Abstract: The paper aims at assessing internal corporate social responsibility (CSR) programs in private healthcare organizations (PHCO) on employees’ job satisfaction. CSR is expected to provide benefits to organizations. It has been identified that employee empowerment leads to job satisfaction. When employees are provided with authority and autonomy there is motivation and employees experience professional growth leading to sound decision making. It is further discovered that promotion of employee wellbeing will lead to job satisfaction. Employees need to be provided with health and safety programs for motivation. Furthermore, work and life balance will lead to job satisfaction. Hence, policies must accommodate flexible employee working hours. In addition, employees need social activities at the workplace to promote job satisfaction. Finally, provision of incentives which are both monetary and non-monetary. Employees will benefit from competitive salaries and allowances including appraisals and rewards. The results from the conceptual paper are in line with the previous studies from different angles of the world and reveal that CSR activities in an organization can contribute positively to employee job satisfaction. Therefore, the PHCO should bank on motivating employees for better profits.

Abstract: Quality accounting information is essential in the achievement of every organization, most especially the expectation of stakeholders with vested interest in the organization. From the perspective of a developing country like Senegal, this study examines certain key determinants of quality accounting information quoting interesting outcomes with the use of five explanatory variables deployed to support the quantitative study on some selected banks from the highly volatile financial sector of Senegal. The analysis of 290 valid questionnaires provided evidence that internal controls, internal audit, risk assessment, compliance and channels of communication are strong determinants of quality accounting information in Senegal. The study also observed that availability and use of quality and timely information within the banks significantly influenced the quality of accounting information provided to users. Further studies on the subject, especially future research may focus more on the role of the board of directors, audit committees and how their independence and qualification adds to the quality of accounting information.

Title: Stagnation-Point Flow of a Radiative Tangent Hyperbolic Nanofluid over a Nonlinear Surface with Variable Thermal Conductivity

Abstract: This study investigates the boundary layer stagnation point flow of hydromagnetic tangent hyperbolic nanofluid over a nonlinear plane in a porous device under the influence of a prescribed power law thermal condition. The modelled partial differential equations outlining the flow problems are translated into ordinary ones using suitable similarity transformation variables. The resultant equations are numerically solved by the shooting technique together with Runge-Kutta Fehlberg scheme. The effects of the various physical parameters are graphically analyzed and deliberated. The obtained results are validated with related existing studies in the limiting position and found to be in perfect agreement. The results indicate that the hydrodynamic boundary layer structure together with velocity profile decelerate when Darcy and magnetic parameters increase whereas the temperature profile appreciates with these terms. Temperature ratio or wall heating parameter triggers a rise in the heat transfer while the thermal field grows with an increase in the magnitude of thermophoresis and Brownian motion terms. Also, the heat transfer at the surface is a decreasing function of these terms.
