UK Company To Take Employees On All-Inclusive Holiday As Thanks For Working Pandemic

A company is taking its workforce on holiday as a thank you for their hard work during the pandemic.

Over 50 members of staff at Yolk Recruitment in Cardiff, Wales, are set to jet off to Spain for an all-inclusive stay in Tenerife in April.

According to reports, the lavish four-day trip is going to set the firm back a colossal £100,000.

However, bosses says it's just reward for its employees who have helped the company through one of its most difficult but also most profitable periods.

The company announced the trip in a post to LinkedIn.

It read: "Yolk Folk are off to Tenerife. That's everyone. Not just the top billers or those that played a part in our historic 2021 results, but EVERYONE.

"Our purpose is building a culture where everyone wins! Which means no one can be left behind on this all-inclusive company holiday.

"We might be one of the first Cardiff-based companies for such a company-wide (not just target hitters), all expenses paid employee holiday and that's only possible because we strive to be #Bright #Bold #Better in everything we do, internally and externally."

Speaking about the holiday, chief commercial officer Pavan Arora thanked staff for their hard work.

He said: "2020 was a really tough time on our whole industry - we went from the jobs market being put on hold to going into overdrive. 

"Our staff have been on a journey, from going to remote working to hybrid back to remote... so we just wanted to put our arms around everyone and say thank you for the last two years."

Adding: "It's employee care and we want to make sure everyone feels appreciated for the hard work they've done over the past two years."

The group will be heading out on 1 April and will be staying in Costa Adeje during their stay.

Matthew Morgan joined Yolk at the start of this year and the 28-year-old said to the BBC: "I must admit I was a little surprised at first, thinking someone was pulling my leg having only been there a week - picking on the newbie."

Rebecca Bond has been with the firm for four years and said she was over the moon with the news.

The 26-year-old said that she was happy for the break "after what can only be described as an eventful year".
