Cruise.co.uk has been crowned the best company to work for in the travel industry in WorkAdvisor’s annual awards.
The company won the Travel Employer of the Year 2016 award after gaining the highest overall score from its employees.
WorkAdviser allows staff to review and rate their employers anonymously under six measures, including motivation, career development and job security.
Hays Travel came in second place and last year’s winner Iglu, and its sister company Planet Cruise came third.
Cruise.co.uk managing director Seamus Conlon said: “We are delighted to be awarded the WorkAdvisor 2016 Travel Employer of the Year, we value our people immensely and it’s reassuring to hear that they rate us so highly.
“We featured very well in two key areas – “employee motivation” and “recommendation” (to a friend or colleague) this tells us a lot about our business and where we are getting it right for our people.
“Reviews form a large part of what we do so we understand their value to both consumers and employees alike.”
Cruise.co.uk won two further awards by finishing top of the employee motivation and recommendation categories.
Hays Travel also won the awards for career development and job security, while digital marketing agency AddMustard was the most sociable place to work.
WorkAdvisor chairman Philip Price said: “The opinions of a company’s work force are very influential when employees are considering their next move.
“In so many areas of life, we look for reviews and opinions from other people and this is now the case in the workplace.
“People find a job on our site and then look to see what employees really think of that company. Fortunately for employers, 75% of reviews on the site are positive.
“Cruise.co.uk has always been ahead of the game in knowing the value of reviews and a big part of their success is the way they look after their employees, which leads to excellent reviews.”
