PeopleMax would like to Congratulate Sarah for her Fantastic Job on the Nz Bus Project on the 9th and 10th of August while working as and Auckland Transport Ambassador. We have had some fantastic feedback about Sarah while she worked on the St James Dominion Rd bus stop, Sarah was also a Team Leader, Keep up the Great Work.
“I was really impressed at how proactive she was, and in the late afternoon as passenger numbers really increased prior to services resuming, how she continued to be proactive and talk to the steadily growing number of passengers. It takes courage to do that – it can often be too scary or overwhelming for ambassadors and cause them to get quiet and hide. Sarah did a fantastic job, remaining visible in front of all the passengers, keeping open approachable body language so passengers would feel comfortable asking questions. Also her proactive and energetic approach….essential at such a busy stop was there all day long.” Kate Marris Auckland Transport
The International Triathlon World Champs are coming to Auckland in October.
Last time New Zealandhosted an international triathlon event Kiwi Kris Gemmel ran away with first place. Let’s hope for a repeat performance. We’ll have 65 of our part-time workers helping to make the event run smoothly.
August 13th PeopleMax/Action Actors will take place in Rail Safety week as part of Kiwi Rails campaign to promote Rail Safety. Check out what the team will be wearing and keep an eye out around Auckland and Tauranga for them.
In late August EdenPark will again be full of rugby fans for the latest Bledisloe Cup Test between the All Blacks andAustralia. The Australian teams didn’t fare very well in the Super 15, but the Wallabies may be a different proposition. People Max ambassadors will again be on hand be helping the public to get to and from the game.
Electrification continues to be rolled out over theAucklandrail network which is exciting but does come with a few disruptions along the way.
A handful of stations around Auckland were affected with electronic information boards being switched off for a period of time. To compensate, People Max contract staff were on hand to deal with any queries from the public.
It’s an exciting time for those in Panmure, Glen Innes andSt Johnswith the announcement of an $8 million arts and music centre to be built in the area.
An open day was held in the Glen Innes Community Hall where the designer and master planning team discussed plans for the new centre, there were performances by local musicians and dancers and the public was encouraged to take part in the community art station.
Seven People Max part-time workers took part in a flyer drop in these suburbs to invite people along to the open day.
The New Zealand Warriors rugby league team recently paid a visit to theWendysRestaurantin Te Atatu to promote the ‘Sober Driver Sorted?’ campaign.
The campaign was promoting the idea of always organizing a sober driver on a night out. Members of the public could participate in the promotion on Facebook with Wendys vouchers and other prizes up for grabs.
And while the Warriors visited Wendy’s Te Atatu, we had 5 part-time contract workers there to hand out flyers about the campaign and to interact with the public.
A day in early July saw a 9.30am-2pm shutdown of all bus services on the CityLINK, Outer LINK, Metrolink, Go West, Waka Pacific and North Star networks so drivers could attend a union meeting.
Our role was two-fold: People Max contract workers were out on the streets the day before the meeting to pre-warn commuters about the disruptions. Then on the day of the meeting our team were out there to help members of the public find an alternative public transport option – and we’re doing it again this week with another stoppage on Friday. Thursday 9th August the team will again be out and about giving affected users the heads up of a stoppage on Friday 10th August. Just like last time, many NZ Bus users miss out on hearing about the forthcoming stoppage so are very pleased that our Ambassadors are there on location to give them the heads up…
It wasn’t officially confirmed but it’s fairly certain that the Airport Bus service was affected on July 19th because of a private concert by Justin Bieber.
The concert took place at the Cloud on Auckland’s waterfront so the usual pick-up and drop-off point of the Airport Bus service changed location. Two People Max ambassadors were there to redirect passengers to the new stop.
