The Relationship Between Social Media Co-Worker Connections And Work - Related Attitudes, Gordon B. Schmidt, Ariel M. Lelchook, James E. Martin

Organizational Leadership and Supervision Faculty Publications

Many people have social media connections with co-workers. An important question that arises is how such connections impact important organizational factors. This study begins to look at such impact by examining how a user's total number of co-worker social media connections and the percentage of total social media connections that are co-workers impacts perceptions of organizational support and organizational spontaneity. In a sample of 106 union members across a number of organizations it is found that percentage of co-worker social media connections has a significant positive relationship with both perceptions of organizational support and organizational spontaneity. Total co-worker social ...

The Potential Of Data Envelopment Analysis (Dea) In Labor Adjustment Policy, Intae Choi 2015 Yonsei University

The Potential Of Data Envelopment Analysis (Dea) In Labor Adjustment Policy, Intae Choi

Cornell HR Review

[Excerpt] Through labor-management policy, the management is responsible for establishing mutually beneficial relations between workers and employers. Establishing proper relations from the perspective of the worker refers to protecting workers’ rights by guaranteeing their quality of life. Areas of labor-management policy set by management include those that appropriate wages and labor conditions; stipulate and settle collective relations between management and workers; and establish industrial safety and workers’ compensation. Management also sets employment policies related to labor welfare, vocational training, employment security, maintenance of employment agencies, and other policies that push forward human resource development.

When setting these policies, management seeks ...

Individual Employment Rights Arbitration In The United States: Actors And Outcomes, Alexander Colvin, Mark D. Gough 2015 Cornell University

Individual Employment Rights Arbitration In The United States: Actors And Outcomes, Alexander Colvin, Mark D. Gough

Articles and Chapters

The authors examine disposition statistics from employment arbitration cases administered over an 11-year period by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) to investigate the process of dispute resolution in this new institution of employment relations. They investigate the predictors of settlement before the arbitration hearing and then estimate models for the likelihood of employee wins and damage amounts for the 2,802 cases that resulted in an award. Their findings show that larger-scale employers who are involved in more arbitration cases tend to have higher win rates and have lower damage awards made against them. This study also provides evidence of ...


Fair Trade Or Fake Trade? Specialty Coffee Certifications And Development In Uganda, Eliza Cummings 2015 SIT Graduate Institute - Study Abroad

Fair Trade Or Fake Trade? Specialty Coffee Certifications And Development In Uganda, Eliza Cummings

Independent Study Project (ISP) Collection

This project examined the relationship between specialty coffee certifications and development. The focus was exploring the local and national implications Fairtrade coffee certifications have in Uganda. Coffee is a critical commodity, accounting for 15 percent of Uganda’s foreign exchange and engaging over one million households in production. Currently, specialty certified coffees including Fairtrade, Rainforest Alliance, and 4C make up only four percent of total production. However, under Uganda’s 2013 National Coffee Policy, there is a target to expand specialty production to 24 percent. It is therefore imperative to understand how these specialty certifications affect primary producers participating as ...


The Role Of Human Resources In Developing Diverse Leadership Paradigms, Randy Markush-Hallman 2015 Cornell University

The Role Of Human Resources In Developing Diverse Leadership Paradigms, Randy Markush-Hallman

Cornell HR Review

[Excerpt] As US-based companies continue to expand internationally, it is critical that the HR function plays a major role in developing a leadership paradigm that can be effectively leveraged by the entire company and considers diverse or “non-western” styles of leadership. HR must be mindful of three key considerations when establishing this leadership paradigm. First, they should aim to create a standardized model of leadership across all regions the company operates within. Second, and just as importantly, the model must be flexible enough to allow leaders in different regions to make adjustments based on cultural differences, different regulatory and economic ...


Political Entrepreneurs And Co-Managers: Labour Transnationalism At Four Multinational Auto Companies, Ian Greer, Marco Hauptmeier 2015 Cornell University

Political Entrepreneurs And Co-Managers: Labour Transnationalism At Four Multinational Auto Companies, Ian Greer, Marco Hauptmeier

Ian Greer

This paper examines labour transnationalism within four multinational automakers. In our sample, we find different forms of labour transnationalism, including transnational collective bargaining, mobilisation, information exchange and social codes of conduct. We explain these differences through the interaction between management and labour in the context of the company structure; of particular importance are transnational coercive comparisons by management and the orientations of worker representatives as political entrepreneurs or co-managers. We conclude that, although intensified worker-side crossborder cooperation were not preventing wage-based competition in general (due to the lack of between-firm coordination), they have reshaped employment relations within these MNCs.


Community-Labor Alliance Sparks South Carolina, 2015

Community-Labor Alliance Sparks South Carolina,

Ian Greer

[Excerpt] On October 27,1994, employees of the Melrose Resort, on South Carolina's Daufuskie Island, made history. They voted 98 to 45 to be represented by the International Union of Operating Engineers (IUOE). With this vote, these workers became the first in the Hilton Head area to successfully organize and win union representation.

In the South, where corporate control is still the dominant theme and less than 3 percent of the workforce is organized, the victory in Hilton Head was remarkable. The campaign that lead to the vote was also remarkable because it pulled together an alliance rarely seen ...


World Champions In Hospital Privatisation: The Effects Of Neoliberal Reform On German Employees And Patients, , , 2015 Wirtschafts- und Sozialwissenschaftliche Institut

World Champions In Hospital Privatisation: The Effects Of Neoliberal Reform On German Employees And Patients, , ,

Ian Greer

[Excerpt] Over the past decade, German hospitals have been privatised at a rate not seen in any other country. In response to massive public-sector debt and the resulting investment backlog, many state and local governments have been privatising hospitals. The most common arguments for privatisation are repeated in a recent study commissioned by the association of private hospital owners (Bundesverband Deutscher Privatkliniken - BDPK) namely that private hospitals manage in a more efficient manner and are economically more successful (Augurzky, Beivers et al., 2009). Indeed, in some cases, private for-profit hospital companies have invested generously and turned inefficient public hospitals into ...


Identity Work: Sustaining Transnational Collective Action At General Motors Europe, 2015

Identity Work: Sustaining Transnational Collective Action At General Motors Europe,

Ian Greer

What are the conditions under which transnational collective action is initiated and sustained? This paper presents a case study of General Motors Europe, where labor leaders have mobilized the workforce and bargained with management at the transnational level repeatedly over more than a decade as a response to management whipsawing and threats of plant closures. In contrast to structuralist interest-based theories of union behavior, we identify a process of “identity work‟ that was necessary to sustain transnational worker cooperation.


Challenges And Opportunities In Healthcare Volunteer Management: Insights From Volunteer Administrators, , , 2015 Cornell University School of Hotel Administration

Challenges And Opportunities In Healthcare Volunteer Management: Insights From Volunteer Administrators, , ,

Sean Rogers

Volunteer administrators from 105 hospitals in five states in the northeast and southern United States provided open-ended survey responses about what they perceived to be the most pressing challenges and opportunities facing healthcare volunteer management. Taken together, these 105 hospitals used a total of 39,008 volunteers and 5.3 million volunteer hours during a 12-month period between 2010 and 2011. A qualitative content analysis of administrator responses suggests that primary challenges include volunteer recruitment and retention, administrative issues, and operational difficulties brought about by the current economic crisis. Key opportunities include more explicitly linking the volunteer function to hospital ...
