This study contributes to our understanding of the differences in work motivation between the public and private sectors. The nature and extent of differences between employees and organizations of the public and private sectors has long been a topic of academic debate. Although much of the debate has centered on structural differences between public and private organizations, there has also been a longstanding interest in the differences between public and private sector employees. We used the sample of 138 respondents in public sector and 221 respondents in private sector by using the Interval scale.
