Recognising and celebrating individual and collective contribution.

Together we are delivering for our customers and growing our company, so it is important that we all have the opportunity to share in our success. We offer a broad range of reward and recognition, designed to enhance our wellbeing, celebrate our achievements, and incentivise both collective performance and individual contribution; enabling us to make choices about what works best for ourselves and for our families.

As part of our Rewarding for Performance framework, we offer:

  • All Employee Incentive Scheme, which awards an annual bonus for company performance with an additional personal element for high performing colleagues

  • Annual Salary Review, aims to recognise personal contribution with a salary increase, providing a clear link between performance and reward

  • Pay & Progression is our process for managing in-year role, grade and career progression

  • Thank Q, our peer-to-peer global recognition scheme, enabling us to celebrate each other’s contribution and the important part we all play in our success

  • Annual Global Recognition Gala celebrating individuals and teams who have made an outstanding contribution to our company

  • Long Service Awards that recognise long-term contribution and commitment

In addition, our people can also access the following benefits:

  • Pension schemes helping them save for the future

  • Share Incentive Plans enabling them to invest in QinetiQ shares through monthly deductions

  • Employee Referral offering a payment for employees our people introduce to QinetiQ

  • Benefits and savings available all year round

Annual Global Recognition Gala

This year we held our sixth annual Global Recognition Gala, whereby colleagues from across the company joined us at three live events in Australia, the UK and the US, marking our biggest and most global celebration ever.

In today’s heightened defence and security environment, our purpose – to protect lives and secure the vital interests of our customers – has never been more important. So our Global Recognition Gala is an inspiring opportunity to recognise and celebrate the people and the teams who make such an outstanding contribution to our company.

Please do take a look at the short film below, which shares some of the highlights of this year’s gala.
