Keywords: Job Design, Organizational Commitment, Compensation


The profession of a physician is one of the highly respected and challenging jobs in the world today. It is one of the fields where intelligence and hard decisions are made to save lives. This study examined the relationship between job design, organizational commitment, and compensations; if job design and organizational commitment are predictors of compensation of physicians of a private hospital in Manila, Philippines; and if there is a significant difference in compensation when physician’s gender and years of service are considered. The research design was correlational using a t-test, analysis of variance (ANOVA), regression, and Pearson Correlation. Fifty hospital physicians were conveniently selected to answer a self-constructed questionnaire. The study revealed that job design and organizational commitment has a positive correlation to compensation in a health facility. Sex and years of service of the physicians do not differ on compensation. The study also revealed that attention should be given to organizational commitment. Organizational commitment predicted a positive relationship to compensation, but job design in terms of prediction, could not predict compensation though it had a positive relationship, which requires future studies to further investigate using other variables.
