Learning and Development is continuing the strategy of smaller modular-based training programs in line with business needs. This has resulted in programs of shorter duration and more specific focus. Learning and Development has also considerably increased partnering efforts with line areas in instructional design, particularly of statistical training. This has resulted in very well received programs such as the recently released analytical writing suite of modules. Major efforts have been made to support both managers and staff impacted by the Business Statistics Innovation Program. Learning and Development has implemented a national business approach which is resulting in greater consistency and a more strategic focus in learning activities delivered.

DESCRIPTION OF THE ABS REMUNERATION SYSTEM
The ABS salary system is two tiered. For 2002-03 there was a general increase of three per cent which included a component of productivity. All staff who performed capably or better received this salary increase together with a further salary increase based on their performance rating and position in their classification’s salary range. Both components contributed towards a permanent increase to employees’ salaries. These arrangements provided an average pay increase of 4.69 per cent across all levels in 2002-03.
The tables below provide information in respect of staff who received the additional performance based salary increase. For APS1 to EL2 staff, the total number of employees paid performance based salary increases decreased year on year, due to a higher proportion of staff being on the 80 per cent point in their classification’s salary range. Under the salary system in operation in the ABS at this time, a performance based salary increase could only be paid to an employee at the 80 per cent point in their salary range, if the employee was given the highest rating of outstanding.
