An Ethical Leader and Integrity System in Government-Related Company: Evidence from Malaysia

Integrity is a subject that is currently receiving increasing attention in Malaysia. Malaysia was ranked as the sixty-second least corrupt nation in the world by Transparency International’s Corruption Perceptions Index in 2021. Therefore, altering the public’s unfavourable impression of Malaysia’s integrity system is the responsibility of both the public and commercial sectors in Malaysia. Since the leader is the most crucial person in the organisation, this study looks at how well leaders in companies that work with the government carry out the integrity system. This study’s objective is to examine Malaysia’s corporate integrity procedures. It focuses on how the integrity of leaders influences the integrity of the business. Using a five-point Likert scale and surveys of Malaysian GRC executives and managers, we gathered data. Based on respondents’ assessments of the leadership components of integrity, data was obtained. Our findings indicated that the GRCs had a sound corporate integrity policy. The need of moral leadership in maintaining the business’ integrity system was finally shown. In the end, the research is anticipated to offer evidence to decision-makers to assist them in putting into practise their strategic plan to restore Malaysia’s excellent reputation in the international community.
