Performance bonus

Here is a report of the discussion in Parliament about the flooded MRT Tunnel.

I have a few concerns after reading this report.

The minister said that the bonuses of senior supervisors will be tied to the performance of their teams.

Why is the minister making this statement? Surely it is the job of the CEO of SMRT to handle this matter?

I do not like the concept of giving bonus based on performance. Surely, the job of the maintenance teams and supervisors is to carry out their work as required. Do they need to have a bonus to carry out their duty?

We are taking the concept of performance bonus too far. It will breed the wrong kind of culture. No wonder we have a culture issue in SMRT.

I fear that the culture issue is prevalent in many organizations in Singapore. People forget about their duty. They look towards performance bonus.
