Dialogue between Managers and Employees

Individual salary determination requires dialogue between managers and employees.

Individual salary determination requires dialogue between managers and employees. All employees should have an annual performance review with their immediate manager. Managers are advised to offer their employees a salary review meeting preceding a salary review. Following the salary review, the employees should be notified of their new salary.

The purpose of the salary review is to:

  • employees must be informed on what grounds the salary is set
  • employees are given feedback on work performed
  • contribute to an understanding of the connection between goals, work effort and salary.

To support the salary review, there are templates for assessing results and skills:
