One of the elements of work ethics is the workplace environments that may represent job satisfaction, organizational factors and clients. Research evidences showed that, the element plays a vital role in producing positive employees. This has become the reason for employers to be champions in mastering all the important factors that lead to an employee’s high performance, especially those in the government sector where job performance is a crucial issue to be discussed. Thus, the purpose of this study is to examine the relationship between workplace environments and civil servants’ job performance in Shah Alam, Selangor. This survey based correlation study using a simple random sampling technique where 150 respondents are selected from 10 government offices.
