This research looks at the marketing and operations practises of rural banks in India's When used
in this context, "marketing strategy" refers to any set of actions taken with the intention of
increasing demand for a certain product or service. In light of the increased competitiveness in
the banking industry, the use of this term has become widespread. Banks, including rural banks,
need to employ effective marketing strategies in their operations to please clients in a first-class
way in today's fiercely competitive marketplace and rapidly evolving client desires and
requirements within the business landscape. Consumers' shifting tastes and preferences in the
modern economy have driven banks both small and large to adapt in order to stay competitive
and retain their clientele. Inevitably, this will raise the bar for service across the sector, which in
turn will stimulate growth in the economy. To stay ahead of the competition, banks need to
develop and implement strategies that provide them a distinct advantage. Providing excellent
customer service is a crucial component in maintaining a competitive edge. The study's
overarching purpose was to learn more about the methods Rural Bank uses in its marketing
efforts to win new clients and keep existing ones happy. The information used for the study
comes from both primary and secondary sources related to rural banking.

Journal of Contemporary Issues in Business and Government, 2022, Volume 28, Issue 1, Pages 402-426

Quite expansive works have been undertaken to gauge incessant spate of violence at workplace
particularly as it relates to general job performance; not much have been done in the case of nonacademic
staff of Nigerian Universities. Furthermore, while work-related violence has been
thought to associate with burnout and negative job behavior, there have been growing concerns
among organizations to be preoccupied with economic gains rather than the long-term human
impacts of their decisions. The purpose of the study is to explore how workplace violence
(WKPLV) through occupational stress (OCPST) affects staff performance (STAFP) of nonacademic
employees of federal universities in Nigeria. The population of the study totaled
13873, comprises 8045 (senior) and 5828 (junior) non-academic staff of federal universities.
Research approach involved Quasi-Experimental Design and sample size of 389 randomly
determined; Multiple Regression and Structural Equation Modeling deployed as analytical tools;
Reliability was affirmed at: WKPLV (0.975); STAFP (0.987); and OCPST (0.985). The
regression result, juxtaposed by sample response showed evident of significant but negative
relationship between WKPLV and STAFP. There are strong statistical underpinnings that
occupational stress mediates the effects of WKPLV on performance.. We propose that
management of universities in act proactively by bracing up plans to investigate factors that
precipitate violence at work and checkmating them so as to minimize their stress-induced effects
on performance. Research implications, study originality and research limitations are discussed.

The main objective of the current research is to assess the mediating role of organisational cultural between entrepreneurial orientation, structural factor and performance of public universities. The contribution of universities in the development of any country is an undeniable fact. The previous studies emphasised on such aspects, as structural factors that affect universities performance but the role of cultural factors have been ignored. The current study explores cultural factors as mediating variable between structural factors, entrepreneurial factors and performance of public universities. The current research applied a combination of qualitative and quantitative methods. We developed, through an in-depth desktop research, a questionnaire that was distributed by mailed/postal survey to the randomly selected 415 respondents working in Pakistani public universities. The collected data was analysed using structural equation modelling (SEM) with the help of SmartPLS 3.2.7, a widely used data analytical tool. Out study finds that cultural factors significantly mediate the relationship between structural factors, entrepreneurial factors and performance of public universities. The university management at different level is expected to enhance competencies of conducting high quality teaching, research and contribution to wider society through utilisation of scarce resources and creating a congenial cultural environment to maximize outcome from the available strength and opportunities and overcome the weakness and challenges. The findings and recommendations are expected to add value to the current body of literature in the higher education and particular value addition will be for the Pakistani universities.

Evolving in a globalized economy and facing increasing pressure from their business partners, Tunisian SMEs are facing new challenges in managing their performance. To meet these challenges, Tunisian SMEs must adopt management tools that allow them to maintain the excellence they need, i.e., tools that measure their performance in a multidimensional, efficient and effective manner.
However, this need to measure and manage performance facesan absence of tools adapted to this type of companies that take into account both their limited resources and their expertise to be able to use them effectively.
 Furthermore, in recent years the evolution of management control systems has resulted in the questioning of the relevance of financial measures as representative of business success and the diffusion of performance measurement systems designed to take into account different complementary strategic perspectives.
Developed for large firms, the approaches advocated would be incompatible with the practice of performance measurement in small firms (Hudson, Smart and Bourne, 2001). The paucity of empirical research on performance measurement systems in SMEs has been highlighted by many studies. 
Lack of knowledge about performance measurement systems developed in SMEs invites the study of the features of these systems in this type of businesses. This study also contributes to documenting the specific problem of performance measurement systems in SMEs. 
Using the results of an empirical study based on a quantitative survey of 57 Tunisian companies, this paper analyzes the features of performance measurement systems implemented in small and medium-sized enterprises and shows the diversity of practices of SMEs. This study provides Tunisian SMEs managers and advisors with an empirical framework for the design, improvement and evaluation of performance measurement systems.

Current study utilizes modeling of structural equation to investigate a theoretical social networking prototype that applies to an amount of 34,896 schooling students in India. The most separate frameworks of the prototype concern the children's behavior about social networking, the factors for use of social networking sites, the social media practices and the subjects included.The based systems include perceived teaching success and social effects of social media. The analysis explains the interactions between the various systems. There is also research into the influence of certain factors, such as parental know-how. Our research has enhanced the understanding of the social media paradigm. The findings upkeep the hypothesis that expected efficiency, social communications and social media influence are interrelated. Evidences of an opposite model means that the topic of the construction of social media, its history and future consultation quenches must be closely studied.

Organisational cynicism is one of the understudied topics, which is being overlooked in
organisations for a long period of time. This has three dimensions: cognitive-lack of sincerity,
honesty in organisation; Affective: emotional and sentimental responses towards the
workplace; and Behavioural: showing negative attitude within workplace. Moreover, it
results in decreased motivation, interpersonal conflicts, absenteeism, low organisational
commitment, and low efficiency, dissatisfaction in work, unethical behaviour and reluctance
in organisational citizenship behaviour. The Antecedents and consequences of organisational
cynicism can be taken into account while calculating the turnover of the employees,
efficiency and overall productivity of the organisation.

The research was conducted to examine the performance of Sri Lanka's tourism industry. Secondary data was obtained from the annual reports of the Sri Lanka Tourism Development Authority. The inefficiency in tourist arrival, total annual receipts and per day receipt from a tourist were estimated using Stochastic Frontier Analysis (SFA) between the periods from 1970 to 2019. And the factors influencing on the above tree inefficiencies were estimated combined with Cobb–Douglas frontier function under the assumption of half-normal distribution. The study found that the efficiencies were 86.2 %, 78.4 %, and 89.6 % respectively in tourist arrival, tourist receipts and per day receipts. The productivity of both the number of tourist arrivals and the overall reception of tourists was significantly (p<0.05) increased by the number of indirect jobs involved in tourism activities and the number of beds available for accommodation. Tourist arrival inefficiency could be substantially (p<0.05) improved by embarkation tax. Similarly, the number of international conferences held in BMICH significantly (p<0.05) had a negative impacted on the inefficiency of Sri Lanka's tourist arrival and tourism receipts. The present study revealed that growing investment in conference halls will create an opportunity to start more international conferences and symposiums to increase the efficiency of the tourism industry in Sri Lanka instead of investing more in rooms and direct recruitment to the tourism sector.

A competitive advantage (CA) would no longer be the company's physical properties but the people's non-physical resources. This study designed to mediate the impact of HRM Strategic Practices on CA on the transcendent corporate performance and actual business performance. Erbil was in Kurdistan, Iraq, from four cities. Questionnaires sent to the seven companies selected. The path control strategy for analysis used this research to model the collected data on partly small and structural equations (PLS-SEM). The evaluation results from the Construct show that the measurements of the SHRMP, IFP, TFP, and CA range from 0.60-0.92. There is still a variable loading value of 0.50 to 0.60, although some authors propose loads of factor greater than 0.70. We have maintained and accepted the limitations given the preceding for further analysis. For SHRMP, IFP, TFP and CA, the average of the latent variables were 0.56, 0.51, 0.58 and 0.51, respectively. The obtained AVE values were coherent. Our results demonstrate that each structure is more comprehensive than its square correlations with the diagonal and adventurous Square Roots AVE. In this research, HRM strategy and competitive advantages, particularly in Iraq, are linked to the company's metaphysical and factual mediator role. The study results offer innovative views. This research has also determined the importance of corporate (public/private) types. Our results show that the intangible performance of the employees and tangible results play a crucial role in securing competitive, sustainable benefits for firms in Iraq.

Large law firms show affinity towards students who have participated in moot court. Because these understudies already spent many hours perfecting the analytical, research, and writing aptitudes that practicing attorneys must have. As a result moot court have gained high importance in the legal front but In the recent times presentation and arguments of students (mooters) in moot court competition vary from competition to competition, though academic pressures and preparation is put forth as a reason, it is apprehended that the responsiveness of judges may also be a reason for the same. Judges in moot courts occupy important role, the judges pave way for students to learn court manners and patience, in the moot court presentation. The recent behavior of students towards moot court presentation and participation gives way to apprehend that the judge’s responsiveness may be a reason for differential skillful and intellect presentation in competitions. Therefore this research aims at the influence of differential responsiveness of judges in the performance of participants. by the virtue of non probability convenience sampling and using chi square tests it could be found out that There is no relationship between student opinion on differential responsiveness of judges and year of study, There is no relationship between student opinion on Influence of judges responsiveness in participant presentation and year of study. The study put forth that the performance of students in moot court competitions is influenced by differential responsiveness of judges. Therefore the study recommends that only qualified experts of the subject matter must be preferred as judges in the moot court competitions.

The motivation of employees should be seen as a force that influences the leaders to attain specific goals and objectives of the organisation. Fundamental reason for this study is to find out what sort of elements impact employee Motivation. The samples are collected from 75 employees working in the retail industry (household appliances) through a self-managed survey. Regression analysis is used to identify the influence of employee motivation on employee performance, using four variables: employee inspiration, employee execution, helping variables, and adequacy. The consequences of this review indicate that there is a necessary and encouraging relation between the motivation of employees and the performance of employees. In addition, it is reasoned that intrinsic rewards have a large amount of huge positive relationships with representative execution and worker inspiration.
