In this paper we present the relationship between the following variables: job motivation, job satisfaction and job commitment. For the purposes of the study a questionnaire was designed and administered to 311 full and part time teachers of the Technological Institute of Thessaloniki in Greece. The methods used for the analysis of data were the implicative statistical analysis and the principal components analysis. The results of the study coincide with the literature review as they indicate that low motivation and lack of job satisfaction are factors that affect teacher’s commitment and attitude towards the Institute. On the contrary teachers with strong ambitions that are satisfied with their job and the working environment are putting a maximum effort in their work. Also the analysis indicates that demographic and socio-economic factors have a strong influence on job commitment. We hope that the study will help the management of the human resources what motivates and satisfies teachers in higher education and hence makes them more productive and happy with their work.
