BCD Travel was shortlisted as a top 10 finalist for 2018 Silver Employer of the Year by Investors in People, a globally recognized workplace ratings firm from whom BCD previously earned silver accreditation for its workplace practices. IIP ratings set the standard for what it takes to lead, support and manage people well for sustainable results. More than 14,000 businesses and organizations across 75 countries have been accredited by IIP since 1991.

“I am proud of us as a team, and as an organization, as we continue to stack up well globally as an employer of choice,” said Christian Dahl, BCD’s senior vice president of Strategic Talent Management & Global Human Resources. “The recognition validates all of the effort we’re putting into making BCD a great place to build a career and to attract exceptional employees who put our customers first.”

Last year, BCD became the first travel management company to earn IIP accreditation. The ratings firm compared BCD’s performance against a proven, 27-scale framework of talent-management success.  BCD was shortlisted for the Employer of the Year category for organizations with 250 employees or more based on their silver designation.

BCD was also named to Forbes’ 2018 list of America’s Best Employers For Women and to Newsweek and Statista’s list of America’s Best Companies for Customer Service. The TMC has been praised for workplace flexibility and remote working opportunities. Globally, about a third of employees work from home; in the U.S., 72% of the workforce is virtual. Last year, the company was recognized for its Confident Self initiative for employee development.
