Despite this, there are many challenges that organizations face when using social media among employees, for example: disrupting their productivity. This study aimed to identify the types of social media that are used by employees during their work and to know the extent of their impact on their productivity. A systematic literature review approach was followed. By reviewing and analyzing 37 articles and studies, the study concluded that social media, which can be categorized into social network, messages, email, forums, blogs, Wikis and many more, has become a common communication method for employees to exchange knowledge and collaborate among colleagues in the organization. By presenting and analyzing the previous literature related to the subject of the study, most of the primary studies demonstrated that the use of social media is beneficial to organizational and personal productivity. However, some studies have shown negative effects of social media use in the workplace. Most studies are not able to explain the actual causality of the employment factor that actually affects employee productivity in the workplace because they present their findings based on cross-sectional data. Therefore, this review can contribute to enriching the literature and serve as a basis for future studies concerned with determining the causality of the use of social media on employee productivity. Accordingly, this review proposed the intervention model for Internet addiction as a tool through which the causality of the use factor that contributes to the adverse effects of the organization's productivity and intervention can be addressed.</p> Issaam N.

Using the descriptive-analytical approach, the study used a questionnaire to collect data and targeted an organized random sample of (231) persons in the Gaza Strip's official temporary work programs. According to the findings, the respondents' commitment to the organization was more significant than their commitment to them. It was also discovered that the target organizations are concerned about their reputation. The fulfillment of the organization's commitments to the individual had an impact on the individual's commitment to the organization on the one hand, and the organization's perceived reputation on the other. Because of their role in enhancing worker commitment and improving organizational reputation, the study recommended that organizations pay attention to the psychological contract as one of the tools of motivation, in addition to the necessity of fulfilling their obligations towards workers. It is suggested that future studies be focused on employees who work in more stable working settings.</p> Alaedin K.

The research aims to find solutions to these problems by identifying their causes and suggesting a model supported by virtual reality technologies and mobile applications within the context of sensory marketing in a manner that is appropriate for the clothing sector and mobile devices. The study built on previous studies, and targeted Palestinian consumers in the clothing sector using two tools to collect data, namely, a questionnaire and a focus group. The descriptive and deductive approach was adopted in analyzing data and drawing conclusions. Results showed the positive role of virtual reality in increasing consumer's trust in online stores and helped consumers to overcome their fears of item's picture not matching the real product, in addition to reducing returns and other factors. This model would serve as a starting point for further expansion and generalization worldwide at a later time.The study recommends the adoption of virtual reality in online selling applications and implementing the proposed model.</p> Eman H.

As such, this is empirical research on the impact of ethical entrepreneurial leadership on SMEs’ performance in a developing country of Morocco based on data collected with Moroccan entrepreneurial leaders from different SMEs. This study investigates the required ethics of entrepreneurial leaders in order to maintain a positive performance of their businesses. Contrary to the majority of studies in developing countries which focused on different skills of entrepreneurial leaders, this study regards entrepreneurial leadership and business performance within SMEs to be inter-related and the ethical qualities of entrepreneurial leaders determine the performance of their organizations (SMEs) in the first place. This study, therefore, establishes a new insight into focusing on ethical perspective of entrepreneurial leaders which are relevant to maintaining positive performance of organization by possessing the required ethics. In other words, it takes a convergent direction of various organizational performance dimensions which exist in the literature and focuses its scope on organizational performance achieved by ethical dimension (ethical attributes) of entrepreneurial leaders. The findings of this study support the conclusion that ethical entrepreneurial leadership is an important style in improving SMEs performance in Morocco as a developing country. Additionally, the findings have implications on theory and practice. The results provide an empirical ethical skill of entrepreneurial leaders in a developing context, a context that lacks investigation. In practice, the results serve as a perquisite and useful reference for success for practitioners and policy makers of the ethical skills required to improve business performance.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Copyright (c) https://ijbeg.com/index.php/1/article/view/89
