The main purpose of the author’s research is the formation of economic mechanism of occupational mobility on the basis of modeling decisions on the effective wage. Formation of an effective wage by a representative firm should consider all employee’s abilities to maintain his efforts on high-level and eliminate shirking. The growth of the current employee’s salary must always take into account its amount in the same occupational group at other enterprises and wage in that occupational group to which the worker can escape. If the company sets effective wages for its employees, the labor of these workers will also be effective. The results of the survey will be useful to economists of HR departments for establishing effective system of staff remuneration.
