Job performance, task performance, emotional intelligence, Contextual performance


It is believed that the emotional intelligence can significantly affect the job performance dimension to include task performance and contextual performance of doctor’s work in hospitals. This paper uses the quantitative and deductive approach to establish the relationship between above-mentioned factors for medical practitioners by a cross-sectional method by including suitable number of medical doctors in the selected area for meaningful results. The data collected in form of questionnaire is analyzed and a positive relation is found between emotional intelligence and job performance after correlation analysis. Emotional intelligence is found to significantly impact medical practitioners’ job, task and contextual performances, the latter two being strongly affected. The reliability test for suitability of the dataset reveals that the results can be applied to larger population. The regression analysis indicates that there is significant and positive relationship between the factors of emotional and job performance.
