Barclays chases growth by doubling bonusesOn 19 Nov 2002 in Personnel Today Barclays Bank has doubled the amount of money it is investing in staffbonuses to help it meet its ambitious plans for growth. The bank aims to double its value every four years and has changed its bonusstructure in a bid to achieve this objective. All staff are eligible to receive a bonus connected to the company’sperformance against its key objectives. The bank also operates a profit share scheme that pays out up to 9 per centof staff salaries. Jeremy Orbell, executive director of reward at Barclays, told delegates atthe conference last week that the company’s new bonus structure has at leastdoubled the amount of money the company spends on bonuses. He revealed Barclays staff are now eligible for bonuses of up to 40 per centof salary in most cases – and as high as 100 per cent for senior staff –whereas in the past, it only used to award bonuses of between 10 and 20 percent of salary. Orbell said the improved bonus scheme was introduced to improve staffretention. “Retention of key people by direct compensation and/or otherequity is a key issue,” he said. “Cash is still king. It is very important that the annual bonus isflexible and linked to performance criteria.” Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos.
