Compensation

Compensation

ADCB aims to reward our employees for their contributions and performance through our pay-for-performance approach. This means that we aim to pay employees based on their performance and to differentiate between levels of performance. This highly competitive rewards policy ensures ADCB employees are being fairly compensated relative to performance and market value.

Variable Pay Plan Rewards High Performance

In addition to the Bank's fixed pay and benefits structure, ADCB rewards high levels of performance through a variable pay plan, which incorporates a deferred compensation element. The plan is designed to ensure that total pay and total reward remain performance-driven (at both the individual and Bank-wide level) and market-competitive while recognising differing pay levels and practices for different business areas. The variable pay plan aligns to international best practices and reflects external realities for hiring, motivating and retaining the best people.
