Website makeover communicates the company's reputation as a leader in the travel industry.

Wilmington, Mass. (PRWEB) October 31, 2012

World Travel Holdings (WTH), one of the nation's top travel agencies, launched today a completely revamped company website that communicates its reputation as a leader in the travel industry while providing a visually appealing and improved online experience.

Visitors to the site will find dynamic travel images, a host of information on World Travel Holdings and a variety of career opportunities including work from home positions. Also completely new to this site — World Travel Holdings' full-service, private-label solutions for travel companies looking to grow their business, and the company's international presence in the United Kingdom.

“As one of the travel industry's leading travel agencies, the web technology we employ is essential to the service we deliver,” said Jamie Cash, senior vice president of technology for World Travel Holdings. “Leading-class web technology has the power to transform our relationships with our customers and employees making it seamless for our customers to book their dream vacation and giving our employees the tools to deliver a remarkable experience.”

The new website features a vibrant home page that focuses on three key areas …

Travel Industry Powerhouse – the site tells the story of World Travel Holdings including the company's history, community involvement, accolades and who's who on the leadership team.

Love Your Job – the careers section covers everything from the benefits of working in the travel industry, the company's culture and the array of different career opportunities including work from home, franchise, independent agent, travel professional, technology positions and more.

Strategic Business Partnerships – the services World Travel Holdings offers partners including leading-class technology, marketing expertise and remarkable customer service.

In April, World Travel Holdings also launched a new intranet. Branded “Voyager, Your Gateway to Delivering a Remarkable Experience,” the company's new intranet is visually appealing, user-friendly and boasts a number of social media tools that keep employees involved. From Facebook-like employee walls and discussion boards to blogs and interactive quick polls, the new intranet has been a key initiative in increasing employee engagement.

“An engaged workforce is one of our Company's three primary goals, and with the implementation of our new intranet, we have seen an increase in our employees engaging with each other online and with our Executives on a variety of topics through our intranet's discussion board,” said Debbie Fiorino, senior vice president of Human Resources.

World Travel Holdings' intranet is currently in the running for the “My Beautiful Intranet (Goes Social)” Award.
