Milford, MA – In the 2nd Annual Inc. Hire Power Awards, recognizing the private businesses in the U.S. that have generated the most jobs in the past 18 months, Atlas Travel has ranked #4 in the Top 10 Travel & Hospitality Companies nationwide and #10 in the Top 10 Massachusetts companies across all industries. The magazine calls the 437 companies on this list, “Heroes of the U.S. Economy.”
“We are extremely pleased to be recognized in this way,” said Atlas Travel & Technology Group CEO Elaine Osgood. “Growth is positive, but strategic expansion is even more important and that is what we have been focused on since early 2012.”
Atlas Travel, which is also on the five-time Inc. 5000 Honor Roll, offers global corporate travel management and vacation planning, as well as meeting, incentive, convention and event (MICE) services. As a top-tier affiliate for BCD Travel, one of the largest global travel organizations in the world, Atlas Travel is known for its superior travel technology development, as well as scalable travel management solutions for companies with travel spend ranging from $300,000 to $20 million.
While the travel management company’s headquarters is located in Massachusetts, and their brand is immediately recognized in the Northeast, Atlas Travel has expanded over the past year with new business development and program management hubs in Chicago/Midwest and the Washington, DC/Mid-Atlantic regions. In addition, the travel leader has added a specialized industry focus on serving the fashion and retail industries.
“We have added people in almost every department over the past year,” said Osgood. “From travel technology to program management, and administration to marketing communications, we are growing our team. I have believed since day one that people will be the key to our success. As we evolve our technology, services and programs, it is our people who bring excellence to our business and propel us to reach the next level. It starts with vision, and then it takes expertise to implement the strategies that allow us to go beyond what we have achieved before. I’m very excited to be in this stage of our development.”
In addition to adding seasoned travel veterans, Atlas Travel’s growth has also focused on programs to help nurture the next generation of the travel industry, participating in internships, mentoring and the hiring of young talent.
“A business cannot thrive without identifying bright young individuals who will carry the torch for the next generation,” said Osgood. “A significant part of our hiring has been focused in this area and it brings a whole new level of energy to the organization.”
