If a member of staff has made your day, nominate them and you could win an easysaver 10.
Our employee of the month scheme is now in it's fourth year and still going strong! We celebrate those members of our staff who have done great things, whether achieving consistently excellent performance or by doing something out of the ordinary!
The best nominations for our stars of the month come from you, our customers. It could be that a driver was friendly and drove well. The bus may have waited for you to run up to it. Or it may be that our customer service team helped you out with a query. Whatever the reason, if any of our staff have made you feel good, please fill out the form or call our customer services team to nominate someone as your 'star'.
To tell us about a "star" please fill out the following form ensuring all fields are filled in.
The draw for the free easysaver 10 will take place in the first week of every month and the winner will be notified by email.
On Saturday 26 January 2013, we held our annual 'Night with the Stars' at Highfield Park to celebrate members of staff who have done great things over the past 12 months. Celebrations centred around retirements, long service and professional qualifications attained.
The main focus of the evening was though, of course, to celebrate our Stars of the Month and to crown our Star of the Year!
With speeches from the Reading Buses Chairman, David Sutton, and the Chief Executive Officer, James Freeman, the attendees were commended for their efforts in improving the company immensely which led to Reading Buses' crowning as Top Shire Operator at the UK Bus Awards 2012.
Mr Freeman explained that the decision to name our Star this year, although difficult due to the high calibre of entries, produced a clear winner. For her dedication, attitude, excellent performance and her personality which brightens customers' days our Star of the Year deserved her victory.
Alma Cox was declared the standout performer of 2012 and the Reading Buses Star of the Year!
The presentation was sent out in real-time over the company's social media, with postive messages flooding in from our followers. One customer even wrote on Facebook that their child calls Alma 'the happy lady driver'.
Alma was presented with her award by the Chairman and our Star of the Year 2011, Chris Mocko, who was delighted to hand over the baton to such a deserving winner.
A richly deserved win and massive congratulations from all of us at Reading Buses!
