Best collaboration

Best project (Medium) of 2017 - For projects valued between £25m and £50m

Recognises projects that have helped deliver a safer, more reliable railway with greater capacity and efficiency. It is likely that this award will represent the work of a number of suppliers working in partnership to deliver lasting benefits to Britain’s rail network.

Recognises projects that have helped deliver a safer, more reliable railway with greater capacity and efficiency. It is likely that this award will represent the work of a number of suppliers working in partnership to deliver lasting benefits to Britain’s rail network.

Best use of technology

Recognises suppliers who have used new technologies to help transform Britain’s railway. Entries could include new ways of working, cutting-edge technologies or novel approaches to benefit users.

Community engagement

Recognises company, community or charitable-giving programmes that improve local communities in Britain. It is important to show not only the inputs (resources, time, money spent or donated), but also the outputs too, such as the business and social benefits.

Diversity & inclusion

Recognises suppliers who can evidence success in initiatives which recognise and respect differences between people, whilst valuing the contribution everyone can make to the rail industry. Award winners will demonstrate inclusion and evidence safe and welcoming workplaces and fair cultures that encourage innovative and fresh ways of thinking.

Driving efficiencies

Recognises companies who have made strides in designing and delivering work more efficiently, to generate cost savings and value for money to create a more efficient railway. Entries will clearly demonstrate how they have considered safety, reliability, capacity and value for customers and tax payers within their work.

Investing in people

Recognises suppliers who have created an environment that promotes accountability, opportunity and diversity. Organisations will be able to evidence a commitment to developing people, for example, talent, skills, apprenticeship schemes, training and leadership capabilities.

Preserving the history of the railway

The conservation, restoration and promotion of Britain’s rich railway heritage are celebrated here – particularly with regard to Network Rail buildings and structures of national importance.

Putting passengers first

Millions of people rely on the railway to get them to work, home and to friends and family. This new award will celebrate suppliers who have put the needs of rail passengers at the heart of what they do and can demonstrate that they are genuinely putting passengers first.

Safety

Safety should never be taken for granted, and this award highlights organisations that show a continuous improvement towards safety within the workplace and on or near the railway.

SME of the Year

This new award will recognise outstanding SME suppliers with annual turnovers of less than £25m. The winning supplier will need to evidence excellence and innovation in several award category areas such as safety, sustainability, putting passengers first and community engagement as well as being able to demonstrate successful partnerships within the rail industry in 2017.

Sustainable excellence

This award is open to organisations who can clearly demonstrate sustainable and responsible ways of working. It can cover anything from working effectively with lineside neighbours through to carbon off-setting and reduced waste and recycling innovations. Entries should demonstrate how they have actively communicated with stakeholders to improve the reputation of Britain’s railway.
