The study aimed to investigate the impact of employee engagement on performance at a South African pump supplier. The research adopted a qualitative study and a non-probability purposeful sampling technique with a target population of ten employees at the company. It examined the factors that contributed to the development of employees’ engagement and the effect of engagement on employee performance. The research instrument used interview and was analyzed qualitatively. Key findings revealed that the employees at the company are disengaged due to ineffective leadership, poor communication between management and employees, lack of a recognition system, inadequate employee participation in decision-making, and an absence of a strategic and coordinated approach to the employees’ well-being. Recommendations were that the organization should allow its workforce to provide input in the decision-making of the organization, improve effective and transparent internal communication, employee development and empowerment, and an effective recognition system. Leaders should support the effective utilization of employee skills and capabilities. The study showed that there is a relationship between employee engagement and performance due to the lack of employee engagement that lowered employee capability and affected the organization's bottom line. Designing and implementing an effective employee engagement strategy is, therefore, desirable to the employee and organizational performance.

Water pollution is a change condition in a water reservoir such as lakes, rivers, oceans, and groundwater due to human activities. This pollution causes many aquatic organisms to die and causes various diseases. Based on these problems, a solution is needed to deal with water pollution. The solution was given in the manufacture of a simple water purifier that can be used at home, namely the Frufous water purifier system. The method used in this research was research and development (R & D) with a level of difficulty at level 1, namely researching without testing the product. The product was researched and developed as an alternative water filter by applying the Frufous system (From Us For Us). Validation of this product was carried out internally in a Focus Group Discussion (FGD). The product had been repaired according to the judgment and suggestions of expert and practitioner opinions. The product design had been declared internally tested. The results of this research and product development showed products that are original, functional, complex, and authentic. The Frufous water purifier system was complex so that it could filter dirty water into clean and clear water, compared to being untreated/filtered. This research was expected to be used as an inspiration for research ideas to be applied at an advanced level of difficulty, which can be tested externally and applied en masse.

Dendrobium spectabile orchid is an ornamental plant of high economic value, having relatively durable properties, beauty, and attractiveness of orchids lie in the diverse shapes and colors of the flowers. Therefore, it requires rapid and efficient propagation techniques. One of them is in-vitro vegetative propagation. Plant propagation using the in-vitro technique has the opportunity to produce a large number of plant seeds in a relatively short time. This study aims to determine the correct concentration of Benzyl Amino Purine (BAP) on the growth amount of the explants of Dendrobium spectabile orchid by in-vitro. The research was conducted at the Biotechnology Laboratory of the Regional Technical Implementation Unit (UPTD) of the Aloe Vera Center (AVC) Pontianak. This research was conducted from January 1, 2020, to March 30, 2020. The method used was a Completely Randomized Design (CRD). The treatment consisted of 6 levels of treatment, namely b1 = 0.75 ppm, b2 = 1.00 ppm, b3 = 1.25 ppm, b4 = 1.50 ppm, b5 = 1.75 ppm, b6 = 2.00 ppm. All treatments were repeated 4 times for each treatment consisting of 3 plant samples. The research finding showed that the treatment of BAP concentration 1.50 was the best in increasing the average number of leaves 4.92 strands, the average number of shoots 4.25 buds, and the average leaf length was 2.44 cm.
