Abstract: The paper examines thefit between business strategy/ies and HRM and how it would affect organizational performance in three country clusters: European and North and South American. The link between business strategy and HRM, on the one hand, and HRM and company performance, on the other, are widely debated in prior HRM literature. Building on data gathered in the fourth IMS Survey, the connections are studied in the three clusters. The results indicate that product strategy and HRM are the best predictors of performance with vast differences between performance indicators and country clusters.

Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: This paper explores how various Scottish military personnel serving in the East India Company’s armies experienced being “British” during the Company period of colonial rule in India. For a quarter-century at least, scholars have vigorously debated how English, Scottish, Welsh, and Irish became integrated (or not) into the composite identity of “Britishness” over the course of the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. Much of this discussion has centered on Europe; despite the fact that both the British state and the British Empire were mutually constitutive of each other during this period, the empire has largely been ignored in this scholarly debate. Yet, as this paper argues, it is in colonial “contact zones” (Mary Louise Pratt) such as Company India that the tensions of the British national/imperial-building projects can be most fruitfully analyzed. The Company was one of the few truly pan-British institutions during this period, employing personnel from all four nations but disproportionately from Scotland (and Ireland). Moreover, it is through analyzing personal experience – through closely reading diaries, letters, and other personal papers – rather than discourse, that the personal dilemmas of identity-formation during this period can be most successfully explored. Drawing upon the rich collections of personal papers held at the British Library and the National Library of Scotland, this paper contends that Scottish military officers and soldiers, rather than automatically embracing an “imperial British” identity in the empire, experienced and embraced multiple overlapping identities (imperial Britishness but also Scottishness, Highlander, Lowlander, Glaswegian, etc.) during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries.

Abstract: Outsourcing the Company Store: Predatory Lending in Washington State
Abstract: This paper investigates whether predatory lending businesses, in particular payday lenders, pawn shops, and rent-to-own businesses, are more likely to be located in poor and minority communities in Washington State. The research presented here differs from previous research in important ways. First, the data is presented at the census tract level, thereby allowing a more fine-grained accounting of the surrounding community. Second, rather than focusing upon one type of predatory lender, this research accounts for multiple types of lenders simultaneously. Third, the empirical results included here utilize Geographic Information Systems (GIS) allowing a spatial accounting of these businesses and the communities within which they are situated.
The results presented here suggest that predatory lenders target poor and minority communities. In fact, we propose that this phenomenon is a modern day version of the old company store that once appeared in towns across the United States. The rise of predatory lending in modern-day inner cities is simply another form of indentured servitude for today’s working poor. The culprit is no longer the company store that owns the town, but rather they are independent capitalist business entities that prey upon individuals unable to make ends meet from paycheck to paycheck. The results presented here indicate that these businesses are disproportionately located in poor and minority communities in Washington State.

"Does Organizational Information in Addition to Recruitment or Financial Information Influence Potential Applicants' and Investors' Reactions Toward a Company?" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, Sheraton New York, New York City, NY, Online <PDF>. 2019-04-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p14072_index.html>

Abstract: Previous research has studied the influence of different types of organizational information on stakeholders’ reactions toward a company. However, it did not explicitly identify whether organizational information (as opposed to only product information, recruitment information or financial information) matters to stakeholders in the first place.
To fill this void, this study examines whether the addition of organizational information to recruitment or financial information enhances potential applicants’ or investors’ evaluation of a company and their intentions toward the company.
An experiment was conducted in which respondents were exposed to one of four types of corporate brochures of a fictitious company. The four types of brochures consisted of two variants of recruitment brochures (both variants including recruitment-related information such as the description of a management trainee program, salary, working conditions etc.) and two variants of financial brochures (both variants including information on financial results, share performance, dividend policy etc.). For both type of brochures, one variant included additional organizational information (such as the firm’s history, mission, market opportunities, social responsibility etc.) and one did not include additional organizational information.
The results demonstrate that 1) additional organizational information in a recruitment brochure positively influences potential applicants’ overall evaluation of a firm and, 2) this positive evaluation in turn influences their intention to apply for a job at the firm. Moreover, 3) additional organizational information in a financial brochure positively influences potential investors’ overall evaluation of a firm; and 4) this positive evaluation in turn influences their intention to buy shares from the firm.
