Abstract: Today, no one doubts that employees are the key to success of any organization. It is immensely important to ensure that employees feel good at work, know their role and significance, and are well motivated. The article looks beyond employee motivation tools. It describes both the financial incentives such as: basic remuneration, bonuses (statutory, appreciation), commissions, rewards, and the non-financial, non-pecuniary (equipment, safety, training). Significant attention was paid to sense of shared responsibility, effect upon the work process, and responsibility. A number of activities enriching the work were defined, such as providing frequent feedback on work efficiency, ensuring development, personal work programme, flexible hierarchy of the management, result-dependent work assessments. Practical application of the theory of motivation and the principles of effective motivation were presented. The article not only looks beyond motivation tools, but also indicates their practical application. It should be considered worth reading both for the HR academic workers and the HRoriented practitioners.
