The study aims to examine whether companies that are actively disclosing their social responsibility are also behaving ethically in their financial aspect. Specifically, this study investigates whether companies with good social responsibility will also behave responsibly in their taxation aspect by reducing tax avoidance practices. The study is conducted in a developing country, namely the Philippines, where the sample group is obtained from go-public companies listed on the Philippine stock exchange during the 2014-2019 period that published sustainability reports. The results show there is a negative association between corporate social responsibility disclosure with tax avoidance. This shows that corporate tax practice is part of social responsibility actions.</p> Eko Budi Santoso, Kazia Laturette, Stanislaus Adnanto Mastan ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://journalajeba.com/index.php/AJEBA/article/view/30456 Sat, 11 Sep 2021 10:07:59 +0000 Organisational Learning Strategies and Employee Performance in Water and Sewerage Companies: Empirical from Nairobi City County, Kenya https://journalajeba.com/index.php/AJEBA/article/view/30457 <p>Despite organisational learning strategies being focal in enabling employee’s development, Nairobi City Water and Sewerage Company is unable to employ organisational learning strategies for sustainable employee performance.
