Frequently asked questions u My job has changed significantly. Should it be reviewed? u What if my manager doesnt agree with the result?
Annual Staff Compensation Program u all annual increases are based on performance u there are no scale / general / COLA increases u job-values are increased by an amount determined by the PACSC after reviewing market movement, CPI, funding and other relevant data
Performance Appraisals u conducted annually u forwarded to Human Resources, normally by mid-March u paper copy held for 3 years u ratings are from 1 to 5 u evaluators may add a.5 increment if performance exceeds one category but does not achieve the next.
How do performance ratings correspond to salary increases? Performance ratings from 1 to 5 represents a position in the salary range or a performance goal over a career % % % % % For complete descriptions of each rating see the Performance Appraisal documentation on the Human Resources website
Salary Range MINIMUM JOB- VALUE MAXIMUM 80% 100% 120% Compa-Ratio is the relationship of your salary to the job-value, expressed as a percentage.
Individual Salary Increases The departmental merit pool. Salary increases Salary increases have two components: a) a basic increase b) a supplementary increase Staff members Staff members receive salary increases based on their performance appraisal rating and their position in the salary range (compa-ratio).
Some additional comments: u basic increase may not be changed by department head. less u staff members with compa-ratios over their performance goals will receive less than the range adjustment. more u staff members with compa-ratios less than their performance goals will receive more than the range adjustment u system has been designed to mitigate the effects of lavish and stingy evaluators. u staff members at performance goals are not eligible to receive supplementary increases.
