Abstract

Present study aims to examine the role of perceived fear of retaliation and value orientations (individualism, collectivism, idealism, and relativism) on whistleblowing intentions (both internal and external). Sample used in the present study consists of 237 executive MBA students from two leading Indian business schools. According to the results of paired sample t test, respondents reported significantly higher internal whistleblowing intentions than external whistleblowing intentions. Results also indicate that there is a significant inverse relationship between fear of bad consequences on job and whistleblowing intentions (both internal and external). Also, fear of bad consequences for the company is positively correlated with internal whistleblowing intentions. Lastly, collectivism is also found to be positively related with internal whistleblowing intentions. Limitations and implications of the findings were also discussed.
