In contemporary society, human resource has played an important role in enterprises management. With the change of ethos and mode of thought in enterprises and individuals, employee loyalty becomes a significant tool to measure whether the management of firms is successful and brilliant. Today an individual's career is no longer tied to a single organization, as career changes and job mobility have become phenomena(Rousseau,1998) which means two-way choice, including employees and enterprises not only have respect to the personal development of employees, but also have respect to the operation and management of enterprises.

Organizational commitment is the individual's psychology attachment to the organization. (Meyer, JP and Allen, 1991) the basis behind many of these studies was to find ways to improve how workers feel about their jobs so that these employees would become more committed to…...

: Negotiating with the Chinese: a Socio-Cultural Analysis

...Title: Negotiating with the Chinese: A Socio-Cultural Analysis Author(s): Tony Fang and Pervez Ghauri Source: Journal of World Business. 36.3 (Fall 2001): p303. Document Type: Article Full Text: COPYRIGHT 2001 JAI Press, Inc. Full Text: China has been one of the most favorite markets for Western firms for the last decade. However, doing business with China is considered difficult, mainly because negotiating with Chinese counterparts is quite complex. This paper analyses the negotiation process with China from a socio-cultural perspective. A Swedish multinational, Ericsson, is followed for several years and its negotiation process for different Chinese projects in the telecommunication industry is studied in depth. Based on these cases and literature a model is developed and some conclusions are drawn. Finally, managerial implications presented as four Ps: Priority, Patience, Price and People sum up the essence of Chinese business negotiation process. The People's Republic of China (PRC) started to open up its economy to the rest of the world in December 1978. Since then, Western business communities have been enthusiastic about China--the world's largest emerging market with more than one billion consumers. The Western enthusiasm for China decreased somewhat during a period following the Tiananmen Square incident in June 1989. But it rebounded and increased even more vigorously in the 1990s. China's rank in world trade rose from 32nd in 1978 to 9th today. By the...

Organizational Commitment

...Running head: ORGANIZATIONAL COMMITMENT 1 Organizational Commitment of Part-Time and Full-Time Employees Julia A. Teahen Baker College ORGANIZATIONAL COMMITMENT Abstract In recent years many educational institutions have increased their use of part-time adjuncts, especially with the introduction of distance learning courses. With this growing use questions about the efficacy of part-time and distance faculty have arisen. This paper tests whether organizational commitment, as described by Mowday (1979), differs between three groups of faculty: full-time, part-time, and part-time who work full-time for another organization. The 2 authors used a 15 item, seven-point scale instrument to measure commitment of a sample of 479 full and part-time faculty at two midwestern universities. Those that worked full-time for another organization are more committed to organizations for whom they work part-time than are those working only part-time. No significant difference in commitment was observed between full-time and part-time employees. ORGANIZATIONAL COMMITMENT Organizational Commitment of Part-Time and Full-Time Employees With the rapid growth of non-traditional educational institutions and enrollment, many educational institutions have added significant numbers of part-time adjuncts to teach courses. With this growth a number of questions and rhetoric have arisen about the quality of instruction from part-timers (Fulton, 2000; Leatherman, 1998; Rewick, 2001),......

Organizational Change and Employees’ Behaviors Organizational change is something that occurs most often in today’s business world. Organizational change can affect employees’ attitudes and behaviors in the workplace. Being able to recognize the types of changes and how employees are affected will better help a company in the process of a change gain a better workplace environment. The following research and studies are all based on employees’ and organizational change. Research that Shin, Taylor, & Seo (2012) based their paper on states that involvement in planned organizational change is a long, emotionally intense, stressful, and fatiguing process for most employees. The findings from the research they have done were that intense negative emotions experienced by most employees during organizational change lead them to become change averse and reluctant to enact supportive behaviors directed at achieving goals set by organizations’ leaders. One argument they had was that one way to boost and sustain employees’ commitment to change is to build up their individual resources prior to the start of a change process. Those individual resources......

Organizational Analysis

...1. Executive Summary As the word metaphor is all about finding similarity and meaning in two or more things that are not actually related to each other, often members of organizations based on the picture that is created in their minds associates and recognize organization to metaphors. The organizational culture and communication system determines the perception of the metaphors in the organization. Our research was carried out in the Dubai branch of XYZ Company, a Swedish telecommunication company, to provide an analysis of the organization by observing it from two metaphoric perspectives: the cultural and the political. Organizational culture encompasses values and believes of the founder and is reflected in the structure, the practices and procedures of the organization, determining the working atmosphere and behaviors of its employees. Through our research we tried to discover how the members of the organization perceive and portray their commitment in association to XYZ’s culture; its influence on decision making process and progress of the organization. Through the political metaphor, we view organizations as often formed and administered similarly to political systems, which can be run like autocracies, bureaucracies, democracies or a mixture of these. Within them, individuals and groups manage situations, personal or group interests through the use of negotiations, power and politics. They operate based on network of alliances just like in political......
