Leadership, Integrity, and Accountability: A Look at Workplace Corruption
in the Healthcare Industry of Metro Manila
by Fr. Patrick Z. Falguera, SJ


Whether it be in the public or private sector, the prevalence of corruption
limits the ability of an organization to perform its essential functions.
Although corrupt behavior initially starts at the individual level,
repeated imitations leading to seemingly positive outcomes result in its
institutionalization.  Both leadership and accountability play crucial
roles in this process. On one hand, top management can send a strong
message to what is acceptable behavior in the organization, while on the
other hand, personal accountability practiced by rank and file employees
plays an important role in shaping organizational culture. Integrity as a
value displayed by the leader and follower thus becomes key in how
corruption has become prevalent in the workplace. This paper is thus an
attempt to look at integrity as a core value contextualized and
operationalized in the workplace. Concretely, it focuses on corruption as
practiced in the healthcare industry, particularly the hospital sector as
situated in Metro Manila. Using a qualitative lens, this study addresses
challenges and issues raised by corruption and how integrity plays a
strategic role in shaping leadership and accountability.

Social Accountability and the Role of the Modern Bureaucrat as
by Mr. Eduardo Carlos Q. Orbeta


The search for a new paradigm of bureaucratic governance has risen in
relevance and prominence in parallel with the increasing complexity of
society. From a rigid, hierarchical systems view, our perception of the
“ideal” government has shifted to include more “modern” concepts that lend
a greater deal of internal flexibility for bureaucratic managers.
Meanwhile, with the increase in democratic fervor that has accompanied the
onset of the digital age, governments also face mounting pressure to
improve the extent, quality, and integrity of external interface with
constituents. This paper is an attempt to contextualize the enigma of
modern-day public management, in terms the increasing need for government
accountability and performance.  Using the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas as a
case study, discourse analysis and other qualitative techniques are used to
crystallize the implications these new dimensions impose upon internal
government systems, and the bureaucrats that run them.  With this, the
study hopes to stimulate discussion on how leaders and managers engage the
daily task of bringing forth bureaucracies that are fully accountable to
citizens and constituents.
