Measurement and structural properties of organizational codes of ethics in private and public Sweden
Svensson, Goran, Wood, Greg and Callaghan, Michael 2010, Measurement and structural properties of organizational codes of ethics in private and public Sweden, International journal of public sector management, vol. 23, no. 6, pp. 549-566, doi: 10.1108/09513551011069022.
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to test the measurement and structural properties in a model of organizational codes of ethics (OCE) in Sweden.
Design/methodology/approach – The measurement and structural properties of four OCE constructs (i.e. surveillance/training, internal communication, external communication, and guidance) were described and tested in a dual sample based upon private and public sectors of Sweden.
Findings – Results show that the measurement and structural models of OCE in part have a satisfactory fit, validity, and reliability.
Research limitations/implications – The paper makes a contribution to theory as it outlines a set of OCE constructs and it presents an empirical test of and OCE model in respect to measurement and structural properties. A number of research limitations are provided. Practical implications – It provides a model to be considered in the implementation and monitoring of OCE. The present research provides opportunities for further research in refining, extending, and testing the proposed OCE model in other cultural and organizational settings.
Originality/value – The OCE model extends previous studies that have been predominately descriptive, by using confirmatory factor analysis and structural equation modeling.
