombia Después De La Apertura De Los Años Noventa, Héctor Felipe Chaves Garzón, Alison Angélica Garavito 2019 Universidad de La Salle, Bogotá

Análisis Del Efecto Histéresis En El Sector Agropecuario: Implicaciones En La Producción Y Empleo Rural En Colombia Después De La Apertura De Los Años Noventa, Héctor Felipe Chaves Garzón, Alison Angélica Garavito

Economía

La instauración del nuevo modelo económico en la década de los 90 para Colombia trajo una restructuración en todos los sectores económicos. Los cambios en el sector agrario se evidenciaron en la trasferencia de factores productivos hacia sectores no transables de la economía y en el cambio del uso del suelo, que trajo consigo una mayor concentración de la tierra y dependencia externa para la provisión de alimentos. La teoría ortodoxa sostiene que los sectores económicos fluctúan a través de una tendencia de largo plazo, tendiendo a un equilibrio; sin embargo, no tiene en cuenta que la historia trasciende del ...


Retaining Millennials: Values-Based Communication Tactics Employers Can Use To Appeal To A Supposed Risk-Adverse Generation, Erica Santillo 2019 University of North Florida

Retaining Millennials: Values-Based Communication Tactics Employers Can Use To Appeal To A Supposed Risk-Adverse Generation, Erica Santillo

UNF Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Millennials are growing within the workforce, but they are becoming difficult to attract and retain for longer than two years at a time. In addition, Millennials have generational-specific values that are different than their predecessors. Identifying and applying these workplace expectations to organizational policies have made it challenging for leaders to appeal to this generation. Millennials desire five aspects from their workplace: work with a purpose, to be their own boss or work for a boss that is a mentor, a collaborative work environment, flexible work schedules, and work-life integration and/or work-life balance. Using a survey research method, this ...


Equal Employment Team Project, Jing Zhang 2019 California State University, San Bernardino

Equal Employment Team Project, Jing Zhang

Q2S Enhancing Pedagogy

Equal employment opportunity (EEO) is a key chapter in any human resources management books. Unequal employment treatment is prevalent. In 2018, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission received 554,000 calls and emails concerning potential discrimination claims. Since most students do not have unequal employment experience, it is critical to find some ways to allow students to see how others suffered from unequal employment treatment and think about how to avoid such behaviors. The team project encourages students to find EEO related cases and discuss the implications to the business in a presentation.

Exploring Alumni Valuation Of An Undergraduate Leadership Program, John D. Egan 2019 Georgia Southern University

Exploring Alumni Valuation Of An Undergraduate Leadership Program, John D. Egan

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

This study explored alumni’ valuation of an undergraduate leadership program by gaining an understanding of what leadership learning and leadership behaviors transferred into their work environments. The alumni graduated from the same university in the southeastern United States, and while enrolled completed a four-year, co-curricular leadership program. In this mixed methods study, eight participant alumni engaged in semi-structured interviews as well as completed the Leadership Practices Inventory. Alumni perceived that leadership experiences, learning community, classroom learning, peer coaching, and intentional reflection were the most valuable attributes of the program.

Mindspace And Development Of Organizational Culture In Aviation Safety Management, Wilson Gilliam Jr 2019 Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

Mindspace And Development Of Organizational Culture In Aviation Safety Management, Wilson Gilliam Jr

International Journal of Aviation, Aeronautics, and Aerospace

Abstract

The organization’s role in establishing a culture fertile for safety development, risk management and mitigation is paramount. Barriers to the effectiveness of aviation safety systems may emerge when human biases interfere with the basic processes of safety management systems. Biases come in many forms and can serve as unconscious discriminatory behaviors against a person’s race, gender, sexual orientation, profession, skill level or other characteristic. Biases can also result from instinctive reactions and habitual patterns serving to protect one’s status, sense of belonging, desire to be viewed as normal and other characteristics. Minimizing biases within an organization ...

Global Aviation System: Towards Sustainable Development, Marina P. Bonser Dr.

International Journal of Aviation, Aeronautics, and Aerospace

Aviation around the world has integrated into a global system. As the integration process continues, more aspects and levels of it need to be lead towards the sustainable development of the whole system via advancing strategic management, global communication proficiency, and technological expertise. It becomes essential to enrich global language (English) proficiency with cross-cultural communication competence not only for communication in the air but also for airport security, passenger and cargo services, aircraft and equipage engineering, building, and maintenance. Nowadays lower levels of management need more advanced strategic thinking and problem solving skills, and higher levels of management need global ...

Exploring The Leadership Styles Of Event Managers And Variation In Their Attitudes Towards Volunteer Training, Jacqueline Leigh 2019 Southern Coss University

Exploring The Leadership Styles Of Event Managers And Variation In Their Attitudes Towards Volunteer Training, Jacqueline Leigh

Theses

Given highly dynamic organisational environments, effective leadership is crucial for growth and organisational success. This thesis explored leadership styles of event managers in Australia and their attitudes towards training event volunteers. Guided by the Full Range of Leadership Theory (FRLT), mixed methods were employed to explore event managers from events across the eastern seaboard of Australia. While findings revealed that the majority of participants predominantly displayed transformational leadership styles, a flexible approach to leadership within events was found to be necessary. Other extraneous factors imposed upon event managers often necessitates them to adapt their natural leadership style to emergent circumstances.


Public Health Workforce Perceived Impact Of Emerging Issues In Public Health, Kristie C. Waterfield 2019 Georgia Southern University

Public Health Workforce Perceived Impact Of Emerging Issues In Public Health, Kristie C. Waterfield

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Background: In an era where public health has been viewed as a global, multi-disciplinary field, the public health workforce has remained united to unfailingly holding fast to the mission of protecting, promoting, and improving the health of the public. However, the practice of public health is consistently evolving, and the workforce is continually facing a mirage of challenges. In order to overcome these challenges, practitioners need to be up-to-date on the necessary knowledge and skills to effectively deliver the core public health services.

Purpose: The purpose of this research was to explore the perceived impact of emerging trends in public ...

Decentralisation And Management Of Human Resource For Health In The Health System Of Ghana: A Decision Space Analysis, Anthony Mwinkaara Sumah, Baatiema Leonard 2019 Australian Catholic University

Decentralisation And Management Of Human Resource For Health In The Health System Of Ghana: A Decision Space Analysis, Anthony Mwinkaara Sumah, Baatiema Leonard

Faculty of Health Sciences Publications

Background
The implications of decentralisation on human resource for health management has not received adequate research attention despite the presupposition that the concept of decentralisation leads to the transfer of management authority and discretion for human resource management from national levels to subnational levels. This study aims at investigating the extent to which decentralisation practice transfers management autonomy and discretion to subnational units, and the effect of the level of decision space on human resource management in the health sector.
Methods
A mixed methods study design was adopted employing a cross-sectional survey and a document analysis. The respondents included health ...


Breaking The Cycle Of Abusive Supervision: How Disidentification And Moral Identity Help The Trickle-Down Change Course, Shannon G. TAYLOR, Matthew D. GRIFFITH, Abhijeet K. VADERA, Robert FOLGER, Chaim R. LETWIN 2019 University of Central Florida

Breaking The Cycle Of Abusive Supervision: How Disidentification And Moral Identity Help The Trickle-Down Change Course, Shannon G. Taylor, Matthew D. Griffith, Abhijeet K. Vadera, Robert Folger, Chaim R. Letwin

Research Collection Lee Kong Chian School Of Business

Studies show that abusive leader behaviors "trickle down" to lower organizational levels, but this research ignores that many abused supervisors do not perpetuate abuse by harming their own subordinates. Drawing on social-cognitive theory and related research, we suggest abused supervisors might defy rather than emulate their managers' abusive behavior. Specifically, we predicted that some abused supervisors-namely, those with strong moral identities-might in effect "change course" by engaging in less abuse or demonstrating ethical leadership with their subordinates to the extent they disidentify with their abusive managers. Across 2 experiments (n = 288 and 462 working adults, respectively) and a field study ...


Career Sponsorship: An Effective Way For Developing Women Leaders, Jovina ANG 2019 Singapore Management University

Career Sponsorship: An Effective Way For Developing Women Leaders, Jovina Ang

Research Collection Lee Kong Chian School Of Business

Other than an effective career progression strategy, this research, which comprised of an autoethnography and an in-depth qualitative case study research showed that career sponsorship could be an effective strategy for developing women leaders. In the sponsor relationship, sponsors invest considerable time, effort and resources in developing sponsees, thus, preparing them for the top jobs. In addition to developing the skills on the leadership strataplex, career sponsorship has been shown to be an enabler for developing confidence, which is one of the necessary ingredients for developing executive presence. Career sponsorship also fills the gap and addresses the shortcomings that arise ...


Ecological Rationality: Fast-And-Frugal Heuristics For Managerial Decision Making Under Uncertainty, Shenghua LUAN, Jochen REB, Gerd GIGERENZER 2019 Chinese Academy of Sciences

Ecological Rationality: Fast-And-Frugal Heuristics For Managerial Decision Making Under Uncertainty, Shenghua Luan, Jochen Reb, Gerd Gigerenzer

Research Collection Lee Kong Chian School Of Business

Heuristics are often viewed as inferior to “rational” strategies that exhaustively search and process information. Introducing the theoretical perspective of ecological rationality, we challenge this view and argue that under conditions of uncertainty common to managerial decision making, managers can actually make better decisions using fast-and-frugal heuristics. Within the context of personnel selection, we show that a heuristic called Δ-inference can more accurately predict which of two job applicants would perform better in the future than logistic regression, a prototypical rational strategy. Using data from 236 applicants at an airline company, we demonstrate in Study 1 that despite searching less ...


Does Job Embeddedness Predict Turnover Intentions In Smes?, Alan Coetzer, Chutarat Inma, Paul Poisat, Janice Redmond, Craig Standing 2019 Edith Cowan University

Does Job Embeddedness Predict Turnover Intentions In Smes?, Alan Coetzer, Chutarat Inma, Paul Poisat, Janice Redmond, Craig Standing

ECU Publications Post 2013

Purpose: There is an absence of research examining job embeddedness in SMEs. Results of job embeddedness studies may not apply to SMEs, because the process of managing a SME differs from that of the large firm. The purpose of this paper is to examine relationships between on-the-job embeddedness, as well as each of its sub-dimensions, and turnover intentions; and group cohesion, on-the-job embeddedness and turnover intentions. Design/methodology/approach: Data were collected from 147 employees in SMEs located in Perth, Western Australia and 350 employees from SMEs operating in four business centres in South Africa. After invariance testing, data from ...


Development And Validation Of The Workplace Dignity Scale, Benjamin Thomas, Kristen Lucas 2018 University of Nebraska at Omaha

Development And Validation Of The Workplace Dignity Scale, Benjamin Thomas, Kristen Lucas

Kristen Lucas

As organizational scholars have become critically attuned to human flourishing in the workplace, interest in workplace dignity has grown rapidly. Yet, a valid scale to measure employees’ perceptions of dignity in the workplace has yet to be developed, thereby limiting potential empirical insights. To fill this need, we conducted a systematic, multi‐study scale development project. Using data generated from focus groups (N = 62), an expert panel (N = 11), and two surveys (N = 401 and N = 542), we developed and validated an 18‐item Workplace Dignity Scale (WDS). Our studies reveal evidence in support of the WDS’s psychometric properties ...


Potential Applications Of Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (Fmri) To Organizational Research: A Primer And Sample Study, Allen I. Huffcutt, Wen-Ching Liu, Lori A. Russell-Chapin 2018 Bradley University

Potential Applications Of Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (Fmri) To Organizational Research: A Primer And Sample Study, Allen I. Huffcutt, Wen-Ching Liu, Lori A. Russell-Chapin

Personnel Assessment and Decisions

The first purpose of this manuscript is to provide a primer for organizational researchers on both fMRI and brain physiology because few are likely to have encountered an in-depth treatment of either previously. The second purpose is to present the results of an actual fMRI study on an organizational topic (structured employment interviews) as a sample to help illustrate the potential of this type of research. Results of the sample study enhanced understanding of the brain processes behind responding to situational (SI) and behavior description (BDI) interviews, and offered several promising directions for follow-up research. To illustrate the latter, there ...
