Transparency and accountability to reduce administrative corruption in non-governmental social welfare institutions in Palestinian society from the perspective of employees working in West Bank institutions
The current study aimed to emphasize the importance of the commitment of individuals, especially employees, to work ethics and clarifying its role in combating administrative corruption in non-governmental social welfare institutions in Palestine from the perspective of employees, which emerged due to the living situation that Palestinian society suffers from. The focus of this study was on the phenomenon of administrative corruption in social welfare institutions because of its negative consequences that lead to the deterioration of principles and ethics. A random sample of 190 employees of non-governmental social welfare institutions in the West Bank in the Palestinian community was selected. The researcher used a questionnaire for data collection, which included two parts: the first part consisted of independent variables, and the second part included the depended variables (transparency, accountability, organizational changes, and organizational control). The results of this study revealed that the variable years of experience gained by employees did not raise awareness about transparency and responsibility in social welfare institutions. This indicated the lack of interest of senior management in monitoring and developing employees, in addition to the lack of interest of experienced employees in developing themselves.
