We are proud of the many internal and external awards presented to our people. These include:
Learner of the Year
We are proud to announce that we recently won one of the UK’s top training awards at the prestigious Learning & Performance Institute awards, which were hosted at The Dorchester in London. The team won the Internal Project of the Year award, beating off some strong competition from other finalists. Our award entry charted the overall development of our training department as well as our internal assessment process, effective driver monitoring and practical driving courses.
Bus Driver of the Year
National Express drivers have taken many of the top honours at the Bus Driver of the Year events, which are held annually at Blackpool, with one of our Birmingham Central Garage drivers, Paul Jarvis, taking the prestigious Bus Driver of the Year Award title for 2012, competing against many Bus Drivers from all over the UK.
Paul, who drives the 97 route, is the first West Midlands bus driver to ever scoop the top prize of £1,500 plus the Greenroad Shield and numerous other trophies.
We recognise outstanding performance of our people by encouraging nominations for our Values Awards. These are celebrated in the form of an awards ceremony for National Express UK Bus employees and a larger group wide occasion.
Long Service Awards
A presentation evening and dinner is held each year to celebrate our people who have reached 20, 30, 40 and even 50 years service. Additionally we recognise 10, 15, 25, 35 and 45 years of service.
