Stagecoach Group has launched its 2015 Champions Awards for employees – and is inviting bus and rail passengers in the Eastbourne, Hailsham and Seaford area to nominate their favourite member of staff.
This is the sixth year of the company’s group-wide Champions Awards which recognise staff achievements in a number of categories including safety, environment, health, innovation, community and customer service.
The awards are open to employees across Stagecoach’s bus and rail operations in the UK and North America, and more than 90 staff members have been honoured for their outstanding efforts over the past six years.
Stagecoach is calling on the help of its millions of local bus customers to nominate their favourite employee – it could be a bus driver, train guard, customer service assistant, inspector or any other member of the Stagecoach team.
All employees nominated will be in with a chance of winning a gold, silver or bronze champions award along with a cash prize.
In addition, customers who nominate a winning employee will also receive a cash prize.
The customer who nominates a gold award-winning employee will receive £500, the customer who puts forward a silver award-winning employee will receive £250 and the customer who nominates a bronze award-winning employee will receive £125.
Stagecoach Group chief executive Martin Griffiths said, “We know many of our staff have a great relationship with our customers and the job they do is appreciated by many local people.
“This is a chance for our customers to help local staff gain recognition at a national level as well as potentially winning a prize themselves.
“We hope people will take the time to nominate their favourite Stagecoach employee across the country.”
Customers who wish to nominate an employee should visit www.stagecoach.com or email champions@stage coachgroup.com to give details of the staff member and an explanation of why they believe the employee deserves to win an award.
The deadline for nominations is midnight on Thursday April 30.
