Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The evolutionary velocity of business innovations and digital technologies is extremely high. Traditional training and discipline cannot guarantee that practitioners have sufficient knowledge to face an emerging industry which did not exist at the time of their training. On the other hand, the international business environment has changed rapidly in the past several years, partly due to political conflicts and partly due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Practitioners and entrepreneurs need to foresee future trends such as regarding IoT, I4.0, AI, circular economy, Fintech¸ E-business, delivery platform, work-from-home appliances, facial mask design, disinfectant, food security, agricultural technology, aromatherapy, and health promotion products. These emerging industries foster tremendous business opportunities and growth. Mandatory requirements for human individuals in this era include having a high-quality human mind in addition to performance enhancement, which may be obtained from training and education in aromatherapy, yoga, breathing, and meditation. Practical experiences have many proven benefits for human health, mind setting, decision making, anthropogenic interactions, employee workplace performance, family business succession, organizational commitment, the dynamic capability and absorptive capacity of corporates, and resolving financial distress. This type of new industry within training and education is the key to achieving wellness of humans and entrepreneurs.

The COVID-19 pandemic had a devastating effect on the tourism and hospitality industries in Taiwan, causing some small companies to cease trading and large companies to place their employees on unpaid leave. Placing employees on unpaid leave may have negatively affected the intention of hospitality employees to remain in their jobs. This study examined whether employees’ job insecurity and organizational identification affected their intention to stay in their job during the COVID-19 pandemic. Previously developed scales were adopted to develop items measuring job insecurity, organizational identification, and intention to stay in a job. Responses to 515 returned questionnaires were examined. The results revealed that job insecurity significantly affects organizational identification. Both job insecurity and organizational identification significantly affected intention to stay. Few studies have used path analyses to investigate the relationships among intention to stay, job insecurity, and organizational identification. The indirect effect of organizational identification was analyzed, and evidence supporting a total effect and total indirect effect was obtained. This implies that hospitality companies seeking to retain staff during crises should promote organizational identification among staff. Full article
