We recognise and celebrate success
We recognise and celebrate success means:
We don’t take success for granted – on the contrary we recognise people who achieve successful outcomes and we celebrate major achievements. Along the way we positively reinforce people who are working hard and especially those who go the extra mile in the course of their work. This value is all about encouraging and motivating people to make the most of their talents – in other words bringing out the best in them.
- Encouraging, acknowledging and reinforcing all levels of achievement (large and small).
- Valuing the contributions of staff at all levels.
- Recognising and celebrating individual and collective success.
Some behaviours that support this value:
- Taking an active interest in the work of colleagues and students.
- Offering praise and encouragement for effective work.
- Celebrating collaborative work between different parts of the University.
- Acknowledging and recognising high quality outputs delivered by colleagues and students.
- Remembering to say thank you (both in person and by email).
- Not letting the pressures of the job get in the way of noticing and reinforcing positive behaviour in others and saying thank you.
- Looking to find practical ways to celebrate achievement (e.g. book tokens for student excellence).
- Participating in Graduation ceremonies so as to celebrate students’ successes.
- Trying to find ways of thanking people that relate to their particular needs or dispositions.
- Making sure that recognition is delivered where appropriate in front of others.
- Showing recognition to all we work with which includes upwards, sideways, downwards and across other parts of the University.
