Oasis Marinas Honored with Great Place to Work Certification™

Annapolis, MD, May 16, 2023 — Oasis Marinas, the premiere marina management and hospitality company, is proud to announce its certification as a Great Place to Work®. This prestigious recognition is based on an anonymous survey of team members and an analysis of the company’s policies, procedures, and culture.

The certification process involved a thorough evaluation of Oasis Marinas’ workplace culture, including the level of trust, respect, and fairness that team members experience. This certification confirms that Oasis Marinas has created a workplace that fosters camaraderie, collaboration, and a sense of purpose. Oasis joins an elite group of other Great Place to Work® institutions, including esteemed brands such as Hilton, Wegmans, Salesforce, and Target, having met the highest standards regarding workplace experiences.

“Great Place to Work Certification is a highly coveted achievement that requires consistent and intentional dedication to the overall employee experience,” says Sarah Lewis-Kulin, the Vice President of Global Recognition at Great Place To Work. She emphasizes that Certification is the sole official recognition earned by the real-time feedback of employees regarding their company culture. “By successfully earning this recognition, it is evident that Oasis Marinas stands out as one of the top companies to work for, providing a great workplace environment for its employees.”

“As an organization committed to enhancing the lives of our guests and our teammates, we are thrilled to achieve the Great Place to Work® certification,” said Kenneth Svendsen, CEO of Oasis Marinas. “Our team member experience is a top priority, and we owe our continued success to our dedicated team at Oasis Marinas. We celebrate and thank them for all they do to help us earn this incredible recognition.”

After conducting significant quantitative and qualitative research within the organization in 2022, Oasis developed and implemented various initiatives to further enhance the workplace experience this year. These initiatives include benefits improvements, such as a robust 401(k) matching program and enhanced maternity leave policies. The organization also launched its first Wellness and Culture Committees, highly focused on the strategic development of programming, policy reformation, and teammate well-being. At the core of improvements is communication across all levels of the organization. From monthly company update events to consistent, cross-departmental collaboration and feedback aggregation, the commitment to clear, transparent, and engaging communication is at the core of ensuring everyone in the organization feels respected, informed, and an active part of the greater whole.
