Abstract

In the competitive market conditions of the globalizing world, productivity is essential for organizations. In order to ensure and maintain efficiency, various conditions must be met in organizations. The organizational justice perception of the employees is one of these conditions. It is thought that when employees think that the organization is fair to them, they can work more efficiently by feeling a moral responsibility. This situation can increase organizational efficiency. This study it is aimed to examine the effect of organizational justice on productivity. In this direction, the employees in a public institution in Ankara constituted the universe of the study. The study sample comprises 278 people (117 women and 161 men). Demographic Information Form, Organizational Justice and Productivity Scale were used to collect data. Correlation and regression analysis was applied in the statistical analysis of the data collected from the scales. Findings revealed that employees' perceptions of organizational justice are associated with productivity. In addition, it was determined that the dimensions of distributive justice, procedural justice and interactional justice, which are the sub-dimensions of organizational justice, have a statistically significant and positive relationship with productivity. Therefore, it has been concluded that employees' perceptions of organizational justice and its sub-dimensions increase organizational productivity. In this direction, it is recommended that managers and other decision-makers in organizations gain awareness of organizational justice.
