Forbes names BCD Travel among America’s Best Employers of 2015
ATLANTA, April 13, 2015 – Forbes magazine has named BCD Travel among America’s Best Employers 2015—and the only travel management company in that elite group.
The popular U.S. business magazine based its designation on an independent survey by Statista.com of 20,000 American employees working for U.S. companies and U.S. divisions of international firms with a minimum of 2,500 employees. Forbes listed BCD Travel at no. 462 on the list.
“We rely on quality service provided by experienced, well-trained experts. The corporate travel industry is highly competitive, and we want to be the top choice of places to work among those looking for good jobs in our industry,” said John Snyder, BCD Travel president and CEO. “We highly value our employees and put tremendous focus on helping them grow in their jobs.”
For the Statista.com survey, respondents were asked if they would recommend their employer to someone else.
“I’m convinced that our efforts to help our employees build confidence in themselves and succeed in their jobs increases employee engagement and job satisfaction,” said Christian Dahl, senior vice president of Strategic Talent Management & Global Human Resources. “Last year we rolled out our new competency model, renewing our focus on advancing the skills of our 11,000-plus staff globally. That model—through informal learning, on-the-job experience, manager coaching and formal training—ensures that all our employees will have the skills they need to provide outstanding services and to feel great about their contributions to our success.”
