BOCA RATON, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Bluegreen Vacations Corporation, a leading vacation ownership company, has been named among the top 10 large workplaces in South Florida by the South Florida Sun Sentinel. With corporate headquarters in Boca Raton, FL; Orlando, FL; and Indianapolis, IN, Bluegreen’s more than 5,700 associates (554 are based in South Florida) present travelers with the opportunity to explore 69 resorts located across 40 destinations throughout the U.S. and Caribbean, spanning the best beaches, cities and cultural meccas, as well as the natural splendor of the great outdoors.
“This recognition is especially meaningful because it’s coming from our own associates’ feedback,” said Justin Taylor, Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer of Bluegreen Vacations. “Their commitment to excellence is what differentiates the Bluegreen experience for our owners and guests. Our associates are the key to our success, and we’re equally committed to delivering the best experience for them by fostering a positive culture of professional and personal growth and happiness.”

The employee engagement survey of 24 questions gathered responses regarding issues relating to workplace culture:
- Alignment — where the company is headed, its values and cooperation
- Connection — employees feel appreciated and their work is meaningful
- Effectiveness — doing things efficiently and well, sharing different viewpoints, and encouraging new ideas
- My Manager — cares about concerns and helps employees develop
- Engagement — motivation, retention and recruiting

- The Basics — pay, benefits, flexibility, training and expectations
In addition to competitive salaries, a comprehensive benefits package and professional development programs, Bluegreen Vacations celebrates its associates with discount programs that provide eligible employees with an opportunity to vacation at company resorts or other destinations through an exchange program. Outside the office and resort destinations, associates play a significant role in the company’s robust corporate social responsibility initiatives, including participating in 16 hours of paid volunteer time off (VTO) and giving back to select charities via company directed volunteer opportunities and payroll deductions.
