PELS were screened for univariate and multivariate outli-

value of 29.6 (p .001), eight multivariate outliers were
detected; these cases were excluded from the subsequent
factor and reliability analyses (resulting n=293). In
addition, the scaled variables were also examined for uni-

The variables that were used to be hypothesized would be related differentially to PELs at the top level of the organization/company. The different variables that were used in this article as it relates to Table 2: time, financial resources, ethics code awareness, decision making information.
