Introduction: The efficacy and success of an organization depend on its employees’ performance and satisfaction. On the other hand, motivating employees to improve their work quality and increase their productivity are essential principles of one organization's staff management.
Objective: This research aimed to study the motivation and job satisfaction and their relations in hospital staff in Sanandaj Kurdistan province.
Materials and Methods: As a cross-sectional study, 175 hospital employees in Sanandaj were selected through a simple random sampling method. Scales were Verve's Bayfield test for measuring personal satisfaction, and a researcher-made questionnaire according to the Herzberg theory for measuring job motivation which its initial Cronbach was in an acceptable range (0/87). Data were analyzed through SPSS version 22.
Results: The overall mean of job satisfaction for nurses was 3/12, for office personnel 3/09, and personnel in the service category was 2/75, these means are below the normal mean. Job satisfaction didn't show meaningful differences between groups but it has a positive correlation with motivation (r=0/572). Among motivational factors, the sense of responsibility with 3/9 score, development and progress 3/18, and health-related factors such as good income 3/9, and good relationship with others 3/81, were prioritized in the second level of determinative factors.
Discussion and Conclusion: According to the study findings, and the fact that motivation and job satisfaction are highly influential factors in increasing the productivity of an organization, hospital management should pay special attention to motivating employees and improving approaches to increase satisfaction among their staff.
