This study focuses on the probability sampling where a certain population was identified and next, the sample was taken to the represent population. The correlation came in the form of the descriptive statistics through a close observation of the variables. Next, the hypothesis study through the testing on quantitative assumptions based on the relationship identified to answer the many questions emerging in the study. This study carries new outcomes with empirical evidence about the roles of work values with staff behaviour particularly in selected Islamic Institutions of Higher Education in Malaysia. In general, the outcome of the study indicated that the independent variable, which is Work Value had a relationship and influenced staff behaviour comprising of work satisfaction, commitment and the intention to quit. From several main findings, it can be seen that Work Values play an important role towards staff behaviour.
