The vast majority of companies, regardless of their size or location, agree that the employees are their most valuable asset. Thus, great efforts are put into the constant development and support of employees with the intent of increasing their productivity and by doing so, becoming more valuable to the companies. The present paper wishes to provide a better understanding of how Romanian managers support their employees, by offering a detailed image on how the behaviour and leadership style adopted by managers influences the behaviour of employees. It is extremely important for managers not only to offer their support to others but also to provide them with guidance and offer their expertise with the intent of facilitating the constant professional development of individuals and to ensure that the employees are using their specific abilities and competencies in the most suited manner for the organization in which their work. At the same time employees need to be clearly shown the outcomes both of their general work and also their specific activities together with the rewards that they will gain as a direct result of their work. These elements are crucial in ensuring an objective motivation of individuals and in making them understand that they are a small part of a greater mechanism and that their work is paramount in ensuring the overall success. Not last, managers should state, in a clear manner, the work standards expected from the employees in order to allow them to better organize their work towards meeting these standards.
