An Empirical Study Of Kirkpatrick’S Evaluation Model In The Hospitality Industry, Ya-Hui Elegance Chang

FIU Electronic Theses and Dissertations

This study examined Kirkpatrick’s training evaluation model (Kirkpatrick & Kirkpatrick, 2006) by assessing a sales training program conducted at an organization in the hospitality industry. The study assessed the employees’ training outcomes of knowledge and skills, job performance, and the impact of the training upon the organization.

The population for this study was a group of reservations sales agents from a leading luxury hotel chain’s reservations center. During the study ...

Neoliberalism And The Biophysical Environment: A Synthesis And Evaluation Of The Research, Noel Castree Jan 2010

Neoliberalism And The Biophysical Environment: A Synthesis And Evaluation Of The Research, Noel Castree

Faculty of Social Sciences - Papers (Archive)

This article both synthesizes and critically evaluates a now large, multi-disciplinary body of published research that examines the neoliberalization of environmental regulation, management, and governance. Since the late 1970s, neoliberal ideas and ideals have gradually made their way into the domain of environmental policy as part of a wider change in the global political economy. While the volume of empirical research is now such that we can draw some conclusions about this policy shift, the fact that the research has evolved piecemeal across so many different disciplines has made identifying points of similarity and difference in the findings more difficult ...

From 1999 the first Sure Start Local Programmes (SSLPs) focused on the 20% most deprived areas, including about half of children living below the official poverty line. Sure Start has evolved over ...
