This paper provides a review of D. J. Prottas' 2008 article, "Perceived Behavioral Integrity: Relationships with Employee Attitudes, Well-Being, and Absenteeism." The paper explains that the study, using purely quantifiable methodology, attempts to examine the connection between managerial integrity and various employee attitudes and perceptions, and how these aspects impact and affect business. The paper acknowledges the complexity of an analysis of perceptual and attitudinal values, and questions whether purely quantifiable methodology is adequate to deal with this range of variables in an attitudinal, perceptual and causal understanding of perceived behavioral integrity (PBI). The paper goes on to cover the sample base, demographic variables, methodology, and statistical analysis of the study, and concludes that qualitative methodologies and research models could provide insight into and contribute value to this area of research.
From the Paper:"The methodology and statistical analysis was sound and processed a range of results that mainly echoed those of previous studies; namely that good ethics is "also good business" in relation to various important areas of employee concern. Therefore, the statistical data did show a positive correlation between PBI and certain consistent variables, such as job satisfaction and life satisfaction and was found to be negatively correlated to stress, poor health and absenteeism. However, the second hypothesis was not proven and gender differences in the perception of integrity as postulated in this hypothesis, was not substantiated by the data and analysis."
