Last week, British Columbia Rapid Transit Company (BCRTC) President Vivienne King, donned her reflective vest and steel toed boots to walk a mile (or likely many miles) in a SkyTrain Attendant (STA)’s shoes.
This group is sister to the benchmarking bus group (IBBG) of which CMBC is a member. The purpose of these groups is to share experiences, compare performance, identify best practices and learn from one another in order to improve performance.
Much like the IBBG survey, this survey looks at overall customer satisfaction, service quality, performance and more!
Members of the Nova benchmarking group:
Bangkok MRT (Bangkok Expressway and Metro Company Limited – BEM
Demonstrating creativity and innovation through engaging and exciting activities for visiting students
Supporting and explaining career choices and benefits of early career exploration
It was a very competitive process, but TransLink, along with 14 other outstanding organizations, stood out to the selections committee.
TransLink and its operating companies were chosen “For providing students with engaging and interactive opportunities to explore career options and learn about TransLink, Coast Mountain Bus Company, BCRTC and Transit Police as a future workplace. Students were given a tour of TransLink’s new Mark III train and received an in-depth look at technology that powers TransLink trains. They even got the opportunity to work with a K9 unit in Transit Police and the Fire Prevention Technicians that oversees fire prevention across the transit network.”
TransLink is honoured as an Enterprise to accept Canada’s Outstanding Employer 2016 Award for our participation in this annual event of fun, learning and exploring transit jobs.
We can’t wait until next year to host more eager students looking to get behind-the-scenes job experience in the world of public transit!
