The labor market has been and remains an inspiration source for many specialists’ analysis in the field. The added value of the present article consists in identifying the perception of Romanian citizens on the importance of work in their lives. Structured in two parts (part of the state of knowledge and research), the article is mainly aimed to present relevant aspects in terms of theoretical and practical on the labour market. The issues presented during the first part are founded on national and international literature, but also websites focused on work study. During the second part of the article is carried out an analysis in terms of the dynamic level of employment in recent years, but is also performed a marketing research on the perception of the Romanians on the importance of labor. The practical part of the article is a research focused on the analysis of secondary sources. The objectives of this scientific approach consists on the one hand in observing relevant indicators of the labor market in the 2007-2012 period, but also in identifying the extent to which gender equity exists in terms of labor, and on the other hand finding out Romanians perception regarding the lowering of labor role in their lives. The working hypothesis assumes that work plays an important role in people's lives by the fact that the result of its provision creates individual needs satisfaction (physiological needs and self-improvement needs).The most important results drawn as a result of research carried out shows that diminishing the work’s importance in Romanians’ life is not a benefic thing for entrepreneurs because it lowers the employee’s efficiency, and this is felt by the company's financial statements.
