04 | SUMMARY FINDINGS 36 0 4 | SU M M A R Y F IN D IN G S NORTHERN TERRITORY PUBLIC SECTOR PEOPLE MATTER SURVEY REPORT 2014 74% of employees are aware that their agencies have a performance management system in place PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT Managing employees work performance is critical to achieving agency objectives and a responsibility of all managerial or supervisory jobs in the NTPS. Performance management is covered by PSEMA sections 24(f), 24(g) and 28(g) and Employment Instruction Number Four. All Agencies are required to have Performance Management Systems in place. When reporting in response to a request from OCPE for collation of 2014-15 State of the Service Report, 93 per cent of agencies indicated that they have implemented a performance management system in all business areas. In addition, 64 per cent reported having a reliable monitoring system in place to verify that all supervisors/ managers are providing formal performance feedback to staff at least annually. These figures may be optimistic given the results of the NTPS 2014 People Matter Survey. FIGURE 4.20: Employees with a current performance plan in place 44% of employees report having a current performance plan in place The engagement index score for employees without a performance agreement was 56, ten points lower than the NTPS average.
