Research: Foreign Direct Investment In South Africa: A Comparative Analysis Of Successful Country Level Programs For The Manufacturing Sector

Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) is widely regarded as one of the engines for social economic growth, employment, skills and technology transfers. More specifically, Mallampally & Sauvent (1999) highlight that FDI can make a considerable contribution to the economic progress of developing countries. A large number of developing countries lack significant domestic savings in order to achieve their internal investment goals, therefore FDI appears to provide a means for this requirement.

Research: Reflecting on the Cone (2010) Corporate Citizenship Spectrum as a Framework for Research Relating to Corporate Partnerships in Higher Education

Participation by corporations in supporting higher education remains highly visible and controversial for academicians and practitioners. While best practices can be found, many gray areas exist in the actions and motivations for corporate citizenship behavior in relation to higher education. This paper reflects on the usefulness of the Cone (2010) corporate citizenship spectrum used in Clevenger’s (2014) organizational analysis case study, which examines corporate citizenship through the inter-organizational relationships between a public U.S. doctoral research university and six of its corporate partners.

TextBook: Applications of Neuroscience to Improve Wellbeing in Organizational Life

The application of neuroscience toward well-being in organizational life has been an emerging field of research over the last few decades and Branchi and Alleva (2006) proposes that these protocols are developing as a specific domain within the fields of management science, organizational behavior, human resource management, and related areas. According to Bandura (1991) the key focus should be understanding the application of brain-based well-being systems and offering tools for healthy behavior change within the organizational context. Lupien SJ, Maheu F, Tu M, et al. (2007) suggests that understanding how to effectively apply the findings from neuroscience may lead to positive neurophysiological and psycho-social health benefits. To enhance health and well-being in organizations, learning from neuro-science should be applied practically (Parsons, 2019) as this approach has shown to sustain health and improve well-being at work.
