Content: The aims of this study is to capture the relationship between motivational sources (typology proposed by Leonard, Beauvais and Scholl, 1999), achievement motivation (Schuler, Thornton and Frintrup, 2000) and job satisfaction (Spector and Lamond, 2002) to identify motivational features that can help optimize performance and job satisfaction in a specific organizational environment like military field. Whilst there are some general rules which apply to everyone, most people are usually motivated by what they perceive as rewards and there is different ways to get them committed and motivated. An evolving socio-economic context creates prerequisites for continuous readjustments of strategies to motivate employees in order to obtain professional performance and job satisfaction. The question arises: "what are the best motivating factors, how they can be identified and how they can be developed in the nowadays military organizations?" The results of this study, based on responses  of 100 employees who work in a military institution in Romania allowed us to find out their main motivators and satisfaction sources in order to develop new organizational strategy for increasing job motivation, job satisfaction, job performance and job commitment of the employees.
Keywords: achievement motivation, motivational sources, job satisfaction
