  • Possible Effect on The Perception and Attitude of Employees After Adoption of New Information Technology and Business Strategies: A Case Study of Namibia   Order a copy of this article
    by Habib Ullah Khan, Fillemon Johannes 
    Abstract: Technology adoption and upgradation are the two required aspects for any organisation to create a niche in the marketplace. It is an undeniable fact that this venture could not be completed successfully without the active involvement of the personnel. So, there is every need to train or update the staff. Keeping the staff in dark about the organisational developments can hinder their active participation and can slowdown the pace of development. With this intention, an exploratory case study is conducted at NPC, Namibia to know the perception and attitude of employees towards IT/IS and business strategies alignment. The case study involved various steps like review of the organisational reports, interacting with employees, data collection using questionnaires and observational studies. The output from the secondary reviews, interactions and the analysis proved that there is much discrepancy in the perception and attitude of the employees with respect to their professional profiles.

  • Impact of Workplace spirituality on Employee Performance and Organizational Citizenship Behaviour   Order a copy of this article
    by Rajesh Srivastava, Tejal Pradhan 
    Abstract: The aim of the paper is to examine the scope, existing content and create new knowledge in the area of workplace spirituality. It is a secondary research based on published papers from refereed journals. A total of 109 research papers were studied with 15 doctoral dissertations of PhD students across leading universities. A content analysis of these articles was conducted. The inclusion of workplace spirituality in the organisation culture can have a substantial impact on employee performance and organisation citizenship behaviour. Workplace spirituality will lead to increased productivity and reduced absenteeism and turnover as per published research but needs to be studied in emerging markets like India. Empirical results overall support that a positive relationship exists between workplace spirituality and organisational citizen behaviour however there is a paucity of research explaining the impact of organisational citizenship behaviour on job performance with workplace spirituality being a moderating variable.

    by Katarzyna Tomaszek, Agnieszka Muchacka-Cymerman 
    Abstract: School burnout among young people is an increasingly common topic. The syndrome may be affected by external factors such as addiction or the environment, but also internal factors, which may include emotional dysregulation or personality structure. In the study, student school burnout scale (SSBS) was used to measure the level of burnout, the level of personality structure was measured using dirty dozen scale (DTDD), and SOC-29 to measure sense of coherence. The research was carried out among 147 students from Poland and the USA between 17

  • The Moderation Role of Ethical Leadership on Organizational Justice, Professional Commitment, and Organizational Citizenship Behavior Among Academicians   Order a copy of this article
    by Dwi Novitasari, Asri Laksmi Riani, Joko Suyono, Mugi Harsono 
    Abstract: This study aims to examine the effect of organisational justice, professional commitment, and ethical leadership as moderating variables in predicting organisational citizenship behaviour (OCB). The advantage of the current study is the use of ethical leadership as a moderator in the relationship between organisational justice, commitment and OCB, as previous empirical studies are still limited. The population of this research is the academic community of private universities in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Proportional stratified sampling was used for sample selection and research data were collected through questionnaires. Of the distributed questionnaires, 302 were included in the analysis. The results showed that organisational justice had a positive effect on OCB. However, when ethical leadership was included as a moderating variable, the interaction between organisational justice and ethical leadership was negative. In conclusion, ethical leadership weakens the relationship between organisational justice and OCB. The results also confirm that professional commitment has a positive effect on OCB. The interaction between professional commitment and ethical leadership as a moderating variable is negative. The conclusion is that ethical leadership weakens the relationship between professional commitment and OCB.
    Keywords: moderation role; ethical leadership; organisational justice; professional commitment; organisational citizenship behaviour; OCB; moderating variables.

  • An Exploration of Whether Job Satisfaction Predicts Subjective Well-Being among Social Workers   Order a copy of this article
    by Onick Lewis, Andrew Babyak 
    Abstract: The purpose of this quantitative correlational study was to examine if and to what extent Herzberg’s motivating factors of job satisfaction predicts the subjective well-being (SWB), as measured by SWLS among currently practicing social workers in the USA. The study was guided by two research questions: 1) to what extent, if any, does general job satisfaction, as measured by the Minnesota satisfaction questionnaire (MSQ) predict subjective well-being, as measured by the satisfaction with life scale (SWLS); 2) to what extent, if any, do the five dimensions of the MSQ (work itself, recognition, achievement, responsibility, and personal growth), together and separately, predict subjective well-being, as measured by the SWLS? 187 practicing social workers were surveyed to collect primary data. Results from a regression analysis indicated that job satisfaction is significantly associated with SWB, p < 0.001; R2 = 0.312 and the only dimension of the MSQ that was found to have a statistically significant association with SWB was advancement, p < 0.015. The results indicated a significant relationship between job satisfaction and SWB; however, individual dimensions of job satisfaction’s relationship to SWB found advancement as the only factor that significantly affects SWB among social workers in the USA.

  • Why Does Abusive Leadership Lead to Employee Silence ---The Mediating Role of Perceived Insider Status and Psychological Safety   Order a copy of this article
    by Muddassar Sarfraz, Larisa Ivascu, Ilknur Ozturk 
    Abstract: The study’s primary objective is to examine the influence of abusive leadership on employee silence and the mediating effect of perceived insider status and psychological safety. It divulges the mechanism through which abusive leadership affects employee silence. Data is collected from 210 employees by using a simple random sampling technique. The participants are working in different industries across China. Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) is used for data analysis and hypotheses testing. The study results show that abusive leadership has a significant positive correlation with employee silence. Furthermore, perceived insider status and psychological safety play a mediating role in abusive leadership’s influence on employee silence. This study provides contributions for human resource management and organisational behaviour literature regarding antecedent variable theories of abusive leadership and outcome variable of employee silence.
    Keywords: abusive leadership; perceived insider status; psychological safety; employee silence; China.
