Five Western Australian personal travel managers (PTMs) were recognised for five years of service at TravelManagers third bi-annual state meeting in Perth last week.
That over thirty percent of PTMs and twenty-five percent of the Western Australian network have been with the company for more than five years, is no surprise to executive general manager Michael Gazal.
“TravelManagers is a company that really cares about its people and recognising talent and providing opportunities for growth is of absolute importance to us. We provide training, famils, technical support and mentorship, amongst other things. The ability to be your own boss with the freedom and flexibility to work how and when you choose, we know works.”
PTM Lesley Cavill representative for Mosman received her five-year milestone award at the state meeting.
“Having just reached five years in partnership with TravelManagers, I really appreciate the opportunities that the company presents and obtain significant value from the state meetings. It’s also a fabulous chance to network with my colleagues and further develop our relationships in a warm, welcoming and supportive environment.”
Gazal said the key focus for the state meetings is to ensure that everybody aware of developments in the business.
“We’ve been holding local state meetings with our personal travel managers twice yearly for the last nine years. These meetings are designed to complement our national annual conference as we believe consistency and providing relevance and adding value is the reason we obtain extremely high participation rates across all states.”
Following the morning’s business sessions, the PTM’s along with ten national partnership office staff and four partner suppliers enjoyed a Christmas lunch.
