    An Insider's view of Travelers Haven

    How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

    "My work-life balance is the ability to be passionate about both work and life away from work. My purest source of passion is derived from providing for and spending time with my daughter. I am fortunate to love my work, be part of a company that values family, and find joy working with my colleagues."

    Dan

    VP of Strategic Relations

    What projects are you most excited about?

    “We’re encouraged to take on as much ownership and responsibility as we can handle, so we’re able to continuously improve and acquire new skills,” she said. “I’m currently working on a project to automate some manual processes, which should make some of my coworkers’ jobs a lot easier, and that’s the most rewarding thing to me.”

    Kirstie

    Software Engineer

    What are some things you learned at the company?

    The most impactful lesson has been time management. Sales can be overwhelming at times, so having a good system and structured schedule has proved to be extremely beneficial. Travelers Haven also allows their employees to work together to volunteer and contribute to those in need on a larger scale.

    Sales Associate

    How do you empower your team to be more creative?

    As a leader, I want to always provide my team with clear direction but I never want to stifle creativity. So while I may tell them what I need done, I will never tell them how to do it because everyone operates differently and those different methods is what set us apart from other companies.

    Arielle

    Director of Operations

    How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

    I could never be as efficient and effective without our team- through delegation and communication we make sure every facet of the client’s stay is as seamless as possible. Whether it’s coordinating deadlines or brainstorming on issue prevention, we’re always in constant communication.
