Agus Susanto
Abstract       pdf Full text PDF

The purpose of this study was to analyze the relationship between job insecurity and factory employee turnover intention, job insecurity on organizational commitment and organizational commitment on factory employee turnover intention. This study applies a quantitative method. Data collection was carried out using the method of observation and distributing questionnaires. The object of this research is factory employees. The sampling technique is accidental sampling. The sample used in this study amounted to 230 employees. The results of data management in this study were supported by smartPLS software and analyzed using Structural Equation Modeling (SEM). Research data was obtained by distributing online questionnaires via social media with a calculation model using a Likert Scale 1-5. The results of this study can be concluded that job insecurity has a significant positive effect on turnover intention. This problem proves that the insecurity at work felt by employees is high to the point that factory employees' intention to leave is also very high. Job insecurity has a negative and insignificant effect on organizational commitment. Organizational commitment has a significant negative effect on turnover intention. Organizational commitment cannot mediate the effect of job insecurity on turnover intention. This means that organizational commitment cannot be an intervening variable between job insecurity and turnover intention. This research has been able to build a theoretical model about the values contained in job insecurity in relation to turnover intensity. The relationship between the three research variables that can be described from the results of the analysis of the closeness of the relationship between each variable has a relationship with other variables. Job insecurity and turnover intentions have a strong, unidirectional and significant degree of affinity. Then job stress and turnover intention have a strong level of closeness, unidirectional and significant relationship. Each variable independently has a symmetrical relationship. The results of this study have implications that can provide an overview of the references used in this study

Ali-CECO” (Embossed Writing in the Food Industry)
Claudia Möller Recondo, Fátima Arquero Gutiérrez, Marina Plaza Arranz
Abstract       pdf Full text PDF

For most people, it is difficult to do something as simple as “choosing” a product from a supermarket shelf when it is full of different typefaces. This situation is even more difficult for those people who have a disability or some kind of physical limitation. In search for a solution, the inclusive packaging paradigm has arisen. In this context, fourteen visually-impaired people (with a residual vision of 3-8%) were studied in a research work carried out in Valladolid (Spain) using a co-laboratory methodology. This research’s point of departure emerged as a concrete need: in Europe’s food industry —and in Spain’s, specifically—, there is an absolute lack of devices that enable blind people to buy commodities in a safe and autonomous manner. The results of this study are presented in this paper. The proposal herein is to include Braille in the caps of milk cartons (or bottles of water, oil or juice, or in any container with a lid) in order to differentiate this product from others with a similar format, and to identify the properties of the food it contains. In this case, the prototype is a plastic, round, recycled “tethered cap” with embossed writing to identify the product and a notch to indicate the direction of the writing so that it is easier to read. The following acronyms are also included: LA for lactose, GL for gluten and FS for nuts.
