Besides the material and financial resources, labor force is an essential factor in producing goods and services within economic entities. Most EU Member States have implemented in recent years performancebased pay systems. The most advanced countries that have introduced performance-based pay systems are Denmark, Sweden and the UK. In France, career development is closely linked to merit. Seniority represents the advancement on a higher degree and is counted only if expresses professional experience. Merit is the main criterion for a faster advancement on the superior levels of a degree or from a degree to another within the same institutional organization or from one organization to another. There is also the term of functional employee who is paid by other criteria, and it involves the jobs that are necessary to civil servants in the upper institutional organizations. This notion makes it possible to use public figures for the higher management positions in the central state administration or in decentralized services.
