Did you ever wish you could get some really great recognition for one of your fantastic colleagues? Well, the Spotlight recognition programme is a brilliant way to do it.

How does it work?

Anyone can nominate anyone else or a team for an award if they have seen some evidence of exceptional work, great ideas or an outstanding attitude. Four times per year, a panel will review all the nominations and select winners from each category. A Spotlight award ceremony is then held at the wider CS Leadership Lunch – this is Commercial & Campus Support Services’ mini-version of the Oscars!

The finalists in each category are announced from which the winners will be chosen. As if that wasn’t recognition enough, the category winners go forward to an annual awards ceremony with a member of the Vice-Chancellor’s Executive Group, for further recognition and awards. So what are you waiting for – get nominating…
