AbstractIntroduction: Shortage of doctors and nurses is a global problem. How to retain them in the public sector is one of the most important issues that needs to tackle at the administrative level. There are numerous number of studies focusing on the factors that medical staff considered to be significant in enhancing their job satisfaction so as to make them stay in their existing job. However, there are relatively fewer studies on the intervention that are effective to increase the job satisfaction. In this project, literatures are reviewed on the effectiveness of different management measures in enhancing job satisfaction of the medical staff. Method: Literature search on the effect of different management measures on job satisfaction of medical staff. The review will also cover the combination of various measures in order to maximize their effects in enhancement of job satisfaction. Results: It is suggested that by improving the working environment, which includes unit re-organization, workload re-allocation and new technology adoption, is the most common and effective way to improve job satisfaction among medical staff. Indirectly, by allowing more autonomy and provision of training as well as learning opportunities to the staff can lead to an increase in self-esteem and respect from patients and colleagues. These will in turn improve job satisfaction. However, due to the use of different evaluation methodologies by different investigators, direct comparison of the management measurements is difficult. Conclusion: The management measures like improving the working environment, allowing more autonomy and providing trainings are found to be effective in enhancing job satisfaction of medical staff. Using standardized evaluation tools will allow a more valid comparison between different interventions.
