This book attends to the processes of water policy formulation and implementation in Ireland and Ghana, offering important insights into the ways in which public administrations operate in a developed and a developing country setting. Tenets of sustainability require nations to develop capacities to enable them strike a balance between harnessing environmental resources to improve the quality of life of their citizens, and adopting measures to guarantee environmental protection. Following the sustainability path', this book seeks to illuminate understanding of the complexities involved in policy formulation and implementation of water policy in Ireland and Ghana. It concludes that policy formulation has not facilitated implementation of water policy in both countries, largely because endeavours in this light have been externally driven by such organisations as the European Union, the World Bank the and International Monetary Fund. As a way forward, the book suggests the effective implementation of water policy through robust coordination of economic, political and administrative governance mechanisms in line with the national contexts and local realities of the countries studied.
Women's greater entry into the work force is now a global phenomenon. Women's home responsibilities have a direct impact on their achievements at work. Career interruptions, plateauing, and turnover are costly and expensive both to women, organisations and families. This study focuses on work life balance experiences of Saudi women employees in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. This study highlights the work-life considerations of Saudi women in the context of their cultural and religious values. Islam does not prohibit women from entering paid employment whenever there is a need for it, particularly in positions, that suit her feminine nature. However, the Saudi culture emphasizes the importance of family, and the first priority for women is to be a wife and a mother while paid work is a secondary issue.
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) - the commitment of organizations to balance financial performance with contributions to the quality of life of their employees, the local community and society at large - is gaining worldwide value as a business tool and social effort. The review of literature suggests that many studies have been undertaken globally to understand CSR as a subject of management but there have been very few studies undertaken to understand the other dimension of CSR which is beneficiary (community) aspect of CSR, especially in India. Here, the authors make an attempt to understand the CSR concept from both the dimensions of CSR i.e. management and beneficiaries of CSR (community). The authors try to understand the issues covered by the management and their implementing strategies in order to meet community needs. Also, the authors try to study the requirements and satisfaction of the community in the area where the corporates implement CSR.This type of attempt is the first one in India to study the community awareness and ist knowledge about CSR as well as the organisations working in the community. The present study also tries to measure the impact of CSR activities undertaken by the organizations in a way to have the sustainable development at village level. In this context, the present study plays a significant role in the field of Research Methodology, the field of management as well as social science, especially from the social work perspective. To meet the study objectives, both primary and secondary data were used. The primary data was collected in Karnataka, India by selecting nine organisations, three of each from Govt., Private and Multinational companies, those were recognised as leaders in implementing CSR activities. To understand the impact of CSR on community, 450 community respondents were also interviewed with the help of structured questionnaire. Secondary data for the study was obtained from Karmayog. CSR Ratings of the 500 largest Indian companies and other similar studies, other available articles, books, companies' annual reports and related publications were reviewed in the study.
The study examined the predictive abilities of organisational culture and work-life balance on career adaptability and internet addiction among employees in three research institutes in Ibadan. Issues of career adaptability and internet addiction are relatively new in industrial/organisational psychology with little studies on Nigeria. The study concluded that work-life balance of employees and organisational culture are critical issues in employees' career adaptability and their level of internet addiction. Individual characteristics of gender, educational attainment, career level are important factors to consider in career adaptability, most especially career control. It is therefore important for organisations to pay serious attention to the prevailing culture at workplaces, especially leadership, professionalism, communication and innovation, as well as work-life issues in order to protect employees against internet addiction and help them achieve stability in building successful career.
