THE EFFECT OF WORK ENVIRONMENT ON EMPLOYEE PERFORMANCE MEDIATED BY REMUNERATION IN STATE UNIVERSITIES
The performance of education professionals at universities is critical to running university operations smoothly. This study aimed to see how the work environment affected employee performance as mediated by compensation. This study is explanatory. A convenience sample of 120 respondents from education personnel in state universities was selected using a convenience sampling approach. As a research instrument, questionnaires were given to education staff at state universities in South Sumatra. The partial least squares structural equation model (SEM-PLS) was used to examine the data. The findings revealed that the work environment considerably influenced salary but had no effect on employee performance. Furthermore, pay has a considerable impact on employee performance. Furthermore, the study's findings indicate that salary plays a complete mediating role in moderating the influence of the work environment on employee performance. It indicates that by optimizing compensation, the work environment will have a direct influence on increasing education personnel performance.
