- The existence of substantial difference at the level of significance (α = 0,05) between the employees of short experiences (less than five years) and those with long experiences was, for the benefit of the employees of short experiences, while the existence of substantial differences did not appear in the scale of organizational culture due to the organizational culture of the two variables of study: gender and qualification.
- The existence of substantial difference between employees with short experiences and their counterparts with long experiences was for the benefit of the employees with short experiences in the ethical scale of managerial decisions, that is, employees of short experiences showed their views more positively than their counterparts with long experiences with respect to the ethics of their administrative decisions in their organizations in general, and to their perception of justice in particular.
