Our commitment to advancing our strong employee experience helps us develop an adaptable and sustainable workforce.
Christian defines and leads our company-wide employee experience initiatives and heads our human resources groups worldwide. In that role, he defines the company’s people strategy, employer branding, learning and development, talent development programs and talent acquisition.
Under his leadership BCD Travel became the first travel management company to reach for and achieve accreditation from Investors in People®, a globally recognized workplace ratings firm. BCD has regularly been included among the companies named to Forbes’ list of America’s Best Employers and FlexJobs’ list of Top Companies with Remote Jobs. The company was selected for a 2017 Stevie® Award for its multi-year Confident Self approach to talent management. That approach links recruitment, professional development and employee satisfaction to increase service quality and client satisfaction.
By strategically enhancing the opportunities for BCD employees, Christian has overseen a rise in employee engagement by more than 5.3% since 2014 and a doubling in the hours per employee spent on training—including the strengthening of BCD’s middle management for better leadership capabilities at all levels.
