The results of data processing explained that there was no relationship between WFH and technology-mediated behavior (P-Value = 0.297; T-Statistic = 1.043). A different yield of WFH data processing with productivity. It was found positive and significant influence but mediated partially competitive by technology. The path coefficient value of the direct relationship between WFH and productivity is 0.206 (P-Value 0.034; T-Statistic = 2.132), that the indirect relationship between WFH and productivity is mediating by the technology of 0.353. The limitation of this research is that it is only carried out in the FEB environment, not yet in a comprehensive manner at the "Veteran" National Development University, Yogyakarta
