An awards programme that recognises IET volunteers who demonstrate our core values of integrity, excellence and teamwork.

We never fail to be impressed by the tireless efforts of our volunteers around the world. They consistently demonstrate our core values through their various volunteering activities. Their contribution plays a vital part in helping to inspire, inform and influence today’s global engineering community… and tomorrow’s.

It’s often said that our volunteers are the lifeblood of the IET, and with that in mind we have a recognition programme to share and celebrate the efforts of IET volunteers from around the world, who reflect our core values through their volunteering activities.

The awards will be made biannually to IET volunteers in three categories:

  • Integrity – an individual who behaves in a professional, open and honest way, always respecting and valuing the contributions of others;
  • Excellence – an individual who strives to deliver excellent service and satisfaction, introduces innovative solutions that add value, and is committed to continuous improvement;
  • Teamwork – a team that encourages IET staff and volunteers to work together, recognises the value of harnessing individual talents through teamwork, and collaborates with others.

The winners will receive a certificate and feature in a Member News article – a fantastic, profile-raising opportunity to share their story and inspire readers.

Nominations can be made by IET volunteers, members and staff - so if you’ve been inspired by an IET volunteer (or team) simply complete an online nomination form explaining how they have demonstrated the Core Value and why they deserve to win one of the three award categories.

Please remember that the more information and examples you give of how the Core Value has been demonstrated, the better chance the nominee has of winning the award. And if they do win, we will include your name as the nominator when we announce the winners on our website, and also include a comment from you in our Member News feature about why you nominated them. 

We had a wonderful response to the two rounds of nominations in 2018, and will publish the winners of the most recent awards on the announcement page once available. 

The first round of IET Volunteer Core Values Awards for 2019 is now open, with a closing date of 30 June - it’ll come round soon enough, so do start thinking about which of our wonderful volunteers you’re going to nominate!

Nominate now - closing date 30 June 2019
