Translink launches employee engagement app in partnership with Thrive.App

  • Translink has announced a partnership with Thrive.App, which has helped develop the public transport provider's ‘Spirit’ app, available to all of its employees.

    The app will be used to help over 4,000 Translink employees working across multiple locations in rail, bus, engineering and support teams, to communicate and share information, including news, rotas, timetable changes, personalised content and social interactions.

    Chris Conway, Group Chief Executive of Translink said that through the 'Spirit' app, "employees can now easily access the information they need to support them in their role, and there’s increased understanding and awareness of what’s happening in all areas of the business", adding that "this has been particularly important as we worked through the Covid-19 crisis."

    "By working in partnership with Thrive.App we have been able to extend our app beyond communications and engagement to streamlining some of our internal processes," he continued. 

    "We are now able to share rotas and scheduling updates with our train drivers and we are continuously adding other new elements to the app. Thrive.App continues to help with new ways for us to embed the app across our organisation and increase usage.”

    James Scott, CEO and Co-Founder of Thrive said "it’s great to work alongside Translink as their trusted employee app partner. Our goal is to help organisations in shifting their communications from traditional methods such as printed newsletters, notice boards and team briefings, to instant, modern, secure apps and we are delighted to help Translink achieve this and more.”
