To implement Good Governance, the UN follows eight principles: (a) Rule of Law, (b) Transparency, (c) Responsiveness, (d) Consensus Oriented, (e) Equity and Inclusiveness, (f) Effectiveness and Efficiency, (g) Accountability, and (h) Participation.

The study aims to compare the perceptions of good governance between the personnel of a government institution and a private corporation. This study is important because it intends to determine if there is a gap between the perceptions of government employees and private company employees. The hypothesis of the study, among others, determined if there is no significant difference between the level of agreement on the eight elements when the respondents are grouped according to their employment. The research used the descriptive form of study.

Findings indicated that among the eight elements, when the participants are grouped according to their profile, Transparency, Equity, and Inclusiveness, Accountability and Participation showed significant differences. On the other hand, when participants are grouped according to their employment only Consensus Oriented as well as Equity and Inclusiveness show significant differences.

It is recommended that companies should encourage Transparency, Equity, and Inclusiveness, Accountability, and Participation, particularly to young employees. On the other hand, government corporations should make a concerted effort to foster (1) Consensus Orientation and (2) Equity and Inclusiveness in their agencies. Since this study involved only one Government Corporation and one private company, further studies involving more agencies should be done. The elements of good governance should form as core values of both the government and private corporations.
