KPI system

The performance evaluation system is among the Company's strategic and day-to-day management tools that makes sure the Company’s operations are aligned with its strategic goals.

The KPI system relies on the following principles:

  • Balance between production, financial and economic KPIs and KPIs in the areas of sustainable development, corporate governance, social, and environmental aspects;
  • Breakdown of strategic KPIs into operational KPIs and their cascading on a top-down basis along the organisational structure and by type of activity.

KPIs are also part of the motivation system for executives, with remuneration for the reporting year linked to progress against motivational KPIs.

Motivational KPIs include:

  • corporate KPIs, which are common to all of the Company’s Management Board members and heads of departments and are based on strategic targets and priorities for the reporting period;
  • functional KPIs, which are individual KPIs of the Company’s Management Board members and heads of departments and are based on important objectives set out for a specific leader.
Distribution of corporate and functional KPIs across the final performance by members of the Management Board, %:
Executives Corporate KPIs Functional KPIs
Chairman of the Management Board 100 0
Members of the Management Board (other than the Chairman of the Management Board) 70 30

KPIs and targets for members of KMG’s Management Board are approved annually by KMG’s Board of Directors. Performance evaluation for awarding bonuses is carried out after the Company has analysed its financial and economic results for the reporting year.

Motivational KPIs for 2021 were developed based on the sustained need for the management to focus on operational efficiency improvements and on ESG aspects of the Company’s operations.
