Managers have been provided with a Hiring Tool Kit to aid in recruitment. Tool kits are also in place for coaching, mentoring and development, as well as in completing appraisal forms for their staff. Internal coaching courses are available from Skillsoft, via Scotiabank in London's online training catalogue. Additional, classroom style courses are organised by an external provider called the Mind Gym. People managers are directly assessed in their Performance Appraisals, by their supervisors but also their internal clients, on “People” criteria that focuses on employee satisfaction, development and engagement. Employees have to demonstrate partnership behaviours such as “working together with colleagues in the spirit of mutual cooperation and responsibility in order to achieve business goals”. A minimum average grade of “Meets Expectations” is required, or an action plan is put into place to address and improve the issue.

Total Reward Statements are available to all staff electronically, via the Bank's "Scotia-Kit" online portal. Their TRS are constantly updated to reflect any benefit elections, such as the firms Denplan cover or other benefits such as Childcare Vouchers. Furthermore, employees have the option to instantaneously access an online valuation of their pension pot, so as to gauge the performance of any individual fund. Going forward, the Bank will also be introducing an online portal to aid employees to instantaneously manage their company shares, via the Bank's Share Incentive Plan (SIP). Reward and recognition are important motivational tools to ensure that employees feel that they are rewarded for their efforts, incentive payments are awarded to employees proportionally to their performance level and employees who perform well and who want to develop are also supported, ensuring their performance appraisal reflects their efforts and that there is scope for development and progression.
