The motivation of public servants has become crucial in the shaping of ways and methods of the public sector reform. The goal of this study is to test a novel PSM (Public Service Motivation) model of the Hungarian public sector by adapting the New Public Passion research framework. The novel model tests the predictive relationship between PSM and Calling. By using an archive database of the ISSP 2015, four hypotheses were tested, and verified one of them. Results demonstrate that a PSM model could in fact be adapted to the Hungarian public sector. Comparing the public sector and private sector employees, significant difference was found between the effect of organizational commitment on work satisfaction. In the public sector employee model, Calling had direct and indirect effects on work satisfaction.
