Moderating Effect of Institutional Size: Empirical Evidence from Kenyan Public Health Sector (Published)
This research paper aims to establish if institutional size moderates the relationship between corporate governance and health workforce performance in the Kenyan public health sector. A cross-sectional descriptive survey was used to collect data from 365 respondents from top management, middle management, officers (supervisors) and lower cadre employees. A survey questionnaire was used for quantitative data collection and moderated multiple regression analysis was used to test the hypothesis. The results show that institutional size (number of employees) did not significantly moderate the relationship between corporate governance and health workforce performance. From the findings, regardless of their sizes, all institutions require common management skills since organizations are usually managed in a way that suits their size. Therefore, those responsible for institutional corporate governance should not base decisions of management systems on the size of their institutions. Using statistical methods, this paper significantly contributes to the dearth literature on the effect of institutional size in the relationship between corporate governance and health workforce performance in Kenyan public health sector.
