Individual performance and reward
We have improved alignment between employee performance and reward with our values and we have identified ‘safety’ and ‘taking a long-term perspective’ as key indicators of individual performance. In annual performance conversations, staff are asked to set priorities on their contribution to safety, compliance and risk management. BP’s overall group performance is used in determining individuals’ bonuses.
What don't they get? Safety has long been BP's top priority. That doesn't mean everyone is perfect or that everyone follows BP safety rules. Especially in Texas there are a number old oilfield hands that stubbornly ignore safety BP rules. BP fires them whenever they have proof. BP management is not the problem. Individuals are sometimes.
