In recent years, our institution has recognized the need to create a more dynamic and motivating environment for both students and staff. In alignment with our commitment to excellence, the college has introduced a performance-based reward system that not only acknowledges and celebrates outstanding achievements but also serves as a powerful motivator for continual growth and development.

  1. The primary objective is to create a positive and encouraging work and learning environment by motivating and recognizing achievements of the students and staff.
  2. It aims to inspire individuals to consistently strive for excellence in their academic or professional pursuits.
  3. It aims to foster a healthy sense of competition among students and staff, where high performance are valued and encouraged and which can be a catalyst for improvement.
  4. The objective of this practice is to allow the institution to measure and track the progress of students and staff.

The Context:

The context for introducing performance-based rewards for students and staff is rooted in the institution’s commitment to excellence, motivation, recognition, continuous improvement, and the creation of a positive, competitive, and values-aligned environment. These rewards serve as a way to encourage and reward exceptional performance and contributions in both academic and professional domains.
