KUDOS gives best employees a lie-in!
Contract and events caterer, KUDOS, has launched an initiative that provides a greater work-life balance for all of its employees by letting them stay at home!
The new initiative aims to give staff working for the award winning caterer a more balanced social life by providing winners of “employee of the month” two days extra holiday alongside a £50.00 gift voucher, while “employee of the year” earns themselves an extra five days holiday.
KUDOS, who currently hire over 400 staff throughout their venues, cafes and delivered-in catering service, Kudos Delivered, has taken this step as part of their commitment to support a healthy work-life balance for their employees who, due to the nature of the industry, often work unsociable hours and have to sacrifice time spent with family and friends.
The first employee to receive this reward is Andy Wood, Head Chef at the award winning Penshurst Place and Gardens in Kent. Commenting on the achievements of his colleague, Peter Bruun, Senior Partner of KUDOS said: “Andy is the type of person that makes KUDOS more than just a workplace. His hard work, determination and commitment to ensuring not only a smooth transition of this newly won contract, but also the ongoing development, have been exemplary and he is very deserving of a well-earned break!
Bruun continued: “The decision to change our reward system was made following our ongoing conversations and consultations with our colleagues in venues across the country, which made it very clear that this would be an ideal way in which we could make a positive difference to their work-life balance.”
