Abstract

The topic of public service motivation is very actual. In several countries, including Slovakia, the public administration employees are divided into two major groups, which are civil servants and public servants. The civil servants are the state employees, while public servants are doing public service work. As we meet these two groups of employees in the public administration, who in terms of job and working conditions perform different tasks and receive different wages and benefits, we assumed, there is a difference in their motivation level. Therefore, the aim of this paper is to present a comparative analysis of motivation of civil servants and public servants in the local state administration of Slovakia. In order to carry out the research, one of the basic methods of quantitative research was chosen, the questionnaire survey. The results of the research are mainly highlighting the differences between two groups of employees working in the local state administration.
