The current paper aims to present the topic of performance management in the leisure industry, focusing mainly on human resources performance. Considering the particularities that differentiate the leisure industry from any other, it is of great importance to understand how and when does performance appear, what are its preconditions and consequences, and in addition how can performance be managed given the environment. All of these are essential for a good management of the leisure business overall, but also for a good people management, acknowledging the strong correlation between motivated employees, higher individual performance and consequently higher organizational performance. Considering the above mentioned scope, the article is structured as a theoretical study, providing a literature analysis and introducing certain hypotheses that could afterwards be developed into a further qualitative and quantitative research, in order to deepen the research.
