QUESTIONNAIRE FOR DETERMINING STAFF TOLERANCE FOR CORRUPTION

 

1.       Do you think that a situation is common in the organisation, when the staff is offered additional rewards? *

a.      Yes;

b.      No;

c.      I cannot say (I do not know).

 

 

2.      Have you ever been in a situation when you were offered a bribe? **

a.      Yes;

b.      No.

 

 

3.      If the answer is yes:

4.      Have you informed the management (or law enforcement authorities) about the bribe you have been offered?

a.      Yes;

b.      No.

 

 

5.     If the answer is no:

6.      Would you inform the management (or law enforcement authorities) about cases of corruption?

a.      Yes;

b.      No;

c.      I cannot say (I do not know).

 

 

* Question 1 of the Questionnaire may be intended not only for  the staff of an organisation, but also for  business partners, clients, and  it reflects the prevalence of corruption within the organisation concerned.

 

** Question 2 reflects the experience of the staff of an organisation, when they are offered an illegal reward.

 

Questions 3 and 4 reflect the staff  tolerance for corruption. By adding up to a total all “NO” answers of respondents who answered  Questions 3 and 4, and estimating  its percentage of the total number of respondents, we would  obtain the percentage score reflecting the degree of tolerance for corruption in the organisation.

 

For example, a total of 200 completed questionnaires was received; 22 employees answered “NO” to Question 3, 28 employees answered “NO” to Question 4. It means that a total of 50 respondents, without reporting on corruption, tolerates this phenomenon; and this accounts for 25% of total number of respondents and makes up 25 points in a 100-point scoring system, where  the higher the score, the higher level of  tolerance for corruption.
