    Linking hotel environmental management initiatives and sustainable hotel performance through employees’ eco-friendly behaviour and environmental strategies: a moderated-mediated model
    (Emerald Publishing, 2023-02-13) Rehman, Shafique Ur; Elrehail, Hamzah; Alshwayat, Dana; Ibrahim, Blend; Alami, Rachid
    Purpose: The purpose and current research objective is to determine sustainable hotel performance through hotel environmental management initiatives (HEMI) with the mediating influence of employee’s’ eco-friendly behaviour (EEB), and to determine the moderating role of environmental strategies (ES) in the relationship between HEMI and EEB. Design/methodology/approach: A total of 95 five-star hotels were contacted, with data collected from only 30 of them. The study used only 433 questionnaires for the final analysis with SPSS 25.0 and SmartPLS 3.2.8. Findings: The results revealed that HEMI is positively associated with sustainable hotel performance and with EEB. EEB is positively associated with sustainable hotel performance. ES significantly influence EEB, and significantly strengthen the relationship between HMEI and EEB. EEB significantly mediates the relationship between HEMI and sustainable hotel performance. Practical implications: The current research highlights a significant issue: how the management of the hotel industry uses HEMI, ES and EEB to improve sustainable performance. The study fills the gap in the literature and enables hotel management to concentrate on studying exogenous variables to increase sustainable performance. Originality/value: The current research contributes to the body of knowledge by concentrating on factors that influence sustainable hotel performance. It examines HEMI influence on sustainable performance with moderating (ES) and mediating (EEB) effects, from the leans of natural resource-based view (RBV) theory. © 2022, Emerald Publishing Limited.

    Proposed Model of Work Ethics in Artificial Intelligence and Emerging Digital Technologies
    (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., 2022) Aldulaimi, Saeed Hameed; Abdeldayem, Marwan M.; Abo Keir, Mohammed Yousif; Abdelhakim, Mohamed
    The digital revolution witnessed by human civilization and technological development increases the degree of complexity and takes global dimensions, with many challenges and ethical problems. This research deals with digital ethics from a philosophical side, which must be taken into consideration in light of the reign of the digital age in order to solve and avoid emerging ethical problems. The research draws attention to the need to think beyond the facts and theories related to the current standards for the formation of moral awareness. That calls for and emphasizes the need to spread the culture of information and ethics. The findings of this paper led to propose a practical model to imagine the formation of the ethical model in the digital era consisting of several factors. © 2022 IEEE.

    Information Technology Adoption Barriers in Public Sector
    (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., 2022) Abdelhakim, Mohamed; Abdeldayem, Marwan M.; Aldulaimi, Saeed Hameed
    The utilization of Information Technology (IT) in the public sector became a strategic goal for many organizations to achieve their strategic goals and improve competitive advantages. The implementation of digital services on a national scale is a complex challenge requiring substantial investment in and development of Information and Telecommunication Technology (ICT) resources. The problem of integrating technology is a complex problem. In the public sector, extracting value from big investment in technology and successful implementation is challenging. Although there has been considerable research in the area of the design, development and implementation of computerized systems, there has not been an equivalent research effort in terms of investigating and exploring what are information technology adoption barriers in the public sector. This research used secondary data from published articles and internet. It is concluded that main barriers are: lack of top management support, lack of IT project management, lack of resources, lack of user's involvement, lack of awareness and training, change resistance, culture and structure changes. Main proposed change management strategies for successful IT projects adoption are top management support, more IT resources, more user's involvement in IT projects development to capture user requirements, more motivation, better interactive two ways communication, better understanding, sharing and implementation of the corporate strategy and making sure that departments strategies are aligned with corporate strategy. It is recommended to manage required structure and culture change for successful IT project implementation. © 2022 IEEE.
