More so, the consciousness of consumers about the environmental challenges is increasing and companies are responding to them through what is regarded as “green marketing”. Green marketing represents the development, implementation, and marketing of eco-friendly products. This study was constituted to unearth the green marketing practices that are administered by organizations since studies on the phenomenon are said to be at the infantile stage. A systematic literature review was undertaken using 26 articles from 23 journals published between 2013 and 2022. After an extensive evaluation of the literature, three thematic areas were extracted: green marketing practices, green marketing influences on consumer behavior, and the relevance of green marketing to organizations. The study summarized the green marketing practices and their influence on consumer behavior in figures 3 and 4 respectively. The relevance of green marketing to organizations was summarized in table 4. At the back of the review, the research provided some insightful directions for further studies on the phenomenon.</p> 2022-12-20T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Future of Business Administration https://www.diamondopen.com/journals/index.php/fba/article/view/345 An Exploration of the Implications of Human Resources Analytics for Workforce Planning 2023-02-02T06:53:34+00:00 Giamene Odom go1mpo@bolton.ac.uk Denis Hyams-Ssekasi d.hyams-ssekasi@bolton.ac.uk <p>Workforce is a tangible and talent-driven asset for high-performing organisations in today's global economy. Arguably, if workforce is not adequately planned, it impacts the effective execution of future business strategies. This research uses Standard Chartered and HSBC Holdings as a case study. A sample size of 60 participants is selected and descriptive data analysis employed to examine the online survey questionnaire. The findings indicate that HRA helps organisations to develop and sustain high-quality planning and eliminates the conventional obstacles HRA provides. It aligns strategic planning by head counting and establishing a clear view of talent demand and supply problems. It is a useful tool used to evaluate the impact of their decision and prioritise future investments in the workforce. Key identifiers include: Control, employee production efficiency, and structure. &nbsp;The study recommends organisations combine demand planning and internal supply analysis to identify workforce gaps and plan accordingly.</p> 2023-01-20T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Future of Business Administration
