Abstract:   (17550 Views)
The present research studies how material and non-material factors could attract people to work in public and private sectors. The study focuses on the effect of financial incentives on better performance in the workplace, as well as the importance of wages, job security, authority, and job satisfaction in both the public and the private sectors. Research subjects are all public and private sector employees in Semnan Province with at least two years work experience. The computing formula, derived form the formula provided by Cochran's Sampling Techniques (1977), puts their number at about 230. A number of the subjects are also graduate students of public administration, industrial management, and industires management at Semnan's State Management Training Center, Semnan's Islamic Azad University, and the Semnan Branch of Iran's Higher Education Center for Industries. Random selection, closed ended questionnaires, and the Likert Scale are used for data collection purposes. The present research method is computatinal (peymayeshi) Chi-square (X2) and T-Test are used to analyze the data. Findings in the public and private sectors are after opportunities to enjoy on-the-job training and upward mobility. Job security, wages, and incentives appear to be of secondary importance and as such do not serve as distinctive features of any of the two sectors. In the private sector,however, employees attach importance to financial incentives and promotion.
