The Best Companies accreditation programme is a tangible framework for benchmarking and improvement that recognises organisations that achieve a high enough Best Companies Index (BCI) score. Rankings are based on those with the highest BCI scores.

OAG was recognised for its effective and consistent communication initiatives, its approach to attracting new talent and its response to workplace challenges during the pandemic.
“Few markets were as disrupted during the pandemic as the travel industry was, so we made it our mission to instill resiliency in our employees and to focus on becoming a part of the solution,” said Phil Callow, CEO of OAG. “With strong employee relationships, no matter the role or level, we adapted and grew in the face of adversity. Because our employees were empowered and positive, they could continue to provide our customers with the data and insights that allowed them to stay afloat and succeed in a time of upheaval and uncertainty. By focusing on the needs of a recovering sector, we were able to invest new solutions and build an even stronger culture.”
