Research Highlights :

Dr. Vinodan is actively involved in experiential research focusing on the service sector and sustainability. In his recent research, the research on technology and innovations among small and marginalized enterprises is covered, and the entrepreneurship development possibilities are explored with social vision and orientation. The institutional effectiveness and quality management of grass-roots institutions are studied in terms of their sustainability and quality orientations. A special focus on individual centric market orientation, hitherto unexplored among marginalised entrepreneurs, found relevance in the SDG era. Besides human resource management, supporting skill and capacity building and supplementing better ESG practises are contemporary topics of research. The microfinance models and applications in tune with the SDG gained attention. He will be focusing on quality and sustainability measurement to strengthen his contributions to ESG and the SDGs.
