Expedia has been named as the best place to work in the UK.
The online travel giant has topped the UK listings in annual employee choice awards.
The awards are based solely on the input of staff who voluntarily provide anonymous feedback by completing a company review about their job, work environment and employer over the past year.
Expedia was described by a company finance manager as having a “strong, friendly work culture.”
Work life balance is seen as very important by all in the business.
“Very supportive management team. So many perks! Free breakfast once a month, travel, health etc,” the manager wrote.
Expedia was ranked above Hays, Akqa, GE and Schuh in the top five, while Google in the UK came in eighth place and easyJet 12th.
Airbnb topped the US listings with Expedia in 16th position and Delta Air Lines 21st and Southwest Airlines 42nd.
The eighth annual workplace awards are run by jobs and recruitment marketplace Glassdoor.
Chief executive and co-founder, Robert Hohman, said: “The Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards are the only workplace awards that recognise employers where people love to work solely based on the authentic voice of those who really know a company best – the employees.
“For anyone hoping to find a job and company they love, these companies stand tallest for providing outstanding work environments and company cultures.”Gary Morrison, senior vice president of Expedia Retail, said: “Being named as Glassdoor UK’s Best Place to Work for 2016 is a true honour particularly because this distinction is based solely on feedback from our employees.”
“The fact that we moved from #25 to #1 on Glassdoor’s list in a single year is a major achievement. Our employees are passionate about travel and are relentless in finding innovative ways to improve our customers’ experience. This recognition is a testament to them.”
