The article focuses on the performance-related pay introduced by the Kent County Council in England for 25,000 staff members. According to reward manager Colin Miller, all council employees, other than teaching staff, received an appraisal rating of between 1 and 5, based on their total contribution. Each point awarded pushes the employee half a point further up their pay scale. The total contribution of staff is measured against the criteria, including meeting objectives, their behaviour and their personal development.
