The issue of VIL’s O&amp;M in light of ECC&nbsp; is the most vital problem which needs a genuine solution through the application of implementing strategies from teachers and parents views in Pakistan. This qualitative study focuses on implementing strategies of ECC with O&amp;M, with perspectives of teachers and parents of VILs in Pakistan. Population of the study was from two government secondary level institutes of VILs in Lahore, Pakistan. Purposive sampling technique was used for collection of data. Data collection tools were Semi-Structure interviews and Observations. This research tries to validate the research questions; 1: To investigate contribution of modified ECC in connection to ( O&amp;M) Orientation &amp; Mobility application for VILs with respect to the views of teachers and parents 2: To investigate ECC’s implementing strategies&nbsp; in affiliation to Orientation and Mobility in view of VILs teachers and parents. Final results of the research paper recommended that ECC’s implementing strategies in relation to O&amp;M practices support independent movement of VILs in their settings. Teachers and parents of VILs proposed the inclusion of all the sub-components of ECC with O&amp;M practices to ensure independent mobility of VILs. There is crucial and valuable importance of these implementing strategies of ECC with O&amp;M to be practiced by teachers and parents of VILs in Pakistan.</em></p> 2022-09-23T04:53:53+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Research Journal of Social Sciences and Economics Review https://ojs.rjsser.org.pk/index.php/rjsser/article/view/493 Investigating the Relationship of Talent Management on Employee Performance, Employee Engagement and Job Satisfaction 2022-10-04T21:49:52+00:00 Tauqeer Hussain Hakro tauqeer.hakro@usindh.edu.pk Mehtab Begum Siddiqui mehtab@usindh.edu.pk Ashfaque Ali Banbhan ashfaque.banbhan@usindh.edu.pk <p><em>This study investigated the relationship of talent management, employee performance, employee engagement and job satisfaction in Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) sector of Sindh, Pakistan. However, employee engagement also showed mediating effect with talent management and job satisfaction. Primary data obtained through close-ended questionnaire containing seven related choices showing level of agreement or disagreement. Data obtained through convenience sampling which is an item of non-probability sampling. Data obtained from officers and employees of NGOs sector of Sindh, Pakistan. Data analysed and interpreted by Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) and Partial Least Square- Structural Equation Modelling (PLS-SEM). All relationships tested positive and significant including direct and indirect. Since, mediating effect of employee engagement tested positive and significant with talent management and job satisfaction. Despite, it is further suggested that the existing model along with other novel variables can be used in other sectors of the country to further explore and understand the relationships of such variables.</em></p> 2022-09-23T05:21:48+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Research Journal of Social Sciences and Economics Review https://ojs.rjsser.org.pk/index.php/rjsser/article/view/505 Impact of Corporate Governance on Investment Efficiency: Evidence from Non-Financial Firm of Pakistan 2022-10-04T21:49:44+00:00 Asiya Khattak asiya@northern.edu.pk Dr. Arif Hussain arifhussain@awkum.edu.pk Dr. Junaid Athar Khan junaid@awkum.edu.pk <p><em>The study aimed to investigate the impact of corporate governance on the investment efficiency of the non-financial firms of Pakistan. Data was taken from a sample of 56 non-financial firms listed on the Pakistan stock exchange. The data was collected from the year 2010 to 2020. Results of the Generalized method of moments (GMM) indicated a statistically significant impact of corporate governance practices i.e., board independence, board meeting, the board size, audit committee meeting, audit quality, managerial ownership, ownership concentration, and institutional ownership except for audit committee independence on investment efficiency. However, </em><em>no statistically significant impact of audit committee independence on investment efficiency was found. The research concluded that adopting international standards of corporate governance might help formulate and rectify the governance system in the country by emulating the successful features of corporate governance seen in advanced economies.</em></p> 2022-09-23T05:41:13+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Research Journal of Social Sciences and Economics Review https://ojs.rjsser.org.pk/index.php/rjsser/article/view/503 Microfinance and Women’s Empowerment: Exploring Gender-Power Dynamics in the Lives of Women Borrowers from Rural Chakwal 2022-10-04T21:49:36+00:00 Luqman Ahmed ahmed.luqman@gmail.com Dr. Aisha Anees Malik aamalik@qau.edu.pk <p><em>Access to microfinance has come to be seen as a potent means of empowering women and changing gender-power dynamics in favor of women. The current study employs framework for resources, agency, and achievements developed by Kabeer (1999) as well as Mayoux's (1999) three paradigm model to assess the impact of microfinance programs targeting women in Pakistan. It highlights that as far as ability to earn money, mobility, and access to public spaces go, microfinance does play an important role in empowering women. It also assists women in gaining prompt access to crucial funds. The research findings go on to show that women were more likely than men to participate in microfinance programs due to the perception that they are worth the credit risk. Patriarchal norms, however, lead to male household members being the ultimate users of loans taken out by women. The microfinance programs also lack training and capacity building initiatives, making them less effective. Women borrowers eventually become victims of a never-ending debt cycle where men realize their interests through pushing women to take loans and microfinance providers pushing women to repay loans.</em></p> 2022-09-30T09:44:59+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Research Journal of Social Sciences and Economics Review
