The Thank You Scheme
Take the time to show appreciation
Have you let your team know that they are valued for the work they do? Showing appreciation only takes a few minutes but the positive effects last a long time. Everybody values being thanked and studies have suggested that gratitude and appreciation can improve well-being, physical health, can strengthen social relationships and help us cope with stressful times in our lives.
The Thank You Scheme is for those special occasions where a manager feels the actions of an individual or a team are worthy of being singled out. It's for when staff have done something above and beyond - for example: pulled out all the stops to achieve a task, or consistently gone that extra mile. A gift is a token of appreciation and should take into account what the member of staff would enjoy. Gifts may range from a few pounds upwards, but should not exceed a maximum of £100.
Please read or download the detailed FAQs for managers. Please note that all costs should be allocated to i/e code 4034 Thank You Scheme costs.
The Thank You Scheme allows managers to gift any item they choose up to £100, subject to the Faculty or PS Directorate budget holders approval. This may include vouchers, flowers, chocolates or allocate a day’s leave. Any managers wishing to give a voucher as a thank you gift, should request this only from the Income Office. The vouchers, and any other gifts, should be properly reported on a monitoring form and on the Finance system against i/e code 4034.
