Measuring and evaluating performance, and – even more – exploring the factors influencing performance is of key importance both in the case of business enterprises and non-profit- oriented public organizations. Wellknown economists and businessmen try to improve the measuring methods. Measuring the fufilment of requirements regarding public organizations is typically made by analysing the financial management, but obviously it is not enough. The objective of the public sector is to create public goods which have no obvious and marketable value. Measuring the performance of man who plays a key role in value creation is important because – in addition to increasing the efficiency of the organization – he also has an important role in motivation. The paper reviews the performance measurement of staff working in the public sector organizations and, based on a survey by a Hungarian university, evaluate the attitudes of the public sector staff concerning performance evaluation.
