It’s bonus time

It seems that it is bonus time again – or, as the University prefers to call it – PRPs (performance related pay).  We all used to get a fixed sum when the University had done particularly well at something, which recognised the fact that success is achieved by all of us pulling together – whether that is teaching, supervising, catering or cleaning the toilets or a combination of all those things which makes life good.  Now it is only the individual that gets a reward and we never know who gets the bonus, how much they get or why they got it (and why you didn’t get one!).
