Background and Objective: Organizational commitment has been considered the objective and efficient achievement of the organization's goals and values, the achievement of the individual's role in relation to the goals and values, and the achievement of the organization for its own sake. This study was conducted to investigate the quality of work life (QWL) and organizational commitment and their relationship with each other.
Materials and Methods: A descriptive-analytical cross-sectional study was conducted in 2022. In total, 80 health service workers of Gorgan city participated in the study in a random stratified manner. The data were collected using valid and established questionnaires of Walton's QWL and Allen and Meyer's organizational commitment and were analyzed with descriptive methods and statistical tests in SPSS software (version 23).
Results: The average age of the participants was 40.11 ± 9.04 years. The majority of participants were female (69.3%). In general, 18.9% of the participants had a low QWL, 66.8% had an average QWL, and 14.3% had a high quality of life. In addition, 11.1% of people had low organizational commitment, 77.1% had medium organizational commitment, and 11.8% had high organizational commitment. A statistically significant relationship was observed between the QWL and organizational commitment (P=0.001).
Conclusion: The QWL and organizational commitment of employees were evaluated at moderate levels, and with the increase in the QWL, organizational commitment also increased. The managers of the university and health centers should pay more attention to the quality of their working life and provide measures to improve it to be able to increase the level of commitment and attachment of their employees.
