Pushing up performance

ACHIEVING even better performance is high on the list of priorities of engineering manager Mick Reavill – and he is confident that it will happen with Go-Ahead’s help. He said: “We’re proud to think that we already run a well performing operation but I think we will improve even further. “The Go-Ahead team have been brilliant in helping us adapt to their way of working, for instance swapping over to their rota system. All our engineers have welcomed the opportunity to be part of such a large and well-respected organisation. “I’m sure that as our relationship develops there will be plenty of chances to share best practice and learn more from each other.”
