Performance Payment Policy: Eligible Employees

​Our Commitment

Queensland Rail operates a residual Performance Payment Scheme (“Scheme”) for Eligible Employees to recognise and reward exceptional performance in a given financial year.  This Scheme functions on a grandfathered arrangement and as such, any contract issued after 1 July 2019 will not contain performance payment eligibility.

What we will do

To meet this commitment, the Queensland Rail Board will:

  • ensure the Scheme is clearly aligned with the strategic and operational goals of Queensland Rail outlined in the five-year strategic plan and annual operational plan and with Queensland Rail’s Values and Behaviours;
  • apply the rules of the Scheme in a robust and consistent manner with organisational and individual key performance indicators (including stretch targets) approved by the Board for the relevant financial year;
  • critically assess organisational and individual performance against prescribed key performance indicators (including stretch targets); and
  • consider on an annual basis the achievement of the prescribed key performance indicators (KPIs) and, if appropriate, approve the subsequent distribution of any performance payments assessed against those indicators.
