Role of Social Capital in Employee Productivity in Iranian Banks
The purpose of this study is to investigate the role of social capital in employee productivity in the selected banks
in Isfahan Province. It is a descriptive-correlational approach, and the statistical population includes 115 bank employees in
2014-2015 that are selected through simple random sampling. Tools of data collection were Nahapiet and Ghoshal's social
capital questionnaire and Hersey and Goldsmith's productivity questionnaire. The collected data was analyzed at descriptive
and inferential statistics levels including independent t-test, variance analysis, Pearson correlation coefficient, and regression
analysis. The results disclosed that cognitive dimension of social capital has a slight predictability (β=0.013) for productivity
but in turn, the structural and relational dimensions of social capital have the highest predictability for productivity with
predictable values equal to β= 0.625 and β= 0.267.
