The high-pressuring working environment subsequently affects their satisfaction towards their job and eventually influences their decision to stay. Besides, coworker support has been associated with the enhancement of one’s work-life outcomes. This study is conducted to investigate the moderating role of coworker support in the relationship between job satisfaction and turnover intent among nurses. A sample of 200 nurses working at several health institutions around Labuan FT was involved in this quantitative study. Results from data collected were analysed using Smart-PLS. The findings show that among nurses, coworker support can help to mitigate the relationship between job satisfaction and intention to leave the profession. According to the study results, improved working conditions for nurses and a focus on their psychological well-being might assist in lowering the retention rate to cope with the lack of nursing professionals.</p> Al Gaffrie Mil Kusin, Dewi Tajuddin, Sylvia Nabila Azwa Ambad Copyright (c) 2021 Journal of Management Info Sun, 15 Aug 2021 09:01:05 -0400 The impact of leader’s humor styles on creativity and work engagement of call center employees in Jakarta <p>This study aimed to analyze the impact of a leader's humor style dimensions: affiliate humor style, self-enhancing humor styles, aggressive humor styles, and self-defeating humor style on creativity and work engagement.

Natural crisis affects businesses and people worldwide with varying effects. It is notable that leadership styles and other factors can lead a business either to success or failure based on their proactivity. To explore the area of leadership studies in times of natural crises, a systematic literature review was undertaken. The review of studies from past fifteen years revealed that there were a lot of studies on the topic of leadership. Out of those, only 34 articles published from 2005 to 2020 were found relevant to the topic under study. These were presented in the form of a systematic literature review of “Leadership in Times of Natural Crises”. The systematic literature review was done using PRISMA framework which is the most widely known method of conducting review. The main link between these articles, although each focusing on different areas of research, was the relationship between leadership styles and impact on organizational management during natural crises. The review of the 34 articles from Scopus database explored different leadership styles and theories with their impact on organizations. The resources grew substantially in relation to COVID-19 in 2020, which also highlights the importance of this topic as there were limited resources available in the last twenty years when exploring papers that studied the impact of leadership impact during SARS outbreak in 2003. The finding of this article highlights the gap in research on leadership studies, and particularly in relation to pandemics, or for a broader term, natural crises.</p> Qasim Zafar Chuadhry Zafar, Sobia Irum, Maryam khalid, Abbadah Adnan Almulla, Abdalrahaman Nassir Almajid, Samah Ali Copyright (c) 2021 Journal of Management Info Sun, 15 Aug 2021 09:02:29 -0400 Impact of motivation and job satisfaction on turnover: A case study of food additives producer Company <p>In the current working environment, employee turnover focused as the main issue found in almost many organizations. Employees are the key to a company's productions and services. When employees are taken good care of by focusing on their needs, they will bring up the company’s performance. However, the increasing percentage of employee turnover makes the company pay more attention to motivation and job satisfaction. Thus, an organization strongly thinks that employee motivation and job satisfaction should reduce the employee turnover rate. This action research was conducted to analyze the current factors influencing motivation and job satisfaction that brings to turnover intention. This research also suggests professional leadership training as a planned intervention towards this company. This research was focused on estimating the outcome of the planned intervention to reduce employee turnover intention in the Company. This action research study was conducted using two frameworks which are Social Exchange Theory and Theory Planned Behaviors. The methodology used in this research was a mixed-method approach by taking two interviews with managers (Qualitative approach), while a questionnaire survey (Quantitative Approach) was conducted with 35 respondents. Thematic Analysis and Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) were utilized to analyze the data. Before the intervention, motivation and job satisfaction among employees were evaluated as low, and turnover intention was high based on an interview with managers and pre-survey results. The positive effects of the professional leadership training as intervention organized in the Company initiated are notable in thematic analysis and post-training survey results retrieved from employees. Based on the research, professional leadership training will be recommended for future researchers.</p> Asweni Krishnan, Sanil S Hishan Copyright (c) 2021 Journal of Management Info Tue, 31 Aug 2021 10:18:24 -0400
