We’re delighted to announce that for the sixth consecutive year, Flight Centre UK Ltd has been named one of the UK’s leading workplaces in the coveted Great Place to Work® annual awards.

Placing 20th in the large organisation category (companies with 500+ employees); Flight Centre rose head and shoulders above the competition, being the only travel company to make the list. Great Place to Work® recognised Flight Centre as having a high trust, high engagement workplace culture, achieved through the company’s £2 million investment in staff training and continuous development.

Flight Centre was rigorously assessed via two components: an employee survey and an audit of its management and HR practices. The strength of leadership across the 2,000-strong workforce and the range of innovative, creative and effective HR policies were all credited as the success to Flight Centre’s workplace culture.

Flight Centre UK’s Managing Director, Chris Galanty, said: “To once again be ranked one of the UK’s leading workplaces by Great Place to Work® is a brilliant accomplishment. I’m immensely proud of the whole UK team; it’s their dedication and drive that enables us to deliver exceptional tailor-made travel experiences. Nurturing our team and providing them with the tools to succeed is at the forefront of our company policy and will continue to shape our business moving forward.”

Tom O’Byrne, Great Place to Work® CEO, added: “We are delighted to see Flight Centre on our Best Workplaces list this year. It is a validation of the strength of their leadership and their commitment to creating the kind of culture where employees enjoy coming to work and want to do their best. The hallmark of a great workplace like Flight Centre is that their policies and practices are designed around the employee; this employee focus helps attract and retain the talent essential for driving and sustaining competitive performance.”
