Abstract: 

The present research has been carried out to identify the factors inhibiting the establishment of meritocracy at the level of professional managers of governmental organizations in the city of Ahwaz. To do this, the researchers have addressed three questions. The first question tries to discover the factors preventing the establishment of meritocracy. The second question seeks to rate the inhibitory factors according to their importance. And finally, the third question tries to determine the structural relations between the preventing factors and meritocracy system. Based on the research methodology, the exploratory factor analysis has been applied for the statistical population (N=10377), and through the use of Morgan’s Sampling Table, a sample of 384 has been chosen. Also, for data analysis, a researcher-designed questionnaire has been utilized in two parts. The first part to identify the degree of meritocracy establishment and the second part to recognize the factors inhibiting the establishment of meritocracy. The reliability of the questionnaires, based on Cronbach’s alpha has been 0.93 and 0.83, respectively. The collected data have been analyzed by using the statistical software spss and other tools in descriptive and inferential statistics. The findings have led to the conclusion that nepotism, inequality of opportunities, and superficiality are the three preventing factors. Also, it can be concluded that nepotism is ranked first, inequality of opportunities the second, and superficiality the third from the viewpoint of importance. Finally, the results showed that there is a statistically significant relation between the inhibitory factors and meritocracy establishment.
