Recognition Scheme

The purpose of the Recognition Scheme is to reward one-off contributions or examples of high performance by individuals or teams at any time (e.g. the delivery of an important departmental initiative, or an idea that leads to a saving or service improvement).

Nominations for the recognition scheme should be made by managers and consist of a brief case to the head of department, whose decision is final. A sample nomination form is provided in the documents section of this web page.

The recognition award is £200 (to ensure that all recipients receive at least £100 after tax) in all cases. Since the sum awarded is relatively small, the value should be augmented by meaningful acknowledgement of the individual’s contribution, such as a letter of thanks from the head of department.
