A BUS company which operates in Winchester is inviting passengers to nominate their top customer service star.

Stagecoach Group has launched its annual employee awards, which are now in their tenth year.

The honours recognise staff achievements in a number of areas including safety, customer service, innovation, community, health and wellbeing, environment and operational excellence. There will also be an overall Stagecoach Star who will become the champion of champions.

Customers can nominate a member of staff who they see on a regular basis and they feel offers consistently great service. Alternatively, there may be a member of the Stagecoach team that has done something really exceptional to help a customer and may be worthy of an award.

Nominations are now open and can be made through stagecoach.com/stars up until Monday, November 11.

In addition, every customer who nominates an employee will be entered into a prize draw to be in with the chance of winning £250 Love2Shop vouchers

Clare Burles, people director for Stagecoach Group, said: “Our business is built on our people and we are proud to have a highly trained team of over 24,000 employees across the country doing a great job in connecting our customers to jobs, skills and training, shopping and leisure and helping to bring families and communities together.

“We get some great feedback on our people, and we know that many of our customers will have a favourite bus or tram driver, customer service assistant or inspector that makes their journey even better. We’d really love to hear from our customers who their Stagecoach Star is, and nominations can easily be made at www.stagecoach.com/stars.”
