About TfGM

Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) is a not-for-profit organisation responsible for co-ordinating transport across the ten local districts.

TfGM oversees transport and travel across Greater Manchester, home of the UK's largest regional economy outside London and a diverse population. They do this by working closely with a wide range of organisations; including commercial bus operators, the metrolink operator KAM, train operating companies, Network Rail, Highways England, and the 10 local authorities.

Employees at TfGM are key to their success, and with increasing responsibilities, due to Northern Powerhouse and Devolution, transport is vital to the growth and success of the region. They have a range of roles across the organisation that require different skills and experience.

'Going the Extra Mile' recognises colleagues who bring their values to life in the most exceptional ways. All nominees get an instant recognition email and those that really went the extra mile will get further recognition, as judged by the peer panel made up of a cross section of employees.

The scheme is all about acknowledging employees for doing just that; going the extra mile. If they feel an individual that they work with has gone above and beyond in living and being motivated by their values, then they are able to formally recognise them.

It is more than just an ego boost as all nominations are reviewed and any stand-out nominations will also receive extra recognition as part of the quarterly rewards.
