All active full-time and regular part-time administrators and staff who participate in the Recognize Excellence and Development (RED) performance program are eligible for consideration for an award. Awards are discretionary and are not guaranteed.
The Exceptional Performance Award is intended to encourage on-going exceptional performance levels by an individual during the year in review as defined in the RED performance program. The goal is to reward and retain outstanding talent. Specific guidelines and award criteria are addressed in the program’s current plan document.
Managers should consider the following factors when recommending an employee for an Exceptional Performance Award:
In order to be eligible for an Exceptional Performance Award, a RED performance appraisal must be submitted on behalf of the employee by the employee's manager. The employee must be actively working at the time that the award is paid. Employees who have resigned, retired, or who have been terminated are ineligible for an award. Employees who are on leave at the time an award is paid will be paid the award upon their return to active work. Employees whose positions are funded by external sources (i.e. grants and contracts) may not be eligible for certain University-funded compensation programs.
St John’s University reserves the right to modify or cancel any of its award programs at any time, without advance notice.
