عنوان مقاله [English]
The current empirical enquiry aimed to investigate the relationship among job rotation, musculoskeletal disorders and human resource productivity in Iran Carton Manufacturing Company and to detect any significant and interaction effect among the constructs. To this end, a sample of 116 laborers at Iran Carton Company was randomly selected to take part in the study. The research data collected from the sample were analyzed via ANOVA, Independent Samples T-test and Paired Samples T-test. The results revealed significant differences in the human resource productivity of the participants with and without job rotation practice. Similarly, significant differences were observed in risk levels of musculoskeletal disorders before and after job rotation. However, the difference in human productivity of laborers with varying risk levels of musculoskeletal disorders did not reach significance level. Moreover, the results indicated that risk level of musculoskeletal disorders did not mediate the relationship between job rotation practice and human resource productivity.
