The purpose of this study is to investigate the interplay of skill-enhancing human resources (HR) practices, innovativeness and firm performance.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this study is to investigate the interplay of skill-enhancing human resources (HR) practices, innovativeness and firm performance.

Design/methodology/approach

Data from 211 valid cases were gathered through an online survey and face-to-face interviews with Albanian tourism firms. Structural equation modeling was implemented to test the proposed hypotheses.

Findings

The results suggest that HR training has a positive influence on innovativeness, which in turn affects positively firm performance. Thus, there is a mediation effect of innovativeness in the link between training and performance.

Research limitations/implications

The findings are in line with the strategic perspective on HR management, which suggests that HR practices are likely to indirectly affect firm performance. However, results should be interpreted with caution due to the cross-sectional nature of the data.

Practical implications

HR training practices may help tourism firms to increase their innovation orientation and ultimately improve their performance outcomes.

Originality/value

Investigating the mediation role of innovativeness on the relationship between skill-enhancing HR practices and firm performance within the tourism context is the core contribution.

Prácticas de recursos humanos que mejoran las habilidades y desempeño de la empresa: el papel mediador de la innovación

Propósito

El propósito de este estudio es investigar la interacción de las prácticas de recursos humanos (RRHH) que mejoran las habilidades, la innovación y el desempeño de la empresa.

Diseño/metodología/enfoque

Los datos de 211 casos válidos se recopilaron a través de una encuesta en línea y de entrevistas personales con empresas de turismo albanesas. Se implementó un modelo de ecuaciones estructurales para probar las hipótesis propuestas.

Resultados

Los resultados sugieren que la formación de RR.HH. tiene una influencia positiva en la innovación, la cual a su vez afecta positivamente al rendimiento de la empresa. Por tanto, existe un efecto mediador de la innovación en la relación entre formación y rendimiento.

Limitaciones/implicaciones de la investigación

Los hallazgos están en línea con la perspectiva estratégica sobre la gestión de RRHH, que sugiere que las prácticas de RRHH pueden afectar indirectamente el desempeño de la empresa. Sin embargo, los resultados deben interpretarse con precaución debido a la naturaleza transversal de los datos.

Implicaciones prácticas

Las prácticas de formación de RRHH pueden ayudar a las empresas de turismo a aumentar su orientación hacia la innovación y, en última instancia, mejorar sus resultados.

Originalidad/valor

Investigar el papel mediador de la innovación en la relación entre las prácticas de RRHH que mejoran las habilidades y el desempeño de la empresa dentro del contexto turístico es la contribución principal.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to investigate the significant supply chain issues in the small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) food industry. The objectives are to identify the major themes and the dynamic evolution of SME food supply chain (FSC) issues, the current research trends, the different modelling approaches used in SME FSC, and the most addressed SME food sector.

Design/methodology/approach

In all, 3,733 published articles from 2002 to 2018 in the Clarivate Analytics Web of Science database were collected, from which 1,091 articles were shortlisted for the review. The authors used bibliographic coupling combined with co-word analysis to identify the historical relations of the research themes that emerged during the periods 2002–2014 and 2002–2018.

Findings

This research identified five major research themes such as production and distribution in alternative food networks, relationship, safety and standards in the FSC, greenhouse gas (GHG) emission impact of the farm food system, traceability and product quality in FSC and asymmetric price transmission in the FSC. Among the identified themes, GHG emission impact of the farm food system and traceability and product quality in the FSC have received increasing attention in recent years. The dairy sector is the most addressed sector (36 per cent), followed by fruits and vegetables (27 per cent), meat and poultry (18 per cent), seafood (10 per cent) and grains and oilseed (8 per cent). It is also identified that the dairy sector has received significant attention in the “GHG Emission impact of farm food system” theme. Similarly, meat and poultry sectors have received much attention in the “Traceability and product quality in the food supply chain” theme. Also, the authors identified that the empirical modelling approaches are the most commonly used solution methodology, followed by the conceptual/qualitative methods in the SME FSC.

Originality/value

This study maps and summarizes the existing knowledge base of supply chain issues in the SME food sector. The results of this review provide the major research areas, most commonly used approaches and food sectors addressed. This study also highlights the research gaps and potential future research direction.
