عنوان مقاله [English]
Targeting at sustainable development provides the government with formidable challenges in performance assessment of governmental employees. As a particular organization whose decisions can greatly impact the environment and citizens’ personal lives, the government should be held accountable for the quality of executive behavior incongruence with sustainable development. Hence, the current exploratory, developmental study aimed to operationalize a performance assessment model based on sustainable development to assess employees in public organizations. Initially, the intended model was designed based on an in-depth literature review and interview with a snow ball sample of 23 expert executive managers in the ministry of health headquarters. Next, a questionnaire was designed and administered to a straight random sample of 202 employees and managers of the Ministry of Health and Medical Education selected based on Kukran Table. The collected data were then analyzed via structural equation modelling, factor analysis and Lisrel software. The results identified four factors of sustainable development-based performance assessment model including economic, social-cultural, political and environmental. The results also revealed that the environmental and social-cultural factors had priority. Accordingly, suggestions and applications of the model are discussed to improve the performance evaluation of staff sustainable development.
