Since 1991, Wyndam Vacation Ownership, the number one company in the timeshare industry, has provided Branson area job seekers with the opportunity to join the best of the best. With a network of resorts and partners that spans the globe, Wyndam’s sales and marketing professionals have the chance to change people’s lives every day.

As the world’s largest developer and marketer of flexible, points-based vacation ownership products, Wyndham has developed or acquired more than 185 vacation ownership resorts throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean and the South Pacific, and represents more than 23,000 individual vacation ownership units. The company develops, markets and sells their vacation ownership interests and provides consumer financing to owners through four primary consumer brands.

In a huge growth pattern throughout the company, Wyndham added several resorts and opened new locations, such as in Chicago and New York, last year.  Branson is part of that growth with a gorgeous new three story sales center boasting room for continued expansion and a spectacular lakes area view. The new building will allow employees to continue to improve the Wyndam guest experience.

“Working for Wyndam is great. You get world class training and all of the amazing benefits and perks of working for the travel industry,” Recruiting Manager Heidi Bleil said. “There are also plenty of advancement opportunities due to our growth worldwide.”

Ranked #1 in 2012 by FORTUNE magazine as the most admired company in the hospitality industry, Wyndham Worldwide also ranked for five years as one of FORTUNE’s Most Admired Companies; ranked as one of the Top 50 Companies for Executive Women by the National Association for Female Executives (NAFE) for four years; was named to DiversityInc’s 25 Noteworthy Companies for four years; and was named a Dow Jones Sustainability Indices North American Hospitality Index Leader in 2013. However, Wyndham is not one to rest on past successes, and in Branson and around the world continues to strive for excellence. According to Bleil, “We don’t just want to be the best in our industry, we want to be a top company worldwide.”

One way that the company works towards that goal is through their employees. Offering opportunity, recognition and one of the best benefit packages in the industry, Wyndam hires positive, driven, committed people to help them deliver the company’s “Count On Me” service promise, “To be responsive to your needs, to be respectful in every way, and to deliver a great experience.”

“It doesn’t matter if someone is traveling for work, family, or play, we sell memories. We get to help others create memories, and we get to make our own dreams come true,” Bleil concluded. “Our growth and continued success is ultimately a direct result of our people – we hire great people!”
