The Blue Lagoon visited the Employment Bureaus throughout Croatia in search of employees

first_imgThe Blue Lagoon team visited the Employment Bureaus throughout Croatia in search of new seasonal workers.Given that the Blue Lagoon has been recognized for years as one of the most desirable employers in tourism, and recently material rights of all Blue Lagoon workers for the next tourist season increased by another 7% on average, interest in seasonal work exceeded all expectations. Thus, several hundred interested people in Našice, Županja, Vinkovci, Vukovar and Osijek came to listen to the presentation of working conditions and employment opportunities in the Blue Lagoon.”The Blue Lagoon is continuously improving the rights of its workers, as well as the conditions of accommodation and stay of workers in our destinations. We will continue to increase the quality of conditions, as well as accommodation, because we are aware that development is based on satisfied workers. “, they say from the Blue Lagoon. By the way, Plava laguna employs about 2 seasonal workers in the destinations of Poreč, Umag and Rijeka, and the tendency is to reduce seasonal workers and increase the number of workers indefinitely. Thus, in September this year, a contract on permanent cooperation was concluded with 240 current seasonal workers, ie for an indefinite period of time.The unions praised such a way of systematically addressing labor issues, given that a system is being created in which half of the workers are permanently employed and half are seasonal. “Blue Lagoon at the level of material rights exercised by workers is one of the most successful tourism companies in Croatia and we are pleased that the intention of the Employer in the future to maintain or increase the same level to achieve employee satisfaction with rewards and maintain competitiveness in the increasingly demanding labor market. The Blue Lagoon collective agreement is certainly one of the best, if not the best”, Say the Trade Unions of Istria, Kvarner and Dalmatia.Therefore, it is already possible to determine that in August 2018, 44% of workers will be employed in the Blue Lagoon for an indefinite period of time, 7% of workers will work under a fixed-term employment contract for a fixed period of three years, while 49% of workers be employed on a fixed-term contract.Related news:BLUE LAGOON INCREASES THE MATERIAL RIGHTS OF WORKERS WITH A NEW COLLECTIVE AGREEMENTAPPOINTMENT OF THE MANAGEMENT BOARD OF PLAVA LAGUNA DD POREČ<br />
