Discipline, employee’s performance, responsibility, work result


This study aims to test the validity and reliability of the employee performance scale and test aspects and indicators that can form an employee performance variable. Employee performance is measured by three aspects, namely work result, discipline, and responsibility. This study's population were all employees who served in the operating room of Hospital "X" in Yogyakarta, and the number of samples in this study was 61 operating room employees at this Hospital. The sampling technique is done with simple random sampling. Data collection methods use an employee performance scale. The research data were analyzed with Structural Equation Modelling (SEM) through the SmartPLS 3.2.8 program. Based on the data analysis results, the aspects and indicators that make up the employee's performance variables are declared valid and reliable. The most dominant aspect that reflects employee performance variables is discipline with loading factor 0.860, and the weakest aspect that reflects employee performance variables is the work result with a loading factor of 0.780. This shows that all aspects and indicators are able to reflect and shape employee performance variables. Thus, the measurement model can be accepted because the theory that describes employee performance variables fit with empirical data obtained from the subject.
