Abstract: 
The purpose of this research is to examine the relationship between empowerment and organizational structure and the required factors in order to propose an appropriate approach for empowerment of employees. As an approach to identify and evaluate organizational structure, three traits of formality, sophistication and concentration (Robbins theory) is applied as the basis of structure study, and psychological empowerment is employed as evaluation criterion for empowerment. According to earlier researches related to empowerment (particularly Spritzer research work), the psychological empowerment consists of four traits of competence, self-determination, meaningfulness and effectiveness.
From a population of 560 employees of NIOPDC (Tehran area), 230 sample were randomly selected using simple sampling plan, and Spearman’s coefficient correlation was used to investigate the relationship between organizational structure and employees’ empowerment.
The findings of the analysis are then employed to identify and suggest a conventional model for the application of psychological empowerment in research community.
