That is why Valamar Riviera is recognized as the best employer in tourism and in 2019 it took a high 7th place on the list of the most desirable employers in Croatia according to an independent survey by the Moj Posao portal. At the beginning of December, Valamar paid its employees a gift in kind in the amount of HRK 600 net, and to all employees with children under the age of 15 a gift for a child in the amount of HRK 600 net per child. As a reminder, the workers were paid a reward for a successful season in August in the amount of HRK 500 net, and in addition to the above, Valamar is the first company in tourism that guarantees all its employees a minimum of HRK 5.000 net income for full monthly hours. All of the above confirms that Valamar is systematically working to increase the material rights of employees. However, in addition to material rights, systematic work is also being done to increase the non-material rights of employees. Thus, employees who come to work in Valamar’s 8 destinations, 36 hotels and resorts and 15 camping resorts from other parts of Croatia are provided with quality accommodation and hot meals. In addition, Valamar provides education and training to all employees, regardless of their position. Out of the total number of employees, 412 will receive a Christmas bonus that satisfies the minimum duration of employment, while all 432 Aminess employees will be paid a gift in kind in the amount of HRK 600,00. Also, gifts will be given to 161 children of employees up to 15 years of age in such a way that each employee will receive 600 kuna per child. “Caring for employees and developing a stimulating corporate culture where employees and guests come first is one of the company’s strategic initiatives. We are the first tourist company in Croatia to introduce the 13th salary, and with investments in the development of human resources, Valamar, as a leading company in tourism, wants to be an example of good practice for other employers as well. “, said Ines Damjanić Šturman, Director of the Human Resources Department at Valamar Riviera. Aminess from Novigrad will pay its employees a Christmas bonus in the maximum amount of HRK 2.500,00 as a reward for successful business results in the past year and in accordance with the expressed effort and in proportion to the duration of employment. Payment of the Christmas bonus in full non-taxable amount expects permanent employees, permanent seasonal workers and employees employed for at least ten months. One of the most important factors in the quality of the tourist offer is certainly the quality of service, because a dissatisfied guest is a lost guest. Tourism workers can be a key factor in surviving a market where guests are increasingly demanding and competition is fiercer. In order for guests to be satisfied, employees should also be satisfied, and Valamar and Aminess, among others, are aware of this. That’s right Valamar Riviera paid the 13th salary in the amount of HRK 5.000 net to all employees with a permanent contract at the time of payment and all employees with a fixed-term contract who worked in 2019 for at least 10 months, or at least 1741 hours. This year, Valamar also paid a Christmas bonus in the amount of HRK 2.000 net to all employees in employment for an indefinite period of time at the time of payment, while all temporary workers who worked the entire season were paid a bonus for seasonal work in the amount of HRK 700 to 1.500 net , depending on the number of hours worked in 2019. Valamar is the first employer in tourism that, in accordance with the agreement with the Trade Union of Tourism and Services of Croatia and the Trade Union of Istria, Kvarner and Dalmatia reached in February this year, pays the mentioned awards to its employees. “Employee satisfaction is our main motivation, because their professionalism, dedication and creativity allow us to respond strongly to the increasingly demanding tourism market, so we decided to offer them benefits with which the upcoming holidays will be filled with happiness,” said Sanja Žužić, Human Resources Manager Aminess hotels and camps. The company has one of the highest bases for calculating salaries in tourism, and with incentive incomes that increase from year to year, it continuously invests in improving the conditions of all its employees and offers numerous opportunities for career advancement. In addition, in order to provide even better quality accommodation to employees coming from other parts of Croatia and the region, Aminess has started the construction of the first hotel for employees in Novigrad, which will cover 2.500 square meters and be ready for the 2020 season. Regardless of the employment status, all employees are provided with a wide range of training and development programs such as communication and team management skills, foreign languages and presentation and information skills. The high level of quality of working conditions in Aminess is also evidenced by the fact that the vast majority of seasonal employees return to the company from year to year, as well as the Employer Partner certificate.

The last time the Grande Prairie Athletics were in Fort St. John they dominated the Senior Flyers 8-3 in large part because of defensive miscues that resulted in odd man rushes. This time around the Flyers played on their best defensive games of the season and it paid off in a 5-0 win.The game saw long time Flyers goaltender Troy Hunt return to the crease for the first time this season. He’s been limited on the ice all season but him and Flyers head coach Gerard Dicaire talked before the game and Hunt deemed himself ready to go.“We buried our chances and Huntsy came in and kept us in the game. He made some key saves. It was a good 60 minutes of hockey I thought,” Dicaire explained. “He’s only skated a handful of times so I talked to him and asked him if he wanted to back up or start and he said ‘I’ve been there before’ so we threw him in and he played well.”- Advertisement -One of the reasons the Flyers were so sharp defensively had to do with a focus in practice of playing in their own end, and it showed throughout the game.“Wednesday’s practice was a tough one,” Dicaire admitted. “We did a lot of d-zone stuff and three on three down low. We only had 15 guys but most of the guys that played tonight were there. It’s starting to come around with accountability and playing in our own end. Guys are talking more.”Scoring in order for the Flyers were Robbie Sidhu, Adam Horst, Cole Calliou (2), and Robbie Sidhu.Advertisement Hunt made 32 saves for the shutout.The Flyers will next be in action at home at 8:30 against the Manning Comets tonight.
