Stagecoach East Scotland is calling on the help of local bus customers to nominate their favourite employee – it could be a driver, 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.
Managing Director of Stagecoach East Scotland, Andrew Jarvis 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 East Scotland.”
Customers can nominate and employee here or email email@example.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 Friday 27 May 2016.
