Rewarding exceptional performance

21 Dec 2022

Nominations open from Thursday, 12 January to Tuesday, 28 February 2023

John Owens building

The annual Rewarding exceptional performance scheme will be open for nominations from Thursday, 12 January 2023.

This is the time of year when line managers can nominate colleagues, or teams, who have performed exceptionally for a one-off initiative or for sustained exceptional performance over six months. In a year when many colleagues have gone above and beyond, nominations should clearly demonstrate how and why a colleague’s contribution has been truly exceptional and stands out as making a significant contribution.  

Successful nominees for the Rewarding exceptional performance scheme (for one off initiatives) will be awarded a payment up to the value of one increment. Where a member of staff has shown a Sustained exceptional performance, they will advance to the next point on the salary scale. For those who are already at the top of their scale, they will receive a contribution point. An appropriate payment may also be split between a team where there has been a combined achievement. 

Nominations will be welcomed for all staff up to the closing date on Tuesday, 28 February 2023. Applications will then be assessed by local management panels.

The nominations for academic and research staff can be reviewed by School and Faculty Promotions Committees who will share their timetables locally.
