Abstract:

The research problem stems from the fact that there is no exploration of the prejudice phenomenon in the Arab Administrative Environment, resulting in a lack of understanding of this phenomenon, as well as not to develop administrative capabilities to deal with it effectively. This may lead to escalate the prejudice problem and increase its negative effects on the efficiency, effectiveness and quality management in contemporary organizations. The research problem has been precisely formulated as following: What is the nature of prejudice in the investigated organization (a Saudi Arabian university) and what are the most prominent causes, treatments and implications, according to the opinions of its employees?. The key aim of the study is to contribute to gain a deeper understanding of the prejudice phenomenon, from a managerial perspective; through exploring some of its dimensions in Arab administrative organizations in general, and Saudi Arabian administrative organizations in particular. The importance of the study is in its empirical contribution via bridging a part of the gap in the literature, specifically in the field of organizational behavior. This study employed a mixed or hybrid research, using qualitative and quantitative approaches. In the quantitative research, the sample was 929 male and female students. In the qualitative research, eleven semi-structured interviews were conducted. The study indicated the existence of the prejudice phenomenon in the organization examined in various forms. Such a finding confirmed the significance of not underestimating the existence of the phenomenon in order to avoid, as possible, its negative effects in organizations. Therefore, the study highlighted the need to address this phenomenon in a scientific manner and to include it within the agenda of research in management, to develop a comprehensive treatment of the prejudice disease and to reduce it institutionally and systematically from a managerial perspective.
