As we approach the mid -point in the performance year it is important that you are aware of your Q2 rating, ensure a 121 with your LM is in your diary and that you understand what is expected of you in Q3 and Q4. If you are in a sales role it is particularly important that your DPR rating is based on a basket of measures. The PM agreement is clear, it is your achievement against a range of objectives that determines your DPR rating, not just your achievement against sales targets

Prospect met with BT Wholesale HR this week to discuss Performance Management (PM) concerns raised by members via the Prospect Helpdesk and our PM feedback channel email@example.com.

Pay and bonus review
People are starting to get their pay and bonus review letters. If you want to check out the terms of the agreement on pay or have a question then have a look at our website www.prospect.org.uk/BTpayreview.
We are aware that members will have started to receive the outcome of their selection process, and subsequently may have received a redundancy notice. Given the volume of queries we anticipate, Johanna Baxter (Negotiations Officer) has arranged to be in Hibu and is available to see members between 11:00am and 5:00pm May 28th 2014 for a drop in surgery in Room 9.24.
Further to the success of the Love What You Do trial, Telefónica has decided to roll out the changes to salary/bonus structure across the Retail management population. Telefonica’s proposals in relation to retail pay will increase the basic pay of those employees in RCG1/10, RCG2/20 and RCG3/30 grades by 10% with a proportionate reduction in commission. Please find the final offer letter here. Implementing these changes will prove expensive for the company due to increased basic salaries, National Insurance contributions and pension payments but there is a strong belief this is the right thing to do in terms of moving to a service led culture and excellent customer experience in store.
Prospect and Telereal Trillium have started the annual pay review and reward discussions.
Members will be aware of the announcements in BT Ireland and BT Enterprises that those units have confirmed they have not met the threshold on their bonus scorecard and therefore bonus payments will not be paid in June 2014 for the year 2013/2014. The units affected (BT Ireland, BT Enterprises Core & Ventures, BT Expedite, BT Fleet and BT Conferencing ) have taken a decision to make discretionary payments.

We have made a number of points and representations about those proposals many of which have been incorporated and most areas are now moving into the selection phase.
Prospect has today published the responses by the two campaign groups to the questions drawn up by the Scotland Committee and its working groups.
