Giving Something Back

86% of staff agreed

My organisation encourages charitable activities

As part of their total reward framework, UCAS operate employee-led recognition schemes known as Shining Stars and Shining Teams to both recognise and celebrate the hard work and achievements of their people on a regular basis. Often team members can see the day to day effort and hard work that individuals put in and this is their opportunity to acknowledge it. A large proportion of the success of this scheme can be attributed to what people can be rewarded for because the scheme nomination criteria is directly linked to their core values – Customer, Commitment, Agility, Team, Outcomes and Extraordinary. Colleagues are acknowledged for their outstanding work, achievements, ideas and teamwork on a quarterly basis and are made a fuss of at a celebratory drinks reception and by having their name and nomination displayed in the UCAS restaurant for all to see. Winners also receive retail vouchers for them to select a gift that is personal to them and that they will really value.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
