Work Culture of Tsanawiyah Madrasah During COVID-19 in Bandar Lampung City


A Madrasa’s work culture values can influence not only emotional involvement, normative involvement, and job satisfaction, but also physical, emotional, and cognitive participation in the workplace. The purpose of this study was to determine and analyze the implementation of the 5 values of work culture at the Madrasah Tsanawiyah in Bandar Lampung. This research method is descriptive and qualitative in nature, and collects primary and secondary data using observation, interviews, and documentation. Upon collection, data analysis was carried out by reducing, displaying, and verifying the data so that it could be concluded at the end of the analysis. The research locations are as follows: Madrasah Tsanawiyah 1 Bandar Lampung, Madrasah Tsanawiyah 2 Bandar Lampung, Madrasah Tsanawiyah Muhammadiyah, and Private Madrasah Tsanawiyah in Bandar Lampung. The results explain that the implementation of a work culture by the Ministry of Religion is successful in Madrasah Tsanawiyah 1, Bandar Lampung. The Madrasah Tsanawiyah private schools in Bandar Lampung City are not yet optimal and will be improved. The success of implementing the teacher’s example must be carried out in collaboration between the school and parents, because parents are the main figures in the formation of their children’s character, and children will therefore act according to the examples applied during the COVID-19 pandemic.
