dc.description.abstract Humans of all shapes, sizes, creeds, nationalities, orientations, religions, and positions yearn for fairness and equality for themselves and their families. Employees also want the same justice within organisations. Prolific organisational behaviour researchers Jason Colquitt and Jessica Rodell delineate the social science studies over the past 35 years in the field of justice within institutions. Organisational justice takes many forms, as detailed over the past several years in Business Talk here in the Business Daily. Fairness within firms can be procedural fairness in processes, fairness in how outcomes are distributed, interpersonal respect and propriety from superiors, and informational truthfulness and justification in communications from executives. Exciting new research from the United States International University of Africa in collaboration with Durham University in the UK, Global Communities in Kenya and in Washington, D.C., and USAid, surveyed 580 individuals in 19 agricultural co-operatives in 12 Kenyan counties and is being showcased in the Business Daily this month. The study endeavoured to understand, among many other objectives, the role that informational and interpersonal justice plays in co-operatives to garnish favourable institutional and community outcomes. Unlike in employee situations which has been studied before in Kenya, no known research has ever looked at justice and fairness in member-based organisations in East Africa. en_US
