Introduction: When productivity is in the same way with culture and organized socialization, it is
the gem of organization that can ensure stableness and survival of the organizations and be the
mechanism for taking the competitive advantage. In contrast, the attention to socialization and
the effect of that on productivity is less than its effect on public culture and organization culture.
Hence this article evaluates the relationship between these variables in two groups of employees in
selected hospitals in Isfahan. Materials and Methods: This study is descriptive – correlation. The
subject society who was studied was employees (nurses and staffs) of Kashany educational public
hospital, Isabn Maryam public hospital, charitable Hojatie hospital and private Sadi hospitals in
Isfahan province. For determination of socialization, the Biligard questionnaire and for productivity of
employees the productivity questionnaire based on Goldesmit model were used that the justifiability
and stability of them are confirmed by experts. The number of subject under study is calculated based
on 250 persons‑formula sampling. Results: There is a direct and significant correlation between
socialization and productivity. On the other hand, the factors such age, sex, organizational position,
history and the kind of employment, had no role excluding Sadi hospital. Conclusion: Although
the productivity of the employees affects the accessibility of the hospital to its effective goals, the
effective factors that play a role in increasing or decreasing the accessibility cannot be ignored.
