    In a society affected by the economic and financial crisis and in the increasingly competitive environment it is important for any organization to adopt an organizational strategy to reduce costs without affecting its performance and market competitiveness. Human resources in a knowledge-based organization are increasingly affected by occupational stress, a phenomenon that generates lack of productivity. Technological development, scientific organization of production, development of the means of communication and transportation and the tightening of the competitive environment creates stress, which affects the ability of employees and managers to work efficiently, while also generating high costs for the organization as a whole. In this context, managerial attitudes and strategies need to invest, for the sake of the organisational welfare, in motivation, increased determination and coordination of the human resource, as the only resource capable of generating organizational effectiveness or non-effectiveness. Thus, in addition to economic and financial investment, in order to avoid the effects of occupational stress, there is a great need for a managerial "investment” defined by all the actions dealing with human resource coordination / motivation and by adequate managerial attitude, with the ultimate goal of attaining professional effectiveness and high level of organizational performance.
