Introduction: Productivity is recognized as an essential factor in the growth of the organization. Identifying factors that can boost productivity is consistent with the primary objectives of any organization. The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between the productivity of operating room specialists and their job satisfaction in educational and therapeutic hospitals affiliated with the Maragheh University of Medical Sciences.
Methods and Materials: A descriptive and analytic study was conducted on 58 operating room technologists employed by the Maragheh educational hospital in 2022. This study has been performed through census sampling method. Data were collected through three demographic profile questionnaires, the Minnesota Job Satisfaction Standard Questionnaire (MS), and the Hersey and Goldsmith Productivity Standard Questionnaire. The data were analyzed using descriptive and inferential methods including Pearson’s test. SPSS software version 26 was used to analyze the gathered data. P-values below 0.05 were considered statistically significant.
Results: The average age of the participants was 33.01±7.04 in the study. Most of them were women (82.8%), and they had bachelor degree in operating room (50%). The level of job satisfaction was average and the level of productivity was low. The mean and standard deviation for productivity and job satisfaction were 71.55±15.25 and 71.77±13.54, respectively. There is a statistically significant and direct relationship between job satisfaction and the productivity of the operating room staff of Maragheh Medical University Hospitals (P<0.001, R=0.680).
Discussion and Conclusion: The importance of productivity to the success of the organization should be considered by the administration. Considering the relationship between high productivity and employee job satisfaction, particularly among operating room technologists, managers can place greater emphasis on motivating personnel to increase their job satisfaction in order to achieve high productivity in the operating room which is the heart of the hospital.
