The article constitutes an attempt to present the determinants, which may exert certain influence on development of a complex employee motivational system by a 21st century organization. It includes an international study carried out in 14 countries, where 13 600 employees were researched in terms of mood and motivation for work. The author presents the current condition of the motivational system, functioning in European countries from the employees’ perspective. The article specifies expectations of employees towards the employers, allowing the author to determine the direction that should be analyzed by the 21st century organizations while developing the contemporary motivational system, which through its cohesion and complexity will motivate an employee internally and externally, therefore improve their effectiveness, what in a longer term may lead to effective realization of objectives assumed by the organization.
