Summer SPIRIT

Monday 9 July 2018
The Translink SPIRIT guides our business; a set of core values that help us lead, inspire and deliver our vision ‘To Be Your First Choice for Travel in Northern Ireland’.

 
 
 

"Taking steps to support employee and customer wellbeing"

One engaging way we can embrace these values is through the SPIRIT of Translink Facility Awards which have been launched in partnership with Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful.

More than 40 of our facilities have entered the Awards this year which aim to celebrate your positive and lasting contribution to corporate responsibility by embracing 4 core themes – Go Safe, Go Eco, Go Healthy and Go Together.

Judging will assess key criteria including resource efficiency, energy and carbon, biodiversity, health and wellbeing activities, stakeholder engagement as well as employee culture, behaviour and leadership. 

As One Translink One Team we all have a responsibility to help make our work space more attractive in terms of staff and customer wellbeing and safety while also ensuring we’re as environmentally-responsible as possible. This approach helps make us one of Northern Ireland’s leading businesses in terms of corporate responsibility.

I’d like to wish everyone good luck with the assessments and look forward to sharing results later this year.

Another important way we support our Go Healthy business approach is through our Employee Wellbeing Strategy. Our Wellbeing theme for 2018 is ‘Developing Resilience’ – an important quality for dealing with challenging circumstances and something everyone can take steps to achieve. Take a look at the schedule of Wellbeing Events for July to October featuring everything from fitness classes to healthy breakfasts and Mindfulness sessions.

Our colleagues in Foyle have shown us another great example of Translink SPIRT in action this summer. They were recently recognised by Derry City and Strabane District Council for completing World Host Ambassador training. Designed to provide key skills to handle a wide range of customers from all over the world, our colleagues are taking valuable steps to enhance the visitor experience in Northern Ireland.

I’m also happy to announce the winner of our first ever Bus and Train Week ‘Spirit of Translink’ colleague award.  Well done to Eddie Campbell (Rail Cross Border Manager) who received multiple nominations from his colleagues to be recognised as someone who continually goes above and beyond, sharing the Translink SPIRIT with both customers and employees.
