It discusses the various definitions of speciality coffee as well as tracing the journey of coffee from beans to cups. Specialty coffee is important as it is a rapidly expanding segment within the coffee market. Nowadays, beyond consuming coffee as a common means of caffeinating, a significant number of coffee drinkers seek new experiences of coffee taste and appreciate stories behind the coffee they consume. The term speciality coffee refers to the quality of the final cup as well as the transparency and the dedication of people involved in every link of the coffee supply chain. In turn, the price of speciality coffee is significantly higher than coffee in general. Coffee producers could generate higher income from speciality coffee which improves their economic standing. For coffee drinkers, they would enjoy the exquisite flavors while appreciating the story that accompanies each cup. This book contains a comprehensive spectrum, covering details from coffee cultivation to the art of consumption. It caters to both coffee producers seeking knowledge about specialty coffee and coffee drinkers eager to expand their understanding of this coffee segment.</p> 2023-12-15T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Management Sciences Suratthani Rajabhat University https://so03.tci-thaijo.org/index.php/msj/article/view/270346 Household Energy Requirements and CO2 Emissions In Thailand 2023-08-23T11:33:49+07:00 Onicha Meangbua [email protected] <p>This study employs energy input-output and structural decomposition analyses (SDA) to assess the overall role of economy-wide household consumption on energy-related CO<sub>2</sub> emissions in Thailand. Over the 1995-2015 period, findings indicate that household energy requirements and associated CO<sub>2</sub> emissions, constituted the second-largest contributor to emissions in Thailand, trailing only the export sector and there was a trend of continuously increase throughout the study period. The research considered the factors driving change using the SDA method through 3 driving factors: 1) Intensity Effect 2) Leontief Effect and 3) Final Demand Effect. It was found that the final demand effect, representing the economic context, was the primary driver of changes in energy-linked emissions (83.34%) in Thai households from 1990 to 2015. The Leontief effect (11.37%) and energy intensity effect (5.29%) also contributed to increased energy demand. Notably, the final demand effect was a significant factor in raising CO<sub>2</sub> emissions in Thai households. While technological advancements and intensity improvements reduced household CO<sub>2</sub> emissions, they were insufficient to counterbalance the emissions driven by final demand. In summary, this study underscores the crucial role of household consumption in driving energy-linked emissions in Thailand. It highlights the need for targeted policies to align consumption patterns with sustainability objectives and leverage technology for effective household carbon emissions reduction.</p> 2023-12-15T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Management Sciences Suratthani Rajabhat University https://so03.tci-thaijo.org/index.php/msj/article/view/259474 Leave-Taking Human Resource Management System: A Case Study of Banpru Town Municipality 2023-02-10T16:30:33+07:00 Jatuporn Jirundorn [email protected] <p>This research used technology to develop a human resources management system for Banpru City Municipality.

Therefore, this academic article was aimed to create intensive impressions for tourists who use services of hotels and resorts with the availability of a Halal system in the modern living and that the impressive feeling is strong enough to repeat their travel, without the thought of using the competitors' business. The result of global Muslim tourism index <span lang="TH">2018</span> shows that, for Muslim tourists, the popularity of Thailand ranks second among non-Muslim countries. In order to maintain their customers, hotels and resources need to have attractive strategies which can be comprised of: 1<span lang="TH">) </span>creating the features of customer relations towards the business; 2<span lang="TH">) </span>building positive customer experience; and 3<span lang="TH">) </span>constructing quality of service. The purpose of these strategies is not only a constant long term benefit for the hospitality business but also a cost reduction in the operation as well as the marketing. Maintaining the customers by offering Halal system in hotels and resorts makes the system become one of the highlights in the country tourism industry that, subsequently, the government has added to its policy to make Thailand the center of Halal service, not only in the Asian region but also the globe. Thus, the task of customer retention is important for hotels and resources with an availability of Halal system to sustainably grow. </span></p> 2023-12-15T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Management Sciences Suratthani Rajabhat University https://so03.tci-thaijo.org/index.php/msj/article/view/264740 Workation: Definition, Characteristics And Perspective Of Opportunity And Challenge In Thailand 2023-02-02T16:21:13+07:00 Paramet Damchoo [email protected] Theephob Khueanmueang [email protected] Thiticha Dee-aim [email protected] <p>Workation is a group of tourists who do remote work. There is an increasing number after the coronavirus crisis. The group travels to tourist destinations for work and leisure at the same time. Workation is helping to create a work life balance and wellbeing. The benefit to the organization is loyalty, increased employee engagement, helping retain talented employees and increasing work efficiency. Resignation and absenteeism decreased. However, workation is similar in characteristics to digital nomad tourists. The purpose of this article is to study the meaning of Workation, differences between Workation and Digital Nomads, Components of Workation, analyze opportunities and challenges of Workation in Thailand and suggestions for Workation. The analysis in the article found that there are 8 types of differences between workation and digital nomad, which are: 1) Length of time to work off-site; 2) After active workation; 3) working style; 4) purpose of travel; 5) Destination characteristics; 6) Work environment; 7) flexibility of work; and 8) Post Trip.. The components of Workation are divided into 5 components as follows: 1) Employee, 2) Employer, 3) Internet systems and information systems; 4) Co-Working space; and 5) Accommodation. Thailand is a country with opportunities and challenges to develop into a destination for workation. Relevant government organisations must adjust to accommodate this group of tourists. The government should issue policies to promote workation, develop internet networks construction, provide accommodations with remote-working features, and offer transportation services from hotels and facilities such as co-working space.</p> 2023-12-15T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Management Sciences Suratthani Rajabhat University https://so03.tci-thaijo.org/index.php/msj/article/view/273858 COVER 2023-12-14T15:50:08+07:00 Journal of Management Science Suratthani Rajabhat University [email protected] 2023-12-15T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2023 https://so03.tci-thaijo.org/index.php/msj/article/view/273859 Contents 2023-12-14T15:54:51+07:00 Journal of Management Science Suratthani Rajabhat University [email protected] 2023-12-15T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2023 https://so03.tci-thaijo.org/index.php/msj/article/view/273860 EDITORIAL 2023-12-14T15:57:18+07:00 Journal of Management Science Suratthani Rajabhat University [email protected] 2023-12-15T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2023
