The number of students attending British universities is rapidly increasing, among them, many are international students. These diverse students pose opportunities and concerns regarding the equitable and efficient delivery of the learning environment. This study examines the perceived value within an international learning environment (ILE) and examines antecedents and outcomes of such value in addressing the students' needs. Structure Equation Modeling (PLS-SEM) was used to analyse 323 online survey responses, and thematic analysis and content analysis were used to examine 35 semi-structured interviews. Work-Integrated Learning, Academic Integration, and Scholarship of Teaching and Learning are established as major value practices that have significant relationships with both students' perceived value and satisfaction. The perceived value also mediates the relationship between different value …

Employees have different perceptions and attitudes toward risks linked to the industry of tourism and hospitality and tend to be risk-taking or risk-averse by putting themselves in risky situations or exposing others to harm. Therefore, this paper tries to identify the antecedents that form their perceptions and attitudes to risks in Egyptian hotels and travel agencies and examines the mediating role of risk perception as well. One of the study’s key advantages is the respondent-matching data, derived from 18 privately-owned hotels and 22 travel agencies. As a result, based on horizontal segregation, the study’s target sample was non-administrative responsibility occupations. Findings revealed that employees’ accumulated beliefs and knowledge were found to have a positive impact on risk perception and risk attitude. Importantly, risk perception plays a mediating role between the identified constructs and employees’ risk …

The purpose of the current study is to identify the response of restaurants to COVID-19. Findings were derived from a qualitative approach by conducting thirty-nine interviews at the managerial level of thirty-five independent restaurants in Cairo. During March and April 2020, open-ended interviews were performed, and then analyzed using NVivo 9.0 software. This study successfully documents the decisions and activities related to four aspects (leadership practices, managing stakeholders’ cooperation, operational procedures, and marketing the reputation) used in adapting restaurants in response to COVID-19. It also identifies the barriers to applying the mitigation measures. Though this paper concentrates on Cairo restaurants, the value of this paper lies in being the first managerial-level analytical study documenting the responses to COVID-19 in the restaurant industry. It strengthens the existing literature by …

The aim of this study is to examine a conceptual framework that investigates the role of smart tourism technologies (STTs) in creating memorable tourist experiences (MTEs) through the mediating role of hotel innovations, namely, service/product innovations, marketing innovations, process innovations, and organizational innovations. Data are gathered through on-site surveys directed to foreign and local tourists during their visit and stay at Sharm El Sheikh within the time of the study. Using Smart Partial Least Squares 3.21, a total of 612 questionnaires are investigated by Structure Equation Modeling (PLS-SEM). The results demonstrate that hotel innovations play mediating roles between STTs and MTEs. The study adds to the existing literature by tying STTs to MTE through hotel innovations. The study’s findings have theoretical and practical implications for destinations and hotel businesses through discussing …

The main purpose of this study is to examine guests’ perceptions of COVID-19 safety measures in the Egyptian hotel industry and determine their assessment of such measures implemented in different hotel areas. In addition, it explores the management decisions and preparations for the future to support that safety commitment during the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, an exploratory mixed-method approach was used as the methodology to achieve the study’s objectives. Based on an official checklist for hotel safety procedures released by Egypt's Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, a structured questionnaire was distributed with 446 valid responses being received from hotel guests. The management strategies to support safety commitment were then investigated in a qualitative study based on 35 semi-structured interviews. According to the study findings, guests place great importance on the implementation of safety measures in hotel clinics, guest rooms, and restaurants. However, their evaluation of the optimum safety measures in hotel areas found that restaurants and guest rooms require more severe and active safety measures. It was also emphasized that during times of crisis, hotel managers highlight the role of managerial practices as well as collaboration with governmental stakeholders. Finally, this study concludes with important theoretical contributions and implications for the hotel industry during the pandemic time.

Photography has recently received significant academic interest as a popular tourist activity. However, tourist selfie practises have not yet been thoroughly examined by tourism scholars. This study aimed to investigate tourist selfies storytelling and to determine if tourists'selfies at tourist destinations reveal specific aspects of the host destination, implying an embodiment of particular preferences, intentions, and motivations. In this study, an exploratory analysis employing a two-step qualitative approach was conducted. A semiotic analysis of 317 tourist selfie photos and two phases of in-depth interviews with eleven tourists visiting Egypt on a 7-day packaged tour were used. The findings reveal that tourists prefer to capture host communities’ appearance and attributes in their selfies for different motivations and intentions. Intentions regarding impressions, advertisements, suggestions, and descriptions for these …

Academics have been curious about what motivates pro-environmental behaviour. However, a few research studies have been conducted to analyse and comprehend the pro-environmental behaviour of those in charge of service and production (employees). The COVID-19 outbreak highlighted this topic, emphasising the significance of employees’ pro-environmental behaviours (PEBs) in promoting and maintaining business sustainability. Therefore, this study contributes to the body of knowledge by investigating employees’ PEBs during the COVID-19 pandemic. In-person and online surveys were used to reach the staff of hotels and travel agencies in Egypt’s most popular tourist areas. The quantitative data were analysed with SPSS 25. The results revealed that employees of the tourism and hospitality industry are exceptionally engaged in PEBs in times of the COVID-19 pandemic. Also, the findings indicate that the structure of tourism and hospitality employees’ PEB comprises six factors: operation activities, habits, organisation rules, health, energy-saving, and environment-related activities. However, their behaviour must be guided and improved in three key areas (personal health, organisational rules, and operation activities). According to this study,

The relationship between the humble behavior of leaders and the voluntary workplace green behaviors (VWGB) of their employees is critical to affecting the overall green performance of an organization, particularly in the situation of COVID-19 pandemic. Traditionally, most studies focus more on the importance of leadership effectiveness, but few research studies investigate the leadership approach and its psychological mechanisms that motivate voluntary positive behavior and the efficiency of the overall performance. Thus, the authors conceptualize a research model of humble leadership that investigates the impact of humble leadership on voluntary green behavior and green performance via job autonomy and the green supporting climate. To verify the research hypotheses, 692 online and in-person questionnaires were analyzed using Smartpls-SEM. The results showed a positive association between humble leadership and green performance, and VWGB mediates this relationship. In addition, job autonomy and green supporting climate were confirmed to mediate the association of humble leadership and VWGB; and moderate the relationship of VWGB and green performance, respectively. Notably, this study is one of the few studies in the hotel sector that look at green performance through the lens of humble leadership and VWGB.

Value Stream Mapping (VSM) is a value-based improvement approach that eliminates losses and processing time and maximizes value added time, contributing to enhanced performance effectiveness. In this context, this paper introduces VSM as a different method for restaurant industry and an overall perception for output flow through differentiating wastes, improving cycle time reduction and assessing the value added to the final service. For this purpose, this research follows the qualitative approach to comprehensively investigate the competence of value stream in a Quick-Service Restaurant. This study was based on analyzing and improving the production process of a specific and single product Big Hamburger Meal (BHM) from the classic meals of the case restaurant. The results indicate that implementing VSM principle contributes to operational process enhancement and improvement. The Future State Map indicates an average 20% performance improvement in the critical stages/activities of BHM production. Also, the VSM principles suggest some modifications in six operational activities; negotiation, purchasing, receiving, storing, handling food, and packaging.

In today’s competitive environment, the analysis of activities is not just about looking at the overall report of profit and loss but more in understanding which of the activities add value and which are identified as wastes. This study examines the implementation of Time-Driven Activity-based Costing (TDABC) to analyze the operations of restaurants and also explores its validity as an approach for mapping the value streams of the operational activities. For this purpose, a case study is planned to reprocess both direct and indirect costs of a restaurant using TDABC. Thus, an observation process is performed to gather the relevant data, besides investigating the case restaurant’s cost accounting system. In this paper, two analytical techniques (TDABC & VSM) are combined to identify both the true costs of the operational activities as well as distinguishing the non-value-added activities. The results have revealed that …
