Abstract: The general purpose of this paper is to present WHAT motivates militants serving the Greek army to behave and perform better. Suggestions are based on a survey carried out in 4 different regions in Greece and determine the fundamental elements on which motivation should rest in Greek army sector. To this end, we will initially present the notion of work-motivation and cite representative theories, both early and contemporary ones, in order to become familiar with what motivates employees and how much while stating, that no theory can stand-alone and explain or drive to outstanding results in the organizational context. Subsequently and through the first part of our survey (35 questions), the cultural characteristics (norms and values) of the Greek military environment will be presented, in comparison to those of Greek society. The results of the nine cultural dimensions set and examined by the Global Leadership and Organizational Behavior Effectiveness (GLOBE) study will be taken as point of reference. Finally, based on findings from the second part of our research (10 closed-ended and 2 open-ended questions), we will examine the pillars where motivation in the field of Greek defense should rest or derive from.
