In an organization, the availability of qualified staff is equivalent to the quality of the human resources and their outputs in the organization. This study aimed to analyze the professionalism of staffs in the Faculty of Education and Teacher Training, UIN SUSKA Riau. This study is essential because all system and processes in the faculty have been done by the staffs to achieve the vision and missions of the university. The study used a mixed method to triangulate data, where the qualitative ones explained the quantitative data. There were 43 respondents participated in the study, comprised of 20 (46.50%) males and 23 (53.50%) females. The instruments were validated in a pilot project, where the instruments’ reliability was assessed. The results show that the Cronbach’s alpha value reached 0.924, which means the instruments were excellent to be used in the study. There was no significant difference between the staffs’ professionalism based on their gender (p>0.01). We expected that the study results provide a suggestion for future staff recruitment in the faculty to be based on skills and proficiency, not on gender.
Education and teacher training was excellent. However, some improvements still could be made. In the aspects of work achievement, responsibility, and personality, aspects that could be improved were performing the given tasks effectively and efficiently, taking risks of the decisions that are made, and having self-control in various situation and condition. Meanwhile, in the aspects of cooperation, leadership, and obedience, aspects that could be improved were the willingness to accept a legal decision even if he or she disagrees, taking the decision quickly and appropriately, determining the work priority appropriately, having a nurturing attribute, and attending routine activities in the university.
The results show that there was no significant difference in staffs’ professionalism based on gender. In the topic of satisfaction at work, the opinions were split. Many staffs said that they were satisfied to receive jobs according to their skills. However, a considerable number of staffs also felt dissatisfied because the jobs and responsibilities are often unequal, and they are not involved in the events held by the faculty or university.
