Moreover, Stratified and simple random sampling techniques were respectively applied to select a sample of 157 staff members. From these 157 respondents, only 151 samples were used to collect the data (i.e. 96 %) of the respondents participated in the study. The data were collected through questionnaires and document analysis. The data obtained from respondents were analyzed using descriptive statistics and multiple linear regression analysis via SPSS version 20.0 soft ware.
