Up to 1500 Restel extra employees to move to Barona
Around 1500 part-time restaurant employees who can be called in to work as required are to move from Restel to Opteam, part of the Barona Group. The business is being transferred, so they will move as existing employees.
Restel and Barona have reached an agreement under which up to 1500 restaurant employees who can be called in to work as required and two clerical employees will move from Restel to Opteam, part of the Barona Group, as existing employees. It was also agreed that Restel will use Opteam’s services for extra labour requirements.
“We were looking for the best-placed strategic partner from our employees’ point of view to employ them in our operating locations and to invest in their training and development”, commented Restel’s HR Director Merja Rissanen in a press release.
“With Opteam, new employment opportunities open up for employees in other clients’ businesses too”, adds Opteam’s Business Sector Director HoReCa, Mikael Nuotio.
Restel’s shop stewards only got to know about the agreement on Tuesday, but according to PAM’s information Barona is scheduled to meet them later and discuss the changes.
In total Restel has around 170 restaurants in various chains. Barona is the largest employment agency in Finland.
