After candidates recruited by the company, the human resource supervisor should face a very important problem, that how to motivate the employees to improve the integrate quality and work positivity. Motivational technique is one of the most effective ways. While motivation techniques are not difficult to master, they are often neglected, but it does not have to be that way (Weiss, 2011). The advance of motivation theories made human resource management entered a higher phase. Incentive mechanism is used to make employee’s inner motive power close to the company’s desires. According to the present situation of the enterprise and evaluation of employees’ productive process, managers can satisfy staffs’ different requirements by using effective incentive methods. Compare with other industries, we can find a significant feature in hospitality industry that is large numbers of employee mobility, the staff structure formed by a lot of part-time staff is one of the important reason. Although full-time and part-time workers work for the same company and same position, they still have some different. So according to their different characteristics, human recourse managers should distinguish different incentive methods for the full-time and part-time staffs,

2. The importance of motivation
The ability to motivate employees to improve productivity is a crucial super visional skill (Weiss, 2011). The objective of enterprise human resources development and management is mobilizing all positive factors for the employees and trying to dig the maximum potential of them. In reality, there are a lot human factors can effect human working behavior, such as social environment, working conditions, technical equipment and some personal qualities such as education, training, knowledge and experience.
