A significant amount of research has been conducted into the factors and facets that contribute to effective performance in organizations. While much of the early research into performance focused on the issues of performance management system. However, in this study, the focused objective is the impacts of employee's self-efficacy and commitment. It was to investigate whether they have any influence on job performance; and whether age, education level, position, job tenure plays a moderate role in the relationship between employee's self-efficacy, commitment and job performance. The literature review provided detail description of former researches on how these variables influence job performance. It used questionnaires as the main study instrument. The sample comprises staffs, supervisors and middle managers in Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia. A sample of 250 questionnaires were distributed, however, only 234 questionnaires have been returned and collected for statistic analysis. Ten hypotheses were constructed and tested using SPSS program of multiple regression and hierarchical regression. The research has discovered that employee's self-efficacy and commitment have a positive impact on job performance. Age, education level, job tenure and job sort do not play a moderate role in the relationship between self-efficacy or commitment and job performance.
