Temporary employment agency Tempo Team (previously Vedior) has launched a benefits loyalty card for its temporary employees. The so-called Team Card entitles temporary employees to discounts in a number of restaurant chains, cinemas, amusement centres, clothing and other shops. It also provides the temporary employee and his or her family with discount on health insurance.
â€œTempo Team is the first top ten Belgium temporary employment agency, which offers such a scheme. All benefits continue even when temporary employees stop working for us for a short period of time. Only those who work for us for less than 65 annualised days will lose the benefits. On the other hand, people who work for us for more than 130 days get an additional discountâ€? says Tempo Team Commercial Director Marc de Braekeleer.
â€œThis new loyalty card makes complete commercial sense because we can keep good temporary employees on board that way even when we donâ€™t have work for them. That costs money but if we let everyone run away during bad times we will have to invest more in recruitment when the market picks up.â€?
â€œAlthough the demand for temporary workers in Belgium is 20% lower than last year, we will need highly qualified temporary staff when the market starts picking up again. We will have good new entrants and we will keep our experienced temporary workers.â€?
