The present study investigated working memory capacity and the affect it has on employees to perform their job and to be innovative. The study also considered moderation of effort and stress to the relationship of working memory capacity to job performance and innovation. As cognitive ability has a strong relationship with working memory, this study aimed to determine if working memory is a stronger predictor of job performance and innovation than intelligence. This study did not find that working memory was statistically significant with job performance or innovation. Support was also lacking in any significant relationship with the moderation of effort or stress.
