Since the beginning of the twentieth century, Western societies had realized the seriousness of the issue of work stress, having exceeded the results and impact of these pressures from the scope of the employee and the organization to address to move to the courts, which became the issue punitive resolutions and impose heavy fines were unexpected (Mureau, 2012, p: 79).

Since the functions exercised by the organizations vary in the degree of exposure to the pressure; and the fact that each function creates a distinctive and unique to members belonging to her requests, this is creating a certain level of pressure on the members of the single function (shamans, 2006, p. 9).

We take the subject of the pressures of work or the so-called pressure Position share of attention by researchers, these pressures represent a significant cost to the employee and the organization and community health, regulatory and economic terms, Vdgot work has psychological effects and physiological (physical harmful), and have a negative impact on the behaviors of individuals and the career performance level and lead to negative phenomena, including the decline in a sense of belonging, and the high rates of absenteeism, job leakage, and increase the proportion of errors (Hijazi, 2002, p 425).

It is known that it is difficult to find a job without pressure, but the intensity of these pressures vary from one job to another; and according to different sources that make up this pressure, differing response to these pressures from one individual to another ratio; because of the different functional differences between them and their reactions attitudes toward the compressor (Askar, 2008, p. 7 (.

Thus, to achieve satisfaction supported by motivating workers affects their sense of joy and happiness and satisfaction at work performance. The successful organization are those exploiting the efficiency of its employees and their effectiveness, following the best way to raise the professionalism they have and the administration to choose the active elements of the organization and linking objectives goals for personal factors that reflect positively on their performance (Altwaijri, 2008, p. 42).

It could be argued that the successful organization is one that is developing a system of incentives is able to have a positive impact on the performance of employees and the form in which it increases the degree of loyalty to the organization and help the organization to grow and survive.
