On top of that, it’s the 7th year that we’ve placed in a top 20 position – something we are incredibly proud of. The Randstad award is unique in that it’s based purely on public perception and recognises which organisations New Zealanders perceive as the most attractive employers in the country. At House of Travel, we strive to not only invest in our company image, reputation and employer brand, but also our people, customers and culture, so it’s a great honour that we are consistently recognised as one of New Zealand’s most attractive employers. It goes without saying we are all delighted to have such a significant award in the trophy cupboard.
Hospice New Zealand
House of Travel and Hospice New Zealand
have been national partners for more than 15 years; an association that we are extremely proud of, and which continues to go from strength to strength. Over the past decade, House of Travel stores throughout the country have supported their local hospices in ways as diverse as their communities; raising both funds and awareness and helping to educate the public about the services hospice provides. The partnership also provides unique character and team-building opportunities for House of Travel teams. House of Travel CEO Mark O’Donnell says, “The work Hospice does to provide physical and emotional care for people with life limiting illnesses and their families is close to all of our hearts.” House of Travel is fiercely proud to be New Zealand owned and operated. We understand New Zealanders and take great pride in the contribution we make to this country and Hospice New Zealand. We are committed to the communities which House of Travel stores and local hospice partners are located in.
World Animal Protection
House of Travel is proud to have signed World Animal Protection’s elephant-friendly tourism pledge in early 2017. This makes House of Travel the largest New Zealand travel agency to commit not to sell, offer or promote venues or activities involving elephant rides and shows. Wildlife can be part of the experience of travel, much like food and culture, but it can be hard for tourists to know what is happening to animals at tourist attractions behind closed doors.
