Travel Homeworking Responsible Recruitment

Since being named as TTG’s Top Homeworking Agency of the Year just a few weeks ago, our inhouse Recruitment Exec Agne has been super busy!

New travel homeworking enquiries have been coming in thick and fast the result of which is some great people lined up to join the award winning Holidaysplease Homeworking Team over the next few weeks.

We’ve also had to let down a few people. Why? Well firstly we are fussy. You don’t achieve the Trustpilot customer services ratings we do at Holidaysplease without a great deal of commitment and expertise from our homeworking team. We cannot afford to take on anything but the best.

And secondly, we recruit responsibly. The easy option for us would be to sell the dream and paint an irresistible picture of homeworking being a land filled with milk and honey where the sales just flow in and commission is easily earned.

If only that were true! And as it is not true we don’t take the easy option. We tell it as it is!

Yes, over time by doing the right things consistently well and working with real commitment you can build an amazing homeworking business with Holidaysplease, and many of our team have done so. But it is no easy ride.

When recruiting it is our responsibility to be sure in our minds that every person that we invite to join the Holidaysplease Travel Homeworking team has a realistic chance of achieving the goals and rewards to which they aspire.

If we are not sure that someone can achieve what they want as a Travel Homeworker with Holidaysplease then it would be irresponsible for us to take them on board.

Should you be a travel expert with a strong desire to build a homeworking business of your own with TTG’s Top Homeworking Agency of the Year then please drop Agne a line on agne@holidaysplease.com or call her on 0121 200 5720.

Just don’t expect anything other than an honest, to the point, open conversation!

Holidaysplease Top Homeworking Agency

A year on from Holidaysplease being named as the Top Online Agency, we have now won the prestigious Top Homeworking Agency Award at the TTG Top 50 awards.

I’m sure there were a multitude of reasons why the judges chose Holidaysplease  😉

Announcing Holidaysplease as the winner Mike from Fred Olsen made particular reference to the close relationship we have with our team and the things we do as a company to look after and develop our people at HQ and our homeworkers.

Mike also highlighted the work we have done on our email marketing as part of our unique customer rewards programme which over 10,000 customers have now signed up to.

Each of these customers receives a regular communication from us which is individually tailored to the holiday likes and preferences they have shared with us.

The rewards programme and subsequent tailored emails has resulted in a significant increase in our repeat booking ratios….which of course has put lots of extra pounds in the pockets of the Holidaysplease Homeworking Team!

The award is the culmination of 14 years of hard work from the whole team.

From humble beginnings bouncing ideas across a kitchen table, to a multi-Million Pound business involving over 100 people, at Holidaysplease we have always looked to think differently, be innovative and deliver a fantastic service to our customers.

From a trading perspective 2017 has started superbly for the Holidaysplease Travel Homeworking Team with sales overall up 34% year on year.

And Holidaysplease being named the Top Online Travel Agency of the year at the TTG Top 50 Awards is a lovely pat on the back of recognition for the Holidaysplease Homeworkers and all the team based at HP HQ.
