Our Stars throughout the year...

2018 Star of the Year

Michael Bendell

Ops Manager Andy and winner Michael

At our recent 'Night with the Stars of 2018' awards night, held at Southampton's Grand Harbour Hotel, Our April Star of the Month, Michael, was not only crowned as Bluestar's Star of the Year, but went on to scoop the top prize of Go South Coast's Employee of the Year!

Michael was originally picked for the award after being asked to represent Bluestar at a careers event, where he would be encouraging young adults to pursue a career in the transport industry. Despite the volume of attendees, his enthusiasm and professionalism shone through. Michaels interaction with the school children and students in promoting the travel industry proved very popular with them and also the event organisers, who emailed us to say that he is 'a credit to the company'.

January 2019

James Headland

Andy Shaw, James Headland and Damian Robson

James is our first Star of the Month for 2019 after being nominated twice in January.

Firstly, during the closure of the Highfield Bus Interchange, an elderly lady who had been misinformed faced a challenging walk to the nearest alternative bus stop, but luckily James was on hand with a company vehicle and was able to give her a lift - All the way to her home instead!

Secondly, after a lady stepped out in front of James' bus, he received a nomination for the way he handled the situation, despite being very shaken himself. Luckily he was able to stop the bus before he hit the lady, and was more concerned about her welfare and his passengers on board than his own.
