Abstract: 

The present study tests a model of the relationship between Islamic work ethics and job satisfaction and organizational commitment with mediation of intrinsic motivation. Research design was correlation through structural equation modeling (SEM) and the sample consisted of 203 employees of Sabzevar University of Medical Sciences selected by census sampling method. Participants in this study completed questionnaires on Islamic work ethics, job satisfaction, organizational commitment and intrinsic motivation. Reliability and validity of all questionnaires were reported to be at an acceptable level. Data were analyzed through structural equation modeling (SEM) using AMOS-21 and SPSS-19 software packages. In addition, Preacher and Hayes’ SPSS macro program was used for testing mediation. The results showed that the proposed model fit the data properly, and that Islamic work ethics directly affected job satisfaction and organizational commitment. Moreover, the mediating effect of intrinsic motivation on the relationship between Islamic work ethics and job satisfaction and organizational commitment was confirmed. Employers can therefore rely on Islamic work ethics and training the employees and supervisors to reinforce intrinsic motivation, and thus promote job satisfaction and organizational commitment.
