Sundance Vacations Named to Best Places to Work List in New Jersey

Sundance Vacations has earned the distinction of being named one of the 2012 Best Places to Work in New Jersey!
Best Companies Group will release the official ranking on April 25. “Whether we ultimately rank #1 or #50 we’re incredibly proud of our employees and the jobs they perform for the company each day. Our New Jersey colleagues are the epitome of what it means to be a Sundance Vacations employee. They are professional, honest, fun loving people who all share the common goal of enriching the lives of our customers (and each other) by helping people to experience quality vacations through caring, professional service. In this way, they actually live the Sundance Vacations mission. We thank our New Jersey colleagues for placing their careers in our hands and for the loud, vote of confidence they have cast for the company through the Best Places to Work in New Jersey program,” shared Sundance Vacations founder, Tina Dowd.
The Best Places to Work program provides a very valuable service to the companies that participate.   Best Companies Group administers a 72 question anonymous survey to employees to collect data about each participating company as an employer. Tina Dowd explains, “We receive amazing feedback about our leadership, culture, and areas where we need to improve.”
Sundance Vacations participates in the Best Places to Work process in several states.  Sundance Vacations’ reputation as a top employer is evidenced by the company’s appearance on the Best Places to Work list in Illinois, New Jersey and many times in Pennsylvania. Sundance Vacations also won an American Business Award for the “Best Overall Company” in 2007 and “Employer of the Year” in 2010 for Women in Business. Read about all of the accolades and awards at our website.
