Attracting & Retaining Talent

We are committed to attracting and investing in people of a high calibre who live the values of our business. We provide a range of benefits to help ensure our employees have the opportunity to achieve their best, progress their careers and enjoy their work.
The following benefits are key to attracting and retaining the right people to work with us:


Key employee remuneration principles applied in GPT include:

  • transparency;
  • fairness and market competitiveness;
  • encouragement of superior performance by aligning employee rewards with the interests of all stakeholders;
  • remuneration that attracts, motivates, retains and rewards talented and skilled directors, executives and employees; and
  • employee rewards that align conduct and performance with the core values and culture of GPT.

In addition to a competitive base salary, we provide eligible employees that have the most ability to meaningfully influence the financial performance of the Group with opportunities to receive short-term incentives based on calendar year performance. Long term incentives are also offered to senior executives that have the most ability to influence the strategic direction and overall performance of the organization. Both types of incentive schemes are designed to align employee and security holder experience and reward.

Performance Management

At GPT, our performance management system is designed to achieve the following objectives:

  • facilitate transparent, open discussion and agreement between employees and managers on what is expected of employees in their role;
  • provide a basis to encourage, motivate, recognise and reward superior performance;
  • align job performance with GPT Group strategy and values; and
  • collectively, drive the overall performance of the business and execution of strategy.

The Performance Agreement is the vehicle GPT utilizes record and measure an employee’s performance with every eligible permanent employee required to have one in place. Our Performance Agreements summarise the financial and non-financial key performance indicators (KPI’s) that apply to an individual’s role during the calendar year.  At GPT, we believe that Performance Agreement process is important for three key reasons:

      1.  To provide clarity to individuals regarding their responsibilities;
      2. To align individual efforts with GPT strategy and values to drive overall business performance; and
      3. To generate Performance Ratings which contribute to decisions regarding remuneration review, Short Term Incentive Compensation (STIC) and other talent management outcomes

In 2014, 100% of eligible employees received a formal performance appraisal and review during the reporting period. Non-eligible employees were those that commenced employment with GPT within four months of the end of the year or were employed on a fixed term or external contractor basis.

We are committed to the ongoing development of our people and to that end, having a Development Plan in place is a mandatory requirement and is linked to the Performance Agreement process.
