Introduction: Organizational culture is an influential factor for organizational performance in literature. The present study was aimed to determine the relationship between organizational culture and employee productivity in non-specialized teaching hospitals affiliated with Iran University of Medical Sciences (IUMS).

Methods: The stratified random sampling procedure was used to select 96 out of 1244 of the employees of the teaching hospitals affiliated with IUMS to participate in this research. The data were collected via a self-report questionnaire. The five points Likert scale used to score the questions where 1= very little, up to 5= a lot. 

Results: There is a significant relation between organizational culture and employee productivity (x2=57.0, P=›0/01). In comparing the mean score of organizational culture indices, "control" and "individual creativity" had the highest mean scores (e.g. 61.37 and 58.94 respectively). Among productivity indices, "understanding the job role" and "ability", had the highest mean scores (e.g. 69.35 and 57.68 respectively). 

Conclusion: It would be desirable to prepare an appropriate atmosphere for innovators and to teach employees about the value of effort.
