The purpose of this study is to analyze the influence of self-efficacy and workload on the performance of the State Civil Apparatus (ASN) in the Land Office of South Hulu Sungai Regency through work stress as a mediation variable. The evaluation method in this study, using Partial Least Square-Structural Equation Modeling (PLS-SEM) method with SmartPLS3.0 software. The results showed that the influence of workload on work stress, as well as the influence of workload and the influence of work stress on ASN Performance had a positive and significant correlation, while self-efficacy was positively correlated, but did not significantly affect ASN performance.
