The questionnaire was distributed to all 50 employees at the organization. However, only 40 questionnaires were then collected, making the return rate at 80%. Since the number of respondents were less than 100, only SPSS based tests were conducted, namely the descriptive, reliability and regression tests.

It was also found that non-financial compensation has demonstrated a stronger relationship to the job performance compared to financial.
Novelty – In contrary to prior studies the study found out that financial compensation does not affect the job performance.
