CAMBRIDGE, Mass., August 08, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Great Place to Work® and Fortune magazine have honored SmarterTravel as one of the 2022 Best Small Workplaces. This is SmarterTravel’s first time being named to this prestigious list, this year coming in at 59th place. Earning a spot means that SmarterTravel is one of the best companies to work for in the country.
To determine the Fortune Best Small Workplaces list, Great Place to Work analyzed the survey responses of over 30,000 employees from Great Place to Work-Certified™ companies with 10 to 99 U.S. employees. In that survey, 98% of SmarterTravel’s employees said that the company is a great place to work. This number is 42% higher than the average U.S. company.
"We’re thrilled to be honored by Fortune magazine and Great Place to Work. Building the world’s best travel resource is an adventure every day, and we appreciate being recognized for making something great together," said Jordan Staab, CEO, SmarterTravel. "One of the best reasons to travel is to meet people of all backgrounds, ethnicities and walks of life. That’s also a great reason to choose a company; we value diversity — in backgrounds and in experiences. As it turns out, a happy byproduct of hiring the best people on the planet is the culture they create together. Our people make working here a privilege and I thank them for all they do to earn this incredible honor."
The Fortune Best Small Workplaces list is highly competitive. Great Place to Work is the only company culture award in America that selects winners based on how fairly employees are treated. Companies are assessed on how well they are creating a great employee experience that cuts across race, gender, age, disability status, or any aspect of who employees are or what their role is.
"It’s not the size of an organization that makes it great, but how the organization treats its people," says Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. "And these small workplaces have proven that the inspiring cultures they’ve created go head-to-head with those of any large corporation. Leaders at these companies put their people first, and in return, achieve stronger business results than the average workplace."
