Abstract: Organizational health is an important issue of community and organizations. That the basic prerequisites for its emergence are the adoption of valuation of the organization and work conscience. In this study, besides investigating the efficacy of work conscience on organizational health, the role of valuation as a mediating variable has been studied as well. The present applied research is descriptive-survey in terms of method. The statistical population includes managers and employees of selected organizations in Maragheh and Zanjan with 2706 subjects. The data were collected through a questionnaire with a stratified random sampling method, distributed among 443 staff members of the study organization. Questionnaires have adequate validity and reliability and after collecting the data, structural equation modeling of SPSS20 and PLS software was used to test the hypotheses. Results showed that work conscience affects organizational health with severity (0.218), and it affects organizational health with mediating role of valuation with severity (0.657). Also, the Islamic Development Organization allocated the highest mean score of work conscience (4/51) the organizational health score (3/76), and The Foundation of Martyrs and Veterans Affairs (3/70).
