Companies from around the region submitted entries in a competition run by The Journal newspaper, with entries being judged on factors including policies for staff development, community involvement, perks and bonuses, and looking after workers’ physical and mental health.
Hays Travel came in 12th position in the final list.
The initiative is part of ncjMedia’s Invest in the North East campaign, which aims to make the North East a better place in which to live and work.
Hays Travel retail and training director, Jane Schumm, said: “I’m absolutely delighted that we have yet again been recognised as a company that looks after its employees and is a great place to work. Staff development and satisfaction is one of our top priorities and we continue to invest heavily in career-long training and coaching. Providing continued support for staff health and wellbeing is also extremely important to us, and we recently signed the Time to Change pledge committing to raising awareness of mental health issues in the workplace.”
