This study examined the impact of identity work on job performance in Melaka (Malaysia). Identity work refers to how individuals act or behave on the ground of work based self-concept when carrying out their work. A sample size of one hundred and fifty (150) respondents from different industries was selected to participate in this study that adopted five essential notions of the contemporary identities research that cover choice, stability, positivity, coherence and authenticity of Brown (2015) in examining their influence on job performance. The result showed positive significant relationship between identity works and job performance which positivity scored for the highest contribution as compared to other determinants. This study also enlightens the notion of a harmonised identity may lead to a strong identity work development. It is believed that consistency in roles and manners may create positive atmosphere in the organisation and boost the job performance and job engagement. Understanding of the human capital well-being will bring success to the organisation in terms of sustainability and profitability, at the same time the satisfaction of the employees will be taken care of too.
