“We have talked a lot, we have received a lot of input from our staff and now it's time for action!” Jantine Schuit, Vice Rector Magnificus, explains in a video what concrete steps will be taken in the Recognition & Rewards program.

Our academics excel in many different areas: research, education, societal impact, leadership and team spirit. With the program Recognition & Rewards, Tilburg University actively contributes to the national movement to achieve both a system and a cultural change that leads to a more equal recognition of this diversity of talents.

Concrete actions in the future

The Tilburg University Steering Committee Recognition & Rewards has entered into a dialogue with the academic community regarding the new approach to recognition and rewards. The sessions produced many suggestions for concrete solutions. What concrete steps are being taken now?

  • Appointment of full professors with an accent on teaching
  • Implementation of new Performance & Talent Development system with attention to the five core domains of Recognition & Rewards, continuous feedback and team performance
  • New criteria for recruitment and selection and for promotion, in line with Recognition & Rewards;
  • Training, coaching and intervision for Heads of Departments.
