Abstract

Purpose

The paper tries to understand the needs of the international assignees across the different stages of expatriation and how different developers in the professional and non-professional sphere render support and advice through these stages.

Design/methodology/approach

In this paper, the authors have interviewed 20 expatriates of various nationalities and tried to understand the various needs of the expatriates across the three initial stages of an assignment.

Findings

The paper finds that four important mentors in an expatriation assignment play multiple need-based mentoring functions at various assignment stages: host country nationals (HCNs), parent country nationals, fellow expatriates and family.

Research limitations/implications

This paper contributes to the literature on the need-based support rendered to expatriates during an international assignment. The paper, however, does not incorporate the perceptions of other vital stakeholders in the network and their intentions to contribute to the developmental network.

Practical implications

This paper lays down important practical implications for expatriates and the human resource management (HRM) professionals. This paper urges the practitioners to take a nuanced approach for developing expatriates than a generalized mentoring programme.

Originality/value

This study highlights the changing needs of the international assignees across the stages of an international assignment and demonstrates the important intra-organizational and extra-organizational developers such as family members in the fulfilment of these needs.

Abstract

There have been plans to merge UCO Bank with larger banks owing to its poor performance for many years. There were leaders in the history who had not been committed. The inadequate governance of the bank has been responsible for some of the major lapses. Mr. Arun Kaul took strategic initiatives and systematically strengthened the functioning of the board. It enabled the bank to turnaround and report profits in challenging economic conditions. The Bank is not yet completely safe and probably need strengthening of its competencies to emerging challenges.

Abstract

The Chairman of the 60-year old company Texica, Ashutosh Verma approached Dr. Asim Vakil who had wide experience in consulting turnaround activities in declining organizations. The organization had undergone a few rounds of downsizing and was also reporting about 15–20% attrition in the organization. Vakil was requested to redesign the job description and the appraisal system of the employees. He found several gaps in the existing process. The human resource processes were not well-structured and the key performance indicators of the employees were not communicated to them properly. So, the team decided to deep-dive into the activity based job allocation to different employees and found interesting results. They decided to discuss their results with the Chairman. The Chairman asked the team to discuss the results with the top management of the organization. The meeting was aimed at identifying not only the operational issues in the organization but also the attitudinal problems in the organization.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to propose and generate initial evidence on the psychometric properties of a re‐conceptualized organizational career system (OCS).

Design/methodology/approach

Data were collected from head of HR/head of business units on the career system variables. Reliability and exploratory factor analysis using SPSS and confirmatory factor analysis using AMOS helped the authors to test the theoretically derived factor structure. The psychometric properties of the three‐factor instrument were examined and provided initial evidence of the reliability and validity of OCS.

Findings

The model fit indices confirm the three‐dimensional factor structure of organizational career systems. The three dimensions pertain to labor market orientation, employee advancement orientation and employee lateral movement.

Originality/value

In proposing this conceptual model, the authors draw insights from a number of distinct literature streams. The further development of an instrument to evaluate perceptions of career systems should encourage researchers and practitioners to use the instrument for empirical and diagnostic purposes.

Abstract

Purpose

E-training changed the employee experience with the help of virtual and online tools. This study aims to analyse the perceived impact of e-training on trainee experience and trainees’ self-assessment.

Design/methodology/approach

Data was gathered using a structured questionnaire from 853 employees of 30 Hydropower stations in North India. The partial least squares-structural equation modelling is used to test the relationships between study variables.

Findings

The result shows infrastructure and organisational support as the leading dimension, followed by trainer abilities and content/material/design to impact the perceived usefulness of e-training. The perceived trainee experience significantly impacts the e-training outcome as trainees’ perceived significant positive self-assessment.

Practical implications

Employees in select organisations indicate acceptance of the e-training. Hence, this study supports the applications of modern and emerging e-training tools as artefacts to support the learning and development of employees in select organisations.

Originality/value

This study explored the relationship between synchronous e-training and employee experience in the select power sector organisations previously dominated by traditional training tools.
