On 21 September, employees of Diamond Bus North West attended the Bolton News Awards 2023, where the operator was the winner of the ‘Company of the Year’ award in 2022. At this year’s awards, the company was a finalist this year for both Company of the Year and the Wellbeing award. Although it missed out on being named Company of the Year, the night was not a disappointment as it took home the Wellbeing Award, which focuses on how a company recognises and champions the incredible steps taken to create an environment for their employees to succeed and gain job satisfaction.

In June 2023 the company gained recognition by becoming the first bus operator in Greater Manchester to be awarded membership status with the Greater Manchester Good Employment Charter, a scheme that is working to improve employment standards across the region. Diamond Bus said that the Wellbeing Award demonstrates that commitment to its people agenda and employee engagement strategy.

Group Head of HR Emma Woods commented: “Winning the Wellbeing Award at the Bolton News Awards 2023 is a real achievement and builds on a fantastic year for the company. I am delighted that we have been recognised for all our efforts to create and provide an exceptional environment for our employees. I am looking forward to continuing building on the last 12 months achievements and will continue to focus on our ‘People’ agenda and driving forward employee engagement.”
