    Crisis periods are creating acute tensioned situations in the relationships between people, not only in the organizations that are in need to stint their activities, but also in institutions that are not so affected by the crisis. This happens because in the new context we can find a lot of apprehensions in the minds of citizens, especially regarding the labor force. In these conditions the Human Resources management is facing difficulties regarding limitation decisions for a part of the personnel. On the other hand, the economic crisis has also some positive aspects for the Human Resources management because it allows the existence an adequacy filter, a constancy of employees, the reinforcement of discipline in institutions, a growth of productivity, an increase in people‟s responsibilities and even the attenuation of income pressure. All of these things can be capitalized for the interest of institutions. At the same time the crisis can be a rupture between the old and the new, it can stimulate creativity, it can determine the reorganization and increase the efficiency of activities, it can lead to an orientation towards new technologies, methods and products highly demanded on the market. This paper analyzes and estimates the attitudes manifested by Romanian Human Resources managers that are facing the current socio-economic crisis. It shows what people can do to decrease the effects of the crisis and also their perception regarding the manifestation forms of the economic crisis, the changes that are necessary for a good administration of the human resources which would lead to a minimum loss in this area, so that the closure of the crisis should not be accompanied by an absence of human resources.
