This research used purposive sampling as a sampling technique. Samples of this study were 243 star rated hotel employees in Surabaya of the non-managerial level. Data collection was done by distributing a questionnaire. All returned questionnaires were analyzed using GCSA-based Structural Equation Modeling.
