The annual Rewarding Exceptional Performance (REP) Scheme will be open for nominations from Monday 8 January 2024. 

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.   

Adèle Mackinley, Director of People and Organisational Development said: “2023 was another bumper year for our REP scheme with almost 600 nominations received. I encourage all managers to consider nominating their staff who have made great contributions this year for recognition through our REP scheme – this can be exceptional performance for a one-off task or for ongoing exceptional all-round performance. This is a great way to recognise and reward our people for the fantastic work they do.”

 Successful nominees for the Rewarding Exceptional Performance Scheme (for one-off initiatives) will be awarded a payment, usually 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 Professional Services staff up to the closing date on Friday 16 February 2024. Applications will then be assessed by Local Management Panels.

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