PBB for Teachers

PBB or the Performance-Based Bonus can truly help teachers in rendering the service expected from them by the department. It motivates them to perform better and deliver the performance that the school children deserve to get from them. But what do we really know about PBB? Below are some of the frequently asked questions which may help us understand important things about it.
WHAT IS PBB?
The PBB or Performance-Based Bonus, which is the new bonus introduced via the PBIS or Performance-Based Incentive System, will be given to employees based on their contribution to the accomplishment of their Department’s overall targets and commitments.

Under the PBB, units of Departments will be ranked according to their performance. The personnel within these units shall also be ranked. The ranking of units and personnel will be based on their actual performance at the end of the year, as measured by verifiable, observable, credible, and sustainable indicators of performance.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PBIS AND PBB?
The PBB or the Performance-Based Bonus is a component of the PBIS or the Performance-Based Incentive System. The PBB is a top-up bonus which will be given to employees based on their contribution to the achievement of their Department or Agency’s targets and commitments in FY 2012. The other component is the PEI, which is provided to employees across the board, regardless of their actual performance.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PBB AND THE BONUSES CURRENTLY GIVEN TO NATIONAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES?
The PBB is a new incentive given to government employees based on their performance. This is different from existing bonuses in government, which are given to employees across the board, regardless of their performance.

The PBB was introduced by the Aquino Administration to reward and encourage exemplary performance among public servants in national government. The PBB, as introduced in 2012, is on top of the following bonuses currently provided to government employees:

i. Mid-Year and Year-End Bonuses are the government equivalent of the 13th Month Pay of employees in the private sector. Like the 13th Month Pay, the total amount of the Mid-year and Year-end Bonuses are equivalent to their one month’s salary, depending on their rank and salary grade. The Mid-year and Year-end Bonuses are given no earlier than May 1 and November 15, respectively.

ii. The Cash Gift is an across-the-board bonus of P5,000 given to each employee of the national government. It is released in two tranches: at the middle and end of the year, together with the Mid-year and Year-end Bonuses.

iii. The Collective Negotiation Agreement (CNA) Bonus, meanwhile, is provided to employees of government agencies where there is an accredited employee’s union, and where the agency and the union have entered into a Collective Negotiation Agreement (CNA).

The CNA Bonus is funded by savings from the agency’s maintenance expenditure items identified in their CAN. An agency can raise these savings through cost cutting and productivity measures—identified in their CNA.

iv. The PEI is an existing across-the-board bonus, given equally to government employees. Unlike the Mid-year and Year-End Bonuses and Cash Gifts, the amount given per employee is not fixed. Instead, the amount depends on the level of savings incurred and authorized by the national government to fund the PEI. Thus, the amount per employee has varied through the years.

With the delay of the issuance of PBB for fiscal year 2017, teachers are still hoping for its release before the end of January 2019 or earlier.
