If you haven’t heard about it already, we don’t know where you’ve been hiding! The Shining Stars scheme is LUU’s way of ensuring that staff who have gone over and above the call of duty outside of their normal role are recognised and rewarded for it.
The winner in each category receives £100 to spend on anything they choose.
Shining Stars is open to ANY member of LUU staff. Basically, YOU nominate a teammate, colleague or even department who you feel deserves to be recognised. You can make a nomination at any point in the year in the following categories:
Innovative and Creative
For the person who has come up with the most innovative idea in LUU or who has ensured that we are always seeking new improvements and ideas.
Helpful & Supportive
For the person who supports our members by delivering an excellent service experience.
Friendly & Fun
For the person who always brings fun to others at work?
For someone who demonstrates a positive attitude in all that they do.
Trust & Respect
For that great person who you can always trust and rely on and who also always show respect to everyone they deal with.
You can nominate someone by simply filling in a shining stars nomination form (see the box on the right). Include your name, the person you would like to nominate and the reasons why you believe they deserve to win. Your nomination will automatically be sent to HR.
The awards are held twice a year in June and December – these are LUU’s mini-version of the Oscars! The finalists in each category are announced and then the winner is revealed!
The deadline for nominations is the 10th June and 30th November each year.
Previous winners have spent their hard-earned cash on a wide range of prizes including: a digital camera, holiday vouchers, a new mobile phone, GHD hair straighteners, a spa day, gym equipment, and garden furniture.
