Voucher Scheme


The University is delighted to offer a mechanism for instant recognition for our colleagues who demonstrate exceptional effort against our University Values through the Recognition Rewards Voucher Scheme.

The award is in the form of an e-voucher to the recipient, allowing flexibility for each area to determine which of the University values they wish to recognise and promote. 


Each area is encouraged to develop an internal nomination process, whether this is by committee or another mechanism in order to ensure equality of opportunity to all colleagues. 

Each Directorate/School will have assigned individuals who are authorised to make the request. These individuals are typically Budget Holders for a Directorate/School as all vouchers will be costed to the requesters budget.

  • Nominations should be made by the employee’s line manger by completing the Reward Voucher Nomination Form.
  • Nomination forms should be sent to HR Performance Pay and Reward team hr-ppr@glasgow.ac.uk, with the subject heading Voucher Reward.
  • The HR Performance, Pay and Reward team will seek approval from the budget holder for the area.


All colleagues with a University of Glasgow contract of employment at the time of award.
