Markus Thesleff, founder of Los Mochis & Viajante87, offers BUPA medical insurance to all permanent employees.
Markus Thesleff and the team behind Los Mochis & Viajante87 announced the decision to offer medical insurance by BUPA to all employees at their current venues. The move will see the group as one of the first in the UK to offer full medical insurance to all staff.
This is a game changing move in hospitality and sets the gold standard in staff healthcare. Often an overlooked element, private healthcare provides such an essential peace of mind for everyone. Private healthcare is not just for older people but a valuable benefit for all staff and ultimately leads to a happier workplace with staff bringing their best self to work.
The change comes at a time where the hospitality industry is struggling to attract and retain staff. The BUPA medical insurance will apply to every level of employment, from Managers to Kitchen Porters, following their passing of probation. This is one of the new measures they have undertaken to ensure the group remains a leading hospitality employer.
The owners behind the expanding restaurant group are consistently looking at innovative ways to manage the current hospitality crisis and attract new staff. Whether this includes being creative with menu design and styles of service or adapting opening hours and staffing schedules to be as optimised as possible. The group is set to open Los Mochis City in Broadgate Circle on the rooftop of 100 Liverpool Street this year and also acquired the legendary Sale e Pepe restaurant in London’s Knightsbridge.
Markus Thesleff is an award-winning entrepreneur and a ball of electric energy with over two decades of continuous international success in hospitality as an owner, operator, advisor, and consultant. Markus gets hospitality. It is deep in his bones.
Founder Markus Thesleff says: ‘We are proud to be one of the first restaurant groups in the country to offer full medical insurance to our employees. We always try to create the best possible working environment to attract and retain our staff and believe that this is just one of the necessary advances in the hospitality industry and hope our fellow restaurant and hospitality industry leaders will follow suit. We believe it benefits employees massively knowing their health & welfare is taken care of while also helping to alleviate pressure on the NHS.”
