This study was set against the backdrop of educational institutions in Punjab, Pakistan, with the intent to elucidate these interrelationships. Using a quantitative research approach, we gathered data from employees through comprehensive surveys and subsequently analyzed it using the PLS-SEM<br />technique. The findings revealed a robust positive relationship between GHRP and WWB. Furthermore, EW emerged as a pivotal mediator, bridging the gap between GHRP and WWB. Notably, the combined impact of GHRP and EW on WWB was found to be more profound than when they were considered separately. These results underscore the imperative of integrating sustainable HR practices in educational settings and the value of cultivating employee wisdom. Beyond promoting eco-friendly initiatives, the research<br />emphasizes the resultant enhancement in the work environment and the overall well-being of staff members. This study augments the existing literature, offering a unique perspective on the intertwined roles of GHRP, EW, and WWB in the educational milieu of Punjab.</p> 2023-12-31T00:00:00-07:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Administrative and Management Sciences Journal Measuring Job Performance through Leadership with the Mediating Effect of Emotional Intelligence 2023-11-05T19:39:40-07:00 Saleha Ahsan Attia Aman-Ullah <p>The aim of this study is to measure the effect of leadership on job performance through the mediating role of emotional intelligence. Primary data were collected from 530 Pakistani private hospital employees. Structured questionnaire was used to collect the data. SMART PLS 4.0 software was used to draw the results from the data. Statistical techniques like, bootstrapping through process were used to explore the results and to test the hypotheses from the collected data. The results of this study revealed that leadership has a positive impact on job performance of employees in private hospitals of Pakistan. Further, bootstrapping analysis revealed that emotional intelligence mediates the positive effect of leadership on job performance in health sector. The study highlights that leadership is not only effective or applicable in western countries only, but it is also very effective in Pakistan. The most prominent limitation of this study is that the data were gathered from a single source. This may occur common method variance. Cross-sectional approach is also one of the limitations of this study. In health sector, leadership can enhance the job performance of the employees through the mediating role of emotional intelligence. Proper and meaningful training should be given to organizational leaders in hospitals with specific focus on leadership skills in improving emotional intelligence and job performance. The research studies on measuring the role of leadership on job performance through the mediating role of emotional intelligence are very limited. Little investigations are available on the leadership and its role in health sector especially in Pakistan. This study clarifies the role of leadership in enhancing job performance of the health care employees through the existence of the emotional intelligence. No study tested this model with three theories. This study makes a theoretical contribution by integrating three relevant theories; Campbell's theory of job performance, Goleman's mixed model theory, leadership theory.</p> 2023-12-31T00:00:00-07:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Administrative and Management Sciences Journal The Impact of Ethical Leadership on Stressors and Employee Performance 2023-11-03T21:51:52-07:00 Riffat Naheed Saqib Yaqoob Malik <p>This study aimed to investigate the correlation between stressors and ethical leadership, and their impact on the performance of critical area nurses in a tertiary care hospital.

Some have abundant of natural resources while someone have abundant of human resources and so on. Due to scarce of resources a country needs effective and efficient utilization of resources. Effective and efficient utilization of resources depends upon good governance, competent and sincere economic managers. Keeping in view of the said perception, current study examined the role of good governance in the debt management and economic performance. Current study used the World Bank data from the period of 1990 to 2020. Economic performance is measured by the per capita income (PCI) and taken as dependent variable. Whereas, debt to gross domestic product (GDP) is taken an independent variable. While good governance (GG) is taken as mediating variable and measured through The Worldwide Governance Indicators (WGI) project constructs aggregate indicators of six broad dimensions of governance such as voice and accountability, political stability and absence of violence/terrorism, government effectiveness, regulatory quality, rule of Law and Control of Corruption. Econometric equation is developed to measure the direct and indirect effect of GG with respect to debt to GDP and PCI. The study results concluded that there is no relationship between debt to GDP and economic development. While interesting finding is that there is significant relationship between GG and economic performance. Study also found insignificant mediation of GG between debt to GDP and economic development.</p> 2023-12-31T00:00:00-07:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Administrative and Management Sciences Journal Effect of Currency Devaluation in Pakistan: A Prospect of Short Term and Long Term 2023-12-16T21:55:19-07:00 Sana Amin Shumaila Hashim <p>Currency devaluation is a standout amongst the most emotional even awful proportions of financial strategy that a legislature may attempt It generally creates cries of shocks and Sustainable economic growth and development is undoubtly, one of the most challenging development issue, nowadays, in the developing countries Therefore, this study investigates theoretically and empirically the impact of currency devaluation on economic growth of Pakistan The study finds evidence of non-linearity in this relationship and capture that through a smooth transition regression model.
