A firm’s performance is in a direct link with the resources it involves, namely material, financial and human resources. If in the case of the material and financial resources the diagnosis and improvement processes are relatively simple, the human resources imply more complex issues. The first condition for a firm to obtain performance (in terms of human resources) is recruiting staff with appropriate qualifications. But conforming to this criterion does not lead automatically to the elimination of human resources issues. Currently, the vast majority of firms employ qualified personnel with experience in the field, yet many of them record an inadequate performance in human resources. This is due to staff motivation. In addition to employing qualified personnel with experience it is necessary that it be motivated adequately. But motivation can be achieved through a variety of forms, salary bonuses and benefits such as cell phones, cars, products at promotional prices, program flexibility and more, all having a different impact. This article explores the effectiveness of various manifestations of motivation, trying to determine its optimum structure. For this purpose an analysis was made of a firm that obtained a significant improvement in performance, while maintaining material and financial resources constant. The company applies many ways to motivate staff, so it was possible to analyze the impact of each one. Following this analysis an indicative hierarchy of motivational methods was created. The results of this study can be used and adapted in any companies that want to improve the quality of their human resources.
