Abstract: The aim of the research is to identify and characterize in more detail the factors that influence the effect of performance measurement and evaluation and reward systems on work effort and performance. In doing so, the influence not only on the level of work effort but also on its direction in line with overall company objectives is assessed. For the empirical research, a qualitative research method in the form of a case study in a selected company was chosen. For data collection, methods of document analysis and structured in-depth interviews were used. A total of 26 structured interviews were conducted. The aim of the structured interviews was to understand in detail the impact, perceptions and implications of the performance evaluation and reward systems used. It has been shown that when assessing the effectiveness of the systems mentioned, it is necessary to consider not only the characteristics of the performance measurement system, but also the way in which the information is used in management - the characteristics of the way in which performance is managed. The degree of link between the performance measurement system and the reward system was found to be a significant factor influencing the interactive vs. diagnostic use of the performance measurement system. At the same time, the research further characterized performance measurability as an important contextual factor influencing the effectiveness of performance rewards.
