Background and Objectives: Spiritual health has a positive effect on the organizational behavior of healthcare personnel with patients as well as organizational productivity. Accordingly, the present study aimed to investigate the relationship between spiritual health and job performance of operating room personnel working in the academic hospitals of Qom, Iran, during 2017-2018.
Methods: This cross-sectional study was carried out on a total of 95 operating room personnel of the teaching centers of Qom. Spiritual health was evaluated through a standard and native questionnaire. Furthermore, the questionnaire of Paterson's occupational performance was used as another study tool.
Results: The participants’ mean scores of age and work experience were 33.05±7 and 9±8 years, respectively. The mean score of job performance was reported as 63±11. On the other hand, the mean score of spiritual health was estimated at 205±22. The results of the data analysis showed that there were no significant differences in spiritual health and job performance scores based on demographic variables (P>0.05). The differences between Pearson's correlation coefficients of job performance, as well as spiritual health, and the two related subsets (i.e., cognitive/emotional and behavioral components) were statistically significant (P<0.01).
Conclusion: Considering the relationship between personnel's spiritual health and job performance, it is possible to improve the factors related to the effectiveness of organizational behavior by conducting management interventions and enhancing an individual's spiritual health. It is recommended to pay more attention to spirituality in organizations and conduct similar studies in other provinces of Iran.
