[Full Text]



A. Nur Insan



Servant Leadership, Reward System, Locus Control, Job Satisfaction, Performance



Examine the effect of servant leadership and reward system on Locus of Control, job satisfaction, and performance of foundation’s lecturers in East Indonesia University. This research was a survey research. The independent variables were servant leadership and reward system while the dependent variables were Locus of Control, job satisfaction, and performance of employees. The population of this research was 218 lecturers of East Indonesia Foundation, and the sample of this research was 116 lecturers. In this research, the variables of servant leadership, reward system, and Locus of Control were correlated with a reflexive indicator model. Meanwhile, the variable with formative indicator model was job satisfaction. By combining the variables with reflection and formative indicator models, Generalized Structured Component Analysis (GSCA) was considered more suitable to be used for the data analysis instruments. The foundation’s lecturers completing their master studies (S2) in University of East Indonesia are paid or rewarded with 50% cash and 50% shopping voucher. The reward system applied by East Indonesia Foundation is based on the consideration that the lecturers completed their master studies with the help or scholarship provided by the foundation. In other words, the lecturers run their master studies without paying any tuition until they graduate. However, the foundation’s lecturers completing their master studies in other university are paid 100% cash of salary. No one has examined the reward system applied by East Indonesia Foundation (including East Indonesia University), that is 50% cash and 50% shopping voucher.
