The Welk Resorts, a popular California-based timeshare, has earned this year’s 2012 ACE Employer of the Year Award from the American Resort Development Association (ARDA).
Howard Nusbaum, President and CEO of ARDA, talks about the ACE award, explaining, “It’s about recognizing the ‘best of the best’ in the vacation-ownership industry. It’s an opportunity to take time and applaud the efforts of individuals who have been recognized by their peers for the impact and perseverance they have shown in their professional lives.”
The ACE Employer of the Year Award honors an employer that has demonstrated exceptional commitment to its employees. ARDA selected Welk Resorts because, “They treat their employees like family. From training and continued-learning opportunities to promotion from within the company, rewards for healthy living, and a vacation-donation program, Welk Resorts has a long tradition of giving back to its employees.”
“Winning the ACE Employer of the Year Award is really about our employees—they are who make us shine,” says Jon Fredricks, President and CEO of Welk Resorts, and grandson of company founder, renowned bandleader, and television personality, Lawrence Welk. “We are honored to acknowledge them (Welk employees) in this way. There were over 475 ARDA Award submissions this year and competition was fierce, which makes us doubly proud for receiving this prestigious award.”
