Authors: DR. NICKIE BOY A. MANALO

Abstracts: The study was conducted to determine the effectiveness of marketing strategies employed by Supermarkets in Batangas City that would be the basis for a proposed marketing plan. The study covered individual customers as the respondent of the study. Random-quota sampling was used to determine the possible respondents of the study. The researchers decided to have five (5) intervals per customers to come up for the right/accurate respondents following the procedure of probability sampling. Seventy five (75) respondents for each supermarket are being surveyed to come up for a three hundred (300) total respondents. Data were collected and analysed with frequency, mean, t-test and ANOVA. Result showed that that most of the respondents are single, female, professionals, earning an income of about 5001-25,000, college undergraduate and graduate, and have no children. Furthermore the product, pricing, and promotional strategies employed by SM Supermarket, Excel Toms, Puregold, and Citimart are effective. On the other hand, the placement strategies employed by the aforementioned supermarket are less effective. Consequently, civil status provides significant difference on the respondents assessment based on the pricing strategies employed by Excel Tom’s and promotional strategies employed by Citimart Supermarket. Also, sex does not provide significant difference on their assessment based on the marketing strategies employed by the different supermarket in Batangas City. Moreover, occupation provides significant difference on their assessment based on the product strategies employed by Citimart Company and placement strategies employed by SM supermarket. Furthermore, family monthly income does not provide significant difference on their assessment based on the product, pricing and placement strategies employed by the four (4) selected supermarket. On the other hand, family monthly income provides significant difference on their assessment based on the promotional strategies used by Excel Toms Supermarket. Educational attainment provides significant difference on their assessment based on the product and pricing strategies employed by Citimart Company and promotional strategies of SM, Puregold and Citimart. Lastly, the family size provides significant difference on their assessment based on the product and pricing strategies employed by Citimart Company and placement strategies of Puregold Supermarket.

CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILTY IN NIGERIA: LEGAL FRAME WORK AND NATURE OF OBLIGATION OWED BY COMPANIES TO UNDERTAKE

Authors: OMENGALA KINGSLEY ADEYI

Abstracts: The company is one of the most ingenious inventions of humanity. The company is an all- important vehicle for allocating and efficiently employing capital in our societies, providing goods, services, jobs- and revenue. In short, the company is a vehicle for economic efficiency. However, the activities of companies, no doubt, can have enormously detrimental effects on the environment. Oil spills are some of the most visible examples, but industries as varied as chemical manufacturing, mining, agriculture and fishing can do permanent damage to the local ecosystem of their host environment. Many corporations profit from this devastating deterioration of the global environment. Corporate social responsibility is one means by which corporate bodies integrate social, environmental, and economic concerns into their values and operations in a transparent and accountable manner with a view to adding socio- economic and cultural value to the lives of individual members of, and or the entire community within which they operate. The interventions of these corporate bodies in the form of corporate social responsibility is certainly one way by which the socio-economic well being of the benefitting communities or individuals can be enhanced and the burden on government, with respect to provision of social infrastructures and environmental safety may be lessened. In Nigeria not many corporate bodies, outside some Non Governmental Organizations and some multi-national companies, undertake these corporate social responsibility activities. This attitude of companies not taking seriously the issue of CSR is not unconnected with the popular view that CSR is nothing more than voluntary corporate engagement in philanthropy or charity. This paper seeks to examine the legal framework for corporate social responsibility in Nigeria. The extent, if any, to which corporate bodies operating in Nigeria are obliged to undertake these corporate social responsibility activities. The paper will argue that there exist sufficient statutory provisions that may be explored to make it imperative for corporate bodies operating within the Nigeria economic climate to undertake some form of corporate social responsibility activity notwithstanding the seeming absence of any specific provision of any enactment stipulating or imposing obligation on corporate bodies to undertake or embark on corporate social responsibility activities.

ENGINEERING EDUCATION IN THE PHILIPPINES

Authors: DONNALYN C. CABACES

Abstracts: Education is the process of acquiring the body of knowledge and skills that people are expected to have. A good education develops a critical thinking, encourages intellectual curiosity, which lead to lifelong learning. Quality education today is measured by effectiveness, efficiency, sustainability and relevance. Relevance in education means addressing the needs of the students and the society and preparing the graduates to be globally competitive. The main purpose of this paper is to present the current educational system in the Philippines particularly the engineering education. The Philippine educational system consists of K to12 program and tertiary level. The K to 12 Program covers Kindergarten and 12 years of basic education to provide sufficient time for mastery of concepts and skills, develop lifelong learners, and prepare graduates for tertiary education, middle-level skills development, employment, and entrepreneurship. The last two years of this program is the senior high school where the students can choose from learning areas of core curriculum or specific tracks: Academic; Technical-Vocational-Livelihood; Sports and Arts; and Design. Academic tracks include Accountancy, Business and Management (ABM), Humanities and Social Sciences (HUMSS), Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and General Academic Strand (GAS). The students in STEM strand will continue pursuing their studies to engineering education in the tertiary level. The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) is the governing body of higher education institutions (HEIs) in the Philippines. CHED memorandum order (CMO) No. 37 Series of 2012, gives the policies, standards and guidelines in the establishment of an outcomes-based education (OBE) system in HEIs offering engineering programs. It aims to transform engineering education into an outcomes-based system to meet the equivalent global quality standards. OBE focuses on what is essential for all students to be able to do successfully at the end of their learning experiences. HEIs are now on the process of implementation of OBE. Information about OBE are disseminated to all stakeholders, curriculum and course specifications are revised, capacity building through seminars and trainings are conducted, improvement of facilities, assessment and evaluation, and continuous quality improvement are conducted for its implementation.

INFLUENCE OF ORGANISATIONAL STRUCTURE AND COMMUNICATION FLOW ON TEACHER PERFORMANCE IN PUBLIC SECONDARY SCHOOLS IN AKINYELE LOCAL GOVERNMENT, OYO STATE, NIGERIA

Authors: OSEMWEGIE, OSAYOMWANBOR

Abstracts: This study investigated the influence of organizational structure and communication flow on teacher performance in Akinyele Local Government Area, Oyo State. The study used formalization, centralization, specialization, departmentalization, hierarchical level, informal structure, span of control, downward communication, upward communication and horizontal communication as indices to investigate the influence of organizational structure and communication flow on teacher performance. The descriptive survey design was adopted for the study. 20 public secondary schools which comprised 434 teachers and 20 principals were purposively selected and managerial systems theory provided the framework for the study.Four hypotheses were formulated while two questionnaires were designed (OSCFTPO) for teachers and (OSCFTPS) for principals which were used to collect data. Pearson Product Moment Correlation (PPMC) and Multiple Regression were used to test the hypotheses at 0.05 level of significance. The findings among others revealed no significant relationship between organizational structure indices and teacher performance in public secondary schools (r = -0.039; P> 0.05) On the other hand, the findings showed a significant relationship between communication flow indices and teacher performance (r = 0.191; 0.05) The findings also revealed that organizational structure indices and communication flow indices jointly have positive and significant contribution to teacher performance ( 8.146; P< 0.05). However, organizational structure did not have relative contribution to teacher performance while communication flow has relative contribution to teacher performance. The study recommended among others that the principals of public secondary schools in Akinyele local government, Oyo state should know that school as a formal organization cannot be separated from social interaction and informal communication. Therefore, principals should integrate informal organization to the schools to enhance the social behaviour and instincts of teachers. Through this practice, the teachers will have a feeling of belongingness to the school. Conclusively, in view of the findings, regardless of the communication flow prevalence in the school, it could only be significant if the right organizational structure was implemented.
