The results of the quantitative part of the research also revealed that the effect of Compensation of Staff Services (p = 0.059, β = 0.077) and Organizational Structure (p = 0.052, β = 0.079) on Human Resource Productivity is significant at the level of 1%. While, the impact of variables of Organizational Culture (p = 0.001, β = 0.340), Motivational Factors (p = 0.035, β = 0.086), Leadership Style (p = 0.001, β = 0.391), Staff Training and Empowerment (p = 0.001, β = 0.281), Quality of Human Resources (p = 0.001, β = 0.201), Information Technology (p = 0.001, β = 0.224) and Work Environment (p = 0.001, β = 0.273) is significant on Human Resource Productivity at the level of 5%.
