Best Workplaces in Travel is back!

Following the phenomenal success of Best Workplaces in Travel 2022, both leisure and business travel companies are being invited to participate in this unique and insightful employee engagement survey to be recognised as one of the Best Workplaces in Travel 2023.

Best Workplaces in Travel remains the only employee engagement survey dedicated to the travel industry and is the only survey that asks its employees what’s important to them first and foremost. The employees then tell us how their employer performs in these areas, plus answer half a dozen killer questions including an employee net promoter score.


Travel companies can apply to participate with an early bird offer to enter at last years’ prices through to the end of January, when 2023 prices will increase to reflect the evolvement of the technology and resources behind this great people initiative.


The early bird pricing represents exceptional value:

Small company size (between 10 and 50 employees) entry price £200 per company

Medium company size (between 51 and 249 employees) entry price £350 per company

Large company size (over 250 employees) entry price £500 per company

Business Travel and Cruise

For 2023 we will also be inviting businesses travel companies or TMC’s to participate. There has never been more reason to collaborate when it comes to showcasing our industry to potential employees. We feel that huge learnings can be achieved by leisure and business industries working together.

Clive Wratten, CEO of the Business Travel Association (BTA) said “The BTA is delighted to support the introduction of Travel Management Companies into the Best Workplaces in travel initiative. We want to show more people why the business travel sector is a great place to build a career. To have employee feedback on what they look for from a great employer is important and can only help widen the appeal to join the travel management industry”.

In addition, after receiving interest from several major cruise brands, we will be including this strategically important sector in the 2023 survey and awards.

Andy Harmer, CEO of Cruise Line International Association (CLIA) said “"We're delighted to support the Best Workplaces in Travel. The cruise industry continues to offer fantastic opportunities to its staff, which we're eagerly anticipating being recognised.

"We're also looking forward to seeing what individuals and teams consider important, and how we can help meet and exceed their expectations.

"We continue to work collaboratively across the industry, both to showcase what a great sector cruise is to build a career in, as well as reward and recognise our dedicated and inspiring employees."
