The modern railway depends on excellent teamwork within and across companies and organisations.  The winning entry will demonstrate top class teamwork which shows passion and creativity and delivers innovative ways of working that bring clear benefits to customers which can be extended to the railway as a whole.



Who should enter?

Entries can cover any railway-related activity during the year, and may be submitted by team members, team leaders, managers or customers.  Teamwork, rather than just a group of individuals working together, will be the telling factor.



Judging criteria

The judges will be looking at a range of factors including the following:

  • The scale of the challenge the team has met
  • How fresh thinking and changes in behaviour were generated, within and across organisational boundaries
  • The composition of the team showing how its members have gone beyond normal business practice to deliver outstanding teamwork
  • What lasting benefit the new approach offers for railway users
  • How the initiative has improved safety and value for money

The entries should give quantified evidence in support of these criteria.
