Human participation and involvement have long been of concern in human social life and has now become a fundamental issue in bureaucracy. Accordingly, the current applied mixed-method research aimed to identify effective variables in implementing municipal public policy, and thereby, to find out an employee participatory pattern that can be implemented to promote cooperation among municipal employees and enhance productivity. To serve the purpose, a researcher-made questionnaire was designed. Initially, a profound literature review was undertaken to delineate employee participation variables. Further, the public policy making was delineated based on views obtained from 18 experts in the field of public administration and using the snow ball method. To collect the research data, a researcher-made employee’s participation questionnaire including 10 factors and 58 prominent components was designed based on Delphi Method. The research population comprised all the mayors and municipality managers from the Northwest of the country out of which a cluster sample of 223 was selected. The data were analyzed descriptively and statistically via PLS Structural Equation Modelling and t-test. The results revealed that the executives’ behavioural, expertise, structural, management and executive skills, cultural, group, economic, environmental and participatory components play significant roles in affecting employees’ participation in implementing public policy. Based on the expert views and the findings, a practical model was proposed to enhance employee participation in implementing public policy.
