Chinese bus drivers from SMRT to get same performance incentives
Chinese bus drivers under two-year contracts will receive the same performance incentives as other drivers, a 13-month bonus and a year-end variable bonus after a wage revision exercise by public transport operator SMRT.
Previously, they received ex-gratia payments and a sign-on bonus.
All bus captains will be developed, assessed, incentivised and promoted based on a common set of performance indicators and competency levels, said a statement by SMRT on Thursday.
They will enjoy incentives if they meet certain performance and productivity standards to do with schedule, service and safety.
