Impact of Workplace Spirituality and Deviant Behavior on Personnel Performance Moderating and Mediation Effects

Moh. Nasrullah, Ginta Ginting, Zainur Hidayah


This study aimed to examine the effect of job satisfaction and organizational commitment on personnel performance with spirituality at work as a moderating variable and deviant behavior as a mediating variable. The research was conducted at The Directorate General of Criminal Investigation of West Nusa Tenggara Regional Police, involving 99 personnel. Determination of the research sample is done by purposive sampling. The data collection tool used in this study was a questionnaire. The data analysis tool uses PLS analysis. The results showed that workplace spirituality could not strengthen job satisfaction's effect on personnel's deviant behavior. On the other hand, workplace spirituality can enhance the influence of organizational commitment on the Deviant Behavior of Personnel. Job satisfaction has no significant effect on performance through deviant behavior of personnel. Likewise, Organizational Commitment has no considerable impact on Performance through Deviant Behavior of Personnel. The mediating result that proved to be insignificant can be a reference for future researchers to review the mediating effect of Deviant Behavior in the Workplace.
