(a) Excludes on-the-job training. (b) Comprises full time and part time staff at their full time equivalent. (c) Operative staff number includes 611 Data Processing Centre non-ongoing staff who received on-the-job training as a primary source of skilling.

There were no large scale or organisational-wide training initiatives undertaken in 2003-04. This, combined with the falling staff numbers, has resulted in lower training figures. Training courses continue to be reduced in size due to more rigorous training needs analysis, and in response to client needs. Major redevelopment activities both in statistical and non-statistical training have continued throughout the year, and a number of new courses have been added to the curriculum. Learning and Development staff have expanded their range of services to include business consultancy. This approach has also seen less reliance on training solutions and a more diverse range of approaches to performance improvement being implemented.

Description of the ABS Salary System

As a result of the ABS Certified Agreement 2003-2006 the salary arrangements for ABS employees were simplified during 2003-04. For the 2003-04 financial year there were two components to employees' salary increases - a general increase and an increase based on performance. Both result in an increase in the employee's base salary.

The general increase was 2.8 per cent (for all employees other than those at Executive Level 2). The general increase included a productivity component. All employees whose performance was rated as 'fully effective' or 'outstanding' received the general increase together with a second component, which was a salary increase based on that performance rating. As a result of a change in the timing for salary increases for Executive Level 2 employees the general increase in 2003-04 was 1.75 per cent. In 2003-04 annual salary reviews resulted in increases being paid to APS1 to EL1 employees in July 2003, to EL2 employees in October 2003 and to SES employees in January 2004. In future years increases will be paid in July for APS1 to EL2 employees and January for SES employees.

During 2003-04, the maximum of the APS1 to EL2 salary ranges were increased by the general salary increase. The minimum of each range was increased by a larger amount in order to collapse the range between minimum and maximum salary points. This has resulted in salary ranges of 10 per cent from minimum to maximum for APS1 to EL1 employees and 14 per cent for EL2 employees. The old ranges were 15 per cent and 21 per cent respectively. The minimum salary point for SES employees was increased by 2.8 per cent - the general salary increase.

The table below provides information in regard to the performance pay component only of the salary increases paid in 2003-04.

In addition to increases in base salary APS1 to EL2 employees at or within 1 per cent of the top of their salary range, and rated as outstanding, receive up to 1 per cent (0.75 per cent for EL2 employees for 2003-04 only) of their current salary paid as a one off bonus, with a minimum payment of $500. During the 2003-04 financial year the total amount paid in bonus payments was $56,716 to 108 employees.

Reward and Recognition

The ABS operates a Reward and Recognition Scheme to recognise exceptional one-off achievements by individuals and workgroups. Rewards may be made in the form of certificates, hospitality (such as workgroup lunches), prepaid vouchers and cash bonuses. Total ABS expenditure for the scheme in 2003-04 was $153,247.
