Bonus excites PSC

CIVIL servants should take advantage of the new performance-based bonus system that will be introduced from January 1.

Public Service Commission permanent secretary Parmesh Chand said they were excited about the new performance-based bonus system and other allocations for civil servants made in the budget which included a 10 per cent pay increase for unestablished workers and a minimum salary of $10,000 for established staff.

"The adjustment in pay is quite positive and it's quite exciting," he said.

Mr Chand said civil servants should take it upon themselves now to work harder and do much more than expected of them.

"Civil servants need to continue to work hard," he said. "The performance-based pay system is more important than the pay increase. If they work hard, meet targets and objectives and deliver against expectations they will get bonuses. That is the key message, much more than whatever used to be the case of automatic pay rise, this is more rewarding because they will get rewarded for their hard work. "

Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama in his budget address, said the introduction of the performance-based bonus system underscored the government's fundamental belief that individuals should be rewarded on merit and accomplishment.
