Workplace Factors As Determinants Of Job Commitment Among Senior Non-Teaching Staff Of Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ogun State, Olukunle Saheed Oludeyi 2015 Tai Solarin University of Education, Ogun State, Nigeria

Workplace Factors As Determinants Of Job Commitment Among Senior Non-Teaching Staff Of Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ogun State, Olukunle Saheed Oludeyi

Olukunle Saheed, OLUDEYI

Studies have focused on workplace environment in relations to health and safety of workers in health industries. There is however scanty empirical research on workplace environmental factors and employee job commitment in universities. While others showed the connection between work environment and job attitude across organisations, studies on workplace environment which are conducted in the university setting seem to focus on the influence of university environment on job performance of teaching staff and not on job commitment among senior non-teaching staff. Others focus their study on job commitment among lecturers. In a bid to fill this gap, this research work ...

This study is limited by being cross-sectional in nature and considered only one ...


Work Made For Hire – Analyzing The Multifactor Balancing Test, Ryan G. Vacca 2015 University of Akron School of Law

Work Made For Hire – Analyzing The Multifactor Balancing Test, Ryan G. Vacca

Akron Law Publications

Authorship, and hence, initial ownership of copyrighted works is oftentimes controlled by the 1976 Copyright Act’s work made for hire doctrine. This doctrine states that works created by employees within the scope of their employment result in the employer owning the copyright. One key determination in this analysis is whether the hired party is an employee or independent contractor. In 1989, the U.S. Supreme Court, in CCNV v. Reid, answered the question of how employees are distinguished from independent contractors by setting forth a list of factors courts should consider. Unfortunately, the Supreme Court did not give further ...

Powerlessness Within A Budget-Driven Paradigm: A Grounded Theory Leadership Study From The Perspective Of Michigan Corrections Officers, Timothy Michael Eklin 2015 Antioch University - PhD Program in Leadership and Change

Powerlessness Within A Budget-Driven Paradigm: A Grounded Theory Leadership Study From The Perspective Of Michigan Corrections Officers, Timothy Michael Eklin

Dissertations & Theses

This study explored the lived-experiences of 15 correctional officers and 5 sergeants working in adult state-operated prison facilities in Michigan. In particular, this qualitative grounded theory study revealed the impact that budget driven decision-making had on the lives of correctional officers: its effect on institutional custody, security, and safety. The study finds that many recent policy changes resulted in a sense of powerlessness expressed by the participants of the study. Participants found themselves in a precarious position, situated in between the prison population and the administration. Having an understanding of how correctional officers make meaning of their work in relation ...


Firing Threats: Incentive Effects And Impression Management, Brice Corgnet, Roberto Hernan-Gonzalez, Stephen J. Rassenti 2015 Chapman University

Firing Threats: Incentive Effects And Impression Management, Brice Corgnet, Roberto Hernan-Gonzalez, Stephen J. Rassenti

Economics Faculty Articles and Research

We study the effect of firing threats in a virtual workplace that reproduces features of existing organizations. We show that organizations in which bosses can fire up to one third of their workforce produce twice as much as organizations for which firing is not possible. Firing threats sharply decrease on-the-job leisure. Nevertheless, organizations endowed with firing threats underperformed those using individual incentives. In the presence of firing threats, employees engage in impression management activities to be seen as hard-working individuals in line with our model. Finally, production levels dropped substantially when the threat of being fired was removed, whereas on-the-job ...

Optimizing Performance Of Hrss And Selling Of The Shared Services Model, Elizabeth Wixted, Stuart Smith Phd

Research in Human Capital Development (HCD 770)

In today’s business world, organizations must continuously change in order to stay relevant and competitive in the marketplace. One of the ways organizations have been doing this is by moving functional groups to centers of excellence and shared services models. The purpose of these models is to standardize processes across organizations with the added intention to recognize significant cost savings. My company is no exception to this phenomenon but we are moving one line of business at a time in a slow and thoughtful manner. If I had the opportunity to sell the shared services model to my entire ...

Development Of Workforce Skills: Student Perceptions Of Mentoring In First Robotics, Katie Joan Veal Wallace

Dissertations

In today’s global economy, new workforce competencies are needed for success at both individual and societal levels. The new workforce skills extend beyond basic reading, writing, and arithmetic to include higher order processes such as critical thinking and problem solving. Technical job opportunities have grown by approximately 17%, yet the United States continues to decline in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines. Further, U.S. students earn average or below average test scores when compared to other developed countries. Researchers cite the need to incorporate the learning of workplace skills into secondary education curriculum, and advocates call for ...

Correlation, ANOVA, and multiple regressions were used to test the relationship and differences between self-directed learning and hope, specifically within the domain of workplace learning. All instruments utilized in this study displayed sound internal consistency reliability. The author-generated ...

A Strategic Approach To Improving Workplace Performance At The West Philadelphia Skills Initiative, Sheila Ireland, Stuart Smith Phd

Research in Human Capital Development (HCD 770)

In this paper I will focus on the talent management issues in my own department rather than the ones in the larger organization. Specifically, I used the framework proposed in Beyond HR to help my department:

  1. Identify our strategic pivot points
  2. Identify the organization and talent pivot points that matter most
  3. Develop the program policies and investments that will make those pivot points happen.

As I have the authority to do so within my own department my role has accordingly changed from Influencer of Action to Change Agent. I have used a combination of library research and action research for ...

An Inquiry Into The Aviation Management Education Paradigm Shift, Matthew P. Earnhardt Ph.D., Jason M. Newcomer D.B.A., Daryl V. Watkins D.M., James W. Marion Ph.D.

International Journal of Aviation, Aeronautics, and Aerospace

Working adults with four-year degrees from accredited colleges or universities earn, on average, almost three times more than individuals without a degree. This pay gap led Newcomer and his colleagues to study attitudes of aviation and aerospace managers towards education. That study found that managers valued education in new hires, even though they did not deem it critical to their own positions. That finding indicated a potential paradigm shift towards the perceived value of education in the industry.

In the current qualitative, phenomenological research, we interviewed 14 managers from various capacities within the aviation and aerospace industries to determine the ...
