The Effect of Recruitment and Training on Performance: A Case Study of Indonesia National Police Personnel in the United Nations Mission in Sudan


This descriptive and explanatory research explored the problem of the performance of Indonesia National Police personnel who are members of the United Nations mission in Sudan. The purpose of this study was to examine the influence of recruitment and training, mediated by motivation, on the performance of these personnel. The sample of the research consisted of 140 Indonesia National Police personnel who were members of the 11th Indonesian FPU Task Force in Darfur, Sudan. Data were obtained through a questionnaire, from respondents selected by random sampling methods. Structural Equation Modelling was used to analyze the data using the Smart PLS program. The results showed that recruitment influenced motivation and performance; training influenced performance and motivation; and motivation influenced performance. Motivation motivated partial mediation of the effect of recruitment on performance; and motivation motivated partial mediation of the effect of training on performance. Therefore, to maximize performance, the process of recruiting and training Indonesia National Police personnel who will be on duty at the United Nations mission should start from building motivation from within these personnel.
