S-Trip! (Handa Travel Student Trip Ltd.)
This youth travel agency organizes experience-oriented tours for young adults between the ages of 16 and 26. The trips can be as short as two days or as long as two months, with groups ranging from a few friends to 500 students on a spring-break vacation. HR tip: turnover can be huge in this youth-oriented sector, even for those higher in the org chart. To keep key decision-makers engaged, S-Trip recently decided to open up its annual planning retreat—typically, an owners-only affair—to every manager on its payroll.
