Recognition & Rewards

Where we are now

On this page you can find information about the concrete steps being taken to implement the new way of recognizing and rewarding within Tilburg University.

During the past period, dialogue sessions took place within the Schools. In addition, working groups have examined the operationalization of the domains of education, research, societal impact, leadership and team spirit. The Steering Committee has also explored a number of areas of tension. Based on this input, a number of focal points have emerged that will be part of the Tilburg University strategy for the period 2022-2027. Use (y)our Talents is the overarching vision on talent development that brings together Recognition & Rewards and Connected Leading, our vision on leadership.

Clear frameworks and principles are currently being developed to support those in leadership positions within the Schools, for example regarding the relationship between the different domains. Talent management and talent development for all Tilburg University employees are key focal points within the framework of Use (y)our Talents. The same applies to coaching those in leadership positions so they can implement the vision on talent development. We will continue to engage in dialogue with the university community throughout the implementation phase.
