    That sounds like something that has to do with human resources policy at a company.

    I'm having a hard time guessing what dist is an abbreviation for.

    Has a new job-rating system just been announced, or a new way of assessing salary or bonuses? That's what it sounds like.

    Thank both of you for revealing that abbreviation to me. In fact his a piece of .. hm.. let's say: ' an open letter.' It was followed by a FAQ with frequently asked questions. And this extract is one of those questions. I afraid I'm not allowed to give any detailed information about the company that produced it. Sorry
