Celebrating the best workplaces in travel

Best Workplaces in Travel is the brainchild of our founder, Gail Kenny, who also founded the leading travel industry recruiter in 2004.

Our Mission is to help showcase the travel industry as a brilliant sector to work in. Together we want to better understand the issues that are most imporant to employees within the industry and give a platform to organisations that go the extra mile make themselves great places to work.

An ambitious task, but something we feel passionate and care about.

Driving engagement through our unique survey

Attracting, engaging and retaining talent has never been more business critical. The best way to do this is employee advocacy, hence why we now invite brilliant travel brands to take part in a unique employee engagement survey asking your people what is important them first and foremost.

The data generated not only allows leaders to measure
engagement levels, but also provides the insights you need to make smart decisions when it comes to your people strategy.
