Our employees are critical to our success. They directly interact with our guests and make sure they enjoy their stay with us, and come back again. We employ over 6000 individuals and naturally understand the importance of delivering initiatives that support, develop and reward all our employees, whatever their position in the company.
Center Parcs is recognised by Investors in People, and we encourage our employees to develop their skills and we reward them when they are successful. We recently launched our NVQ academy and over 150 employees are currently working towards the qualification. We also offer a ‘Manager In Training’ programme to encourage individuals to progress within the business – this has resulted in numerous success stories.
We are proud of our employees and each year our Star Performers programme rewards the top contributors to the business from each village and from Head Office.
We believe that all employees should be treated equally and offer the same benefits to all – including a profit sharing scheme, a pension into which we contribute up to 9%, discounted holidays, use of our facilities and a Christmas hamper.
Our dedication to our people has resulted in a committed workforce. Our annual employee turnover is below the leisure industry average, 30% of our employees have been with us for three years or more and our diversity levels reflect the local population. We reward employees for their commitment and loyalty with enhanced benefits packages after 2, 5 and 10 years service.
