The idea is to reward the top performing staff and motivate staff to perform. At corporate level, there are differences between bonus, so if a particular department perform very well (which is hard to quantify because department's KPIs are different), staff from that department might receive some additional reward.

Also, among department, there is technically no quota on the number of 'A's, 'B's or 'C' that the Director can award. However, at the corporate level or higher level, the Director have to justify why it is his/her staff that should get the 'A' rather than that some other staff from the other department. This is usually not easy (if it is, it means someone boss is not doing his/her work to fight for his/her staff).
When talking about every bosses giving his/her fellow employees GOOD gradings , at the same time there will be some who dun .... Speaking of the term performances , the definition is actually really wide. Whats wrong with giving your fellow employees better grades when you think he/she deserve it??? The problem lies with the current system when normination have to be highlighted for the best and worse employee . Fact is how can we be sure employee who is given A is actually performing at his/hers best not by practising bias between bosses and employee??? Personal I have encountered people who are gotten good grades usually based on favourism by bosses or the upper level. At the end of the day , not all grading are processed with fairness. If that is so , why restrict the quota system on PB???Meaningless. Hence,answer is very simple, if every bosses should give their employee at least a B , with no restriction nor quota system , the total amount of bonus will accuminate into an imaginable amount which our dear TOP management have to fork out. With this current quota system , this phenomenon will never happened. Take recent incentive by recent certain GOV sector to attract "new , capable and effective" officers by rewarding a lum sum of 8 to 10 K for diploma holders. New, I agree but capable and effective, we can never know. One thing for sure, they most proablilty are here for the good incentive another word = MONEY.

Bottomline, those who gotten A = the best of the best ????? No really ... Empolyee who gotten D = Worse of the kind??? ....
