Abstract

Objective: Human resource productivity is one of the priorities for progress and development in any organization. Organizational commitment amongst staff members improves their positive attitude towards the organization and organizational justice is one of the requirements for any type of social participation. The present study was conducted with the aim of evaluating the relationship between organizational justice and organizational commitment and human resource productivity from the viewpoint of intensive care (ICU) nurses.


Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted with 200 nurses working in the teaching hospitals of Mazandaran University of Medical Sciences, (five hospitals) Iran in 2018. The data were collected using the Demographic Characteristics Questionnaire, Moorman and Niehoffs Organizational Justice Questionnaire, Allen and Meyer Organizational Commitment Questionnaire and Human Resource Productivity Questionnaire. Data were analyzed using SPSS 20 software and descriptive and inferential statistical methods (Pearson correlation coefficient and linear regression analysis).


Results: The results of the study revealed that the mean of organizational justice, organizational commitment and human resource productivity was 52.26 ± 34.16, 96.75 ± 14.62 and 65.39 ± 18.05, respectively. The results of Pearson correlation coefficient showed a positive and significant correlation between organizational justice and human resource productivity (r = 0.615; P = 0.001) and between organizational commitment and human resource productivity (r = 0.140; P = 0.048). Accordingly, with increasing organizational justice and organizational commitment, human resource productivity also increases, and vice versa.


Conclusion: The results of this study showed that organizational justice and organizational commitment have a significant effect on human resources productivity. Hospital managers can consider the role of psychological interventions and strengthening justice and organizational commitment in improving human resource productivity of nurses.
