Title: Practicum Performance in Singapore and the Philippines of Hospitality Students in a State University
Name: RUBIE ANDOY ARROYO
Abstract:

This study was conducted to assess the level of on- the- job training (OJT ) performance of the B.S Hotel and Restaurant Management and Food Business Management praticumers of Central Mindanao University (CMU) at Musuan, Bukidnon. The study had as its respondents the 16 on- campus and 26 off- campus practicumers and 10 OJT supervisors. The statistical tools used for the analysis and interpretation of the data were the weighted mean, Pearson Product Moment correlation coefficient, and t- test. The OJT programs have been implemented effectively, enabling the on- and off- campus practicumers to perform well in their jobs as evidenced by the high ratings they obtained in the job performance evaluation by OJT supervisors.

The level of implementation of the OJT programs significantly influences the level of job performance of the practicumers. The higher the implementation of the OJT program is, the better the level of job performance of the practicumers is also. Being so, the school and its partner companies should further intensify the OJT programs in place to fully prepare the practicumers for their OJT and employment afterwards. To make the OJT program more effective, the school should appropriately address the identified concerns of the practicumers.

Title: Dominant Logic and Quantum Leadership: How both Relate to Entrepreneurial Aptitude among Business and Non-Business Students
Name: MICHELLE G. SIMBULAN
Abstract:

The centerpiece of the study is the dominant logic, quantum leadership practices, and entrepreneurial aptitude perceived by business students and non-business students from public and private higher education institutions (HEIs) in Bukidnon. The study used the descriptive method. Questionnaires were distributed to and casual interviews were organized for randomly selected Business and Accountancy 4th year students in 2 public universities and 2 private higher education institutions. There were 160 student respondents. The business and non-business students agree about proactiveness, routines, and learning in the dominant logic set of practices and strongly agree about external orientations. Both groups also agree about autopoietic flow, and uncertainty and ambiguity in the quantum leadership set of practices. There was a significant difference in the perceptions of business and non-business students about dominant logic and quantum leadership practices. Dominant logic and quantum leadership have significant correlations with entrepreneurial aptitude. Students from private and public educational institutions have significant difference sin their perceptions about dominant logic and quantum leadership. I suggest a form of priority intervention: business students ought to be provided with on-the-job-training in business establishments so they acquire a good grasp on the what and the how of business.

Title: Human Resource Practices and its Influence on Pre-Attrition among Independent Electric Companies
Name: DULCE CORAZON D. ESPERON
Abstract:

The study establishes the influence of Human Resource Management practices on the organizational commitment, perceived organizational support,psychological contracts and pre-attrition of employees. The results reveal that the majority of the employees in the two companies strongly expressed no intention of leaving the organization. Working conditions and performance appraisals were favorably rated followed by staffing, recruitment/hiring , equal employment opportunity, information sharing, training, reward and benefits. They too expressed a high degree of agreement to the fulfillment of psychological contracts, validating the finding that the expected obligations of the company were met and that the employees were satisfied. Organizational support and rewards were the foremost predictors of pre-attrition. Of the nine Human Resource Management practices taken in combination, rewards, staffing , training and performance appraisal were the best joint predictors of pre-attrition. Employees consider Human Resource Management practices as organizational support. When the organization uses its Human Resource Management practices to enhance employees\' performance to reward employees\' performance, and to display its commitment and support for employees, the organization is perceived to be committed and supportive of its employees;which, in turn,makes employees more committed to the organization and make them want to stay.

Title: Profile, Practices and Potentials of Wild Honey Gatherers
Name: GLORIA T. CASABAL, JOY JAKOSALEM-BALANE and JES B. TIROL
Abstract:

Wild honey bees (WHB) are very important in the biodiversity and conservation of the forests. In Bohol, Apis dorsata or \"Putyukan\" found in heavily forested areas produce huge supply of honey. Residents along forest lines have been harvesting wild honey for economic value. Their number has not been accounted for nor their practices documented. The study aimed to provide information about wild honey gatherers known as mamuhagay in two barangays in Bilar, Bohol. Specifically it determined the socio-economic profile of mamuhagays, manner of harvesting, economic value of wild honey, potentials and issues related to wild honey gathering. The study found out that mamuhagays are rural poor who augment their income by harvesting wild honey. The job requires no capital, only skill and hard labor. It exposes the gatherers to risks and dangers. The lure of immediate income that it could bring at the end of the day has been their incentive. Almost half of them had been harvesting in the last five years while one-fourth had been in the trade for ten years. The income from wild honey comprised almost a fifth of their total annual income. The peak season for honey gathering is March to April. There is high disparity in pricing between wild honey Php 60 per 375 ml bottle) and processed cultured honey ( Php 250.00 per 200 ml). This could be the basis to the possibility of establishing a wild honey cottage industry. Mamuhagays leave bees wax to rot in the forest floors which could be sold and utilized as honey by-products. Wild honey gathering could be linked to the ecological tourism industry in the province. Organized wild honey gatherers realized the important link of WHB to forest protection because it has become their source of livelihood. Lack of knowledge and information on parameters of WHB population may cause over extraction leading to their extinction.
