Summary from September NfP Managers' Meeting

Thank you to all those who joined us at this month's Not-for-Profit Managers' meeting on Friday 1st September. Here are some points from the discussion on Performance Management: Reward and Recognition, facilitated by Paul Barclay.

Formal rewards and recognition are usually written into Employment Agreements or Organisational Policies, and include:

  • Salary;
  • Additional Leave provisions such as annual, sick, Bereavement, Study, Board Day etc.;
  • Flexible or different starting and finishing hours;
  • External Supervision;
  • Professional Development;
  • Carpark;
  • Personal use of work phone, laptop etc.;
  • Vehicle Usage - for example between work and home;
  • Medical Insurance;
  • Professional Membership Fees; and
  • Koru Membership.

Informal rewards and recognition are practices rather than policy, and can include:

  • Attending Workshops and Conferences;
  • Opportunities on Working Groups;
  • Mention in staff meetings such as compliments etc.;
  • Acknowledgement of tenure - 5 years, 10 years etc.;
  • Quality Tick via nomination process by colleagues;
  • McDonald’s Crew Person of the Week; and
  • Day off for Birthday.

Paul gave a specific example of an informal reward - Purple and Orange cards at Arthritis NZ. Cards are drawn out of a pile for effort that has contributed to customer service, service development, organisational achievements, revenue generation etc.

  • Purple cards are more regularly presented and the associated reward is: ice-cream, muffin, coffee, magazine, half-hour sleep in, scratchy etc.
  • Orange cards are for a more significant contribution and the associated reward is: bottle of wine, grocery or petrol voucher, movie tickets, half-day off etc.
