During 2012, the Office of CIO (OCIO) began developing a new approach to our performance and professional development. The resultant Programme will be called I Contribute. The first element of this Programme, our recognition awards, were introduced at the April eSolutions Town Hall.
The I Contribute Awards will recognise and reward examples of exceptional performance that also make an exceptional contribution to achievement of the eSolutions vision whilst demonstrating the values and behaviours we wish to encourage. The I Contribute Awards will acknowledge the contribution our staff make to supporting the eSolutions vision, and thereby, the University’s goals and objectives.
Any eSolutions staff member may nominate individuals or teams for their exceptional performance and contributions. Submissions should be no more than two A4 pages, include the following details, and address the following criteria:
- Staff/s name, title, and team name
- Performance for which staff is/are nominated
- The case for an I Contribute Award including:
- The opportunity/challenge addressed
- The specific actions taken
- What was achieved, supported by evidence of the outcomes, how the outcomes support realisation of our vision, and analysis of what led to the results
- How the outcomes were achieved, including how the staff/team approach to the issues at hand demonstrate our values
Joint submissions from two or more areas of eSolutions will be well regarded, as will those that include evidence of high-levels of customer satisfaction with the results. Submissions must include a supporting statement from the relevant CIO Direct Report/s to whom the individual/s or team/s report.
Nominations should be sent to Michelle.King@monash.edu (Director of OCIO) at any time and will be evaluated jointly by Michelle King and Ian Tebbett (CIO). The OCIO can also encourage nominations. Nominations will be considered on a monthly basis.
Recipients will receive a small gift to the value of $100 and, where relevant, development opportunities related to their contribution. Recipients will receive a personal letter from the CIO. Rewards will be announced in NewsBytes and at Town Hall meetings in order to publically recognise these exceptional contributions. Recipients’ Managers will be encouraged to hold further local celebrations with recipients and their teams.
