Spot Awards

Spot Awards are designed to recognize special contributions, as they occur, for a specific project or task. Spot Awards are generally for a special contribution accomplished over a relatively short time period. A Spot Award lets employees know that someone has noticed their noteworthy contribution. At the same time, it recognizes and reinforces the behaviors and values that are important at UC Berkeley.

Performance Bonus


Performance-based awards are intended to provide rewards that recognize significant contributions aligned with stretch goals. Often top performance includes delivery of a significant stretch goal which may lend itself to a one-time bonus. It is important that Berkeley reward excellent employee performance and provide managers with the capability to recognize employees for significant contributions.
