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.
Vice President Joseph Boakai has urged the graduating class of Nimba County Community College (NCCC) to devote their acquired education to community service as they walked out of the walls of the institution. VP Boakai’s admonition was contained in his commencement keynote address delivered at NCCC’s first convocation in Sanniqullie, Nimba County.Speaking on the topic “Devoting your Education to Community Service,” he called on the graduates to not treat his message as simple, trite or even mundane, but to accept it owing to the often mischaracterized weight assigned to virtues that undergird genuine service to community.“This is so because we have to realize the importance of commitment, diligence and patriotism as the ingredients needed for any society to develop and make progress,” he said.“You hold in your frame and fabric the capacity to make a difference in the mix of the turbulence that currently engulfs our political-economic landscape.”The VP reminded the graduates that their engagements only need to embody commitment, diligence and love for their country.“Our society is plagued by a long list of vices including greed, apathy, envy, theft, cheating, impatience, cynicism, ingratitude and worse, the resort to mob justice,” he said.In regards to these vices, Mr. Boakai cautioned the graduates to observe their roles as individuals belonging to a class, and be prepared to step forth and combat the contagious enticements of the aforementioned vices.“You stand today at a junction, projecting before you two paths from the forks of the road in your journey. The path you embark upon will be as critical to your very existence as it will be to the community in which you live and interact with your fellowmen.“Much like I have warned other peers of yours as they trooped out of the corridors of universities, let me similarly admonish you to not sit on your laurels, dose off in complacency or expect that now that you have earned a university degree, all things will come falling your way,” he told the graduates. He called on them to go forth with the right mental attitude, remaining true to the fine molding they have undergone in the classrooms and set fine examples as people who have acquired what was required of them.But should they do the contrary, Boakai warned: “Throughout all the years, all you have nursed is an aptitude for following the crowd and stooping for shortcuts and bypasses, settling for the ordinary; then of course your celebration amounts to naught, as far as the collective interest of society is concerned.” The NCCC’s first Commencement Convocation exercise, which started on December 8, was characterized by many activities beginning with the Faculty and Staff Night, the Students Class Night, the College President Tea Party and the Baccalaureate Service.The NCCC graduated 167 students who studied 14 disciplines including General Agriculture, Forestry, Natural Resource Management, Geology, Laboratory Technology, Nursing, Information Technology, Public Administration, Management, Accounting, Economic, Criminal Justice, Primary and Secondary Education as well as Gender Development Studies. 72 of the graduates come from the department of Science and Agriculture.The NCCC was established in 2010, but started full academic activities in 2011. It is run by the school’s president, Dr. Yar Gonway Donlah Gono.Dr. Gono said the school grew from 438 students to 1, 388, confirming the strong desire young Liberians have for education.The occasion was attended by high profile government officials and representatives from other colleges and universities around the country, including: Associate Justice Kabineh Ja’neh; Minister of National Defense, Brownie J. Samukai Jr.; the Director General of the National Commission on Higher Education, Dr. Michael Slawon; and the Minister of Post and Telecommunication, Dr. Federick Norkeh.
