New Community Award
The new Bus and the Community Award is designed to recognise and reward depots, smaller teams or individuals who work together to help place the bus at the heart of their local communities through charitable work, the giving of time to good causes or other initiatives.
We always consult stakeholders over the winter about the future shape of the awards, and this was one idea that came through very strongly.
Companies all round the country tell us how work on community and charitable projects helps to cement teamwork within depots and improve cohesion in the workplace.
It was suggested that an award would be a great way of recognising all the hard work that goes on - and we thought it was a great idea.
