Our Recognition Schemes

Recognition is important so people know they are appreciated and valued, and feel engaged as a result. We aim to create and encourage a culture of personal recognition throughout the Students’ Union.

Everyone can recognise and value the contribution of people around us by saying thank you, dropping someone an email, letting that person’s line manager know how they made a difference, raising it in a team meeting – there are so many ways just to let people know their contribution has been valued.

Find out more about the scheme in the Performance Policy or by downloading the appropriate HR form available from the UoNSU Forms Page.

Simple Thank You

Any member of staff can recognise any other member of staff with a card, or small gift or maybe a nice hot chocolate to a maximum value of £5. All you need to do is buy your card and/or small gift and submit a Simple Thank You Expenses Form available from UoNSU Forms Page saying who the recognition gift was for and why.  Just send it to SU Finance and the claim will automatically will be processed by Finance.

Monthly Awards

Any member of the Union team can submit a recognition nomination for an individual, group or team. The Monthly Award Nomination Form asks for details of who and why. Recognition Awards will be reviewed by a Recognition Awards Panel made up of volunteer members of the staff team each month.
