Through the Decreased Values Gap to Increased Organizational Effectiveness: The Mediating Role of Organizational Commitment( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The purpose of this article is to clarify whether congruence between espoused and attributed organizational values (CEAOV) in contemporary business circumstances is a necessity or just 'nice to have'. Accordingly, two objectives are formulated: (a) to investigate whether CEAOV has a direct impact on organizational effectiveness and (b) to assess the mediating effect of organizational commitment between CEAOV and organizational effectiveness. The research was conducted within 15 Croatian companies (n = 523). Data were collected through content analysis of the official websites of the companies, surveys of employees, semi-structured interviews with the members of top management and analysis of publicly available financial reports. A conceptual model is proposed regarding the mediating effect of organizational commitment on the impact of the espoused-attributed value fit on effectiveness. Structural equation modelling (SEM) was used for the analysis. The results show that CEAOV positively affects organizational effectiveness through the mediation of organizational commitment. The only path to attaining effectiveness is through commitment. No direct effect is found. Our research sheds light on the relevant role of authenticity, in the light of value congruence, in every organization. When employees and organizations live their values to the same degree, there is an impact on organizational commitment and hence on organizational effectiveness
Human resource management practices and employee job satisfaction in nonprofit organizations( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

ABSTRACT: The purpose of this study is to establish a measurement scale for human resource management (HRM) practices in nonprofit organizations and to analyze their impact on employee job satisfaction. An exploratory factor analysis (EFA) using a principal components was performed. The analyzed sample is composed of 62 organizations with 2, 030 employees. The results demonstrate that 8 out of 20 analyzed variables determine the measurement scale of HRM practices in these organizations. These variables are related to psychological demands, active work and development possibilities, social relations and leadership, and the degree of coherence in the organization with its principles. According to the results, these practices have an impact on employee job satisfaction. We believe that these results are relevant due to the lack of similar studies and the relevance of nonprofit organizations as job creators in the European Union

Social Accountability 8000 standard certification: analysis of worldwide diffusion( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: This study analyzes the worldwide diffusion of the Social Accountability 8000 standard certification in sixty-five countries and sixty-six activity sectors from 1999 to 2011. The logistic curve model is used to assess the current situation on both a global scale and a local scale. Additionally, instability and concentration indices are used to analyze whether the diffusion process developed in a homogeneous manner across countries and economic sectors. The results (i) increase the understanding of SA8000's diffusion, (ii) provide an exploratory descriptive analysis of the current SA8000 diffusion worldwide in both macro and microanalyses compared with other standards and (iii) identify future trends in SA8000 diffusion concluding that currently SA8000 follows a similar pattern than other standards and, in consequence, a growing trend is expected in next years. These findings suggest some challenges and opportunities. The standard must be more flexible to accommodate the differing perspectives of cultures, increase the dialogue with stakeholders, and include more small companies from developing countries
Quality management systems in European social service organizations( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to analyze from an adopters' perspective the European Quality in Social Services (EQUASS) Assurance standard, a certification program to implement a quality management (QM) system specifically tailored to European social service organizations (SSO). Specifically, it analyzes the motives, internalization, impacts, satisfaction, and renew intentions of this standard. Design/methodology/approach: The research uses a cross-sectional, questionnaire-based survey methodology with both closed and open-ended questions. Of the 381 organizations contacted, 196 responses from eight different European countries were considered valid (51.4 percent). Descriptive statistical techniques and content analysis were employed to analyze closed- and open-ended questions, respectively. Findings: The results show that SSO typically implement the certification for internal reasons, internalize EQUASS Assurance principles and practices in daily usage, obtain mainly operational and customer benefits, and consider main pitfalls such as increased workload and bureaucracy. Around 85 percent of the respondents are very satisfied or satisfied with the standard, which suggests that it meets their needs. The intention to renew the certification is also encouraging, but the final decision may be contingent on several aspects. Overall, the results reveal a rather optimistic picture, though there are some reasons for concern. Originality/value: Recent years have seen many social services implementing QM systems, but there have been few studies investigating this phenomenon. Social service managers, consultants, auditors, and the EQUASS certification body can find in this work valuable information to make their practice more effective. This is the first study to report the results of an EQUASS survey in a scholarly journal
Building loyalty through functional and hedonic quality( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

<Title><x>Abstract</x></title><sec><title>Purpose</title>- The purpose of this paper is to propose and test an e-quality model for leisure products purchased online. Two dimensions are considered in order to configure the scale: functional quality and hedonic quality.</sec><sec><title>Design/methodology/approach</title>- Based on a survey conducted on a sample of 1,109 online customers who had bought travel leisure products, the model and hypotheses were validated using structural equation modeling analysis.</sec><sec><title>Findings</title>- The results reveal that both quality dimensions, through an e-quality second order dimension, are critical to obtaining loyalty through perceived value. In terms of functional quality, however, privacy is not significant for consumers because security programs have improved. Moreover, the e-quality - perceived value - loyalty service chain has been confirmed. In addition, a partial mediating effect of perceived value between e-quality and loyalty has been detected.</sec><sec><title>Practical implications</title>- e-Service managers must be aware of the importance of hedonic quality in seeking to attract and retain customers on their web sites. On the other hand, it has to be considered not only direct effects for evaluating customer loyalty, but also the mediator effect of perceived value is needed.</sec><sec><title>Originality/value</title>- From now on, the paper forecasts that "hedonics" will be present in future scales designed to assess e-quality, although what is really valued as important is still functional quality.</sec>
