The impact of socialisation on graduates’ public service motivation : a mixed method study
Puchala, Naomi M. & Waterhouse, Jennifer M. (2010) The impact of socialisation on graduates’ public service motivation : a mixed method study. In Proceedings of the 14th Annual Conference of the International Research Society for Public Management (IRSPMXIV), University of Berne, Bern, Switzerland.
There is a renaissance of interest in public service motivation in public management research. Moynnihan and Pandey (2007) assert that public service motivation (PSM) has significant practical relevance as it deals with the relationship between motivation and the public interest. There is a need to explore employee needs generated by public service motivation in order to attract and retain a high calibre cadre of public servants (Gabris & Simo, 1995). Such exploration is particularly important beyond the American context which has dominated the literature to date (Taylor, 2007; Vandenabeele, Scheepers, & Hondeghem, 2006; Vandenabeele & Van de Walle, 2008).
