Abstract


Work at mining and industrial companies does not only require physical strength, but it involves many different cultural and social aspects as well. The organization of work is a concept that has been widely accentuated on different fields such as: management, social sciences and of course sociology. The organization of work can be divided into two formal and informal dimensions. Body and appearance management is a very important social and cultural structure that is derived from our environment and especially our work environment. The purpose of this study is to analyze the relationship between the work organization and body-appearance management of workers of Gol Gohar Sirjan Mining and Industrial Companies. The data of this study was gathered from a sample consisting of 384 workers of Gol Gohar Sirjaan Companies, elicited by means of random sampling methods. The data analysis of our study was carried out by multiple regressions and Pearson’s correlation technique. The results of our multiple regression showed that there is a strong relationship between the variable of informal work organization and the body and appearance management of the workers.
