The purpose of this study was to find out the relationship between participative management factors and employees' job motivation. The study was based on the correlational descriptive method and was carried out as a field study. The population (N=122) included all employees in the physical education offices in West Azerbaijan. The sample consisted of 98 employees who filled out the questionnaires and sent them back to the researcher. For data collection, two valid and highly reliable (r = 0.84, participative management) and (r = 0.87, job motivation) questionnaires were applied. The findings of the chi-square analyses implied a significant relationship between participative management factors (participation in decision – making, human relations, organization climate) and job motivation (P<0.05).
