COST-BENEFIT STUDY OF SLOVENIAN COMPANIES EMPLOYING PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES: IS EMPLOYING PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES BENEFICIAL FOR THE STATE? Print E-mail

Aleksandra Tabaj, Tatjana Brumnič-Smrekar

Abstract

The article presents a cost-benefit study of financing companies employing persons with disabilities, which are a part of social economy in Slovenia. The main objective was to find out financial inputs and outputs for those companies in relation to state-aid. An overview has been prepared regarding the state-aid benefits compared to taxes paid by companies employing persons with disabilities. These companies have existed in Slovenia for more than 65 years. First companies employing persons with disabilities were established in the 1950s and their status was originally determined in the Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment of Disabled Persons Act. In 2016 they employed more than 11.000 persons in Slovenia and are complementary to other options for employment of persons with disabilities in the open labour market.

Key words: persons with disabilities, employment, companies employing persons with disabilities, cost-benefit, state-aid.

EXAMINING THE LEVEL OF CORRELATIONS BETWEEN THE FACTORS OF ARTISTIC CREATIVITY IN PUPILS OF SLOVENIAN PRIMARY SCHOOLS Print E-mail

Jerneja Herzog, Nika Lopert , Matjaž Duh

Abstract

The article is based on research of fine arts creativity carried out among elementary school fifth-grade students. The introductory theoretical section addresses children’s fine arts development and analyses the very complex notion of fine arts creativity by defining its factors. The second part is an empirical study of fifth-grade students’ fine arts creative skills, based on an assessment of the correlation between the factors defining fine arts creativity. Both descriptive and non-experimental methods were used on a systematic random sample of 1364 Slovene fifth-grade students. The results showed statistically significant differences in the level of fine arts development between the two genders, with the girls being more successful than the boys. The same is true of elaboration as a factor of fine arts creativity. The analysis of linear associations showed some connections between the factors encouraging fine arts creativity and between those enabling it. The connection between these two groups of factors was also established.

Keywords: factors of creativity, correlations, visual art, primary school

Stress in accounting is popular in the area of research for many researchers in the fields of Psychology, Organizational Behavior, Health and Medicine. A significant part of empirical research has been focused on the analysis of the relationships between different individual and organizational stress factors on the job, including the effects of stress on the job. In the paper, we are showing an overview of the key concepts in the field of stress in accounting, covering organizational and personal stress factors in accounting. The emphasis is on the review of the health problems caused by stress in accounting, including a brief review of the psychological cost of stress.

PHYSICAL COURAGE IN HIGH- AND NON-RISK ATHLETES Print E-mail

Črtomir Bitenc, Maša Serec

Abstract

Even though stimulation and sensation seeking, which are typical for high-risk athletes, have been closely linked to high physical courage, little is known about physical courage of high-risk athletes. The purpose of this study was to examine physical courage among high- and non-risk athletes. The convenience sampling was used to reach both groups of the athletes. An anonymous online questionnaire was sent to the Faculty of Sport, several sport clubs and online sport forums in Slovenia. A total of 101 high-risk and 79 non-risk athletes filled out The Physical Courage Questionnaire and The Social Desirability Scale. In addition, important demographic characteristics were obtained. Results showed that high-risk athletes have a higher level of physical courage (F=6.304, p=0.013), and that male athletes are physically more courageous than female athletes (F=4.353, p=0.038). The interaction between gender and the risk of a given sport discipline had a significant effect on physical courage (F=4.936, p=0.028): in the non-risk athlete group female athletes reported being less physically courageous than male athletes, whereas high-risk female athletes scored similarly high on the physical courage scale as high-risk male athletes. Implications and limitations of the research study are discussed.

Keywords: athletes; high-risk athletes; high-risk sports; gender differences; physical courage
