Recently employers have been encountering and tackling the problem of employee motivation, since only motivated workers are
capable to work more efficiently, to ensure effective operations of the company and to create a healthy climate in the team. Furthermore,
adequately chosen motivation measures help to retain good specialists at the enterprise and to reduce the staff turnover. Thus
the attention and costs of the top management aimed at the increase of motivation always pay back. Staff motivation should be incorporated
into the general strategy of an enterprise. One of its key objectives should be consolidation of the company staff with a view
to achieving a common goal. The article explains the scheme of employee motivation tools, which meet the scientific requirements
prescribed by human resource management science and the modern conditions of production enterprise operations. Furthermore, it
offers methodological solutions for its practical application.
