The deadline to submit your Outstanding Contribution (OC) form is Friday 27 October, 5pm, don't forget!

Understanding the OC Awards scheme

OC is awarded where employees are adding value through contributions and behaviours, and using initiative and supporting others to improve the service delivered, over a sustained period of time.

The OC scheme offers an opportunity for those who have reached the grade maximum or who are already within exceptional contribution points to receive an additional spine point. You can nominate yourself or a colleague to be considered for an OC award, or your line manager can nominate you. If successful, your salary will increase by one spine point.

How to nominate for an OC award

  1. Check you are eligible on our Outstanding Contribution scheme webpage
  2. Complete a nomination form for yourself, a colleague, or a member of your team
  3. Submit by the deadlines set - please refer to the timelines on the webpage
