Population was 1500 persons of Ministry of Cooperatives, Labor and Social Welfare that using Cochran's sampling formula that Sample size was determined 306 employees by simple random sampling. Self-directed learning questionnaire with the reliability (α =0/93) and human capital questionnaire with the reliability (α =0/95) were used to collect data, that have also reviewed and approved the content and construct validity of questionnaire. To analyze the data, the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test, confirmatory factor analysis, t-test, Pearson correlation coefficient, stepwise regression and structural equation modeling were used. Results showed that self-directed learning and human capital of employees higher than the average and self-directed learning had a significant positive correlation (r=0/65) with human capital of employees. Structural equation modeling of self- directed learning and human capital, with parameters fitted was approved and self-directed learning with path coefficient (γ =0/75) has impact on human capital.Stepwise regression analysis showed that, among the components of SDL, the choice of learning strategies, identify sources of learning and learning self- assessment predicted 41% of their human capital.
