Work Commitment, Organizational Culture, Education

Humans are an important factor in the development and progress of an organization. Because only humans have the ability to think critically (critical thinking), communicate (communication), collaborate (collaboration) and be creative (creativity). These human capabilities are needed by the organization in analyzing positions, analyzing organizational needs, managing existing resources (Man, Money and Material), making plans and other functions. In addition to this, organizations also need people who are dedicated, have good performance and are able to bind themselves to the vision and mission of the organization for the achievement of the goals of the organization.
