Abstract

The objective of this study was to investigate the relationship between employees’ perception of transparency in management and their affective commitment by focusing on four dimensions of management transparency: openness, accountability, integrity and participation. Two independent surveys type studies were conducted to establish the validity of the instrument developed for the purpose, and to empirically examine the hypothesized relationship using 850 randomly selected teachers in Northern Province. Findings revealed that the relationship between employees’ perception of transparency and affective commitment was significantly and strongly correlated. It was also identified that the components of transparency such as openness, accountability integrity and participation explain the variations in affective commitment. The study recommended that a comprehensive strategy needs to be designed to enhance the level of managerial transparency among the Education Authorities.
