Project:
Refining Public Service Motivation Theory: The Mediating Roles of Person-Job and Person-Organization Fits in Individual Performance 01.02.2011 to 31.01.2015
General project description
Public service motivation (PSM), the motivation to serve the public good, is an important factor in the performance of public organizations. However, the relationship between an individual’s PSM and performance is unclear. Moreover, the importance of PSM for the various occupational groups in the public sector is also uncertain. We propose to study whether person-job and person-organization fits mediate the relationship between PSM and performance for several occupational groups in the public sector. The proposed study aims at filling gaps in the knowledge on the relationship between PSM and performance. A quantitative research design is proposed to test hypotheses.
