Following The ‘Organising Model’ Of British Unions? Organising Non-Standard Workers In Germany And The Netherlands, Kurt Vandaele, Janine Leschke 2009 ETUI

Following The ‘Organising Model’ Of British Unions? Organising Non-Standard Workers In Germany And The Netherlands, Kurt Vandaele, Janine Leschke

Kurt Vandaele

Over the last three decades trade unions in almost all European countries have been losing members. In particular non-standard workers (part-time employed, temporary employed and own-account self-employed) are currently less likely than those on standard contracts to be organised in unions. The paper, which is based on a literature review, has a twofold purpose. A first objective is to provide a survey of the initiatives developed by trade unions in Germany, the Netherlands and the UK for organising non-standard workers. A second objective is to assess whether, and to what extent, the Dutch and German unions are influenced by British ...

Frame-Of-Reference Training Effectiveness: Effects Of Goal Orientation And Self-Efficacy On Affective, Cognitive, Skill-Based, And Transfer Outcomes., Erich Dierdorff, Eric Surface, Kenneth Brown 2009 DePaul University

Frame-Of-Reference Training Effectiveness: Effects Of Goal Orientation And Self-Efficacy On Affective, Cognitive, Skill-Based, And Transfer Outcomes., Erich Dierdorff, Eric Surface, Kenneth Brown

Erich C. Dierdorff

Empirical evidence supporting frame-of-reference (FOR) training as an effective intervention for calibrating raters is convincing. Yet very little is known about who does better or worse in FOR training. We conducted a field study of how motivational factors influence affective, cognitive, and behavioral learning outcomes, as well as near transfer indexed by achieving professional certification. Relying on goal orientation theory, we hypothesized effects for 3 goal orientations: learning, prove performance, and avoid performance. Results were generally supportive across learning outcomes and transfer. Findings further supported a hypothesized interaction between learning self-efficacy and avoid performance goal orientation, such that higher levels ...

Multinational Firms And The Pursuit Of Social Benefits, Antonello Zanfei 2009 University of Urbino

Multinational Firms And The Pursuit Of Social Benefits, Antonello Zanfei

Antonello Zanfei

It is argued that a new actor is emerging in international business, namely “Social Multinationals”, that is a blend of international rent-creation and pursuit of social objectives. However, it would be misleading to state that the emergence of Social Multinationals will be the natural outcome of a market driven process. Too much is left to the understanding and sensitiveness of individual entrepreneurs. Signals of the emergence of this new and promising breed are still very weak. Important institutional innovations will have to be enacted to favour its strengthening and growth.

Retail Stocking Policy Under Supply-Driven Demand Uncertainty, Peeyush Mehta, R Amit 2009 IIT KANPUR

Retail Stocking Policy Under Supply-Driven Demand Uncertainty, Peeyush Mehta, R Amit

R K Amit

In this paper, we develop a shelf space stocking policy when demand, in addition to the exogenous uncertainty, is influenced by the amount of inventory displayed (supply) on the retail shelves. Similar to the moral hazard literature, our solution approach exploits the stochastic dominance condition that models that impact of supply on the demand distribution. We also contrast the optimal policy with the classical newsvendor problem critical fractile policy.


A Modular Approach To Business Ethics Integration: At The Intersection Of The Stand-Alone And The Integrated Approaches, laura hartman, patricia werhane 2009 DePaul University

A Modular Approach To Business Ethics Integration: At The Intersection Of The Stand-Alone And The Integrated Approaches, Laura Hartman, Patricia Werhane

Laura Hartman

With learning objectives designed precisely to measure the student delta based on content, process and engagement in a particular class, those programs that have opted for stand-alone ethics courses may be (though not necessarily are) more prepared to respond to assessment-related inquiries regarding their programs or satisfaction of the standards. The relevance of the AACSB standards modification to the current efforts at ethics integration in business programs is instead a re-examination of how to create a program of integration that is designed to ensure the most effective learning results possible, while responding to the challenges presented by the integrated approach ...

An Evaluation Of The Ability Of Rfid Tags To Withstand Distribution Of Fresh Produce In The Rpc Pooling System, Jay Singh, Paul Singh, Kyle Desautels, Koushik Saha, Eric Olsen 2009 California Polytechnic State University - San Luis Obispo

An Evaluation Of The Ability Of Rfid Tags To Withstand Distribution Of Fresh Produce In The Rpc Pooling System, Jay Singh, Paul Singh, Kyle Desautels, Koushik Saha, Eric Olsen

Eric Olsen

This study focused on the ability of radio frequency identification (RFID) tags applied on reusable plastic containers (RPCs) to withstand repeated abuse due to physical distribution and storage environment related hazards. It also studied the effect of the chemical cleaning environments that RPCs are commonly exposed to in the pooling/rental systems commonly used to distribute fresh produce. RPCs are being successfully deployed in the US, Europe and Asia to ship fresh produce from growers to retailers. The increasing demand for traceability and tracking of fresh produce from ‘farm to fork’ requires these containers to be monitored and identified in ...
