    ABSTRACT: Using an interactionist approach, this study examined the effects of the general self-efficacy (GSE) and the organizational socialization inventory (OSI) domains, as well as the GSE × OSI domains on tourism and hospitality organizations' success—newcomer perceived general job satisfaction (GJS) and intent to return (ITR)—in socializing their intern newcomers. The sample included 352 senior tourism and hospitality undergraduates from two institutions of higher education in tourism and hospitality in China's Hainan Island who just experienced organizational socialization in their respective placement organizations. Results indicated that intern newcomers' GJS and ITR can be significantly predicted by GSE and all OSI domains, respectively; that GJS can be incrementally explained by all the interactions between GSE and the four OSI domains, except for the GSE × OSI_training; and that ITR can be incrementally explained by the interactions of GSE × OSI_training and GSE × OSI_future prospect. The study's findings as well as their theoretical and practical implications are discussed within the context of organizational socialization research, GSE-related social cognitive career theory and core self-evaluation theory, and human resource development practices in tourism and hospitality organizations.

    ABSTRACT: The aims of this article are to analyze the determinants of educational mismatch and worker mobility across occupations and firms in the hospitality industry. The educational mismatch is measured comparing the worker’s maximum level of attained education and the educational level needed to perform his or her job. A representative survey of 3,314 employees and 302 employers in 181 hotels and 121 restaurants with 8 employees or more was utilized to this end. The econometric analyses suggest that workers can compensate for their shortfall in education with greater amounts of working experience; however, surplus education cannot substitute for tenure and on-the-job training. Likewise, educational mismatch has no impact on labor mobility. However, other factors influence internal and external turnover.

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this article is to determine the factors that influence the outsourcing of leisure services in the hotel business. First, this work studies the relationship between the specificity of the hotel leisure activity and the activity’s performance depending on whether it is outsourced or retained in house. Second, the article analyzes the extent to which the perceived advantages can extend the strategy of outsourcing hotel leisure services. Third, the work analyzes the influence of outsourcing hotel leisure services on organizational performance. The results obtained indicate that there is a positive relationship between specificity and performance of the activity when it is carried out in house. They also show that the advantages that give this strategy greater potential for further use are related to greater concentration on core competences. On the other hand, it was shown that hotels that have outsourced leisure services have better organizational performance, especially nonfinancial.
