My organisation encourages charitable activities

In addition to their extensive pay and benefits package, performance related bonuses and intangible benefits such as flexible working and a great working environment, VocaLink also have an employee recognition scheme that seeks to reward employees for efforts that are over and above their usual role. The recognition award scheme is directly linked to the company behaviours of commercial, courageous, collaborative, transparent and respectful. Anyone across the business can nominate their colleagues against one or more of these behaviours through the recognition portal. As each nomination is made with supporting information, a post is made on the intranet which contains all the details of the nomination and is available to 'like' and comment on. All the nominations are then assessed by a panel made up of colleagues from across the business. Three nominations per month are crowned 'winners' and in addition to the immediate recognition from the nomination itself, these employees are awarded £100, which can be redeemed at a range of shops and restaurants. In addition, teams of people that are nominated could win a quarterly prize of up to £500 towards a team celebration. Each year three 'overall' winners are selected by a panel to receive £1,500. The scheme is regularly reviewed and refreshed to ensure that it is in line with our behaviours and the needs of all employees.
