Breckenridge Grand Vacations Included in Denver’s Top Workplaces
Thursday, June 4, 2015
Breckenridge Grand Vacations (BGV) has been recognized by the Denver Post as one of Denver’s top workplaces for 2015. This is the second year that the vacation ownership company has been included on the list.
The businesses recognized by this Denver Post list are chosen based on employee surveys. The post surveyed all 480 BGV employees.
Some statements from BGV employees include:
- “I feel appreciated by management and the company.”
- “I love the people I work with and have a wonderful manager!”
- “It’s very challenging, interesting, and I work for a great boss and with a great team.”
The Denver Post feels that companies that receive this honor are not only great places to work, but are likely more successful organizations.
Breckenridge Grand Vacations shares that their success and employees’ happiness is based on their “Bottom Up Management System.” In this approach, the company is run through a pyramid structure, where management sits at the bottom of the pyramid to support their employees. Customers are placed at the very top of the pyramid, so that they are supported by both the managers and the staff.
The company’s beliefs can also be seen in the company motto, “We are the best in sales because we are the best in service.” Breckenridge believes that their members should feel more like family. As a team, they focus on providing their customers with a “Grand Vacation” each time that they travel.
The organization also provides fantastic benefits to their employees. They offer medical, vision, and dental insurance, a 401K program, FSA/HSA, tuition reimbursement, and annual profit sharing options. In addition to this, employees receive perks such as free ski lift tickets and company parties.
BGV not only supports their customers and their employees, but the community as well. Recently, developers Mike Dudick, Mike Millisor, and Rob Millisor donated $1 million to The Summit Foundation, the largest nonprofit in Summit County. These funds will help The Summit Foundation continue to support students and other nonprofits in Summit, Park, Lake, and Grand counties. Employees also donate $75,000 a year through payroll contributions.
Millisor shared, “We want to ensure funding remains available to the local nonprofits that are so critical to the town we call home.”
