Aims: The aim of this study was to identify factors affecting job motivation and the prioritization of them using Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP). Methods: This study was a cross-sectional descriptive study done in 2012 in a military center. The sample size consisted of 115 participants. Data collection instruments included two questionnaires designed based on Herzberg motivation theory. Analytical Hierarchy Process Model (AHP) was used in order to prioritize the identified factors. Result: The results showed that among factors affecting job satisfaction, ‘job security’ and ‘proportional salary’ stood first and second with an importance coefficients of 0.29 and 0.20 respectively, and the ‘organization’s policy’ and ‘social relations with colleagues’ stood last with an importance coefficient of 0.02. Conclusion: By ensuring personnel’s job security and considering their living and financial conditions as well as making their salary correspond with their responsibility, an organization can provide a secure platform for achieving its pursued goals by improving its personnel’s efficacy.
