Abstract: This study aimed at discovering and explaining the model of compensation system for the staff working in a selected public university in Iran. In this study, all staff and faculty members of the university were considered as the statistical population. The sample size was determined using Cochran formula and the subjects were randomly selected. A total of 177 questionnaires were completed and 15 incomplete questionnaires were excluded. The questionnaire was designed based on theoretical foundations and characteristics of the human resources management system of the studied university, and then confirmed by the experts in the field of human resource. The collected data were analysed using the SEM with Smart-PLS software and the compensation factors were ranked using the effect size evaluation method (f2). Based on the results, this study identified 31 components, categorised in four dimensions of compensation, including financial-membership dimension, financial-performance dimension, non-financial-environment dimension, and non-financial-job dimension.
Keywords: compensation for services; financial-membership dimension; financial-performance dimension; non-financial-environment dimension; non-financial-job dimension.
