Introduction: Identifying the effective factors in creating and increasing job motivation of faculty members to conduct educational and research activities is very useful. The purpose of this study was to assess the effect of Hackman & Oldham’s job characteristics model on creating and developing job motivation in faculty members.
Methods: The statistical population of this descriptive, correlational study consisted of faculty members of Shiraz University of Medical Sciences, of whom 140 were selected as the sample. Data collection tool was a compilation of two close-ended and standard questionnaires based on 5-point Likert scale. Data were analyzed using Lisrel 8.5.
Results:Results showed that task importance, task identity, task variety, job autonomy and job feedback had a direct significant effect on job motivation of the faculty members. Job autonomy (path coefficient=0.51) and task identity (path coefficient=0.19) had the most and the least effect on job motivation respectively.
Conclusion:Considering the confirmation of all the hypotheses in this study, the present conceptual model is appropriate for creating and developing job motivation among faculty members. Drawing on these findings, managers of universities of medical sciences can make appropriate decisions in order to increase faculty members’ job motivation.
