Abstract

Purpose

Drawing on self-determination theory and organizational support theory, the present study explored how two styles of supervisor monitoring, namely, interactional and observational, differently impact job satisfaction and affective organizational commitment of subordinates. In addition, the mediating roles of psychological need satisfaction from the supervisor and perceived supervisory support were also investigated.

Design/methodology/approach

Responses were collected from 183 full-time employees through a web-based survey, and data were analyzed using partial least squares structural equation modeling (PLS-SEM).

Findings

Results indicate that interactional monitoring positively influences psychological need satisfaction from the supervisor and perceived supervisory support, while observational monitoring negatively influences psychological need satisfaction from the supervisor and perceived supervisory support. Psychological need satisfaction from the supervisor fully mediates the relationship between interactional monitoring and affective organizational commitment, while perceptions of supervisory support partially mediate the relationship between the two monitoring styles and job satisfaction.

Research limitations/implications

The findings of the study need to be interpreted with caution as causality could not be inferred due to the cross-sectional nature of the study.

Practical implications

Supervisors are advised to adopt an interactional style of monitoring, as it favorably influences the work attitudes of subordinates.

Originality/value

The present study is one of the few works that have examined the differential impact of supervisor monitoring styles on subordinates' work outcomes.

Abstract

Purpose

This study aims to summarize the extant literature investigating the impact of leadership styles on the knowledge-sharing behavior of followers in the organizational context.

Design/methodology/approach

A thorough review of the literature was conducted. Empirical, as well as conceptual, studies examining the relationship between leadership styles and follower knowledge-sharing behavior were reviewed.

Findings

Based on the findings of the studies reviewed, a theoretical framework is presented. The framework lists various leadership styles that have been found to significantly affect desirable individual- and team-level outcomes through a host of underlying mechanisms and subsequent knowledge sharing by the subordinates.

Practical implications

The theoretical framework proposed in this study holds direct relevance for practicing managers. It provides a range of leadership styles that managers may choose from and practice to successfully elicit knowledge sharing among their subordinates.

Originality/value

Considering the vast array of studies exploring the role of leadership in predicting followers’ knowledge-sharing behavior, the present study contributes by summarizing the scattered literature on the same. The framework is of immediate value to executives and saves hours of reading time by presenting the most relevant information in a condensed and easy-to-digest format.

Abstract

Purpose

This study aims to examine the role of leader-member exchange social comparison (LMXSC) perceptions in triggering the instigation of uncivil behavior in the workplace. This study also explores the intervening role of envy and the buffering role of aggression-preventive supervisor behavior within the proposed relationship.

Design/methodology/approach

Data were collected in two phases separated by an interval of four weeks. The final sample consisted of 224 full-time white-collar employees working in five large pharmaceutical manufacturing organizations in India.

Findings

The findings indicate that employees’ subjective perceptions of being involved in poorer-quality LMX relationships than their workgroup members generate envy, which, in turn, evokes them to instigate uncivil behaviors onto those higher-LMX counterparts. The indirect effect of LMX social comparison on instigated workplace incivility through envy gets attenuated when supervisors engage in aggression-preventive behavior.

Practical implications

To protect organizations from the financial and productivity losses associated with incivility, supervisors are encouraged to exhibit aggression-preventive behavior if they form differentiated exchange relationships with the subordinates in their teams. Supervisors are further advised to avoid the altogether neglect of lower-LMX subordinates as doing so may give rise to negative emotions (envy) and behavior (incivility) among them.

Originality/value

This study expands the limited body of knowledge on the antecedents of uncivil employee behavior in the workplace. Specifically, it unveils that incivility toward coworkers may be stemming from unfavorable LMX social comparisons and ensuing negative emotions such as envy. It also offers insights on reducing uncivil behavior by highlighting that the impact of LMXSC and envy on incivility instigation gets buffered in the presence of aggression-preventive supervisor behavior.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this study has been to understand brand India’s potential for financial inclusion in the future. As, digital channels like mobile banking (m-banking) are likely to provide better coverage and more cost-effective services to the unbanked population of India. Conventional banking might not be cost-effective for low-ticket-size transactions, hence financial inclusion, which is on the “Digital India” agenda of the Government of India (GoI), might not be feasible. However, to understand brand India’s potential for financial inclusion in the future, it would be essential to understand Indian customers’ attitudes toward m-banking, especially those who have not yet adopted it. This would bring out the potential of m-banking as a channel to drive financial inclusion based on customers’ intentions to adopt it. Until every Indian has access to a wider range of financial services, there cannot be financial inclusion. Similarly, until every Indian adopts digital channels to access a wider range of financial and non-financial services, the GoI’s initiatives for “Digital India” cannot be realized. Furthermore, a review of the literature suggests that there are very few studies concerning m-banking worldwide and still fewer in the context of India.

Design/methodology/approach

The present study used IBM SPSS and Amos software to test the conceptual model developed using secondary data.

Findings

The findings of the study suggest that subjective norm, output quality and personal innovativeness have impacts on the perceived usefulness of, and attitudes toward, the ultimate adoption of m-banking.

Originality/value

The paper is the original work of the authors. An attempt has been made to integrate all the existing literature on m-banking to develop a complete model for the technology’s adoption.

Abstract

This chapter discusses about the advancement in the field of telemedicine and how often the general public are using the services that are provide by the telehealth and telemedicine market. This chapter starts with the introduction of the medicine in the world, which were the earliest medical practice and how all that thing leads to the today’s telehealth market. This chapter also describes the models that are being used in today’s world, and how these models as implemented and how telemedicine services are implemented more efficiently. Telemedicine and telehealth market is growing day by day and a lot people are getting to know about it, but there is still some section of the society, specially the lower middle class and the people in the rural areas that do not have any access or knowledge about the concept of telehealth services.

Abstract

Purpose

The deployment of analytic hierarchy process (AHP) to help the retail industry to recognize which retail service quality (RSQ) dimensions require attention to create a sustainable competitive advantage. The purpose of this paper is to use a comparative evaluation model to compare retail stores (supermarkets) across several RSQ dimensions, validated and tested RSQ model in the context of Indian supermarkets and explore the existence of RSQ gap by studying the difference between customers’ perception and expectations.

Design/methodology/approach

This study deploys AHP in which the decision problem is broken down into hierarchy; thus customer preference involves the structuring of a hierarchy in terms of the overall objective, the selection criteria and the decision alternatives. AHP technique allows pairwise comparisons to be made among the alternatives with respect to the service dimensions.

Findings

This study validated the formal RSQ scale developed by Dabholkar et al., (1996) by a modification that led to making it more suitable to the Indian context.

Research limitations/implications

This research does not provide guidance on different course of action to be taken. Though this study identifies which service dimensions require improvement, it does not provide guidance on an appropriate action plan to address deficiencies.

Practical implications

Prospective and existing retailers can use this instrument effectively to measure the quality of their services as perceived by customers in comparison to their competition. This work will not only help the supermarkets to improve their competitive positioning in the marketplace but will help them to identify areas of services needing improvement on priority basis.

Originality/value

Application of AHP to determine the best customer preference is the first ever done in RSQ studies. It does open up another dimension for further studies.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to develop a structured model to understand mall preferences among Indian customers.

Design/methodology/approach

The present study uses fuzzy analytical hierarchy processing (FAHP). Use of Fuzzy Logic will provide a more reliable solution since it is capable of handling vagueness and uncertainty in the database.

Findings

Findings of the study suggest that the most preferred value that determines mall preference by Indian customers is HV, followed by SV, contrary to the stereotype that Indian customers are price sensitive. Forum mall is the best mall in terms of HV and SV, which motivates customers to shop at a particular mall.

Practical implications

The study will be useful for managers and academicians. The study will help managers develop a better understanding of customer's mall preferences and identify their own strengths and weaknesses. Based on this, they can devise strategies to maximize strengths by minimizing weaknesses.

Originality/value

Most of the work on FAHP is dedicated to either vendor selection or supplier selection. A study of this kind, in the context of mall preference among Indian customers is an original contribution to the literature of Indian retailing.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this study is to develop a comprehensive model of retailer–customer relationship.

Design/methodology/approach

Data were collected using questionnaires administered at organized grocery retail outlets in India. A total of 612 customers were surveyed.

Findings

Empirical evidence suggests that perception of merchandise quality depends upon perception of quality of services. It is also found that apart from store-level attributes, customer-level attributes also play an important role in retailer–customer long-term relationships.

Practical implications

Retailers would be benefited by an in-depth knowledge of factors that determine long-term relationships with customers. The finding of the study implies that efforts of retailers to retain customers should be directed toward the right set of customers. In the present study, details about customer-level attributes will benefit retailers to target the right set of customers. Academicians would be benefitted by developing in-depth understanding about different store- and customer-level attributes that determine retailer–customer long-term relationship.

Originality/value

The model developed in this study depicts the impact of retailer’s effort as perceived by customers and customer’s values, on commitment. There are very few studies in this area in the context of grocery retail which has taken customer-level attributes that motivates them to develop long-term relationships. Coming to the Indian context, very little work is being done.
