Background: Staff is the only sustainable competitive advantage of any organization; the success of the organization depends on the empowerment and health of the staff. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between psychological empowerment and health of librarians in state universities of Yazd.
Methods: This descriptive-analytic study was conducted among librarians working in libraries, research centers, and journal offices of Yazd Universities in 2016. The tools included psychological empowerment questionnaire (α = 0.95) and GHQ28 questionnaire of Goldberg and Hiller (α = 0.83). Data were analyzed by SPSS 20 using Pearson, Anova, and t-test.
Results: The results showed that the mean scores of psychological empowerment and health score for librarians were 19.73 ± 2.44 and 23.48 ± 11.20, respectively. In the correlational study of health empowerment, Pearson correlation coefficient (p > 0.05) was obtained. The relationship between empowerment and health scores was significant and inverse.
Conclusion: Managers and administrators of libraries in Yazd state universities should consider the psychological empowerment of librarians as one of the main strategies for improving their health. Health status of the librarians should be considered as an important factor required for health evolution.
