Performance pay

There were no performance payments made in 2016-17.

Non-salary benefits

The Department of Human Services Agreement 2011-2014 provides for a range of allowances for employees that meet eligibility criteria. For example, social workers can claim reimbursement for professional association membership fees where this is associated with the performance of their duties.
Employees can access a range of salary sacrifice benefits including additional superannuation and leased motor vehicles. Other non-salary benefits can include, for example, a health insurance discount and a public transport loan scheme. Employees also have access to business tools, such as mobile phone and mobile computing devices, when there is a business requirement.
SES employees have car parking at their local office and a vehicle allowance or motor vehicle (for business and private purposes).

Senior executive service remuneration

The Secretary establishes salary ranges for SES employees having regard to:

  • the Australian Government Workplace Bargaining Policy 2015
  • the annual APS SES remuneration survey
  • performance of the department
  • value for money.
