This annual award recognizes top employers that display leadership and innovation in engaging their workplaces.“The companies we honor as the Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces have made the employee experience, engagement and recognition the highest priority. They understand how critical employee engagement is to company performance, and what a competitive advantage it provides,” said Aris Zakinthinos, Achievers General Manager. “The companies on this list serve as role models for other businesses by creating an engagement strategy that cultivates a high-performing workplace.”Engagement has always been and always will be a cornerstone of World Travel Holdings’ employee outreach.

Employees from around the country stepped in to help affected colleagues through the company’s Employee Emergency Assistance Fund. Our employees came together and raised $20,000, which included a $10,000 corporate donation match and helped 30 employees rebuild their homes and lives.“It was truly heartwarming to see our engaged workforce come together and show such support and reassurance for coworkers whom they had never even met before,” said Loren Kennedy, vice president of human resources. “This year, we named our Achievers entry ‘Engaging the Remarkable Way’ because we want to engage our employees the way that they engage our customers and each other — by standing by and embracing our mission to ‘Deliver a Remarkable Experience.’The winners were selected by a panel of esteemed judges comprised of employee engagement academics, industry analysts, thought leaders, journalists and influencers.
