  • Examining the relationship between Brazils country brand equity and the specific conations towards the country   Order a copy of this article
    by Maria Gabriela Montanari 
    Abstract: This article aimed to verify the relationship between Brazils country brand equity of Brazil and the purchase intentions (so called conations) towards this country, because this is an emerging country that has a potential in the international market. A survey was conducted with foreign students and an analysis based on structural equation modeling technique was carried out. Our findings suggest that Brazils country brand equity positively influences conations towards this country in terms of investment, business and work. These results are of substantial value to international marketing managers and government authorities designing country brand communications, especially in a highly competitive scenario. For instance, the government can adjust marketing programs aimed to international consumers and the trade of products abroad and also to modify the campaigns of Brazilian brands internationally, focusing in attributes related to business.

  • Volunteer work and happiness: a systematic literature review with sustainable development approach.   Order a copy of this article
    by Pedro Augusto Bertucci Lima, Enzo Barberio Mariano 
    Abstract: A happier life has always been the goal of human society. This view has recently gained attention from the scientific world, which usually divides it into two principal groups: the hedonics, who believe that happiness is the balance of pleasures and dissatisfactions; and the eudaimonics who, based on the Aristotelian thought of virtues, focus on the good life of the majority of beings, not only the individual. These concepts can enhance economic studies about how issues such as unemployment, inflation and income can influence people\'s well-being. Also, in a period in which the economy is not the main reason for real happiness, and the world needs a closer approach to sustainable development practices, voluntary work can be a reliable way to help the increase of individual well-being as well as that of society, since there is evidence of a positive relationship between the practice of volunteer work and well-being. This paper concluded, based on a literature review, that volunteer work is an important factor for a more sustainable and happier world.rn

    by Diego Delmonico, Barbara Bezerra 
    Abstract: Sustainability has been a trending topic for researchers and the logistics have a major role for the sustainable operations and sustainable supply chain. However, the specific concept of sustainable logistics is still lacking studies and there is no sistematizing approach to unveil what have been produced under this particular concept. The objective of this study is to conduct a systematic literature review on the concept of sustainable logistics. The results indicate that there is still a need to address the specific concepts and three dimensions of sustainability in logistics. The paper contributes to researchers and professionals by pointing to future research in this field and synthetically presenting what has been produced under the concept of sustainable logistics.
    Keywords: literature review; sustainable logistics; triple bottom line; sustainable operations.

  • Organizational innovation in human resource management: aspects influencing quality of life at work in Southern Brazil   Order a copy of this article
    by Rossana Parizotto Ribeiro, Eliana Andréa Severo, Julio Cesar Ferro De Guimarães, Claudio Rotta 
    Abstract: This study analyzed the relationships between organizational innovations in human resources management, benefits offered, quality of life actions at work and the satisfaction of 159 employees of two agroindustry cooperatives located in the north of Rio Grande do Sul. The methodology used was a survey, through a quantitative and descriptive research using confirmatory factorial analysis and multiple linear regression. The results highlight that the organizational innovations are related to the benefits offered and the quality of life actions at work. The actions that aim to improve the quality of life at work directly influence the satisfaction of employees, positively affecting the professional and personal life of the employee. Research indicates that raising quality of work at work and providing a well-structured benefit plan leads to talent retention, which reduces turnover and absenteeism.
