    by Neelika Arora, Neeraj Dhiman 
    Abstract: This study has investigated the role of Psychological capital in predicting intention to leave the job. Three hundred and forty paramedical and nursing staff has completed the questionnaire. A Research framework was created based on the proposed hypotheses and path analysis was run using bootstrapping. The research findings confirmed that all the dimensions namely self efficacy, hope, optimism and resilience have contributed to psychological capital. In the present context resilience has shared more beta value toward psychological capital followed by optimism. Similarly, finding of the present study has confirmed the conjecture of negative impact of psychological capital on turnover intentions among paramedical and nursing staff. Hence the present study has numerous theoretical, practical and research implications.
    Keywords: Psychological Capital; Turnover intentions; Health Professionals and Hospitals.

  • Innovative Work Behaviour Induced by Transformational Leadership through Altruism   Order a copy of this article
    by Mohanad Alnajjar, Junaidah Hashim 
    Abstract: This study aimed to investigate the mediating role of altruism in the relationship between transformational leadership and innovative work behaviour. Data was collected from innovative employees and their supervisors in 162 Malaysian innovative SMEs using a self-administered questionnaire. The findings showed a significant relationship between TL and altruism, which partially mediated the link between TL and IWB. Altruisms link to IWB was stronger for women than it was for men. Also, the link between TL and altruism was stronger for those who had higher scores of perceived organisational support. Altruism has been denied relevance to business operations. Therefore, replicating this study in other contexts would allow a better understanding of altruisms contribution to employee innovativeness. Considering the high rate of failure, SMEs have no choice but to be innovative. The findings of this study help SMEs to succeed through employee altruistic behaviour which possibly leads to IWB. The role of leaders in this regard is significant.
    Keywords: Innovative Work Behaviour; Transformational Leadership; Altruism SMEs.

  • Innovation and quality of working life: perspectives and dimensions for analysis   Order a copy of this article
    by Giorgio Gosetti 
    Abstract: The essay proposes a theoretical framework for reading the relationship between innovation and equality of working life. With the changes currently being felt the world of work, it is especially important to establish promising perspectives for defining quality of working life, and the dimensions by which we understand it. Having considered the multidimensional character of innovation, provided a brief overview of some of the principal attempts to formulate measures of job quality, and illustrated the relationship between innovation and quality of working life, we argue the need (also identified by other authors) to expand our framework for analysing quality of working life to incorporate not only questions of quality of work but also those of the quality of the work-life relationship. These changes help us to better understand changes in working conditions and the theoretical and methodological implications of the relationship between innovation and quality of working life. The perspectives and dimensions that form the basis of the model proposed are therefore founded on this theoretical and methodological assumption.
