Authors: Indi Djastuti, Susilo Toto Rahardjo, Lala Irviana, Udin Udin
Abstract: This study aims to examine the relationship between fun at work and employee performance by using the mediation role of job satisfaction and organizational commitment. A sample of 170 respondents who worked in manufacturing companies is used. By employing structural equation modeling to test hypotheses proposed, this study found that there is no significant direct effect of fun at work on employee performance. This study further found that there is a significant indirect effect of fun at work on employee performance mediated by job satisfaction and organizational commitment. Therefore, the organization needs to create activities that will give employees a sense of excitement as a way to satisfy and increase their commitment to performance improvement.
