Our performance appraisal process now links to reward and recognition.
A decision on remuneration regarding Additional Responsibility Allowance (ARA), honorarium, Continuous Professional Development (CPD) and incremental pay increases can now be made as part of this process.
If a manager wishes to consider an ARA they should complete an ARA/Honoraria business case for approval, recording its submission in the appraisal paperwork with a ‘YES’, ‘NO’, or ‘N/A’.
The CPD procedure should be followed where it is agreed that CPD payments should be continued/applied for, recording its submission in the appraisal paperwork with a ‘YES’, ‘NO’, or ‘N/A’.
If an employee is not at the top of their pay scale, any recommendation should be made in the appropriate box for an incremental raise.
Comments on the career aspirations section should be recorded with any recommendation for involvement and assessment in the next development centre being recorded.
