Our Leave is not a KPI

Remove "reduce annual and long service leave" from all KPI dashboards and halt any further plans to roll this performance measure out.

Why is this important?

CBA have added a new KPI: To meet this KPI employees must reduce their annual and long service leave balances.

Annual leave and long service leave are entitlements of employment, they're earned, and to link taking that leave to employee performance at the Bank is not appropriate or fair.

CBA have plenty of options if they want to ask staff to reduce the amount of leave they’ve got saved up - to make this a KPI is not fair.

What staff do with their leave is their business, their ability to meet their KPIs and get their bonuses should not be linked to getting their leave balance down!


Reasons for signing

  • Any form of leave is an entitlement and should not be factored into KPI's we have already worked hard and and continue to work hard through any challenges but enough is enough stop taking everything away from us and treat us all with the respect that we so rightly deserve.
  • Leave is an entitlement for all employees. Your KPIS and your current performance should have no impact to any of your entitlements.
  • leave management needs to be responsibility of both people leaders and each staff. It is important that we all take active effort in managing our work/life balance so i don't see the need to use it a performance measure. A performance measure is how you perform your duties in the workplace and it doesn't make sense that is used as a metric for your performance. especially as you are not at work performing your normal duties when you are on leave so it doesn't impact your performance at work.
