What is the process for nomination?

Step one

If you are an LS employee you can click into the ovations portal|. Your ID and password should have been emailed to you on 14th Ocober 2013. If you have not received a password contact the Ovation helpdesk|.

Step two

Choose the type of recognition you want to extend:

  1. Send an e-thank you – for something a colleague or supplier has done which stood out and brought the LS values to life;
  2. Nominate a colleague for a quarterly award – where their contribution has had real impact and you would like them to receive an award. The window for nomination for a particular quarter will close at the end of the financial quarter.


Step three

Enter the name of the colleague you wish to nominate, select which of the nine PIA values you feel they have demonstrated, add the reason for thanking them / nominating them and submit.

What happens next?

If you send an e-thank you, the individual nominated receives it instantly and if they are an LS employee their line manager will be informed.

If you send a nomination for a quarterly award then the recipient is informed immediately that they have been put forward for a quarterly award and their line manger automatically receives an e-mail to inform them of the nomination.

When do winners get selected and receive their awards?

The week after the nomination window is closed there is a week where the winners from the list of nominations will go through an adjudication process. Winners will receive a letter of acknowledgment from Robert Noel and an email with the retail award voucher to redeem against a list of retailers.

Quarterly winners of PIA awards will be announced via News Update.

Will there be a celebration?

All quarterly winners will be invited to an annual celebration with their nominators. The annual best of the best awards will be chosen from all the quarterly winners and given at this event.
