Work, particularly under stressful conditions, leads to physical and mental strain reactions. To bring this strain process to an end, recovery is needed. The aim of this study was to determine the effectiveness of job demand`s recovery on staff`s recovery experience (mental detachment, relaxation, mastery experience and control). The research method was experimental in which the pretest-posttest design with control group was used. The study population included all male employees of Ahvaz National Drilling Company out of whom 30 persons were selected for hypothesis testing and 80 persons were selected for validating the questionnaire through simple random sampling. “Recovery Experience Questionnaire” was used for data collection 10 two- hour training sessions were held for 5 weeks. Due to lack of regression homogeneity assumption for doing covariance analysis, the analysis of variance was performed for analyzing the data. The results showed significant differences between experimental and control groups in terms of relaxation, experience mastery, mental detachment, and feeling of control (p <0/001). Therefore, training of job demand`s recovery increased different dimension of employees' recovery experiences. In other words, participants in training class learned how to manage their time after work to relieve from job demands and stress.
