Does Geographical Proximity of the Host to the Domestic Country of Investors Reduce Informational and Managerial Uncertainty?
Jaime Cahill and Carolan McLarney

This paper scrutinizes the effects of geographic proximity of the host region to the domestic country of the investor, and the results indicate that determinants such as language and opposing cultural or political systems may be indirectly responsible for the increase in uncertainty concerning geographic distance. The paper shows that holding these factors constant nearly eliminated location bias in terms of proximity, because regardless of the distance, investment opportunities appeared equally as likely or favorable to potential investors. The key finding is that FDI location behavior varies between sectors. For industries concerned with the development of tangible goods, such as manufacturing businesses, geographic distance has a prominent impact on the degree of uncertainty and so closer proximities are preferred and encourage larger amounts of inward FDI. Industries involved in the output of intangible goods experience less informational and managerial uncertainty with increasing geographic distance between investing parties, as knowledge-transfer presents less costs and risk.

Srishti and Mahender Yadav

With the growth of the Internet, the scope for online shopping has also grown tremendously. But growth of online shopping has made the transferring of money online an important issue for the potential customers. This study is conducted with the objective to find out the problems and challenges of restricting online consumers to adopt cashless payment mode. Data from 600 respondents were collected by using a structured questionnaire. By applying t-Test and ANOVA, it was found that demographic variables, except gender, have no significant effect on adoption of cashless payment mode by online consumers. By applying factor analysis, five factors, namely, complex system, perceived risk and lack of trust, habit of cash payments, self-inefficacy and security issues, were extracted and by applying Multiple Regression Analysis, it was found that all these factors significantly affect the adoption of cashless payment mode by the online consumers and restrict consumers to pay online for their online purchases.

Sushma Sharma and Ajay Kumar Sharma

Over the years, the organizations felt the importance of human resource development and adopted different techniques for enhancement of the skills of the employees for the progress of the organization.

The Mediating Effect of Emotional Exhaustion in the Relationship Between Emotional Demand and Turnover Intention
N T Azharudeen and A Anton Arulrajah

The objective of the study is to examine the mediating effect of emotional exhaustion in the relationship between emotional demand and turnover intention in the context of three selected apparel manufacturing firms in the Eastern region of Sri Lanka. Employee absenteeism and turnover are key issues of apparel firms in Sri Lanka. In order to achieve the objective of this paper, a questionnaire-based survey was conducted among 153 employees of apparel firms and the collected data was analyzed using simple mediation analysis techniques. The findings of the study reveal that a positive and significant relationship exists among the study variables. Moreover, the empirical findings of the study indicate that both emotional demand and emotional exhaustion have significant effect on turnover intention, and emotional exhaustion partially mediates the relationship between emotional demand and turnover intention. Hence, the apparel industry should take proper measures to regulate the employee's emotions and to control employee's turnover intention as a preventive strategy for employee turnover problem.
