In the Netherlands, people who have been in government service for 25 or 40 years are entitled to a one-off bonus. At the University of Twente, staff who have been employed for 12.5 years also receive something special. The University of Twente celebrates 25 years of service by awarding a silver lapel pin and a certificate. For the exact sums of money or gift(s) and the possibilities of a reception and/or extra leave for specific anniversaries,
refer to the UT Anniversary Scheme.
