Moreover, it focuses on the various factors that influence female employee job satisfaction of microfinance institutions. The study utilised quantitative research methods and use</em><em>d</em><em> Herzberg’s motivation-hygiene theory (19590. A total of 24 structured questionnaires with five dimensions have been given to 100 female respondents of selected microfinance institutions in Bangladesh. The findings reveal that some variables (performance-based salary increment, available opportunities for promotion, satisfaction on job environment, colleagues help during huge workload, opportunity to interact with other employees on a formal level, use of skill, experience &amp; qualification, recognition for good work, and learning opportunity) have significant impact on female employee satisfaction&nbsp; in the microfinance institutions. The limitation of the studied investment fund is that it invests in expanding and mature microfinance institutions (MFIs). So the results of this research can only be generalised to expanding and mature MFIs. This study aims at contributing for better female employees job satisfaction of the MFIs given that it has substantial implications on financial benefit, work environment, job security, decision making, training and resources of the MFIs.</em></p> 2020-02-29T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 International Journal of Entrepreneurial Research Influence of 4P Strategy on Organisation’s Performance: A Case on Bangladesh RMG Sector 2020-03-29T17:26:40+00:00 Rashed Al Karim Wardha Habiba <p><em>The right 4P strategy empowers organisations to pursue their marketing objectives in the target markets and therefore achieve the organisational objectives. Proper implementation of the right 4P strategy ensures provision of the right product, at the right price, in the right place thus, confirms that resources are efficiently and effectively utilized. This study aims to investigate the impact of 4P strategies on organisation performance in the garments industry of Bangladesh based on CEPZ (Chittagong Export Processing Zone). McCarthy’s (1964) 4 P’s (such as product, price, place, and promotion) are considered as the elements of 4Ps in this study. Data was collected through survey where a structured questionnaire, containing 25 closed-ended questions, was used. A total of 180 respondents were selected conveniently for this survey. The data was analysed using SPSS 24.0 version. From the findings of the study it was found that product, place, price and promotional strategies significantly and positively influenced the organisation's performance. The findings suggest that by focusing on 4P strategy, the organizations can make better performance than their competitors. Eventually, few recommendations were offered for the garment industry.&nbsp; </em></p> 2020-02-29T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 International Journal of Entrepreneurial Research Nexus between Energy Consumptions and CO2 Emissions in Selected Industrialized Countries 2020-03-28T12:53:49+00:00 Md. Hasanur Rahman Shapan Chandra Majumder <p>This study examines the nexus between energy consumptions and CO<sub>2 </sub>emissions in selected industrialized countries and selects the industrialized countries where three are industrialized and two are a newly industrial growing country out of five. The panel section implies the period from 1980 to 2014 for selected countries. The WDI is the main data source for the selected variables. This study conducts the FMOLS method, which is suggested by unit root and the Johansen co integrations test. The Granger causality also uses to estimate the causality in current variables. The Johansen Fisher co-integration test indicates the long-run association’s among the variable. The FMOLS technique estimates the marginal effect that industrialization and energy outlay is an authentic and significant influence on CO<sub>2</sub> emission. Panel Ganger causality also shows a reliable result to estimate the causal relation.</p> 2020-02-29T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 International Journal of Entrepreneurial Research
