World Travel Holdings moves up two spots and ranks in the top 50 companies hiring remote workers
Wilmington, Mass. (January 25, 2018) — World Travel Holdings is proud to announce that for the fourth year in a row it has been named to FlexJobs’ annual list of the 100 Top Companies to Watch for Remote Jobs in 2018. This list is based on an analysis of more than 49,000 companies and their remote job posting histories in the FlexJobs database. World Travel Holdings is one of 100 companies that had the highest number of remote job openings on the FlexJobs site in 2017. To be considered, the jobs offered by these companies had to be remote-friendly, either allowing for candidates to telecommute entirely or part of the time.
“For more than a decade, we have been recruiting, hiring and training for work-at-home positions and we are honored to be recognized as a leader in the remote jobs industry,” said Loren Kennedy, vice president of Human Resources for World Travel Holdings. “Because more than 80 percent of our employee base works from home, we are focused on providing telecommuting and scheduling options to create a healthy work/life balance that work for our employees and keep them engaged.”
World Travel Holdings hires for jobs with remote work options such as Travel Professional, Customer Care Representative and Franchise Sales Specialist, and has been recognized as a leader in the industry. In 2017, the company virtually recruited, hired and trained just under 400 employees.
“As leaders in the remote job industry, FlexJobs has once again taken a dedicated look at which companies job seekers should pay close attention to as they search for a better, more flexible job –one that allows them to lead fulfilling professional lives and also enjoy the other commitments, like family, health, volunteering, and travel, that are important to having fulfilling personal lives,” said Sara Sutton Fell, founder and CEO of FlexJobs. “In reviewing this data annually for five years and in working with hundreds of companies across different industries, we’ve seen remote work transform into a much more mainstream mode of working. Now, as more companies accept and integrate telecommuters into their business models, 2018 is an ideal time for job seekers to pursue their search for a better, more flexible job.”
