Conducting Research in Organizations on Ethical Matters While Focusing On Challenges, Issues and Other Aspects


Series: Ethical Issues in the 21st Century
BISAC: BUS008000

There are many challenges in conducting quantitative research and examining these challenges can be helpful to select the best quantitative research strategy. Selecting an appropriate survey strategy for research on the relationship between job satisfaction and organizational commitment can be dependent on organizational environments, participants’ professional levels, and demographic criteria. Therefore, randomly selecting a survey strategy may not be the best approach.

Effective organizational management in the current economic climate seems challenging with ethical, global, technological and other geopolitical issues. An analysis of studies that address the factors influencing employee commitment and an evaluation of the connection between employee commitment and performance are done based on a review of the applied scholarly literature.

Three classical theories of ethics (utilitarian, virtue ethics, and ethics of rights) can be compared and contrasted, both from originality and in the current economic climate. Similarities and differences between these theories of ethics can be based on criteria such as focus, justice, categories, premise, the moral point of view, and enforcing moral rules and issues with measurement. This book addresses these developments and challenges as well as other issues in conducting research in organizations on ethical matters. (Imprint: Nova)

“Rashid succinctly analyzes the challenges that scholars and researchers face in conducting quantitative survey research. He critically probes the ethical theories and leadership problems behind such surveys and suggests concrete solutions to improve the perceived problems. He uses the available resources in the field to analyze those inadequacies. While he benefits from others and critically debates their thoughts, he offers his own suggestions without condemning the valuable works of his predecessors. Rashid’s research is a ground-breaking work in the field. Definitely, researchers, graduate and undergraduate students will benefit from this research. They will find in it a useful tool of analyzing and re-evaluating the quantitative survey research which will guarantee job satisfaction especially in this modern day of advanced communication technology. Rashid should be credited for utilizing simple common language, free of academic jargons, in conveying his ideas to the general readers of his work.” – Dr. Yushau Sodiq, Associate Professor, Texas Christian University, Texas
