Introduction: The objectives of our study were to determine providers by structure, to determine the providers by age, to make recommendations improve the motivation of the human resources and finally to determine the factors that influence the motivation of the personnel in the HGR of the city of Lubumbashi. Methodology: This is a cross-sectional analytical descriptive study of 152 care providers from four reference hospitals in Lubumbashi, sur-veyed prospectively, and based on a pre-established questionnaire. Data were analysed using SPSS 23. The statistical associations were evaluated by deter-mining the p-value whose threshold was fixed at 0.05, using the chi-square test. Results: In the majority, 27.63% of respondents were between 39 and 45 years old. The average age was 37.58 ± 10.64 years, the extremes with 21 and 69 years. There is no statistical relationship between on-the-job training and pro-vider motivation (p-value greater than 0.05). Chi2 = 3.9; p = 0.06. We noticed that 71.05% of respondents were in medical services with the majority being 15.79% in the Internal Medicine department. Conclusion: Improving working conditions is of paramount importance to improve the performance of healthcare providers and, consequently, the quality of care in our environment; thus, we believe that this should be done through the mechanization of health care providers, their provision of the risk premium and the encouragement of those who work overtime.
