- The study literatures on Public Service Motivation (PSM) have grown tremendously over the past two decades. However there are still many questions remain unanswered in regards to antecedents for the PSM. Besides, most of PSM theories often ignore cultural dimensions in their analysis. This study was designed to investigate the application of the PSM theories in Indonesia, specifically in Padang, West Sumatera. The objective of this study is to test the existing PSM argument related to the antecedents for PSM levels among employees. Using the t-test and Anova on responses by 471 respondents of public sector employees, this study tested the antecedents for PSM among the employees. The findings of this study indicated that some of socio-demographic, social institution, and organisational factors are significantly correlated to the level of PSM, but some of them are not. The results of this study imply that PSM theory is not cross-culturally viable
