Scholars and practitioners are paying increased attention to the concept of organizational conscience as it leads to positive outcomes in organizational life. Despite this increase, there is a gap measuring the perception of organizational conscience. To fill this gap, this study aims to develop a scale which measures the perception of organizational conscience. For this purpose, it uses a methodological approach with three steps which are item generation, scale purification and scale development. A special focus on developing a scale to measure organizational conscience using both qualitative and quantitative methods through data obtained from 239 service employees. As a consequence, a six-dimensional scale containing twenty seven items developed distinctive dimensions of organizational conscience: humanistic work climate, mindfulness, existential harmony, customer-oriented view, sensitive attitudes, ethical temperament. The results of this study suggest that the organizational conscience scale is a valid and reliable measurement tool for further research on management.
