In Jadranka Hotels, one of the subsidiaries of the Jadranka Group, the number of employees has doubled in the past 10 years. The consequence of this is an increasing number of domestic and foreign tourists who come to Lošinj every year, as well as extra-hotel facilities that try to extend the tourist season on Lošinj to the whole year. It is interesting to note that both permanent and permanent seasonal employees received Christmas bonuses, and all others in proportion to the duration of their employment. In addition to Christmas, Jadranka is once again providing her employees with a gift for children up to 15 years of age worth 600 kuna. Jadranka Group, one of the largest tourist and trade companies in Croatia, this year again rewards the work and effort of its employees with a Christmas bonus in the amount of as much as 2.500 kuna. This salary supplement is the final confirmation of the quality work of all employees. Jadranka Group currently employs almost 800 permanent employees, and during the tourist season this number rises to about 1.700 employees, which makes them the largest employer on Lošinj and Cres. In addition to benefits such as salary supplements, the Jadranka Group takes care of the training and education of its employees, so it invests at all levels. multimillion amounts for their development. Opportunities for additional education are numerous – from in-house workshops and internal Gastro Academy to external training programs for specialized occupations, such as concierge, sommelier, bartender and butler.

We are extremely proud of our employees and the successes we have achieved together in the past year. We are guided by the idea that employee satisfaction is just as important as the satisfaction of our guests and customers.”, Said Sanjin Šolić, President of the Management Board of Jadranka Group. One of the most significant moves of this tourist and trade company from Lošinj is arranging a facility to accommodate seasonal employees. Investment in a facility for the accommodation of employees, which monitors the quality level of the 4 * hotel, is the first such investment on the island of Lošinj, and is extremely important for ensuring quality accommodation. The working conditions offered by Jadranka are an excellent incentive for all those interested in working in tourism – especially during the summer months.
Wales fought out what could be a valiant World Cup draw as they held Group D leaders Serbia 1-1 in Belgrade.Aaron Ramsey had given Wales a 35th-minute lead – his ‘Panenka’ penalty coming at the same stadium where Czechoslovakia’s Antonin Panenka had put his name in football folklore with a chipped spot-kick at the 1976 European Championship.But Aleksandar Mitrovic, just as he had in Cardiff, proved Serbia’s saviour with a 73rd minute equaliser as the teams drew for the second time in seven months.Wales started in positive fashion without their talisman Bale and skipper Ashley Williams almost connected with Joe Ledley’s third-minute corner.Edwards and Aaron Ramsey were being asked to support Vokes quickly, while Serbia were slow to get their playmaker, Southampton’s Dusan Tadic, on the ball.Wayne Hennessey had to race out of his penalty area to complete one clearance, but Wales were untroubled in the opening quarter as Serbia failed to give their large support any encouragement.Serbia’s lack of attacking fluency persuaded skipper Branislav Ivanovic to fire from long range, but Hennessey saw the shot sail over his crossbar.But the attempt seemed to stir Serbia from their lethargy and Wales were grateful to clear Antonio Rukavina’s cross as the decibel levels were turned up.There was further concern in the Wales defence following some pinball in the visitors’ box and Aleksandar Mitrovic, scorer of Serbia’s late equaliser at Cardiff in November, sounded further warning of his aerial ability when he headed just wide.But Wales took a 35th-minute lead after Serbia goalkeeper Vladimir Stojkovic had inexplicably allowed the ball to run across his body and brought down Ramsey on the edge of his box in a wide position.Ramsey’s free-kick was heading towards Vokes when Portuguese referee Manuel De Sousa spotted a push on the big Burnley striker and pointed to the penalty spot.The stadium held its breath, but Ramsey was the coolest man in the ground as he chipped his penalty past Stojkovic, who had dived into the opposite corner.Wales survived a huge handball appeal at the start of the second half when Chris Gunter got in the way of a Serbian cross.But referee De Sousa was unimpressed and he was similarly unmoved when Nemanja Matic fell in the penalty box after a meandering run.Serbia were really ramping up the pressure and Joe Allen was forced into a challenge on Filip Kostic which brought the first yellow card, ruling the Stoke midfielder out of the next game with Austria in September.Aleksandar Kolarov almost provided further punishment but his 30-yard free-kick just dipped too late to trouble Hennessey.There was little respite for Wales, but they did momentarily release the siege to win a corner which Vokes headed over under pressure.Ramsey then broke clear again as Serbia started to push bodies forward, but he was just snuffed out in time. 1 The draw leaves Chris Coleman’s side four points adrift of the Group D leaders
