TRANSITION OF YOUTH WITH DISABILITIES FROM EDUCATION TO LABOUR MARKET IN SLOVENIA Print E-mail

 

Aleksandra Tabaj, Tatjana Dolinšek, Črtomir Bitenc

Abstract

The purpose of the article is to present the transition of youth with disabilities from education to labour market in Slovenia. The article introduces the European Social Fund project “Transition”, provided by the partnership of Racio, University Rehabilitation Institute and Auris, operated from 2010 to 2013. The Transition project was intended for two target groups: youth with disabilities in the education process, with the aim to achieve their integration from education to the labour market, and for professionals who provide the transition. Young people in Europe have been facing increasing uncertainty in the labour market. The labour market transition for youth, and especially for youth with disabilities, is a very demanding question. Policymakers and experts in the European Union have therefore developed programs for social inclusion, improved access, achievement and integration of young people with disabilities into the labour market. Youth unemployment during economic crises has increased in all parts of the world, with the impact of prolonging the duration of unemployment. The transition of young people with disabilities from school to the labour market in Slovenia is not integrally and adequately organised. A support system should be introduced to monitor young people with disabilities while they are still at school and prepare them for entering the labour market. After finishing school, a model of transition from school to work is proposed to prevent unemployment.

Key words: disability, transition, education, labour market

IMPACTS OF REMITTANCE ON THE SOCIOECONOMIC CONDITION OF BANGLADESH: AN ANALYSIS Print E-mail

Iqbal Ahmed Chowdhury

Abstract

Remittance is considered to be one of the influential sectors of the socioeconomic development of the Third World countries, particularly countries like Bangladesh. In Bangladesh, remittance contributes to the socioeconomic development, maintain foreign exchange reserves, and manage balance of payment, etc. This paper particularly explains the impacts of remittance on the socioeconomic condition of Bangladesh. The paper is written based on secondary sources, published documents on the impacts of remittance. The paper reveals that remittance has both positive and negative impacts on the socioeconomic condition of Bangladesh. However, the positive impacts are more influential than negative one. In Bangladesh, remittance helps people generate income, provide children advanced education, increase social status, create employment opportunities for poor, and above all empower women. People can avail material and non-material culture and can enjoy civic amenities of the modern era. Although, it creates inequality in the society and cultural lag among people, its influential aspect to the socioeconomic development of Bangladesh is more prevailing. As a result, this paper recommends for necessary initiatives from Government Organizations and Non Government Organizations to maintain both remittance and migration flow normal and congenial.

Keywords: International Migration, Remittance Flow, Socioeconomic Development, Social Status, Civic Amenities

THE IMPORTANCE OF LEGAL ORGANISATION OF RAPIDLY GROWING COMPANIES FOR INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS COMPETITIVENESS Print E-mail

Riko Novak, Viljem Pšeničny

Abstract

This article discusses the importance of a company’s legal form for the process of internationalisation using a sample of 1577 Slovenian companies. We refer to previous studies and on the basis of additional statistical data evaluate whether the choice of corporate legal structure influences a company’s ability to compete internationally. In the domestic market, most companies operate as limited liability companies; this is also the most frequent legal form in which companies enter foreign markets. We conclude that the form by itself does not influence the decision to go international.

Key words: dynamic companies, dynamic entrepreneurship, internationalisation, legal form

THE IMPACT OF MANAGERIAL MULTICULTURAL COMPETENCES ON COMPANY’S COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE IN GLOBAL ECONOMY Print E-mail

Rosana Grušovnik, Dejan Jelovac

Abstract

In this article, we will present an empirical account on management of intercultural differences. The focus will be on managerial dilemma how to achieve the company’s competitiveness with adaptation to market forces as well as to the cultural environment in which they operate. The contemporary companies in global economy need competent management with willingness, awareness, knowhow and skills to successfully communicate and operate across cultural borders. Because they are not visible on the surface, they represent an overlooked factor that can have an impact on the organisation’s success. In our qualitative empirical study on the sample of 28 managers from Slovenia, EU, and former Yugoslavia, we try to find out how their intercultural competences affect everyday business activities, whether the management is neglecting the impact of cultural factors, and whether the reason for such neglecting is the lack of intercultural competences. In the discussion and conclusion of the article listed are recommendations to managers and suggestions to academics for further exploration.

Keywords: business culture, organisational culture, cultural differences, intercultural competences, management.

THE ACTION MODEL FOR MEASURING INFLUENCE IN ADVERTISING Print E-mail

Andrej Kovačič

Abstract

Despite the abundance of different theories there is little agreement on the suitable model that would explain how influence in advertising works. Historically, theoretical models have moved from including solely rational components towards including emotional components and from focusing on sequential processing towards hierarchy free processing models. Based on the existing literature, several most representative models are presented, described and evaluated. In a quest to explain a broader view on advertising influence we introduced the ACTION model (an acronym for Aim, Connection, Techniques, Identity, Opportunity and Numerous). Advantages, suggestions for future research and a critical discussion of using this model are further discussed.

Keywords: ACTION, influence, advertising, model.
