Preventative Policy Measures To Tackle Undeclared Work In Croatia, Colin C. Williams 2017 University of Sheffield

Preventative Policy Measures To Tackle Undeclared Work In Croatia, Colin C. Williams

Colin C Williams

This report examines the drivers of the undeclared economy in Croatia, the current organisation of the fight against undeclared work, and reviews the current and potential policy approaches and measures for tackling undeclared work in Croatia.
 
Drivers of the undeclared economy in Croatia
Recently, significant advances have been made in explaining the determinants of undeclared work. To explain undeclared work, it has been understood that every society has institutions which prescribe, monitor and enforce the ‘rules of the game’ regarding what is socially acceptable. In all societies, these institutions are of two types: formal institutions that prescribe ‘state morality’ about ...

Review Of “The Age Of Loneliness”, Carol H. Sawyer 2017 Worcester Polytechnic Institute

Review Of “The Age Of Loneliness”, Carol H. Sawyer

Organizational Aesthetics

The playwright has skillfully brought together a number of theories from a variety of disciplines: economics, history, theology, politics, sociology, popular culture. The play personifies theory into characters who engage, conflict with one another and interact principally through sparring conversation. We have been provided a platform that brings the reader/audience into that conversation and into compelling thoughts centered on the clash of values and perspectives — inevitable power struggles. And he has done so in a way that includes humor and the occasional reference to current social issues that will first surprise and then connect with diverse audiences.


The Age Of Loneliness, Steven S. Taylor 2017 Worcester Polytechnic Institute

The Age Of Loneliness, Steven S. Taylor

Organizational Aesthetics

In The Age of Loneliness, June, a young playwright struggles with what comes after her success with her play, The Adventures of Yahweh and Kapital (seen previously in, The Invisible Foot). Can Yahweh and Kapital get along, what sort of relationship will they have, can they survive in a post-growth world, should she even keep writing the play? If this truly is the end of the neo-liberal consensus, what comes next? Can an omnipotent, immortal die?

Choice-Of-Law Rules For Secured Transactions: An Interest-Based And Modern Principles-Based Framework For Assessment, Charles W. Mooney Jr. 2017 University of Pennsylvania Law School

Choice-Of-Law Rules For Secured Transactions: An Interest-Based And Modern Principles-Based Framework For Assessment, Charles W. Mooney Jr.

Faculty Scholarship

This essay examines the law applicable to secured transactions. It addresses in particular the codification of the choice-of-law rules for secured transactions (STCOL rules). These rules address the laws applicable to the creation, perfection, priority, and enforcement of security interests (security rights)—a form of legislative or statutory dépeçage. It draws on the 2016 UNCITRAL Model Law on Secured Transactions (Model Law) as well as relevant North American law (Uniform Commercial Code Article 9 and the Canadian provincial Personal Property Security Acts). The STCOL rules lie at the heart of the emerged and emerging modern principles of secured transactions law ...

Beyond Bathsheba: Managing Ethical Climates Through Pragmatic Ethics, Joseph E. Long 2017 University of Charleston

Beyond Bathsheba: Managing Ethical Climates Through Pragmatic Ethics, Joseph E. Long

The Journal of Values-Based Leadership

This paper explores the puzzling nature of leader behavior in order to understand the conditions that encourage unethical decision-making. Building on the extant literature of pragmatic ethics, I explore how leaders can increase the quality of ethical decision-making within their organizations by understanding the incentives of rational choice. I have developed a rational choice-based ethical decision-making model to understand the incentives behind ethical leader behavior and find that ethical behavior is likely to be rational as long as audience costs remain higher than the savings benefits incurred by unethical behavior. I conclude with analysis of how the ethical rational model ...


The Power Of The Covenant Idea For Leadership, Reform, And Ethical Behavior, Kahlib J. Fischer 2017 Liberty University

The Power Of The Covenant Idea For Leadership, Reform, And Ethical Behavior, Kahlib J. Fischer

The Journal of Values-Based Leadership

The study of leadership is awash with numerous concepts, many of which overlap. To the student and the scholar, finding a starting point and integrative theme for leadership ideas which extend from interpersonal to organizational contexts can be dizzying. This paper proposes the idea of covenant as a unifying metaphor for these valuable and often overlapping leadership ideas. The covenantal approach has had a tremendous impact on the history of Western legal and perhaps, more importantly, social and cultural thought and therefore might offer us a realistic and practical approach to effective leadership. In particular, we will see that a ...

When Leadership Leads To Loathing: The Effect Of Culturally (In)Congruent Leadership On Employee Contempt And Voluntary Work Behaviors, Berit Sund, Rune Lines 2017 Norwegian School of Economics

When Leadership Leads To Loathing: The Effect Of Culturally (In)Congruent Leadership On Employee Contempt And Voluntary Work Behaviors, Berit Sund, Rune Lines

The Journal of Values-Based Leadership

This article suggests that contempt ― a proclivity towards loathing others ― as an emotional response, can arise as a consequence of culturally incongruent leadership, i.e. leader behaviors and actions that do not comply with follower-held, culturally derived expectations and values. Outcomes of contempt were also studied by hypothesizing that contempt, when experienced in response to a situation of culturally incongruent leadership, can cause followers to reduce their display of organizational citizenship behaviors (OCB) while engaging in deviant behaviors. The model was tested in a sample of 348 follower-level employees using structural equation modeling. Empirical results largely support theoretical hypotheses. Culturally ...


Discerning The Servant’S Path: Applying Pre-Committal Questioning To Greenleaf’S Servant Leadership, Henry J. Davis 2017 CUNY Queensborough Community College

Discerning The Servant’S Path: Applying Pre-Committal Questioning To Greenleaf’S Servant Leadership, Henry J. Davis

The Journal of Values-Based Leadership

Robert K. Greenleaf’s servant leadership has become an attractive approach for morally-motivated leaders. However, paradoxes found in servant leadership have the potential to create confusion among those individuals interested in its practice. To assist prospective leaders in deciding upon whether to follow the concepts of servant leadership, an exhaustive literature review was conducted by the researcher to find and code definitions from servant leadership-related writings. The results from the initial coding phase were the following themes: Personal Growth, Development, and Empowerment of Employees; Spiritual, Affirmational, and Ethically-Minded Approach toward Employees; Steward Dedicated to Service of Community and Placing Others ...


An Examination Of Demographics, Personal Values, And Philosophical Orientations Of College Students From Multiple University Campuses, Mary Kovach 2017 Miami University, Oxford, OH

An Examination Of Demographics, Personal Values, And Philosophical Orientations Of College Students From Multiple University Campuses, Mary Kovach

The Journal of Values-Based Leadership

The purpose of this study is to identify what current students value today and to determine whether there is a link between personal values and student demographics. A brief demographic survey of fourteen questions was developed and distributed, along with a twenty-question survey which is used determine participant’s values, or philosophical orientation (McKee, Boyatzis, & Johnston, 2008). There were two hundred and forty-two subjects who volunteered over a two-week time period for this research project. Analysis was completed comparing various demographics (such as age, gender, nationality, first generation students) to determine if certain demographics strongly correlated with a particular philosophical ...


Understanding Kindness – A Moral Duty Of Human Resource Leaders, Cam Caldwell 2017 Louisiana State University, Alexandria

Understanding Kindness – A Moral Duty Of Human Resource Leaders, Cam Caldwell

The Journal of Values-Based Leadership

The role of leaders in the modern organization has evolved as scholars and practitioners have recognized that a key element to long-term profitability is the creation of high trust and high commitment work systems that treat employees as valued partners (Kim & Wright, 2011; Block, 2013; Beer, 2009; Caldwell & Floyd, 2014). Effective leaders create aligned organizational cultures with systems, processes, practices, and programs reinforcing the organization’s espoused values in achieving its mission (Schein, 2010). Human resource professionals (HRPs) play a critical leadership role in ensuring that human resource management (HRM) cultural elements are properly integrated, communicated effectively to employees, and followed in a manner that builds trust and increases commitment (Lengnick-Hall, 2009; McEvoy, et al., 2005).

The purpose of this paper is to identify the importance of kindness as a moral duty of HRPs in serving their organizations and the employees within them. As HRPs perform their strategic and operational roles in the modern organization, properly understanding the nature of kindness is an important factor in ...


Transformational Leadership: Building An Effective Culture To Manage Organisational Knowledge, Mostafa Sayyadi Ghasabeh, Michael J. Provitera 2017 Australian Institute of Management, Sydney

Transformational Leadership: Building An Effective Culture To Manage Organisational Knowledge, Mostafa Sayyadi Ghasabeh, Michael J. Provitera

The Journal of Values-Based Leadership

This paper reviews the current literature of management to indicate how transformational leaders contribute to organisational knowledge by building an effective culture. The paper is based on a review of leadership theories, organisational knowledge, organisational culture and the integration of concepts from the knowledge-based view of the firm. This review also indicates that to develop organisational knowledge transformational leaders act as change agents who influence organisational culture which can in turn mediate the relationship between transformational leadership and organisational knowledge.


Engineering Leadership Programs In Colleges And Universities: A Focus On Morality, Russ Carfagno 2017 Eastern University

Engineering Leadership Programs In Colleges And Universities: A Focus On Morality, Russ Carfagno

The Journal of Values-Based Leadership

Engineering programs at the college and university level have increased their focus on engineering leadership programs over the last decade. The education has focused primarily on skill-based subjects such as organizing, effective communication, and team-building. There is evidence that supports the ability to improve leadership ability by including material related to moral disengagement and moral identity in any leadership development program. This paper describes what is being done today and evidence to support changes in current programs.


Values-Based Leadership, M.S. Rao 2017 Valparaiso University

Values-Based Leadership, M.S. Rao

The Journal of Values-Based Leadership

It is imperative to underscore the urgent need for values-based leadership worldwide – in our governments, academic institutions, and businesses. The lack thereof explains the collapse of global companies such as Enron, Tyco, Lehman Brothers, WorldCom, and Global Crossing due to unethical practices. This clarion call to inject principled decision-making in all forms of life and work is demarcated by inspiring examples of ethical leaders including Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Mother Teresa. It places emphasis more on the “means” of attainment rather than on “ends” to excel as ethical leaders. It outlines the characteristics of values-based leaders and ...
