New issue of Corporate Governance and Organizational Behavior Review

The editorial team is pleased to announce that the new issue of the journal Corporate Governance and Organizational Behavior Review (Volume 4, Issue 2) has been released. The papers published in this issue deal with different aspects of corporate governance such as passive investors, public-private partnerships, human resource management, employment relations, United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDG), financial leverage, shareholders’ return, financial performance, public policy, etc.

Specifically, the key research question of the paper by Hugh Grove, Maclyn Clouse, and Thomas King is to analyse the major implications for corporate governance from the emergence and perspective of passive investors. In more detail, such implications might stimulate the current body of knowledge in the corporate governance research field by moving forward both the theoretical and practical perspectives through delivering value to the previous studies.

Moses Onyoin studies the growing diffusion of public-private partnership (PPP) in public service provision. The Author investigates the possible implications of the PPP modality on human resource management (HRM) practice at the organizational level. Thirteen critical propositions are delineated from interpretively intersecting extant knowledge from PPP and HRM strands of literature.
