2016 Professional Doctorate The moderating impacts of national culture on managerial workforce behaviours in local hotels: A case study in Vietnam
<p><span style="font-family:Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;font-size:x-small;">The research proposition has a context of one factor affecting another factor in terms of the national culture moderating impacts and the hotel managerial workforce performances or behaviours. Therefore, in order to investigate the moderating impacts of Vietnamese national culture, the Hofstede cultural dimensions are used as the investigative and measurement criteria. To address the problem statement, there are two research questions to investigate the research proposition, which are:</span><br /><span style="font-family:Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;font-size:x-small;">A. How does Vietnam‘s national culture impact the behaviour or performance of local managerial staff in Vietnamese hotels?</span><br /><span style="font-family:Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;font-size:x-small;">B. How does the Hofstede Cultural Dimensions explain the moderating impacts of the National Culture on the behaviour or performance of local Vietnamese hotel managerial staff?</span></p>

2014 Honours Should I stay or should go now? Job Embeddedness: An Australian Health Industry Case Study
<span lang="EN-US" style="font-size:x-small;font-family:Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;">This thesis examines the retention of employees through the application of the job embeddedness model developed by Mitchell, Holtom, Lee, Sablynski & Erez (2001). To address the research problems, the study adopted an exploratory case study research design. Specifically, the study used a single instrumental case study, with the Central Coast Local Health District as the unit of analysis. The sample used was Allied Health professionals working at the district. </span> <p style="text-align:justify;line-height:150%;"><span lang="EN-US" style="font-family:'Times New Roman',serif;"><span style="font-size:x-small;font-family:Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;">Overall, the study supports the job embeddedness theory in understanding why employees remain in an organisation. Findings of the study indicated that the job embeddedness model does have applicability in a context outside of the USA. Various fit, sacrifice and links factors emerged as tying employees to the organisation. Interestingly, the study found that off-the-job fit, sacrifice and links were as important, if not more to embedding employees to their jobs.</span><span>  </span><span style="font-size:x-small;font-family:Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;">The case study found that employee career development practices, training, and performance appraisals can contribute to job embeddedness, however, findings suggested that only fit and links were influenced by the practices. </span></span></p>
