Recognising staff achievements

Our staff make outstanding contributions across academic, professional and research arenas. We are proud to recognise, reward and celebrate the many achievements of our great people through a range of award programs.


Faculty and Division Awards

Faculties and Divisions conduct annual peer nominated awards recognising outstanding achievements and performance. Staff are then recognised through Faculty and Division award ceremonies towards the end of the year. For information on the 2018 Faculty and Division awards please contact your Faculty/Division awards coordinator (PDF, 207KB).


Vice-Chancellor's Awards for Excellence

Recipients of the Faculty and Division Awards will then be considered for nomination in the prestigious 2018 Vice-Chancellor’s Awards for Excellence.

Nominations for the seven award categories (PDF, 156KB) are then assessed by central awards committees, with the overall winners and commendations awarded at the annual Vice-Chancellor's Awards ceremony on Monday 3 December 2018 at the Conservatorium.

Service Recognition Awardscertificates

Service recognition awards are presented to staff who have served either 15 or 25 years at UON. Staff are presented with a certificate and a small gift at Faculty and Division awards ceremonies towards the end of the year.


Informal reward and recognition

Informal rewards and recognition are a spontaneous and sincere appreciation of individual or team performance above normal expectations. These may be monetary or non-monetary and should be personalised and meaningful to the individual. The Reward and Recognition guideline provides guidance to managers when considering and recommending reward and recognition for staff.
