FAU certainly understand the importance to recognize and motivate the "Real Top Performer". However, we must also emphasise the balance made to ensure the morale of the general crew community maintains in a long run.
In brief, the current policy allows the top 5% top performers taking up 20% of the promotion quota which is far beyond reasonable proportion. To prorate it on an equitable basis, the 5 % top performers shall takes up 7% of the eligible quota only and the 75% normal track shall be eligible for the remaining 93% in each opening. We believe by adjusting the ratio, it could make a well balance between the recognition program in place and the promotion pace for general community.
In order to attain a comprehensive view from our Members, we would like to invite you to express your view in supporting the review of promotion policy and the promotion quota for top performers.
