Abstract

This study aims to investigate the perceptions of health employees on organizational cronyism and employee performance, and to reveal the impact of organizational cronyism perceptions on employee performance. Survey was applied to all health employees who wanted to participate in a public hospital in Antalya province, and 316 available surveys were obtained in the study. It was determined that health employees' perceptions of organizational cronyism were moderate and perceptions of employee performance were high. It was determined that the process chronism showed a statistically significant difference according to the working time in current hospital; cronyism in promotion showed a statistically significant difference according to education, position at hospital and working time in current hospital; cronyism in the recruitment process showed a statistically significant difference according to the gender and working time in current hospital (p<0.05). It was identified that employee performance was statistically significant according to age, education level, position in hospital and working time in current hospital (p<0.05). Also, it was determined that the participants' perceptions of organizational cronyism (transaction cronyism, promotion cronyism and cronyism in the recruitment process) decreased statistically the perceptions of employee performance. For this reason, the reduction of organizational cronyism perception will be beneficial both for health institutions and for health employees.
