Valamar Already Seeking Employees for 2022 Croatian Tourist Season

The global coronavirus pandemic made most people worry that we’d see a repeat of the dire summer of 2020 once again this season, especially as the beginning of the year started out so badly, with lockdowns across Europe, high infection rates, travel bans and a poor initial vaccine rollout. We were very pleasantly surprised by what ended up transpiring, with the record, pre-pandemic year of 2019’s numbers even being surpassed in several segments. Could Valamar’s early search for next year’s workers be a sign that 2022 will be the year of total recovery? Maybe. There’s a lure for would-be 2022 Croatian tourist season workers from Valamar, too.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, the very well known Croatian company Valamar has reported that it will reward all its employees for an extremely demanding season with incentives in the amount of up to 1,600. kuna As such, through special reward programmes for the 2021 tourist season, Valamar paid a total of around 24 million kuna out to its employees, which amounts to 4,100 kuna per employee, according to the company, which has already started recruiting workers for next year.

“In order to keep hold of employees in tourism, the social partners and Valamar have launched a programme for year-round employment until the 2022 Croatian tourist season. In agreement with the unions, an employment programme was launched which would make the 400 most loyal seasonal workers permanent workers for an indefinite period of time during the autumn and ensure a year-round job in tourism,” they explained from the popular company.

In the coming period, in order to develop high quality tourism, it will be necessary to increase and ensure the year-round income of employees and improve their overall working conditions. Thus, after the official end of this tourist season, Valamar is set to re-launch a series of initiatives from the “Good Job at Valamar/Dobar posao u Valamaru” programme.
