This study was a cross-sectional, retrospective, and used convenient sampling from secondary data in the employee service books, Human Resource Management Information System (HRMIS) information and staff medical records in 2016. The results of this study show that there was significant relationship between socio-demographic factors with work performance, which were gender, monthly income and education level. However, there was no significant relationship between ethnicity (p=0.692), age (p=0.102), marital status (p=1.000) and period of service (p=0.299). There was no significant relationship found between health factor and job factor with work performance.
