Diversity Scholarship and Impact on Performance: Research Synthesis and Future Directions for Theory Building

-- Roshni Das

While diversity has been generally accepted as a requisite or desirable feature in various group settings and activities, its relationship with outcomes such as performance excellence has been found to be at best tenuous. In fact, scholars have struggled to even define the construct comprehensively. Moreover, while empirical studies showing correlation-based causation abound, there is little in terms of integrated theoretical exposition. This paper explores, from the extant literature, the various conceptualizations of diversity, identifies moderating variables to establish its connection with performance and delineates the composition of performance outcomes, contingent upon the variations among the previous two categories of constructs. This exercise is meant to bring clarity with regard to the impact of diversity research and also has implications for theory building in this domain. Future research directions are also discussed.

Cyberloafing: The Di(sguised)gital Way of Loafing on the Job

-- Brinda Sampat and Pooja A Basu

Cyberloafing or cyberslacking is a term used when employees excessively surf the Internet during work hours for non-work related activities. With the indispensable use of the Internet at workplaces today, this has become an all-pervasive problem for contemporary organizations causing an alarming financial loss. Activities pertaining to cyberloafing include playing games online, online shopping, online gambling, and using social networking sites and adult websites, to name a few. Based on the available literature, this paper defines cyberloafing, the antecedents and consequences to cyberloafing and also the measures to curb it. The primary factors that lead to cyberloafing are lack of organizational justice, lack of job involvement, attitude towards the job, and job monotony, and personal factors such as stress, boredom and procrastination. The consequences of cyberloafing include not only better creativity, better job satisfaction and a better learning environment but also decline in productivity, loss of intellectual property, data thefts and loss in time. Measures to reduce cyberloafing comprise putting in place Internet monitoring systems, policies that restrict the access of certain sites, and use of firewalls whilst at work. Further areas of research should focus on psychological experiments and empirical analyses of end-user behavior to get deeper understanding about cyberloafing.

The Role of Work-Family Culture and Personality Traits in Organizational Citizenship Behavior (OCB) of First-Level Managerial Personnel

-- A P Singh, Vinod Kumar Gupta, Anand Prakash Dubey, and Anoop Kumar Singh

The paper explores the role of work-family culture and personality traits in Organizational Citizenship Behavior (OCB) among first-level managers. Data was collected from 117 managers of a public sector insurance agency. Results revealed that managerial support (dimension of work-family culture) was significantly positively correlated with courtesy and altruism (dimensions of OCB). Career consequences and organizational time demands (dimensions of work-family culture) were found to be significantly negatively correlated with civic virtue, courtesy, altruism (dimensions of OCB) and OCB (total), while career consequence was found to be significantly negatively correlated with conscientiousness but organizational time demand (dimension of work-family culture) was significantly positively correlated with conscientiousness (dimension of OCB). Conscientiousness (dimension of personality) was significantly positively correlated with OCB (total) and its various dimensions, while openness (dimension of personality) was significantly negatively correlated with conscientiousness, civic virtue and courtesy (dimensions of OCB). Results of simultaneous regression analysis confirmed that only conscientiousness was significantly positively associated with conscientiousness, sportsmanship, courtesy, altruism (dimensions of OCB) and OCB. Career consequence was significantly negatively associated with conscientiousness and civic virtue, while organizational time demand was significantly negatively associated with OCB. The findings of this study will help in enhancing the OCB.

Automated Teller Machines (ATMs): The Changing Face of Banking in India

Bank Management
Information and communication technology has changed the way in which banks provide services to its customers. These days the customers are able to perform their routine banking transactions without even entering the bank premises. ATM is one such development in recent years, which provides remote banking services all over the world, including India. This paper analyzes the development of this self-service banking in India based on the secondary data.

The Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is playing a very important role in the progress and advancement in almost all walks of life. The deregulated environment has provided an opportunity to restructure the means and methods of delivery of services in many areas, including the banking sector. The ICT has been a focused issue in the past two decades in Indian banking. In fact, ICTs are enabling the banks to change the way in which they are functioning. Improved customer service has become very important for the very survival and growth of banking sector in the reforms era. The technological advancements, deregulations, and intense competition due to the entry of private sector and foreign banks have altered the face of banking from one of mere intermediation to one of provider of quick, efficient and customer-friendly services. With the introduction and adoption of ICT in the banking sector, the customers are fast moving away from the traditional branch banking system to the convenient and comfort of virtual banking. The most important virtual banking services are phone banking, mobile banking, Internet banking and ATM banking. These electronic channels have enhanced the delivery of banking services accurately and efficiently to the customers. The ATMs are an important part of a bank’s alternative channel to reach the customers, to showcase products and services and to create brand awareness. This is reflected in the increase in the number of ATMs all over the world. ATM is one of the most widely used remote banking services all over the world, including India. This paper analyzes the growth of ATMs of different bank groups in India.
International Scenario

If ATMs are largely available over geographically dispersed areas, the benefit from using an ATM will increase as customers will be able to access their bank accounts from any geographic location. This would imply that the value of an ATM network increases with the number of available ATM locations, and the value of a bank network to a customer will be determined in part by the final network size of the banking system. The statistical information on the growth of branches and ATM network in select countries.

Indian Scenario

The financial services industry in India has witnessed a phenomenal growth, diversification and specialization since the initiation of financial sector reforms in 1991. Greater customer orientation is the only way to retain customer loyalty and withstand competition in the liberalized world. In a market-driven strategy of development, customer preference is of paramount importance in any economy. Gone are the days when customers used to come to the doorsteps of banks. Now the banks are required to chase the customers; only those banks which are customercentric and extremely focused on the needs of their clients can succeed in their business today.
