Abstract

The objective of this paper is to measure the significant relationship between entrepreneurial intentions and reward with job performance among employees in the Terengganu’s Educational Department. In this paper, job performance is the dependent variable, Entrepreneurial intentions is the independent variable which included five factors; pro-activeness, innovativeness, team-building, risk-taking and autonomous decision making. In addition, the utilisation of reward was also investigated as a moderating variable. A total of 197 questionnaires were distributed to employees at the Terengganu Education Department. However, only 168 were completed and returned to the researchers. Analysis of the data revealed that the five factors (e.g. pro-activeness, innovativeness, team-building, risk-taking and autonomous) in the entrepreneurial intentions construct are correlated with job performance of the employees. However the strength of the association of these variables is moderate. Furthermore, the utilisation of reward does not moderate the relationship between entrepreneurial intentions and the job performance of employees at the Terengganu Educational Department. 

Keywords: Entrepreneurial intentions, job performance, employees, educational department, pro-activeness, innovativeness, risk-taking, team building, reward, autonomous.
