Corporate Philanthropy: A Systematic Review, Priya Yash Pal Sharma 2021 University of Windsor

Corporate Philanthropy: A Systematic Review, Priya Yash Pal Sharma

Major Papers

A systematic review of the corporate philanthropy literature is conducted. A sample of 60 academic articles was created and analyzed. The sample was examined to (1) develop a definition of corporate philanthropy contrasting it with related concepts; (2) review how corporate philanthropy has been examined theoretically; (3) review how it has been operationalized and determine commonly examined control, independent and dependent variables; (4) the societal implications of corporate philanthropy and (5) identify gaps in the literature and areas for future research. Findings suggest there is little cohesion in the literature regarding a standard definition, wide use of theories to situate ...

Exploring The Correlation Between Information And Communication Technology Maturity And Value Of Listed Companies In The Nigerian Stock Exchange, Victor Akinbola Olutayo, Godspower Osaretin Ekuobase

The African Journal of Information Systems

A fundamental issue within the Nigerian economy that has resulted in information and communication technology (ICT) mis-planning is the uncertainty surrounding how ICT value relates to ICT maturity. In response, the value-added intellectual coefficient model has been used to measure the value of ICT across sectors in the Nigerian stock exchange while their ICT maturity has been measured using the ICT maturity model for small-and-medium scale enterprises. The result has shown that the Nigerian economy is web based in ICT maturity with an index of about 0.67. The ICT value index has been estimated to be about 5.65 ...

Competitive Rationales: Beneath The Surface Of Competitive Behavior, Goce Andrevski, Danny Miller, Isabelle Le Breton-Miller, Walter Ferrier

Management Faculty Publications

Competitive dynamics research has focused on studying whether rivals are able and likely to carry out competitive actions, typically by examining indirect reasons such as characteristics of the actions themselves, the firms involved, or the competitive context. We explore why rivals initiate a specific competitive action at a particular time and situation. Drawing from the philosophy of action literature, we introduce the concept of competitive rationales to examine the primary reasons that cause tactical actions. Given the rapid exchanges characterizing tactical competitive dynamics, we conducted an inductive, multicase study to explore the reasons behind over 800 discrete tactical decisions carried ...

An Environmental, Social, and Governance Index consisting of 33 companies was created based on four different ESG rating agencies. In order to perform a meaningful comparison between said ESG Index and the S&P benchmark, the researcher used Eventus software to conduct an event study. Eventus analyzed stock price data of ESG and S&P companies at a specific point in time over a period of five years. It was determined that the ESG companies performed significantly stronger in ...


Robotics In Last Mile Delivery, Virginia L. Thomassy 2021 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Robotics In Last Mile Delivery, Virginia L. Thomassy

EURēCA: Exhibition of Undergraduate Research and Creative Achievement

Drones, bots, and autonomous vehicles, oh my! The innovation hype surrounding these autonomous delivery devices has the logistics industry striving to implement automated last mile delivery strategies. While there are few instances of drones making door step deliveries today, the possibility of such deliveries becoming a common occurrence is certainly on the horizon. With no concrete published data proving that drone doorstep delivery is better than the usual truck and delivery man, the question to be answered is it worth the resources to implement robotics in the last mile delivery? The purpose of this research study is to explore how ...


The Cost Of Big Data: Evaluating The Effects Of The European Union’S General Data Protection Regulation, Kara Rebecca White 2021 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

The Cost Of Big Data: Evaluating The Effects Of The European Union’S General Data Protection Regulation, Kara Rebecca White

EURēCA: Exhibition of Undergraduate Research and Creative Achievement

In the 1990’s the World Wide Web was created, drastically changing the way we do business, communicate, and live our lives. Ten years later in the early 2000’s the dot com boom happened, and several years later, new technology giants emerged—like Amazon, Google, and Facebook. From this, we now face “big data” that promises to solve world problems, but has the potential to create turmoil and malfeasance. My research examines the impact of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) enacted in the EU in 2016 on firm value using Tobin’s Q and CARs. Using regression analyses ...


The House Edge And Play Time: Do Industry Heuristics Fairly Describe This Relationship?, Anthony F. Lucas, A.K. Singh 2021 UNLV

The House Edge And Play Time: Do Industry Heuristics Fairly Describe This Relationship?, Anthony F. Lucas, A.K. Singh

UNLV Gaming Research & Review Journal

Based on modified versions of licensed pay tables from reel slot machines, simulations of play failed to indicate a statistically significant difference in the spins per losing player (SPLP), despite a marked difference in the pars (i.e., 7.9% vs. 12.9%). To reflect a volume of play consistent with frequent gambling, the simulations included results from 1-4 visits per week, for the equivalent of one year. Additionally, this level of play was repeated for 100 “years,” within multiple scenarios of buy-in amounts and stoppage-of-play criteria. Still, most outcomes indicated a negligible decline in SPLP, in spite of the ...

Data Analytics (Ab)Use In Healthcare Fraud Audits, Jared Koreff, M. Weisner, S. G. Sutton

School of Business Faculty Research

This study explores how government-adopted audit data analytic tools promote the abuse of power by auditors enabling politically sensitive processes that encourage industry-wide normalization of behavior. In an audit setting, we investigate how a governmental organization enables algorithmic decision-making to alter power relationships to effect organizational and industry-wide change. While prior research has identified discriminatory threats emanating from the deployment of algorithmic decision-making, the effects of algorithmic decision-making on inherently imbalanced power relationships have received scant attention. Our results provide empirical evidence of how systemic and episodic power relationships strengthen each other, thereby enabling the governmental organization to effect social ...


Corporate Social Responsibility And Financial Performance: Does Board Diversity Matter?, Ozgur Ozdemir, Murat Kizildag, Tarik Dogru, Ilhan Demirer 2021 University of Nevada, Las Vegas

Corporate Social Responsibility And Financial Performance: Does Board Diversity Matter?, Ozgur Ozdemir, Murat Kizildag, Tarik Dogru, Ilhan Demirer

Journal of Global Business Insights

In this study, the moderating effect of board diversity on the complex relationship between corporate social responsibility (CSR) performance and financial performance is examined. The resource-based view of the firm and stakeholder theory are used as the theoretical foundation of the study. The hypotheses of the study are tested via fixed-effects regression using data for a sample of 1,234 firms and 5,102 firm-year observations for the period 2009–2013. The study finds evidence that CSR performance and financial performance are positively related, and the magnitude of this relationship is contingent on the level of board diversity. As corporate ...

Artificial Intelligence And Work: Two Perspectives, Steven Miller, Thomas H. Davenport

Research Collection School Of Computing and Information Systems

One of the most important issues in contemporary societies is the impact of intelligent technologies on human work. For an empirical perspective on the issue, we recently completed 30 case studies of people collaborating with AI-enabled smart machines. Twenty-four were from North America, mostly in the US. Six were from Southeast Asia, mostly in Singapore. We compare some of our observations to one of the broadest academic examinations of the issue. In particular, we focus on our case study observations with regard to key findings from the MIT Task Force on the Work of the Future report.
