Abstract

Increasingly there is a demand for information on the effectiveness of Employee Assistance Programmes (EAPs) and counselling in the workplace. EAPs need to be evaluated to ascertain the extent to which they reach their objectives and to find ways to improve effectiveness. Discusses the pros and cons of assessment methods such as questionnaires and the use of a comparison group to act as a control group for research purposes. Considers the importance of maintaining confidentiality during research as this is a cornerstone of any successful EAP. Covers the practical problems of evaluation at an organizational level and use of available data; and the difficulties of establishing and maintaining rapport with management and programme personnel.

Abstract

This paper investigates the economic implications of applying different sanctions, notably criminal penalties, the suspension or revocation of licences and administrative fines to environmental regulatory contraventions. Using familiar economics of law enforcement models, we predict that the almost exclusive reliance by British environment agencies on criminal justice sanctions leads to under-deterrence. We argue that the agencies should be given powers to levy administrative financial charges from offenders without the procedures and onus of proof with which the criminal process protects defendants, but which also inhibits prosecution. The German system of Ordnungswidrigkeit provides an excellent model for this purpose.

Abstract

The following is an annotated list of materials that discuss the ways in which librarians can provide library users with orientation to facilities and services, and instruct them in library information and computer skills. This is RSR's 11th annual review of this literature, and covers publications from 1984. A few items from 1983 have been included because of their significance, and because they were not available for review last year. Several items were not annotated because the compiler was unable to secure them.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to reflect on the 2004 AAAJ special issue (SI): “Accounting and theology, an introduction: Initiating a dialogue between immediacy and eternity,” the relative immediate impact of the call for papers and the relevance of the theme to address issues in accounting today and in the future.

Design/methodology/approach

The paper is a reflection and is framed around three different modes of engagement with new perspectives as identified by Orlikowski (2015). These are religion as phenomenon, as perspective and as a worldview. The authors draw on Burrell and Morgan’s (1979) framework in order to explore the ontological and epistemological blinkers that have limited the attempts to explore accounting from a theological perspective.

Findings

The paper argues that historical and current structures can limit the manner in which accounting research uses theological perspectives. Indeed, the concerns of the initial SI remain – that the contemporary economic and knowledge system is in crisis and alternative ways of questioning are required to understand and respond to this system.

Research limitations/implications

As a reflection, this paper is subject to limitations of author bias relating to our beliefs, ethnicities and culture. The authors have sought to reduce these by drawing on a wide range of sources, critical analysis and the input of feedback from other scholars. Nevertheless, the narrative of impact remains a continuing story.

Originality/value

In drawing on both an original SI guest editor and a scholar for whom the 2004 SI has become a touchstone and springboard, this paper provides multiple viewpoints on the issue of accounting and theology.
