By Angela Green, Content Executive, H&C News: Los Mochis & Viajante87 restaurants announce private health insurance for all team members.
Los Mochis & Viajante87 restaurants have announced they will provide private medical insurance from BUPA to all employees at their current venues. The move will see the group as one of the first in the UK to offer full medical insurance to all team members.
The change comes at a time where the hospitality industry is struggling to attract and retain people. The BUPA medical insurance will apply to every level of employment, including kitchen porters, waiters, waitresses, and managers, the whole team. This new measure is undertaken to ensure it remains a leading employer.
The owners behind the two restaurants are consistently looking at innovative ways to manage the current hospitality crisis and attract new people. Whether this includes being creative with menu design and styles of service or adapting opening hours and staffing schedules to be as optimised as possible.
Founder Markus Thesleff said: ‘We are proud to be one of the first restaurant groups in the country to offer full medical insurance to our employees.
“We always try to create the best possible working environment to attract and retain our staff and believe that this is just one of the necessary advances in the hospitality industry and hope our fellow restaurant and hospitality industry leaders will follow suit.
We believe it benefits employees massively knowing their health & welfare is taken care of while also helping to alleviate pressure on the NHS.”
