WeTravel certified as Great Place to Work 2022

The global authority on workplace culture and leadership behaviors certifies WeTravel as a Great Place to Work, with 100 percent employee satisfaction.

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – WeTravel -a leading all-in-one booking and payment SaaS and FinTech platform for the multi-day travel industry- announced it’s Certified by Great Place to Work, externally verifying the business’s commitment to its culture and people.

As the global authority on workplace culture, employee experience, and leadership behaviors, Great Place to Work’s anonymous survey results investigate a business’s demographics, leadership and workplace policies, culture, and experiences. The results indicated that 100 percent of the business’s U.S. employees said WeTravel is a great place to work, nearly double the average U.S. company’s rating at 57 percent. Of those surveyed, 100 percent believed leadership is honest and approachable, the same percentage believe diversity, equity and inclusion are important to the business, and the team’s culture is a business priority.

“When we founded WeTravel in 2016, we committed to growing – regardless of how big the business may get – with our people at the forefront of our strategy. We believe better businesses put people first; if you respect current and prospective employees your business will, in turn, find success – because we know valued employees bring their best selves to work,” said Johannes Koeppel, WeTravel’s CEO and co-founder. “We’re thankful for our incredibly diverse employees, who charge our business’s energy and care for each other as much as we care for them.”

To date, WeTravel has more than 75 employees in five continents. Of its employees, more than 50 percent identify as women, more than 20 nationalities are represented, and multi-faceted diversity is represented throughout employees’ experiences.

According to WeTravel’s CEO, the certification is holding the business accountable to continue its commitment to be a Great Place to Work for all its People, highlighting areas it can improve and encouraging the team on what they enjoy about work.

In 2022, WeTravel plans to double its headcount. In its growth, the business has created comprehensive DEI hiring practices – which are automated through a SaaS platform – to ensure equitable and fair hiring practices. The business has introduced volunteer days, adding to its unlimited paid time off policy. The business is reworking its culture and employee benefits packages to reflect its growing team’s needs.

“Great Place to Work Certification isn’t something that comes easily – it takes ongoing dedication to the employee experience,” said Sarah Lewis-Kulin, vice president of global recognition at Great Place to Work. “It’s the only official recognition determined by employees’ real-time reports of their company culture. Earning this designation means that WeTravel is one of the best companies to work for in the country.”
