How is my pay increase determined?

Pay increases for the eligible individuals will be based on ABCA financial performance and employee personal goals. The financial results will determine the amount of funds that are available for distribution. The achievement of your personal goals will form the basis of how much pay you receive combined with an objective assessment of all other relevant factors that will include (but are not restricted to) how you achieved your goals and the impact of any events during the performance year. 

The table below summarises the pay arrangements.

Please remember that the outcome of any pay award must be as a result of the performance of the individual based upon an assessment of their personal goals and job-related criteria. Decisions during the creation of personal goals must not be influenced by an employee’s race, sex, religion/belief, disability, marital or civil partnership status, age, sexual orientation, gender identity.

Personal Goals (KPI's)

The line manager is responsible for setting 3-6 personal goals for each of their direct reports. These goals must be achievable and agreed ready for the start of the new financial year.

 

Personal goals (KPI's) should be quantifiable and must fulfil the following criteria:

  • Reflect the key areas of focus for the role and/or functional area.

  • Be captured using the SMART methodology.

  • Include measures of success at threshold, target and stretch.

  • Be recorded at the beginning of the financial year and captured as appropriate.

 

Ratings & Reviews

Please visit our People Management page for guidance on how to manage your teams performance.

We use a simple three point rating scale:

 

Exceeding expectations

You've made an amazing contribution to our business and for our customers. Thank you.

Someone who has delivered above and beyond the expectations of their role for much of the review period.

Who is a role model within the team

Achieving expectations

Thanks for all your work. You've made a difference to our customers, our business and our people.

Someone who has helped the team deliver its goals and achieved target on their personal goals

Who has sometimes gone beyond expectations. Who will have areas where some development could help them become even better.

Not meeting expectations

You'll know that you've been underperforming. And your manager will have discussed how to improve with you.

Someone who isn't consistently meeting the standards expected of their role.

Behaviours

Behaviours are a very important aspect of the appraisal process. Employees should treat others with respect, courtesy, tact, and friendliness and actively attempt to be helpful towards others. Accepts criticism, is open to new ideas, and handles conflict constructively and diplomatically. Consistently able to obtain the cooperation of others. Works through conflict for positive solutions/results. 

 

Behaviour-based performance includes the employees specific actions displayed while on the job. For example, the employee was consistently ten minutes late to a scheduled meeting several weeks in a row. This behaviour is a specific action of what should not be exhibited on the job. Employee behaviour can have a adverse impact on the outcome of their appraisal.

Calibration

Performance review calibration is a process in which managers discuss their proposed employee ratings with other managers. The goal is to find common ground that makes consistent employee performance evaluations possible.
