BT Ignite is introducing a new global bonus system to standardise the way it rewards staff around the world.
The bonus system will apply to all 19,000 staff, employed across 50 countries by BT Ignite, BT's global telecommunications arm.
HR vice-president Steven Kelly, who joined BT Ignite four months ago, said the new framework would make staff more focused on achieving targets.
"We wanted to create a framework that rewarded people, while underpinning a performance-led culture. It's linked to targets so staff know what they have to achieve to be rewarded with a specific amount," he said.
Kelly explained that financial rewards would still vary around the world because of local economies but the framework would standardise the way rewards are calculated.
"The current system is fragmented and very different depending on the country. Under the new scheme, the local market still dictates how rewards work financially but the framework will be the same regardless of location," he said.
The company will also be linking individual employee objectives to business objectives as part of its performance management process.
Formed two years ago, BT Ignite is launching a work culture drive, called Inspire, to help staff deliver the strategic values of the business. It will use a number of leadership programmes and improved internal communications, including quarterly feedback from staff, in a bid to get workers more focused on the business objectives.
