Sundance Vacations Recognized as one of the Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces in the United States
January 17, 2014, WILKES-BARRE, PA. – Sundance Vacations today announces its recognition as one of the Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces in the United States. This annual award recognizes top employers that display leadership and innovation in engaging their workplaces.
“The Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces understand that employee engagement is not just a buzz word, but that engaged employees provide businesses with a unique competitive advantage. Companies that focus on employee success have better engagement and alignment with business objectives and company values,” said Achievers CEO, Patrick D. Quirk. “These companies serve as role models for other businesses to engage their own employees and build success.”
The Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces Awards panel of judges evaluated each applicant based on the Eight Elements of Employee Engagement: Communication, Leadership, Culture, Rewards & Recognition, Professional & Personal Growth, Accountability & Performance, Vision & Values and Corporate Social Responsibility.
The panel of 14 judges included various academics and thought leaders on employee engagement, and included representation from organizations such as the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), Human Resources Professionals Association (HRPA), and Human Capital Institute (HCI) and Northern California HR Association.
Denise Miller, the General Marketing Manager at Sundance Vacations who played a huge role in the award, had a few words after hearing the news: “We are truly honored to win this award. I think it’s a testament to all the effort that everyone in the company puts in to make this such an engaging environment. It’s so wonderful for the company to be recognized. Not just that, but we also have a lot of fun getting involved! We say it often, but selling vacations doesn’t always feel like a ‘job’ and it shows.”
