BCD Travel recognized for flexible, digital working environment
TMC listed at #14 in FlexJobs’ top 100 hybrid companies and awarded for global intranet
UTRECHT, The Netherlands, Sept. 21, 2023 – BCD Travel was recently named in FlexJobs’ Top 100 Hybrid Companies to Watch in 2023 for its hybrid workplace offering. The company also won a Silver in the 2023 Intranet and Digital Workplace Awards for its world-class intranet. Both recognitions demonstrate how BCD’s flexible, digital working environment empowers employees to connect and work efficiently around the world.
BCD’s flexible work model plays a key role in the company’s talent management by offering office, remote and hybrid workplaces. Following the pandemic, BCD’s People and Culture team redeveloped their recruitment strategy to focus on building forward sustainably. By blending traditional, tried-and-tested methods such as referral schemes with more creative ways like targeted social media campaigns, BCD added more than 3,000 employees in 2022. Today, BCD has more than 14,000 dedicated team members servicing clients in over 170 countries.
“Our people are at the heart of our organization, and their wellbeing and growth have always been paramount in our journey towards success,” said Christian Dahl, senior vice president of People and Culture at BCD. “Embracing hybrid and virtual work empowers our people to manage their work-life balance and have a more fulfilling and sustainable work experience. It’s allowed us to attract new talent and nurture a culture that values both personal and professional journeys.”
Part of creating a collaborative and efficient workplace is offering the right tools to keep employees informed and engaged no matter where they’re working. MySource, BCD’s global intranet, is key to the company’s engagement strategy. MySource provides a platform for employees to share tips, read communications and listen to messages from senior leadership by using SharePoint Online and other Microsoft 365 tools. The intranet’s team focus on user experience and continuous capability improvements has led to high user adoption and satisfaction. BCD’s efforts with MySource were recognized with two consecutive Silver awards from the Step Two Intranet and Digital Workplace Awards.
“BCD’s strong company culture connects our people around the globe in a largely virtual environment,” said Stephan Baars, president and CEO of BCD. “MySource is a testament to our commitment to offer a flexible and dynamic workplace, meet our people where they are, and contribute to a positive employee experience.” For all BCD’s job opportunities, visit the company’s career page.
