2 years ago Fri 13th Mar 2020

Have you heard? We've been crowned Employer of the Year at this year's Red Rose Awards and we couldn't be prouder of our teams.

The Red Rose Awards is the largest event of its kind in the country where Lancashire business, commerce and industry are celebrated. It provides the best possible platforms to promote success and to encourage inter-trading in the county whilst celebrating the businesses that keep the county alive, the heroes of the Lancashire economy.

The Employer of the Year award is open to private and public sector organisations that have excellent engagement with their team and can demonstrate support and development of their workforce including a commitment to skills, flexible working, personal development, workplace wellbeing and teambuilding.

At Blackpool Transport, we employ over 600 members of staff, 40 of which are enrolled on a level 3 or level 5 apprenticeship scheme as part of the organisation's vision to upskill and empower its employees.

Jane Cole, Managing Director at Blackpool Transport says “I am so proud of our amazing employees who have all worked so hard and contributed to this fantastic achievement. By listening to our teams to better understand the needs of our customers, we are able to ensure that our staff receive the best training and development opportunities to benefit their role, which in turn is enhancing the customer experience.

Other finalists in the category include DePuy Synthes, Burnley College and Rowan Group amongst others so be crowned the winners is an absolute credit to our teams.
