It was found that all the factors identified were predictors of employee engagement. The variable such as working environment (r square = 0.223), leadership (R square=0.275), and teamwork and peer support (r square=0.194) have a significant impact on employee engagement. Moreover, employee engagement has no significant impact on employee performance (R square= 0.008).

The contemporary business environment in Benue state, Nigeria demands all Small and Medium Scale Enterprises (SMEs) irrespective of which sector they operate in to innovate in order to secure a place in the market, and Knowledge Management (KM) infrastructure is said to be one of the strategies with which firm innovativeness can be promoted. It is in view of this that this study was conducted to examine the relationship between KM infrastructural capabilities and innovativeness of SMEs in Benue state, Nigeria. The study adopted the survey design. The population for this study consisted of 1370 employees from 14 SMEs in Benue State. The research focused only on SMEs with up to 50 employees. These SMEs were selected from the three business hubs in the state (Makurdi, Gboko and Otukpo) which covers all the geo-political zones of the State. This number cut across business activities like manufacturing, food processing, bakery, table water, schools, hoteling and ICT. Through purposive sampling technique, Five hundred and eighteen (518) employees from the selected SMEs (i.e. 37 from each) made up the sample size for the study. A self-administered-adopted questionnaire was employed to collect quantitative data for hypothesis testing. Five hundred and eighteen (518) questionnaires were issued out to the respondents however, only four hundred and forty five (445) responses validly retrieved and included in analysis. Data were statistically analyzed after being collected from the field with the aid of Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS, v. 21). Pearson Correlation Analysis was employed in determining the relationship between the independent variables (technological, cultural and structural infrastructures) and the dependent variable (SMEs innovativeness). Multiple regression analysis on the other hand tested the extent of effect of independent variables on the dependent variable at 0.05 level of significance. The result of Pearson Correlation Analysis revealed that all the infrastructural dimensions (technology, culture and structure) significantly relate with SMEs Innovativeness. The result of multiple regression analysis showed a higher effect of cultural infrastructural dimension followed by technology and structure with a low effect though positive. Therefore, it is recommended among others that SMEs need to double their support for the use of technological facilities and develop the desired trainings for the operation of technological facilities.

Cross-Border Shopping on Consumer Satisfaction Survey-The Case of COVID-19 was analyzed
Cross-border shopping represents an important concept for online cross-border e-commerce in 2020. We took place in mainland China with the covid-19 in 2019, which led to a large number of consumers buying masks globally. Many consumers will go to other countries to buy medical products such as masks and alcohol through online cross-border means. Consumers' purchase cognition, impulse purchase and illness information all lead to consumers' purchase intention and satisfaction. The public medical event caused consumers to buy masks, alcohol and other medical products in large quantities to prevent the epidemic. The results of this study show that consumers' expected purchase of goods, mainly due to the shortage of masks, indirectly leads to consumers' expected purchase of goods on online foreign e-commerce platforms. We found that consumers' expectations and perceptions lead to impulsive online purchases and ultimately to an understanding of consumer satisfaction.

DOI : 10.36348/sjbms.2020.v05i03.002
Study of dividend policy and stock prices in the capital market has attracted considerable interest in corporate finance literature. Theoretical postulates and empirical evidence from country specific and cross-country studies are divided across lines, as some support the existence of a positive significant implication while others submit entirely negative and non-significant implication on the studied topic. Thus, this paper examines Nigerian context of dividend policy impact on market value of quoted commercial banks with study range of 2004-2018. The study is hinged on the theoretical postulates of dividend relevance theory and Efficient Market Hypothesis (EMH). The study employed model stability test and Error Correction Model (ECM) after determining the stationarity status of the time series data employed in the study, using ADF test, while Johansen Co-integration test was used to predict the existence of two long-run co-integrating relationships among variables. The empirical result reveals a significant dividend policy impact on market value of quoted commercial banks in Nigeria. The study therefore, recommends that Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the established Financial Regulatory council (FRC) to step up regulatory oversight functions to ensure transparency, business ethics and good corporate governance in the banking industry particularly quoted commercial banks in Nigeria, as this will help curtail the anxiety of investors and relatively reduce the practices of declaration of huge paper profits, insider trading, manipulation of stock prices and other nefarious acts.
