  • Leadership Behavior and Its Impact on Task Performance from the Employees' Perspective: A Case Study of Taiwan   Order a copy of this article
    by Tz-Li Wang  
    Abstract: Leaders should encourage employees in the right direction to achieve the company's strategic goals. This study focuses on transformational leaders who can motivate their subordinates and help them reach their highest capabilities by focusing on optimism and the influence on performance levels. Factors such as job burnout could hinder employees' performance, influenced by companies' culture and performance appraisal. Combining a comprehensive model and innovative methodology, this paper offers a new perspective on the impact of managers' leadership. The paper uses factor analysis and HLM to analyse the multilevel regression between employees' job performance, job burnout, and their managers' leadership styles. Using data from 381 questionnaires distributed in 2022 in the retail drugstore industry in Taiwan, the results show that while burnout is detrimental to employees' performance, a transformational leader acts as a motivator and influencer that lead to better achievement.
    Keywords: transformational leadership; job performance; burnout; hierarchical linear modelling; HLM; multilevel regression.

  • Measuring the activity of the population of Russian regions in the global online labor market   Order a copy of this article
    by Evgeniya Karpunina, Nadezhda V. Pilipchuk, Farida I. Mirzabalaeva, Patimat R. Alieva, Natalia N. Zubareva 
    Abstract: The purpose of the article is to identify the most active regions of Russia in terms of the involvement of the local population in the field of freelancing, as well as to identify the main factors contributing to this. The authors found out that the frequency of search queries for keywords corresponding to the names of popular digital freelance platforms reflects the ratio of their number in various regions and regions of the country. The authors also determined that economic factors are not paramount in the formation of the workforce in the online labour market, but this is influenced by parameters such as the employment and education of the population, as well as the degree of urbanisation of regions. Based on these indicators, a cluster analysis was carried out to classify regions in terms of the local population’s involvement in the freelancing field.
    Keywords: online labour market; freelance; employment; population activity; digital freelance platforms; regions; Russia; globalisation.
