    The basic task of managers is to establish and maintain the conditions required for joint activities of individuals aimed at efficient achievement of goals set by the organization they work for. An organization, be it non-profit or for-profit, will perform better and fulfil its mission more efficiently if its employees have a more positive outlook on different aspects of their work, but also on other work-related issues. It is therefore advisable to conduct frequent attitude surveys of both managers and non-managing employees. The results of such analyses could then be the basis for taking appropriate decisions and measures in the domain of human resource management. The research presented in this paper seeks to explore the differences in attitudes between these two employee categories regarding different aspects of material and non-material character. With this in mind, a sample was gathered of 360 respondents from the area of Osijek-Baranja County. Appropriate methods of descriptive and inferential statistics, as well as factor analysis were used to analyze the collected data.
