          The present study aims to examine the impact of business process management on employee's job performance at the Social Security Corporation (SCC). The study's sample consists of (390) employees who will be answering the study's questions and hypotheses. In addition, the researcher developed a questionnaire to detect the impact of business process management on job performance. The most important findings and conclusions of the research are: the arithmetic means of employees' estimates at the SCC towards job performance were moderate and the arithmetic mean of employees' estimates at SCC towards business process management were high too. Regression results indicate there were statistically significant effects for BPM on job performance at the SCC, and process improvement influence came first concerning the size of the effect. The study recommends the SCC to adopt strategic objectives, to increase the concern and interest about IT, and provide electronic services.
