Wednesday, April 3, 2024

Researcher Raneem Mahmoud Abu Ain, a student in the Master’s Program in Strategic Planning and Fundraising has defended her thesis titled "The Importance of Business Ethics and Corporate Social Reasonability for Company Growth: Evidence from Palestinian Listed Firms".

This study aimed to determine the impact of work ethics and social responsibility on growth in Palestinian banks. This study used the descriptive analytical method by distributing 370 questionnaires to employees in Palestinian banks.

The researcher found that there is a great commitment by bank employees to work ethics and practicing social responsibility. The study also revealed that social responsibility towards society, customers, employees and people related to the bank has a positive impact on the growth and development of banks, in addition to the positive role of work ethics.

The research concluded that there are no statistically significant differences between the respondents’ opinions regarding work ethics and social responsibility due to the variables of gender, educational qualification, experience, and type of bank. The study recommended the necessity of banks disclosing the social responsibility report to the concerned persons because of its role in achieving competitive advantage, improving financial performance and sustainable development of Palestinian banks. In addition, there is a continuous interest in increasing awareness of commitment to work ethics and the rules of professional conduct and the positive impact they reflect on increasing work spirit and development in Palestinian banks.

The thesis was supervised by Dr. Mohammad Abusharbeh. The committee of examiners included Dr. Abeer Istanbouli and Dr. Ahmed Sadaqa.
