Abstract "This paper looks at the conditions that influence employee motivation at the organizational and individual level in profit and nonprofit organizations. The large presence of international organizations in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) offered a unique opportunity to test the hypothesis that profit organizations have more sophisticated human resource (HR) systems than nonprofit organizations, which could not be confirmed. At the level of individual motivation factors the paper found differences but also some consistencies between individual motivation factors for staff of both organizations. To contribute to an under-researched area the paper further looked into differences in individual motivation factors of national and international staff in a nonprofit organization. The findings confirm differences based on origin. The results of the study have practical implications for HR managers in nonprofit organizations since the paper highlights possibilities how to use the HR system to improve employee motivation."
