However, ethical violations continue to occur in the course of business operations, prompting academics and professionals to re-evaluate the current state of affairs and devise innovative new approaches to the problem of effectively managing ethics in business organizations.</em> <em>The goal of this study is to assess the most successful means of creating an ethical culture in the workplace for building ethical capital within the greater framework of human resource management practices. </em></p> <p><strong>Design/Methodology/Approach: </strong><em>This is a review paper. Content analysis was done to compare and contrast the existing knowledge and potential practice based on model analysis considering Structure-related, organizational and individual constraints in the workplace. The classroom discussions among professional appearing as Masters scholars having more than 5 years of experience has enlightened the contextual comparison of the theoretical body of knowledge in the study.&nbsp; </em></p> <p><strong>Findings/Result: </strong><em>In light of this, although attempts to market ethics are primarily directed on utilizing and developing clear, documented formal mechanisms, the literature argues that alternative tools are equally important and required to accomplish this goal. Due to the significant impact that HRM ethics and practices are believed to have on staff employees, there has been a recent surge in interest in the study of the role that Human Resource Management (henceforth, HRM) plays in promoting ethical behavior in the workplace through standards, training, and codes. In the workplace, the institutions and interactions all work together to do what's right, even when it's difficult to do the right thing, core values will drive value-creating initiatives. Compliance will keep us out of trouble, but virtuous ethics will produce value for both our co-workers and our organization as a whole.</em></p> <p><strong>Originality/Value: </strong><em>A comprehensive examination of the role that HRM systematically signifies in generating an ethical workplace for the organization.</em></p> <p><strong>Paper Type: </strong><em>Review paper</em></p> A.

Banks and financial institutions are continuously striving to fill this gap with the aid of introducing new payment merchandise and units that would make accessibility to credit less difficult. Historically, formal credit was only restricted to financial products like home, car and private loans, but now it's been shifted to instruments such as credit cards. Credit cards have witnessed big scale issuance and increase in usage. Despite the fact that, traditionally India has been a debit card marketplace, the boom in credit card market has modified this narrative and credit cards have been prominently used in recent times.</em></p> <p><strong>Objective: </strong><em>This paper aims at sectoral analysis of the credit card industry in India by considering top three credit card issuers i.e., HDFC bank, SBI Cards, and ICICI Bank. </em></p> <p><strong>Methodology: </strong><em>In order to study the credit card industry in India, its growth and usage, secondary data from various sources were analysed. A SWOT analysis was conducted to depict the strengths, weakness, opportunities and threats of credit card industry. </em></p> <p><strong>Findings and Conclusion: </strong><em>Sectoral analysis of HDFC, SBI and ICICI bank indicates that usage and growth of credit cards in India has tremendously increased over the years<strong>. </strong>However, India has a long way to go and potential to explore the credit card market. Security issues has always been a concern in the credit card market. Credit cards have proved to be convenient in managing ones expenses, at the same time it needs to be used carefully in order to avoid debt traps, in case of over spending. </em></p> <p><strong>Paper Type: </strong><em>Case Study based research analysis on credit cards industry by highlighting about 3 major credit card issuers i.e., HDFC bank, ICICI Bank and State Bank of India. </em></p> Elroy Monis Ramesh Pai Copyright (c) 2023 https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2023-01-10 2023-01-10 8 1 16 28 10.47992/IJMTS.2581.6012.0252 Tales of Triumph: An Analysis of Famous Transgender Personalities from India https://srinivaspublication.com/journal/index.php/ijmts/article/view/2180 <p><strong>Purpose:</strong> <em>The journey of travelling for authentication of one’s own sexual or gender identity is never a rose paved path before transgender persons, as their journey is beyond or away from established ideologies proposed about gender. Being born with a particular sexual identity but later realizing that the birth sex is not the actual essence of own self is a serious traumatic phase in any transgender life. It is never a pleasant reality for any of the believer of heterosexuality. They can never accept the existence of a varied gender or sexual category apart from one assigned at the time of birth. Thus, transgenders are forced to hide or suppress own identity to get acceptance in a gender binary led society like India. But there are many who were able to triumph in spite of sufferings from the shackles of gender inequality. Their tales are of courage, willpower, and self-reliance held firmly even before whips of harsh gender otherness. Thus, the article titled “Tales of Triumph: An Analysis of Famous Transgender Personalities from India” is an earnest attempt to draw mass attention to such excellent personalities from a suppressed gender group.</em></p> <p><strong>Design:</strong> <em>The article is prepared by collecting information from secondary sources such as peer-reviewed journals and National and International Publications. Internet sources, and research sources like Google Scholar, Research Gate, SSRN, Elsevier, Academia, and Shodhganga are used for identifying the research gap. To highlight the key aspects of the research ABCD analysis is used. Data is acquired from research journals, doctoral theses, scholarly articles, and websites to carry out the research that has been proposed. Concentrating on the keywords Transgender, Transgender in India, Famous Transgender, Excellent Trans Person, Gender Fluidity, Gender Binaries, of the chosen topic, the methodology used depends mostly on collecting, analyzing, and interpreting previous knowledge. The textual analysis and comparative method will be used in the methodology. There will be a close reading of the select works of Transgender writers followed by discussions on related issues. Writing research papers and participating in conferences on the subject are also aimed at. While conducting the analyses of the study, APA Manual has been followed to adhere to its requirements.</em></p> <p><strong>Findings: </strong><em>It has been found out that limited study is available regarding great transgender personalities from India, thus a paper discussing the triumph or victories of such a repressed gender minority in India is very essential for educating public about their achievements.</em></p> <p><strong>Originality:</strong> <em>The proposed study focuses primarily on transgender community in India and their priceless achievements in various realms of human knowledge, thus attempting to create awareness about transgender persons and their victories through various time frames. An awareness created about such a category is highly essential for a heterosexual society to reform their perspectives about third gender in India.</em></p> <p><strong>Paper Type:</strong> <em>Research Article</em></p> Haripriya R.

The trait Grit is closely identified with mindset. Students who believe that their shortcomings result from their fixed mental models, find no use nor reason to attempt again. Individuals with such rigid attitudes are believed to have a fixed mindset. On the contrary, students with a growth mindset are more likely to be resilient and have more grit. On the contrary, individuals who are mentally tough and strong are likely to be considered to have a growth mindset. According to previous research, grit is a question of nature and nurture. People need to build a growth attitude in order to become grittier.</em></p> <p><strong>Design/Methodology/Approach:</strong> <em>More than 100 research papers, articles, and journals were reviewed systematically to identify gaps, identify conflicts in previous studies, and for the purpose of foundation of knowledge on current topic. A systematic review of literature uses a meticulous and transparent methodology for research synthesis, with the aim of evaluating and, where feasible, diminishing bias in the findings. This review is based on careful and systematic scrutinization of the above-mentioned keywords and their combinations thereof. Electronic databases like Google Scholar, Research gate, Academia, Srinivas Publication and Mendeley/Elsevier with open access journals were perused.</em></p> <p><strong>Results/ Findings:</strong> <em>The relevant reviews indicate that people with a higher level of a growth mindset exhibit an equally high level of self-efficacy than pupils who had a more rigid perspective. Several literatures suggest that grit is associated with improved participation and better performance in a school environment. Students with a fixed mindset have a strong notion that their innate intelligence is limited preventing them from reaching their desired goals. This results in a hopeless ‘giving up’ attitude with a deep-rooted fear of failure. Whereas a growth mindset person marches forward with confidence. Their thoughts and beliefs are controlled by them. They understand that every person is brilliant in their own way which can be built, changed, and developed over time with the necessary components of will and effort. Few studies highlight different intervention models to improve fixed mindset of students. Few other studies suggest that practitioners could find a difference in the increase of grit with effective and committed goal</em> <em>settings which eventually would lead to an increased level of mindset in the right direction.&nbsp; </em></p> <p><strong>Originality/Value:</strong> <em>This study is a prequel for the original study on grit, self-efficacy, and mindset modification for the professional success of Industrial Training Institute Students. This intervention-based study has been recommended by few previous studies. In all originality, the experimental study would largely impact the young adults, their cognition and non-cognitive behavior with a developed growth mindset.</em></p> <p><strong>Type of Paper:</strong> <em>Systematic Literature Review-Based Analysis.</em></p> Buvana R.
