The study used sampling techniques in which a total sample size of 45 respondents were interviewed. The study employed ordinary Least Square Techniques to estimate the coefficients of the parameters. The result show that staff education has a positive influence to the organization performance by 1.510 while Staff Job Satisfaction has coefficient of 0.275 and significance value of 0.000. The Service Delivery has influence by 0.915. However, the staff attitude has a positive coefficient of 0.047 but has no influence to the organizational performance because it has a significance value of 0.441, which is greater than 5%. Therefore, staff education, staff job satisfaction and service deliver have an impact which implies that when they change per unit influence the organizational performance by magnitude of coefficient of the respective parameter taken into account other variable that were being used in the model remain unchanged.
