Factors affecting employees’ salaries in Omani public sector




  • Dhiaa Shamki uruk

The study examines the effect of employees’ performance appraisal, gender, age and position
on salaries and extra amounts received by the employees during period of 2011–2017 based on the selected
sample from Ministry of Social Developments in Oman. To achieve the study’s objectives, the study
examines the relationship among the mentioned variables using analyses of descriptive statistics, correlation
analysis and multiple regressions. The study finds that performance appraisal has positive and significant
effect on salary and extra. In presence of employees’ gender, age and position, this effect will be negative
and significant for employees’ salaries and negative and insignificant for extra amounts. As a starting point
for future research, the study adds new empirical evidence to the research body on how to enhance the
performance of employees based on the annual appraisal with their salaries in the public sector.
