Authors : Rosa Arnika ; Muhammad Adam ; Hamdi Harmen
Abstract:
This study aims to explore the role of quality work of life in mediating the effects of leadership and work environment on employee performance at the Aceh Civil Service Agency (Badan Kepegawaian Aceh- BKA), Indonesia. From a total of 240 employees in BKA, as many as 150 employees were selected as respondents in this study using the proportionate stratified random sampling technique. By adopting the Structural Equation Modelling (SEM) approach, this study found evidence that leadership and work environment had a significant positive effect on the quality of work-life and employee performance. In addition, quality work of life was found to be significant in mediating the effects of leadership and work environment on employee performance. These empirical findings imply that to enhance employee performance, it can be done either directly by improving the quality of leadership and creating a conducive work environment or indirectly through improving the quality of work of life.
