WORK PRESSURE AND HIERARCHICAL LEVEL AS THE PREDICTOR OF INTENTION TO MISBEHAVE
Background: Intention to misbehave is a factor which mediates antecedents and organizational misbehavior manifestations (Vardi & Wiener, 1996). One of the forms of organizational misbehavior manifestations is withdrawal behavior which leads to tardiness and absence.
This research was conducted based on the employees of RSMU’s high average of tardiness which exceeds the limit of tolerance in 2014-2016 with 21,75%. The purpose of the study is to analyze the influence of work pressure and hierarchical level towards the intention to misbehave.
Materials and Methods: As many as 70 employees of Rumah Sakit Mata Undaan Surabaya were involved in the research with cross sectional design. The primary data which consists of work pressure, hierarchical level, and intentionto misbehave were collected by using questionnaire. Finding the influence between variables was carried out by using double linear regression test.
Result: The result of the study shows that work pressure and (p=0,038; B=0,262) and hierachical level (p=0,007; B=0,363) affect the intention to misbehave simultaneously.
Conclusion: Rumah Sakit Mata Undaan needs to measure the work load to avoid excessive work pressure. In addition, intervention has to be implemented to particular groups of worker with high hierarchical level to lessen tendency of intention to misbehave.Keywords: intention to misbehave, work pressure, hierarchical level
