Byway has been selected for the Impact Fifty Award
Byway has been recognised as one of the most impactful companies to work for and awarded the Impact Fifty Award 2023. Impact Fifty recognises only 50 companies for their commitment to creating a workplace environment where all employees feel they are making a genuine impact on an important cause.
Impact Fifty is the latest series by Hyer, deep diving into the world of impact and beyond. Exploring the most meaningful places to work and going behind the scenes to meet the most defining companies.
Byway is the first of its kind flight-free travel planning and booking technology. The carbon impact of rail travel is 14g of CO2 per passenger mile, compared to 285g for air, meaning you could get the train from London to Edinburgh and back five times and your carbon footprint would still be lower than if you flew there. Byway's travel planning technology makes multi-stop flight-free travel easier and more enjoyable, whilst tackling the environmental and social impact of travel. Now a certified B-Corp, Byway makes alternatives to air more lovable, consistently receiving 99% five star user reviews.

The culture behind Byway
"The culture we're building is best reflected by our company values:
Love the journey - Making slow travel mainstream is a journey we approach with the optimism and openness needed to learn and grow.
Trust & be trusted - Trust in each other is the foundation of our team. We share insights widely and are grounded in openness.
Mainstream means everyone - We listen to, respect, amplify and support all people our product touches.
Everyone at Byway joined our team to work to make a difference in tackling climate change, so we know our growth and the adoption of sustainable travel is incredibly important to them. This is why we make an effort to ensure everyone at Byway is able to see their impact on the business, e.g. through sharing our financial plans and P&L in our monthly Shareholder Meetings.
We let people work when they want and decide things for themselves because ownership over our time and our work help us to feel proud of our impact. We all geek out with slack emojis over every new customer booking and five-star review, because each shows our growing impact right now in the day-to-day and is another step on the journey to making slow travel mainstream.
Impact Fifty is a movement that selects only the highest standard careers and companies that genuinely make an impact on important causes.
As a result of being selected into Impact Fifty, Byway has proved and continues to commit to creating a workplace environment where all employees feel that they are making a genuine impact on an important cause.
