Reward and Recognition Application is now online.
DFES advise that the Rewards and Recognition program is now online via the Volunteer Portal which means all awards can be applied for in a paperless process. DFES advise that the online system is:
- more accessible – meaning you can apply for long service medals and National Medals, and nominate colleagues for Australian Honours and internal awards anywhere at any time; and
- simple to use – providing you with a faster, streamlined process so you can directly apply and nominate others online.
This online system should make it easier for Volunteers to acknowledge their peers who make a difference and strive to achieve their best. DFES advise that this is only the first step in making the Rewards and Recognition process more user friendly. By this time next year the system will prompt you to apply for medals you are eligible for and will track the progress of all your applications and nominations.
Soon you will also be able to apply for similar awards such as long service medals and National Medals at the same time, with the simple click of a button. For more information visit the Volunteer Portal or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
