The concerted efforts by ABS Learning and Development to align the training opportunities offered with workplace needs has continued this year and is reflected in the increase in the number of staff attending training opportunities and a reduction in the number of attendance days required to deliver that training. The trend has been towards fewer days duration for programs which are designed to meet specific business needs. With an increase in the involvement of subject matter experts in instructional design and course facilitation in both statistical training and information technology streams, there has been a stronger delivery of skills required in the workplace. Again this year the ABS has sponsored a Graduate Certificate in Statistics - a professional tertiary qualification specifically designed to develop the statistical skills base of the ABS.

New modes of delivery have resulted in learning opportunities being offered as online learning programs and computer based training programs. These attendances are not included in the above figures.

A lower intake during 2001-02 has reduced the number of induction and orientation places required.

DESCRIPTION OF THE ABS REMUNERATION SYSTEM

The ABS remuneration system is two tiered. There is a percentage based general increase (2.75 per cent in 2001-02) which includes a component of productivity. All staff who perform capably or better receive this salary increase. Employees can receive a further salary increase based upon their performance rating and depending where they are in the salary range for their APS level. Both components are a permanent increase to an employee’s salary. These arrangements provided an average pay increase of 4.49 per cent across all levels in 2001-02. The overall increase in the ABS salary budget is about 3.6 per cent because there are more departures at the higher end of the salary scales and promotions are at the lower end of the salary scales.

The tables below provide information in respect of staff who received the additional performance based salary increase.

As prescribed by the ABS Certified Agreement, employees on the specified maximum for each salary range who are rated as outstanding are eligible for a non-superannuable bonus of $500 in each year for which an outstanding rating is achieved. In the July 2001 remuneration process 37 APS6 employees and one APS4 employee received a bonus payment of $500. The aggregate bonus payment for the ABS as a whole was $19,000.


REWARD AND RECOGNITION

The ABS operates a reward and recognition scheme to recognise exceptional one-off achievements by individuals or workgroups. Rewards under the scheme may be in the form of certificates, hospitality (such as workgroup lunches), prepaid vouchers and cash bonuses. Total expenditure on the scheme in 2001-02 was $146,031.
