1. Mujasi, Paschal Nicholas. Practices, motivation, perceived benefits and barriers to outsourcing by hospitals in Uganda.

Degree: 2016, University of South Africa

This study investigated practices, motivations, perceived benefits and barriers to outsourcing of support services by general hospitals in Uganda. The aim was to contribute to the evidence base to increase adoption and effectiveness of outsourcing by hospitals in Uganda. An explanatory sequential mixed methods design was used. Quantitative data was collected from hospital managers in 32 randomly selected hospitals using a self-administered questionnaire. Qualitative data was collected through in-depth interviews from 8 purposively selected hospital managers using an interview guide. Quantitative data was statistical analysed (frequencies, contingency tables and Wilcoxon-Mann-Whitney tests) using SAS 9.3. Qualitative data was managed using ATLAS ti 7, coded manually and content analysis conducted to identify emerging themes, subthemes and categories. A cost benefit analysis was conducted for outsourcing cleaning services in a selected hospital using financial data provided by the managers. Quantitative findings indicate that many (72%) hospitals were outsourcing some of their support services; many were satisfied with their outsourcing (>60%). The key motivation for outsourcing was to gain access to quality service (68%). Most hospitals have a system for monitoring outsourcing (71%). Managers perceive improved productivity and better services as the main benefit from outsourcing (90%). The main barrier to outsourcing is limited financing. A key challenge encountered during outsourcing was limited number of service providers (57%). Managers perceive regulatory violations as a key risk during outsourcing (87%). Hospital location is a determinant of outsourcing (p=0.0033). Managers’ perceptions towards outsourcing have no impact on outsourcing (p>0.05). These findings were confirmed and explained by the qualitative data. Qualitative findings reveal masquerading, impersonation and extortion of patients by outsourced staff as an outsourcing risk. They reveal a concern that outsourcing may lead to job loss for community members. The cost benefit analysis indicates that outsourcing in the studied hospital for the year considered was cheaper than insourcing by UGX 669,575.00. The savings increase to UGX 48,753,689.94 when adjusted for quality differences between insourced and outsourced services. Sensitivity analysis shows that the assumptions used in the analysis were robust. Recommendations, interventions and guidelines are proposed for increasing outsourcing and its effectiveness. Advisors/Committee Members: Nkosi, Zinhle (advisor).

Neste sentido, foi realizada uma abordagem teórica à evolução da GRH e identificadas as práticas de GRH, capazes de reconhecer nas pessoas um recurso determinante no sucesso organizacional. O presente estudo caracteriza as práticas de GRH desenvolvidas pelas empresas da nossa amostra; o grau de intervenção do departamento de recursos humanos no desenvolvimento dessas práticas. Simultaneamente, é apresentada a caracterização das empresas e do departamento de RH. A uma amostra de 40 empresas foi aplicado um inquérito por questionário que permitiu concluir que (1) as práticas mais desenvolvidas são a contratação e as práticas de remuneração direta ou económica; (2) na maioria das práticas de GRH desenvolvidas, o DRH tem um elevado grau de intervenção no desenvolvimento e implementação das práticas de GRH; (3) os responsáveis de RH não possuem formação específica na área de GRH.

This study aims to characterize the existing HRM practices in large enterprises operating in the city of Praia.

The study characterizes HRM practices developed by the enterprises in our sample; the level of intervention of the human resource department in the development of these practices. Simultaneously, we present the characterization of the enterprises and the HR department. A survey was applied to 40 enterprises of our sample which permits us to conclude that (1) the most developed practices are the hiring processes and the direct or economic compensation practices; (2) in most of the HRM practices developed, the HRM has a high level of intervention in the development and implementation of HRM practices; (3) the HR leaders lack training in HRM field.
