Staff recognition awards

Our staff awards recognise the efforts and achievements of our dedicated staff who go the extra mile to improve the lives of the people and communities we serve.

We want to hear from you - shine the spotlight on the great work of a colleague, service or team that has gone to extraordinary lengths to help provide exceptional service, care and support.

Information about the 2018 nomination process

  • You can submit a nomination for an individual or team across a range of six award categories covering everything from ‘Valued partners' to ‘Team of the year’

  • We’re keen that our awards celebrate our diverse workforce - please help us to ensure that all our staff are represented, inlcuding our black and minority ethnic (BME) , disabled and LGBT colleagues 

  • Service users and their carers will be able to nominate staff for two of the awards: ‘Kindness and caring’ and ‘Transforming lives’

  • You can only nominate a team/individual for one award, so choose your category carefully

  • Apart from the ‘valued partners’ category, you can nominate Trust staff employees only - paid employees of SLaM, those who have a trust employee number, not individuals who receive payment for a rewarded activity

  • You can only nominate a team/individual for one award category.  Subsequent nominations for the same team/individual for another category will not be included in the judging process

To make a nomination you need to answer these two questions - they are a key part of the judging process:

Q1. Tell us why you have chosen this staff award category for your nomination(Maximum of 100 words)

Q2. We are looking for individuals or teams that really have gone the extra mile, tell us example(s) how you feel that they have done something over and above what would be expected from their role. (Maximum of 250 words)

Your response to these two questions can be copied and pasted from Microsoft Word on to the online form.

The nomination categories for 2018 are:
