Nottingham Reward Scheme (NRS) – reward your teams

May 3rd, 2022

The Nottingham Reward Scheme is designed to reward exceptional performance for staff whose contribution goes above and beyond the normal expectation of their role.

Since launching the online system in November 2021 we have had a great response, with more than 1,000 staff being recognised so far.

That includes:

  • 1,300 nominations received on the new online system
  • 800 voucher nominations approved
  • 250 higher-level awards approved
  • 550 members of staff redeeming a voucher nomination in 2022 so far

Local Reward Committee’s will next be reviewing higher level awards (£500, fixed value and consolidated rewards) in June.

If you are a line manager or you want to make a self-nomination* please ensure you submit your nominations by Tuesday 31st May 2022 for them to be considered for payment in July (August for consolidated awards).

*self-nominations only available for consolidated / fixed value awards. For full details please see the Nottingham Reward Scheme guidance.

Please review the Nottingham Reward Scheme for full details, including the full eligibility criteria.

To make a nomination, log onto the Employee Hub and then select the Nottingham Reward Scheme tab across the top. You should then click on the £500 / fixed / consolidated level button on the right hand side to complete your nomination.

Remember that voucher awards for between £25 and £100 can be made throughout the year on the Employee Hub and Microsoft Praise can also be used to say ‘Thank you’ via Teams.
