Recognition & Rewards

Towards a better balance in recognizing & valuing our work.

How do we as a university bring science, students and society forward? And how do we ensure that we do this in a way that employees thrive? By engaging in conversation, changing policies and launching initiatives, we want to ensure more room for employees and teams to use and develop their diverse talents in a healthy way.

For whom?

It started with the academic staff, but everyone needs to feel recognized and appreciated. That is why Radboud University's program applies at all levels and to all employees who contribute to the core missions of teaching, research, social impact and leadership.

Four principals

With the Recognition & Rewards program, we focus on the 4 principals:

  • We apply a richer understanding of quality to assess our work and to reward performance. 
  • We seek more collaboration in our core tasks and we work toward a good balance between recognizing and valuing individual performance and team performance.
  • We recognize the importance of the diversity of roles of academics (teaching, research, leadership, social impact) and value the talents and aspirations of all employees. 
  • We take the human dimension: mutual trust, open communication and strive for a good balance between professional autonomy and good governance, and between work and private life.
