Abstract

Background:: Labor laws and regulations have inevitable effects on employees’ work motivation as well as the overall efficiency and productivity of the organization.

Objectives:: This study was conducted to assess the effects of the “Countrywide Services Management Law” on the work motivation level of the employees of the Iranian Ministry of Health.

Patients and Methods:: This cross-sectional study was done in 2011 in the Iran's Ministry of Health. Data was collected by a 51-item Likert scale questionnaire, in five domains including: organizational structure, information technology, training patterns, salary and bonus system and re-engineering process. The reliability and validity of the questionnaire was evaluated (Cronbach's alpha= 0.96). Data analysis was conducted using descriptive and inferential statistics (t-test).

Results:: Out of 192 samples examined, 55.2% of the respondents were female, 88 (45.8%) had BS degree and 116 (60.4%) had less than 10 years’ experience. The mean scores in the domains of organizational structure, information technology, training patterns, salary and bonus system and re-engineering patterns were: 3.11, 3.51, 3.05, 3.21 and 3.14, respectively. Relationship between the items related to manpower in the “Countrywide Services Management Law”, with employees' work motivation was significant (P < 0.0001). The training patterns did not show a significant relation (P < 0.26) with any of five domains.

Conclusions:: According to our results and the views of the employees of the Iranian Ministry of Health, “Countrywide Services Management Law” positively affected the personnel's work motivation regarding all the factors associated with motivation including: organizational structure, information technology, training patterns, salary and bonus system and re-engineering pattern. Finally, to enhance the workforce motivation and satisfaction level, application and implementation of the rules and regulations should be based on the organizational needs.
