Best Workplaces in Travel invites entries for 2024

An initiative aimed at recognising travel top employers is urging companies in the sector to enter its 2024 awards scheme.

Launched in two years ago, Best Workplaces in Travel aims to help drive employee engagement, share insights and showcase the travel industry as an aspirational workplace.

Its survey asks employees what is important to them and staff then rate their employer about its performance in several areas.

Entrants will receive a comprehensive employee survey and insights, formulated by talent technology partner, Korero.

The top 30 employers will be recognised at an awards reception in London on June 10, 2024.

Last year’s winners were: Small Company – Panache Cruises; Mid-Size Company – easyJet holidays; and Large Company – Jet2holidays.

In 2023, it saw a 50% increase in entries, with more than 5,000 employees completing the survey.

Travel companies can apply to participate with an early-bird offer to enter at last year’s prices between December 4-31, after which 2024 prices will increase slightly to reflect the evolution of the technology and resources.

A new micro company category (between 10 and 19 employees) has been created for start-ups, with an entry price of £220.

Entry for small companies (between 20 and 49 employees) costs £300; mid-size firms (between 50 and 249 employees) will pay £450; and the entry price for large companies (over 250 employees) is £600.

The scheme is expanding again in 2024 by inviting the inbound and expedition cruise sectors to participate.

Supporters of the scheme are Focus Travel Partnership, the Association of Car Rental Industry Systems Standards (Acriss), UKInbound and Expedition Cruise Network.

They join last year’s brand ambassadors: Aito, the Business Travel Association, Abtot, Clia and Future You Foundation.
