 Employee Empowerment and Employee Performance:

An Empirical Study on Selected Banks in UAE       

I. Bose        

The fundamental goal of HR in an organization is to effectively manage its employees by encouraging positive attitudes like increasing productivity, job satisfaction, motivation and organizational citizenship behaviour and reducing negative employee attitudes like increased turnover, absenteeism and deviant work place behaviour. The present study has attempted to impact of employee empowerment on employee performance in banking industry in UAE, mainly when the sector has witnessed many crisis in recent times. Responses were collected via survey based on structured questionnaire on 80 employees. Collected responses were analysed and formulated hypotheses have been tested with the use of standard statistical tools such as mean, standard deviation, one sample t-test, correlation coefficient etc. The responses analysis and hypotheses testing have shown certain phenomenon. For example, it has been found that in the present situation the employees in the banking industry in UAE are not motivated to enhance their performance. Regarding the issue of employee empowerment, further improvements have been suggested based on research findings. Finally, the relationship between the employee empowerment and employee performance has also been found of not having significant relationship in the present banking scenario. Further research on different aspects of uncovered or not covered areas has been suggested.

    Modelling the Efficient Frontier: An Empirical Study in the Indian Stock Market           

M. Dash

The objective of the study was to understand the nature and shape of the efficient frontier for the Indian stock market over time, and to empirically examine Merton’s model for the efficient frontier in the context of the Indian stock market. The study was performed using a sample of fifty stocks that were part of the National Stock Exchange’s Nifty 50 index as of March 31, 2011. The study period was 2000-2011. The main finding of the study is that Merton’s model does not entirely explain the relationship between variance of returns and mean returns on the efficient frontier. Thus, a higher-order polynomial function may be more appropriate for modelling the efficient frontier. Also, the factors affecting the efficient frontier need to be studied in future studies.

  Fat Tails, Value at Risk, and the Palladium Returns

J. Ding, T. Guo, B. Guo

The past decade has witnessed the rapid growing of the world palladium market. Thus, it is even more important to develop effective quantitative tools for risk management of palladium assets at this moment. In this paper, the authors investigated five different types of widely-used statistical distributions and employ the industry standard risk measurement, value at risk (VaR), for risk management of daily palladium spot returns. First the four different criteria were applied to compare the goodness of fit of the five distributions, and then calculate the VaRs based on the parameters estimated from the first step. The results indicate the skewed t distribution has the best in-sample fitting and generate VaR values closest to the nonparametric historical VaR values.

Keywords:  skewed t distribution, goodness of fit, risk management, precious metal

 Improving the Functioning of an Organisation Implementing the Integrated Management System      

E. Gross-Gołacka

The development of an organisation should be the result of multi-directional improving activities. During times of increasing clients’ expectations and changes in management standards at units of the public finance sector, models and methods of improving the quality of public services are used more often, as they take into account the expectations and needs of the modern recipient. One of the areas of significant improvement when it comes to the development of an organisation is the integrated management system. As a result of a successful implementation of the integrated management system, one can expect sustainable development from an organisation both in its external and internal activities, as well as bringing additional benefits for the environment and the employees. This article presents examples of quality-based activities, originating from analysing the implementation process of the integrated management system at a unit of the public finance sector. The analyses have concluded that it is essential to share a common understanding of the intricacies of quality, to define it jointly and to create an environment, which supports it – through a quality-based organisational culture, which will allow a quality-based work orientation to be built.

   A Study of the Influence of Emotional Intelligence on Individual Innovation Behaviour

X. Hu, T. He

When society overvalues non-intelligence factors related to innovation, the research about emotional intelligence and innovation behaviour is very meaningful. Based on the structure equation model, the paper expounds the influence of emotional intelligence’s four dimensions on individual innovation behaviour and explores the mechanism of constructive controversy as a partial mediator. In addition, the samples collected in this paper include the team of the enterprise, the course work of the college students and the innovation competition groups, so the conclusion has extensive application values.

Keywords: emotional intelligence, innovation behaviour, constructive controversy, structural equation model
