Social exchange theory was used to establish the theoretical framework of this study. The study adopted descriptive survey research design to establish the relationship between professional career development, teamwork and job satisfaction. Structured questionnaire was distributed to 428 respondents in six selected private universities in Nigeria. The reliability of the measuring instrument was tested using Cronbach Alpha. Hypothesis one was tested using correlation analysis and regression analysis were employed for testing of hypotheses two, three and four. The result of the analysis showed that there is a statistical influence between the three constructs professional career development, teamwork and job satisfaction of private university lecturers in Nigeria. The research concludes that professional career development and teamwork exert different levels of influence on private university lecturers’ job satisfaction and that teamwork exerts greater level of influence on lecturers’ job satisfaction. Hence it was suggested that management of private universities should promote the establishment of multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary research teams and centres in order to blend the experience of academics. Also, private universities should make annual plans to sponsor or subsidize conferences, seminars and workshop expenses of lecturers in order to encourage frequent participation in academic events so as to sustain the lecturer’s satisfaction and commitment on the job.</em></p> Adani Nnenne Ifechi Ifeanyi E.

In the state of Rivers, there were a total of 139 managers working for four different telecommunications companies: MTN, 9Mobile, Airtel, and Globacom. The researchers used a straightforward random selection method to choose 103 participants for their investigation. The delivery of a structured questionnaire was used to obtain the primary data for this study. Using Spearman's Rank Order Correlation Coefficient and the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) version 22.0, we examined whether or not the provided hypotheses were supported by the data. According to the findings of the research, the two aspects of entrepreneurial orientation that were chosen (innovativeness and proactiveness) have a substantial connection to an organization's level of competitiveness (quality and market share). According to the findings of the study, the management of telecommunications companies should have an innovative plan to fund innovative ideas, experimentation, and creative processes; they should also introduce new products and services; and they should invest significantly in research and development. Additionally, the management of companies that deal in telecommunications have to take the initiative in the launch of new goods and services whenever possible. When it comes to the current state of the telecommunications industry, they should be recognized as a reputable brand. They should also react more quickly than their rivals do to educational and research opportunities.</em></p> Macaulay Enyindah Wegwu Sunny Joshua Princewill Copyright (c) 2022 Journal La Bisecoman 2022-06-21 2022-06-21 3 3 96 106 10.37899/journallabisecoman.v3i3.645 Management Practices and Productivity Level of Cebu City and Ozamiz City Eateries during COVID-19 Pandemic <p><em>The COVID-19 pandemic has made drastic changes in every country’s economy, affecting several businesses particularly in the restaurant industry and resulting in different obstacles that threaten the overall business productivity. Thus, the study is a quantitative non-experimental that aimed to determine if there is a significant relationship between the management practices and productivity among the 50 respondents from the randomly selected 10 eateries in Cebu City, Philippines through linear correlation analysis. Data were gathered online using an adapted and reliable questionnaire. Findings revealed that the management practices of the eateries have a very high average weighted mean and SD (x̄=3.34 SD=0.72). Meanwhile, the level of impact of the eateries’ overall productivity garnered a very high average weighted mean (x̄=3.50 SD=0.57). Therefore, the levels of management practices and the productivity of the eateries during the COVID-19 pandemic have significant relationship with a moderate positive correlation of 0.58 (r = 0.5846, = 0.00001, p &lt; 0.05). This implies the great need for businesses to establish appropriate management practices and for employees to systematically apply these practices for the betterment of both the productivity of the employees and the business as a whole. Additionally, with the problems of operations, regulations imposed by the government, and adjustments to competitors being faced, respondents suggested fostering open communication and utilizing online platforms, and promotions for the improvement of management practices and productivity.</em></p> Yvette Villarta Flordeliza Gagani Mary Angela Dinulos Liz Alexandra Tan Adair Shemie Margaret Yosores Allyza Punsalan Andre Murillo Copyright (c) 2022 Journal La Bisecoman 2022-06-21 2022-06-21 3 3 107 117 10.37899/journallabisecoman.v3i3.644 Souvenir Purchase Motivations and Product Attribute Preferences among Arts and Design Students amidst Covid-19 <p><em>Despite the onslaught of COVID-19, people still travel and tourism can only thrive further upon its end. Souvenir shopping has long been integral to the tourism business and one’s travel experience. This quantitative non-experimental descriptive correlational study aimed to determine the relationship between souvenir purchase motivations and product attribute preferences among the randomly selected 50 Grade 12 Arts and Design students in the University of San Carlos South Campus for the school year 2021-2022. Two standardized and reliable Likert-type survey tools were used to collect data. Results revealed that students acquire souvenirs for a variety of reasons before making their decision. Students also valued the portability, aesthetic value, and authenticity of an item when looking for a souvenir. Researchers found out that there is a high positive correlation between souvenir purchase motivations and product attribute preferences and the relationship between the two variables is found to be significant, r (48) = 0.547, p &lt; 0.05. This means that students who go on trips have distinct motivations and it affects their decision-making towards purchasing souvenir items. This study recommends that the variables be tested in more settings post-pandemic, as travel restrictions ease worldwide.</em></p> Nadine Kiandra B. Baronia Julia S. Daño Athia Bless R.

The investigation will take place over the course of a period of five calendar years, commencing in 2017 and concluding in 2021. The researcher made use of a variety of accounting techniques, such as profitability ratios, as well as statistical methods, such as one-way analysis of variance; the findings are discussed further down in this section.</em></p> Anil Kalubhai Vanvi Copyright (c) 2022 Journal La Bisecoman 2022-09-02 2022-09-02 3 3 129 132 10.37899/journallabisecoman.v3i3.677
