WORK PLACEMENT, ORGANIZATIONAL COMMITMENT AND EMPLOYEE PERFORMANCE:
EVALUATION OF PUBLIC SERVICE OFFICES IN INDONESIA
Keywords:employee performance; organizational commitment; work placement
Mismatch between skills, expertise and work placements among civil servants is often a phenomenon that occurs in many public service offices in Indonesia. This condition is exacerbated by low organizational commitment. Because these two aspects can lead to poor public service, this study aims to evaluate the impact of work placements and organizational commitment on employee performance. The results of Partial Least Square (PLS) analysis show that work placements have a positive and significant impact on employee performance. However, despite its positive influence on employee performance, organizational commitment does not have a significant impact on their performance. This study provides an overview of the performance of the tourism agency in one of the regional governments of West Java Province of Indonesia.
