Cruise Planners has once again earned the distinction of being named a "Top Workplace" by South Florida's The Sun Sentinel. As the biggest home-based travel franchise business in the US and an American Express Travel Representative, Cruise Planners made the 2016 list thanks to stellar employee feedback, which makes the accolade unique since employees tend to measure satisfaction differently.
Co-Founder and CEO Michelle Fee says the company is feeling inspired after earning the award again. According to Fee, the travel franchiser prioritizes employee engagement, which means their team is able to maximize potential in all areas of the business. In fact, the company has a name for the positive environment they work to create for each person and their franchisees: "CruisitudeTM."
The "Top Workplaces" list is based entirely on the results of a feedback survey conducted by leading workplace improvement research firm WorkplaceDynamics, LLC. Workplace CEO Doug Claffey says the accolade is not a "popularity contest." Instead, he says that his company's research has shown that a belief in where the organization is going, how it's getting there, and a strong team spirit are what make a business an award contender.
An ideal franchisee for one of the Cruise Planners franchise opportunities is a person with a passion for travel and a team-based, positive attitude. The franchise also places value on giving back to local communities through its CP Care outreach program and has worked with other nonprofits while encouraging employee participation.
Currently, this industry-leading brand has franchise opportunities available all across the country. Travel experience is not required, and the company provides full training and support. Named a "low cost" franchise by CNBC.com, the initial investment ranges from $2,095 to $22,667.
