Benefits for employees

Apart from the fact that you will have the most attractive workplace in Bern, we also offer good career prospects. Our staff enjoy a wide range of benefits. Here's a selection of the offers available to employees:

Our job vacancies

Work in the gastronomy industry is tough. That's why you deserve extra rest: Gurten offers its employees 7 weeks of paid vacation*. In addition, you can buy up to 10 days of additional vacation and take an unpaid vacation of 3 months every 5 years. We also offer you discounts in Migros leisure facilities, for Interhome vacation homes and when booking Migros vacations!

*At Gurten, employees on monthly pay can take 7 weeks of vacation. This is a pilot, implemented in 2023. Here, employees can voluntarily work 43h / week instead of 41h / week and collect the 2 hours of additional working time per week. These can then be used in one piece as additional vacation weeks. Thus, 7 instead of 5 weeks of vacation can be taken annually.

Long-term employees are rewarded: starting from 5 years at Gurten and every 5 years thereafter, you can choose between a monetary amount, paid vacation or a mixture of both. 

As an employee of Gurten - Park im Grünen, you don't have to choose between family and career: We support employees with children by covering up to 50% of the costs for external childcare. We also support parents-to-be with 4 weeks paternity leave or 18 weeks maternity leave, whereby 3 weeks of maternity leave may also be transferred to the father.
Of course, we also support adoptions with 4 weeks of parental leave.

As an employee of the Gurten - Park im Grünen you benefit from a variety of discounts and monetary benefits: Your shopping at Migros is rewarded with triple Cumulus points, a cell phone subscription at unbeatable prices, banking conditions that no house bank offers today, a contribution to the use of public transport and much more. 

It's important to us that you stay healthy. That's why we cover 50% of the cost of your Migros fitness subscription, pay for 75% of your spinning class at the Klubschule, and offer you discounts on health insurance, massages, check-ups, and on the product range of an optical and acoustics store.
