Anjali S. D. Sivakumar S. Hemalatha P. Selvaraju <p>As an agricultural country, seed sector is one among the important segments in India. In this competitive world, hiring and retaining talent is tough. Attracting the key talent to the right position can be pretty much impossible without solid employer brand. At present, turnover intention of employees is the universal problem that haunts the organization. The present study investigated the relationship between dimensions of employer branding (social value, interest value, application value, economic value and development value) and turnover intention of employees working in Tamil Nadu seed companies.</p> <p>According to the survey conducted by Indian Seed Market for the year 2019, five seed companies were selected based on the respondent’s willingness to participate in the study. The participants were contacted through online. Google forms were sent to 390 respondents via mail and 150 usable responses were collected. Survey was conducted from March 2020 to June 2020. Ordinal logistic regression analysis was done to assess the relationship between employer branding and turnover intention.</p> <p>The results showed that employer branding dimensions such as social value, interest value, development value was significantly negative to turnover intention, whereas application value and economic value showed non-significant relation. Hence, the study revealed that increase in employer branding resulted in lower turnover intention. Lower turnover rate further lead to reduction in hiring and training cost for new employees and thereby would increase organization’s profitability.</p> 2020-11-10T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Socio-Ecological Foundation of Marketable Surplus Generation in Agriculture: The Complexity and Compliances 2020-11-25T10:55:22+00:00 Debraj Roy S. K. Achaya Arindam Ghosh Debashis Mazumder Swagata Ghoshal Monirul Haque Amitava Biswas <p>The study was conducted on Rice and Poultry entrepreneurs in Memari-1 block, Purba Barddhaman district of West Bengal, India. This has been conducted to assess their socio-personal, agro-economical and techno-managerial skills. Several entrepreneurial aspects are considered in this study to portrait a well discernible picture of their entrepreneurship. The acquired data and other information was critically examined with several statistical tools like range, mean, standard deviation, variance, correlation coefficient, stepwise regression analysis, multiple regression analysis, factor analysis and cluster analysis. Total 18 variables were considered for the study in which 15 of them are independent variables and 3 of them dependent variables. Correlation coefficient is significant for the independent variables in case of one dependent variable i.e. produce marketed (y<sub>3</sub>). After performing Stepwise Regression analysis several satisfactory conclusions were drawn for the study which well described the current neo agricultural scenario in rural Bengal. It has been recorded that when the economic land is more, then the marketed surplus becomes lower as because small holdings entrepreneurs concentrate more in the production phase. Marketed surplus has a positive relationship with the Education level. It has been recorded that Marketed surplus has a positive relationship with electricity consumption also. Having a higher marketed surplus indicate more advancement and betterment in terms of entrepreneurial management and thus fuel use efficiency becomes more prominent and fuel consumption is reduced. It has been recorded that when the innovation proneness and market interaction is higher for the respondents, the marketed surplus is also higher.</p> 2020-11-10T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## An Empirical Evaluation of the Bilateral Non-oil Export Trade Balance between Nigeria and Egypt: A Test of Marshall-Lerner Condition 2020-11-25T10:54:58+00:00 Obasanmi, Jude Omokugbo O. J. Imahe <p>Bilateral trade is the exchange of goods between two nations promoting trade and investment. The two countries will reduce or eliminate tariffs, import quotas, export restraints, and other trade barriers to encourage trade and investment. The Marshall-Lerner (M-L) condition which is at the heart of the elasticities approach to the balance of Trade. The condition seeks to answer what happens to the current-account balance of a country when there is a devaluation of the currency. In this study, an empirical examination of the validation&nbsp; of M-L Condition was examined in the Bilateral Non-Oil Export Trade Balance between Nigeria and Egypt for the period 1980 to 2018. The distributed lag (DL) mechanism was&nbsp; used to estimate the short as well as the long run parameters. The results of the findings validated the M-L Condition in the trade relations with Egypt in the short and long run and that the M-L Condition is supported by data. The study amongst others recommended that for Nigeria to implement any devaluation policy, Nigeria must first and foremost ensure a substantial increase in her non-oil exports as against imports. This is the only way the benefits can be maximized&nbsp; &nbsp;for the country.</p> 2020-11-13T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Exchange Rate Pass-through and Its Impacts on the Nigeria Economy 2020-11-26T10:11:34+00:00 Obasanmi, Jude Omokugbo <p>Exchange Rate Pass-Through is an approximation of international macroeconomic transmission of prices and thus has implications for the timing of economic policy interventions. Hence, the degree and speed of pass-through is important for formulating policy responses to economic shocks. In this study, the researcher evaluated some channels and impacts of exchanges rate pass-through on the Nigerian economy during the period spanning from 1981 to 2018. Unit root and co-integration tests, as well as the error regression analysis on the time series data for the period 1981-2018 were carried out. The empirical outcomes indicated that Exchange rate changes pass-through interest rate and inflation rate channels on both short and long run and thus significantly affected interest rates and prices of goods and service in Nigeria during the study period. These outcomes yielded key policy insights and outlook which made the researcher to recommend amongst others that Government should ensure that the interest rates are brought to a level that will enable producers access investible funds. When there is high level of funds for production, exports would likely increase ceteris paribus, there by an increase in the foreign exchange earnings for the country and an appreciation of the naira<em>.</em></p> 2020-11-23T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## The Impact of Rewards on Employee Performance: A Study of Commercial Banks in Noakhali Region 2020-11-25T10:54:31+00:00 Fatema Akter Jeni Prantika Mutsuddi Shaily Das .

The experimental part of the project was conducted using a quantitative research method. The size of the sample was 80. Data was collected with the help of questionnaires issued to the respondents working as ban bankers. The questionnaire consists of nine variables that are being used as rewards for employees.

The result shows that the mean for salary evaluation, bonus, benefit, promotion, recognition, career, responsibility learning opportunity from a low 2.82 to a high of 4.02. The responses of salary evaluation, benefit, promotion, career advancement show that employees consider this factor slightly important than factors as mean value is greater than 3.5. The standard deviation of promotion and responsibility shows that these variables have extensive responses than their mean as value indicates 0.98 and 0.94 respectively. The results of the study revealed how employees responded to current reward systems. The results conclude that reward systems have a significant effect on employees' attitudes toward work.
