This study intends to focus on the relationship between job enrichment and individual performance. A quantitative research is employed to explore the factors of job enrichment (Task Significance, Task Identity & Skill Variety) on individual performance in education institution. Data was collected from the faculties in private university using probability stratified random sampling techniques to measure the relationship between the three factors towards individual performance.
