Health and safety issues are fast becoming established fundamental antecedents in the development, survival and growth of Small to Medium enterprises (SMEs) throughout the globe. The study sought to find out the main causes of workplace related accidents in SMEs in the construction industry. Furthermore, the study sought to establish managerial strategies employed by SMEs in the construction industry to curb workplace related accidents and also to develop a good health and safety culture in their employees. A quantitative research approach was utilised with closed ended questionnaire being used as the main data collection instrument. A multiple descriptive case study was used to carry out this study. Data was collected from a sample of 100 (Female-20; male-80), drawn from SMEs in the construction industry in Masvingo urban. Data analysis was done using the Statistical package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) Version 21 and Microsoft Excel. The study established that the main precipitators of accidents at workplaces are inappropriate machinery and equipment, inadequate awareness campaigns, failure to put danger warning signage, inadequate and inappropriate personal protective equipment. The strategies that can be employed to curb workplace accidents in the construction industry are giving workers incentives for not involved in accidents, safety meetings before work start, effective communication system, and employee participation on safety issues, training and development, creation of a safety committee and designing a good and effective layout.

The food and beverages industry is one of the most contributing sectors for Indonesian economic growth. It is a profitable business to invest in, due to the development of the Indonesian population. However, the competition in the market is inevitable; thus, companies need to generate strategies of differentiation to retain the customers. One crucial thing in maintaining customer loyalty is to have good management in customer experience. Customer experience was mainly discussed in the Business to Customer (B2C) sector but limitedly explored in the Business to Business (B2B) sector. Customer satisfaction can directly affect and predict customer repurchase intention and customer loyalty. Repurchase intention is crucial in the B2B industry because the buying process in the B2B industry is a rational decision, and it costs more to deal with the new customers than keeping customers already had. Therefore, current research is focused on customer experience; value, loyalty, and satisfaction on repurchase intention in one beverage manufacturing company in Indonesia whose market focus is on the B2B sector. Quantitative research was conducted on July 13th, 2021, to August 5th, 2021 using the availability sampling method and obtained 85 respondents who are the customers of the beverage manufacturing company in Indonesia. Data was analyzed using PLS-SEM (Partial Least Square Structural Equation Modelling) method. This study shows that 78.2% of repurchase intention is explained and significantly affected by the variables discussed in the research. Customer satisfaction is more likely to affect the repurchase intention. However, customer value has no significant effect on repurchase intention. Therefore, it is hoped that this study will give insights to B2B organization managers to set their marketing strategy.

The study used an ex-post facto research design to determine the effect of corporate governance traits on the corporate risk reporting of Nigerian publicly traded financial services firms. The population of research was comprised of all fifty-two (52) publicly traded financial services companies in Nigeria as at October 2021. To sample thirty-nine (39) publicly traded financial services companies, a judgmental sampling approach was used. Secondary data was taken from annual reports and financial statements of selected Nigerian publicly traded financial services companies for five (5) fiscal years covering 20152019 and analyzed using multiple regression analysis. The findings demonstrate a favorable association between the size of the board of directors and corporate risk reporting by Nigerian financial businesses. While independent directors and board gender have no effect on the corporate risk reporting of Nigerian financial services companies. Board activity and profitability have an inverse relationship with corporate risk reporting of Nigerian financial firms. Finally, the research establishes a positive correlation between business size and financial services companies' corporate risk reporting in Nigeria. It is recommended that the regulatory bodies formulate laws relating to risk governance that will enhance corporate risk reporting in Nigeria. Also, the number of independent and female directors should be increased so as to have more influence on decisions that can increase risk reporting transparency.

Sepakung Village is also known as the digital village because of the installation of wireless internet connection facilities in 12 districts around the village. The difficulty of obtaining information in the industry 4.0 era has allowed village officials to create unlimited access opportunities for rural communities as part of the digital benefits and simplify the administrative procedures for residents currently outside the village. This research aims to measure the level of cyber resilience of digital villages, and to find a model of cyber resilience for the development of digital villages in Indonesia based on laws and policies, economy, society and culture, politics and technology. This study is based on the survey data collection method, using questionnaire surveys, and closed-end statements based on the supplementary survey data filling method, using the Likert scale (interval) as the measurement mode of the respondent's answer. The number of participants was 11, most of them were between 15-20 years old. This study shows that most of the interviewees have sufficient understanding, insight and response measures to the threats facing the digital world, but lack collective improvement activities. Cooperation among village stakeholders (including officials, communities, scholars and governments) is needed to realize a digital village community with comprehensive and sustainable network resilience in a borderless global community.

Based on the strategic management processes, it is particularly necessary to initiate but also develop a connection between CSR integration through a dynamic approach and the social philosophy of management, a systematic analysis of the processes that strategically manage CSR and the socially oriented implementation of the topic strategic integration of CSR. Related to these research topics we need to know closely the strategic management processes that integrate CSR, how they work, what influences strategic change and especially how we can define the management tools used to support the implementation of social management philosophy. In this sense, it is absolutely necessary to initiate a theoretical model that highlights, from an organic point of view but also structurally, the dynamics of the relations supported by the philosophy of social management.

Cross-platform framework is becoming more and more popular. Many giant tech companies have their own offering with different programming languages. With so many choices, sometimes it is difficult for a start-up developer to choose which framework will they use for their project. Therefore, this research aims to give insight for start-up developers on which cross-platform framework is better between Flutter and React Native by comparing their performance. This research achieved its goal by creating two identical mobile applications using Flutter and React Native and then comparing their performance using a theoretical framework that measures load time, average frame rate, and memory usage. The result of this testing is that Flutter has a shorter load time at 1.69 second compared to React Native at 4.26 second and lower memory usage at 6.52MB compared to React Native at 27.6MB. Their average frame rate is very comparable hovering around 60 frames per second. With faster load time and lower memory usage Flutter has better performance wise compared to React Native.
