CORAL SPRINGS, Fla., Oct. 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Cruise Planners, an American Express Travel Representative, was recently honored with the Gold award by Franchise Business Review as part of the 2021 Franchising@WORK Awards. The awards recognize franchise companies with the highest employee satisfaction based on an independent survey of their corporate franchise home office team.

Participants were asked 24 core benchmark questions related to job satisfaction, engagement, management, brand leadership, and culture, as well as detailed personal questions about their position, compensation, benefits, and demographics.  To make the list of Gold Award Winners, companies must have an extremely positive response on the anonymous employee survey.

Cruise Planners CEO and Founder, Michelle Fee, has high standards for a positive corporate culture at Cruise Planners.  She set the bar over 25 years ago and the Cruise Planners Home Office Team have embraced it ever since, supporting and building the largest network of home-based travel advisors in the nation.

"Who we are drives what we do," says Michelle Fee, "and with all that we do, we do it with what we've coined as Cruisitude ®; a positive outlook on life and travel.  There are many travel companies, but one of the main factors that distinguishes us from any other company is our people and our culture."
