In this research, dividend policy means dividends paid proportion to shareholders. Earnings are estimated by four financial ratios namely contributed capital ratio, prior year-earnings, sales growth, and return on assets.Research Design & Methods: The sample is taken according to purposive sampling with the criteria of the consistency of the company listed in the SRI-KEHATI Index during 2014-2017 and routinely distributes annual dividends, finally 14 companies are taken from 33 companies. Panel data were examined with the assistance of Eviews 9.0 software. Data collected from the company's financial statements and measured using a formula adopted from earlier research. Findings: Empirical results found that capital ratio, prior year-earnings, sales growth, and corporate taxes did not significantly affect the dividend payout ratio. While return on assets has a positive effect on dividend payout ratio. Companies that grow well will need more funds to cover their financing and try to keep up their income proportion, one way is to pay a constant dividend, lower, or even zero dividends. Limitations & Recommendations: This finding recommends that investors should pay attention to company profitability by measuring return on assets. Future research can use the new stock index’s constituents such as IDX High Dividend 20 and include other factors that indicated to determine dividend policy. Contribution & Value Added: This result contributes to the financial literature, especially related to the dividend policy of public listed companies in Indonesia.

Objective: This study discusses the importance of job crafting and workplace spirituality on the impact of role overload, which in turn leads to increase job performance. There is a limited previous research on job crafting and workplace spirituality, especially in the microfinance institutions. Research Design & Methods: Our research seeks to gain further understanding of the overall work overload occurrence, so we choose samples from microfinance institutions that can be expected to show excessive roles because of character of their work that is frequently in high pressure. Data collected from 119 questionnaires were analyzed using PLS-SEM with SMART-PLS software. Findings: The results showed that employees experienced work overload of both quantitative overload (feeling of any more work than the available time allocation) and qualitative overload (sense that the work requires skills, abilities and knowledge beyond the capacity of the individual), yet failed to show the role of workplace spirituality as a moderating variable. Implications & Recommendations: Future research can be carried out at larger institutions or industries and a larger number of samples for the sake of generalization and work overload occurence related to certain industrial situations. Contribution & Value Added: Our main contributions lie on the proposition that job crafting and workplace spirituality play a role in eliminating the impact of work overload. This study reinforces role evidence of job crafting and workplace spirituality on the impact of role overload.
