Findings also revealed that perceived organizational support significantly and fully mediates the relationship between employee rewards, recognition, and job stress and employee performance. So this study puts light on crucial factors that lead to better employee performance.  Implications - Employee rewards and recognition play an important role in overall employee performance. If the companies will not take it seriously, then it might lead to negative consequences. On the other hand, job stress also plays a vital role in employee performance.

Abstract

Objective – An empirical investigation to assess the impact of the bank-affiliated business group on firm’s capital structure decisions. Design/methodology/approach – A sample of 146 group affiliated firms and subsamples for bank and non-bank affiliated firms was analyzed with random-effect panel regression model to determine the relationship of the bank-affiliated business group on firm’s capital structure determinants of listed firms in Pakistan using data for 2006-2011. Findings – We have found that bank-affiliated firms financing decisions are significantly different from that of non-bank affiliated firms with a common factor of the internal capital market.  Bank-affiliated firm capital structure determinants of growth, asset tangibility, non-debt tax shield and operating risk show significantly different association with choice of leverage compared to non-bank affiliated firms. Policy implications – Our results show that group affiliated firms particularly bank-affiliated firms are the reason for market imperfections and have successfully eliminated the market distortions keeping others at a disadvantage.  Hence, Policymakers are suggested to improve the regulatory system and its implementation. Originality/value – According to best of our knowledge, this is the first study to extend the literature of firm financing decisions in relation to bank-group affiliation in Pakistan.

Abstract

The study aimed to identify the determinants of the technical efficiency of Smallholder Tea Farmers (STFs) under UTZ certification system in Sri Lanka by employing stochastic production frontier using a sample survey of 75 STFs supported by the UTZ programme conducted between January and March in 2016. The results showed that a small number of STFs (11.8 percent) were over 90 percent efficient and the level of efficiency was found to be negatively related to coefficients of UTZ certified STFs and positively related to number of years with the same plants. The results further showed the labor and fertilizer were the significant factors that determine the tea production of STFs.
