Utility Analysis For Decisions In Human Resource Management, John W. Boudreau Dec 1988

Utility Analysis For Decisions In Human Resource Management, John W. Boudreau

CAHRS Working Paper Series

[Excerpt] This chapter will discuss utility analysis (VA), which attempts to answer such questions by focusing on decisions about human resources. Utility analysis refers to the process that describes, predicts and/or explains what determines the usefulness or desirability of decision options, and examines how that information affects decisions. In HRM and I/O psychology, the focus lies on decisions involving employment relationships and employee behaviors. Thus, I/O psychologists use the term utility analysis to refer to a specific set of models that reflect the consequences, usually performance-related, of programs designed to enhance the value of the work force ...


Organizational Differences In Managerial Compensation And Financial Performance, Barry A. Gerhart, George T. Milkovich Dec 1988

Organizational Differences In Managerial Compensation And Financial Performance, Barry A. Gerhart, George T. Milkovich

CAHRS Working Paper Series

The present study has two general purposes. First, based on the compensation strategy literature, we examine the extent to which organizations facing similar conditions make different managerial compensation decisions regarding base pay, bonus pay, and eligibility for long-term incentives. Second, working from expectancy and agency theory perspectives, we explore the consequences of these decisions for subsequent firm performance as measured by return on assets. Using longitudinal data on approximately 16,000 top and middle level managers and 200 organizations, significant between-organization differences in compensation decisions are found. The smallest organization effects are on the level of base pay. The largest ...

Effects Of Local Economic Conditions On Poverty Status Of U.S. Rural Husband-Wife Households, Wallace E. Huffman Dec 1988

Effects Of Local Economic Conditions On Poverty Status Of U.S. Rural Husband-Wife Households, Wallace E. Huffman

Economic Staff Paper Series

In the mid-1960s, poverty in the United States became a major national issue (Danziger and Weinberg 1986). An official definition was adopted and new programs were initiated to eradicate poverty. According to official sources the poverty rate fell from 22.2 percent in 1960 to 12.1 percent in 1969; the rate started rising in 1979.-'' The poverty rate among the nonmetropolitan population is higher than for the metropopulation- (USDA 1987). Although differences between the two rates narrowed during 1967-79, it widened again during 1979-85. The poverty rate (ignoring in-kind transfers) of the nonmetro-population did not start to decline again ...

Wanted: Live-In Teachers, Chester Smolski

"Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia, Detroit and Cleveland all have it--a residency requirement--and so does Providence. Having to live in the city for which you work has been deemed to be an important measure in helping to bring people back into the city, and that was the reason it was included in the 1980 Home Rule Charter."

Sas No. 58: Did The Asb Really Listen?, Marshall A. Geiger Dec 1988

Sas No. 58: Did The Asb Really Listen?, Marshall A. Geiger

Accounting Faculty Publications

One thousand-plus letters are a lot of mail. That's how many comments the American Institute of CPAs auditing standards board received when it proposed 10 new standards to help close the expectations gap between what auditors perceive as their responsibility and what the public thinks. Did the ASB really listen to these comment letters before finalizing nine SASs, or did it simply solicit the comments to fulfill the standard-setting, due-process procedures mandated by the AICPA board of directors?


Generic Advertising Without Supply Control: Models And Public Policy Issues, Dermot J. Hayes, Helen H. Jensen Dec 1988

Generic Advertising Without Supply Control: Models And Public Policy Issues, Dermot J. Hayes, Helen H. Jensen

CARD Working Papers

Both producers and consumers may respond to the use of producer contributions to fund commodity promotion. The microeconomic foundation is laid for evaluating generic promotion campaigns where government is involved, supply is uncontrolled, and markets are close to saturation. The recent legislation enabling beef and pork promotion provides an application for the model.


Bunk Attendance Of Feedlot Cattle Monitored With Radio Frequency Technology, D. J. Gibb, T. A. Mcalllister, C. Huisma, R. D. Wiedmeier Dec 1988

Bunk Attendance Of Feedlot Cattle Monitored With Radio Frequency Technology, D. J. Gibb, T. A. Mcalllister, C. Huisma, R. D. Wiedmeier

Management and Monitoring of Farm Animals Collection

Bunk attendance of 72 feedlot cattle (412 ± 23.6 kg) was monitored for 86 d using radio frequency technology. Late morning and late afternoon were confirmed as primary ad libitum feeding periods. The system detected differences (P < 0.005) in feeding behaviour in response to level of feeding and frequency of meals.


Integrating Multiple Criteria Decision-Making Models Into The Decision Support System Framework For Marketing Decisions, Rajshekhar G. Javalgi, Hemant K. Jain Dec 1988

Integrating Multiple Criteria Decision-Making Models Into The Decision Support System Framework For Marketing Decisions, Rajshekhar G. Javalgi, Hemant K. Jain

Marketing

The paper focuses on integrating the multiple criteria decision making (MCDM) models within the decision support system (DSS) framework to encourage greater use of these models. A DSS framework and the criteria used for the choice of a model is discussed. Based on these criteria MCDM models generally used in the marketing field are evaluated. The possibility of using a mixture of MCDM models within the DSS framework is also explored. Following this, the role of the MCDM models in DSS is delineated. It is argued that, within the problem-solving process, the confluence of MCDM models and DSS plays a ...


Comparability And Hierarchical Processing In Multialternative Choice, Michael D. Johnson Dec 1988

Comparability And Hierarchical Processing In Multialternative Choice, Michael D. Johnson

Articles and Chapters

Consumer choice research recently moved beyond brand-based decisions to study the more noncomparable choices consumers often face. Noncomparable choice processing in choices involving multiple products is discussed. In Experiment 1, consumers used attribute-based processing at an abstract level and alternative-based processing at a concrete level to evaluate more noncomparable alternatives independent of choice set size. In Experiment 2, the choices from Experiment 1 were compared with choices within which products varied in comparability. The results suggest that comparability variance within a multialternative choice set facilitates consumers' use of product categories and hierarchical processing to eliminate choice alternatives.


The Education Reform Movement And The Realities Of Collective Bargaining, Robert E. Doherty, David B. Lipsky Dec 1988

The Education Reform Movement And The Realities Of Collective Bargaining, Robert E. Doherty, David B. Lipsky

Articles and Chapters

[Excerpt] The response to what many believe to be a serious decline in educational achievement and standards has been, so far, a spate of studies, commissions, and reports, all aiming toward reform of the education system. Most of the recommendations that have been implemented to date have come about through state-level legislation and mandates (Darling-Hammond and Berry, 1988). Education reformers disagree on the role of teacher bargaining in achieving their objectives. One wing of the reform movement believes collective bargaining is an obstacle to change and maintains collective bargaining is one reason the schools are in bad shape. But another ...

Diversity, Diversification And Profitability Among British Manufacturing Companies, Robert M. Grant, Azar P. Jammine, Howard Thomas Dec 1988

Diversity, Diversification And Profitability Among British Manufacturing Companies, Robert M. Grant, Azar P. Jammine, Howard Thomas

Research Collection Lee Kong Chian School Of Business

This study investigated the causal relationships between diversity, diversification, and profitability among 304 large British manufacturing companies that differed in both product and multinational diversity. Diversity and profitability were positively related up to a point; after that point, increases in product diversity were associated with declining profitability. The results were unclear with respect to the underlying causal relationships. Product diversification did not increase profitability, and there was limited evidence that profitability promoted diversification. For multinational diversification, however, we found that profitability in the home market encouraged overseas expansion that in turn increased profitability.

Unions And The Contingent Work Force, Kate Bronfenbrenner Nov 1988

Unions And The Contingent Work Force, Kate Bronfenbrenner

Articles and Chapters

[Excerpt] Unions seeking to organize the unorganized face increasing numbers of part-time, temporary and leased employees. These contingent workers now make up more than a quarter of the American work force. Of the new work force they are the least organized and perhaps the most difficult to organize. But they are also the group most in need of the protections, benefits and representation that a union can provide.

There have always been some service industries such as hotel, health care and retail, that have maintained a large contingent work force because of long hours and fluctuating demand. Also there have ...


The Politics Of The Education Reform Movement: Some Implications For The Future Of Teacher Bargaining, David B. Lipsky Nov 1988

The Politics Of The Education Reform Movement: Some Implications For The Future Of Teacher Bargaining, David B. Lipsky

Articles and Chapters

[Excerpt] In summary, the ongoing battle over education reform and emerging demographic trends do not bode well for the success of reform efforts in this country and probably mean tougher, if nonetheless more interesting, days at the bargaining table.

In recent years taxpayers have been willing to support increased expenditures for public education. But sooner or later taxpayers will want to see results. Both liberal and conservative politicians have been staunch supporters of the school reform movement, but politicians are a notoriously fickle group.

To improve the quality of education, we need a sustained effort over an indefinite period of ...

Dynamic Adjustment In The U.S. Dairy Industry, Wayne H. Howard, Richard C. Shumway Nov 1988

Dynamic Adjustment In The U.S. Dairy Industry, Wayne H. Howard, Richard C. Shumway

Agribusiness

A dual model is used to examine the dynamic structure of the U.S. dairy industry. Properties implied by the theory of the competitive firm and independent adjustment of two quasi-fixed inputs, labor and herd size, are tested and not rejected. Instantaneous adjustment, however, is soundly rejected for each quasi-fixed input. Input adjustment to optimal levels is estimated to take about two years for labor and ten for cows. Quality adjustments of the labor and cow series do not fully embody the technological change that has occurred in this industry over the study period.


Linkages Between Regulated And Unregulated Markets: The Case Of Milk Supply In Kenya, Wayne H. Howard, Ian Mcdonald Nov 1988

Linkages Between Regulated And Unregulated Markets: The Case Of Milk Supply In Kenya, Wayne H. Howard, Ian Mcdonald

Agribusiness

Linkages between the regulated and unregulated dairy markets in Kenya were examined using an econometric model of the fluid milk intake for eight processing plants. Counter-intuitive results were obtained: an increase in the regulated price was significant in decreasing intake in the regulated market, indicating that a price increase in the regulated market also increased price and quantity supplied in the unregulated market. Lagged rainfall was a proxy for available feed and was highly significant in explaining milk intake in the regulated market.

Initial Test Of A Farrowing Crate With Inward-Sloping Sides, D. Fraser, P. A. Phillips, B. K. Thompson Nov 1988

Initial Test Of A Farrowing Crate With Inward-Sloping Sides, D. Fraser, P. A. Phillips, B. K. Thompson

Housing and Confinement of Farm Animals Collection

A farrowing crate was designed with sides spaced well apart (1150 mm) at the sow's standing height but angled inward near the floor to restrict the sow's lying area and to prevent the sow from dropping suddenly onto one side. Survival and body-weight data were collected for 20 farrowings in the prototype crate and for 18-20 farrowings in each of 3 other crate types. No significant differences were found in stillbirth rate, other deaths to 14 days, or average piglet weight gains, but gains were somewhat more variable in one of the conventional designs which interfered with the ...

Development Of A Weighted Application Blank For The Carryout Clerk Classification In A Large Retail Organization, Linda Gabbard Nov 1988

Development Of A Weighted Application Blank For The Carryout Clerk Classification In A Large Retail Organization, Linda Gabbard

Masters Theses & Specialist Projects

The purpose of this study was to develop and validate a Weighted Application Blank to predict turnover for use as a selection tool for a large retail organization. Utilizing the England (1971) procedure, it was hypothesized that significant derivation and cross-validities would be obtained. The hypothesis was partially supported: the derivation validity coefficient was significant (r = .28, p < .01) and the resulting cross-validity coefficient was net significant (r = 19, p < .05). The results and recommendations for implementation of the WAB are discussed.
