Fair Deal
Fair Deal
In Legal and General their drive to create a transparent and straightforward place to work where all employees can perform at their best, is supported by the reward structure which is aligned to the performance management process. Their performance and reward process recognises how employees go about things, as well as what they achieve. A great performance is about delivering results in a way that lives up to the Legal and General goals, brand and demonstrates the six behaviours. An individual’s performance influences their salary and bonus. Salary is reviewed each year against how they have performed in their role and the bonus reflects how they have got on against their objectives and how they’ve gone about achieving them. Their salary and bonus pots always take into account company performance and the economic environment. Salary and bonus are part of the Total Reward package and sit alongside a wide range of financial, wellbeing, community benefits and staff discounts.
