World Travel HoldingsWorld Travel Holdings, the world’s largest cruise agency and award-winning leisure travel company, has been awarded a 2016 Top Workplaces honor by The Sun Sentinel for the second year in a row. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few.

“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits.” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”

World Travel Holdings prides itself in providing its employees a fun and inviting culture as well as competitive benefits. From personal work anniversary phone calls from executives and transparency in how the company is performing against its goals to travel discounts and celebrating its employees’ achievements, the company’s South Florida employees highlighted their appreciation through the Top Workplaces Survey.

“Our Co-CEOs Brad and Jeff Tolkin and entire leadership team believe that our employees are our number one asset,” said Loren Kennedy, vice president of human resources for World Travel Holdings. “That is why culture and employee engagement are both cornerstones of our company.”

Debbie Fiorino, senior vice president of Dream Vacations/CruiseOne and Cruises Inc. for World Travel Holdings accepted the award and said, “I was honored to receive this award on behalf of the entire company, particularly because the true judges were our employees.”

World Travel Holdings’ owns and operates 20 travel brands including two franchises and one host-agency, Dream Vacations/CruiseOne and Cruises Inc., respectively, which are headquartered in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. Dream Vacations, which launched in April 2016, gives its franchisees and future franchise owners a brand that speaks to all types of vacation experiences. At the time of launch, more than half of CruiseOne franchise owners changed their business name to Dream Vacations.
