Since the dawn of managerial sciences (Maier, 1955), the basis of professional performance has set the equation Work Performance = Competence x Motivation. Although brings back in a traditional logic of exchange employee-company, the new rights and duties on front of the company consist primarily in acquiring tools to enhance the contribution that the employee contributes individually and simultaneously put every worker to make this contribution. This paper aims to present a model of human resource management (and related instrumentation and methodology) based on two integrated factors: the development of skills of the worker and the support of his motivation to work.
