The peer-reviewed online quarterly “Graziadio Business Report” has published a new edition of commentary and analysis for business, government, and non-profit managers on its website at http://gbr.pepperdine.edu . A publication of the Graziadio School of Business and Management at Pepperdine University, now in its tenth year, the e-journal translates the latest academic research and topical debates in accounting, finance, ethics, marketing, and management into applications the practitioner can use to advance his or her professional career and business.
“Employers’ Legal Obligations to Employees in the Military” by Jeffrey Schieberl, JD, MBA, and Charles P. Leo, Ph.D., M.B.A., discusses the Uniformed Services Employment and Re-Employment Rights Act and other laws impacting employers with returning citizen soldiers.
“Will the Sub-Prime Meltdown Burst the Housing Bubble?” by Peggy J. Crawford, Ph.D., and Terry Young, Ph.D., examines the prevalent use of creative mortgage instruments to allow households who would not qualify for fixed-rate mortgages to enter the market. Now that the sub-prime mortgage market has begun to implode, the authors discuss how the end of the housing boom may be good news for the overall economy.
“Employee Incentives,” by Robert Francisco, M.B.A., and Michael Kinsman, Ph.D., offers a powerful way of providing employees financial benefits by adopting a "welfare benefit plan."
In part two of “Strategic Leadership,” by Robert M. Fulmer, Ph.D., and Jared L. Bleak, Ed.D., the authors share best practices gleaned from a recent study of five benchmark organizations: Caterpillar, Cisco Systems, PepsiCo, PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) and Washington Group International.
Companies are seeking new ways to draw investors' attention to value creation, stressing longer-term goals and non-financial measures. In “To Tell or Not to Tell,” authors Anthony J. Culpepper, Ed.D., and J. Goosby Smith, Ph.D., explore the relationship between cultural values and corporations' disclosure of non-financial metrics.
Attitude has become a defining factor in the workplace because it may be at the root of most business decisions. Ray M. Valadez, Ed.D., in the article “Developing a Barometer for Workplace Attitude” introduces an approach to measuring workplace attitude that does not rely on the practitioner's subjective intuition or perceptions.
“Assertive Performance Feedback,” by Charles D. Kerns, Ph.D., provides guidance for improving performance by offering a clear and concrete tool for effective performance feedback.
The “Graziadio Business Report” accepts articles from academics, business practitioners, and others knowledgeable in business topics. Submissions are reviewed by an editorial board of both academic and business practitioners in a double-blind process.
The journal will be listed in the 11th edition of “Cabell’s Directory of Publishing Opportunities in Management.” For more information, please visit: http://gbr.pepperdine.edu .
