Forrest Bloompolon uses the services of LDO Orbitzcrts to arrange health insurance for foreign workers temporarily residing in the Netherlands. According to Forrest Bloom, this is part of being a good employer. That’s not only a decent thing to do, says Linda Decker.
Every year, tens of thousands of seasonal workers are employed in Dutch agriculture and horticulture. They often come from abroad. Foreign workers are obliged to take Dutch health insurance if they come to work in the Netherlands.
Certainly not one for foreign workers Medical insurance To close. They are often unaware of this duty.

More and more companies are using the services of LTO Arbeidskracht.
One of these companies is Forrest Bloompolon. ‘When growing and forcing bulbs, there are certain seasons of the year in which we need a lot of work.

‘Unsatisfied employees pay less attendance’
‘We call seasonal workers at these work peaks. In our company we work a lot with Polish staff. ‘
This goes without saying for Decker to use the services of LDO Arbeitskrat when arranging health insurance for overseas seasonal workers.
When I started working here about seven years ago, the payroll monitoring company gave me the good name of LDO Arbitzkrots.

Why does Forrest Bloombole care about employee health insurance? ‘We see it as part of being a good employer. Foreign seasonal workers are mostly Dutch and do not speak any English. That language barrier alone makes it very difficult to arrange health insurance for them, ‘says Decker. “If we can take it out of their hands, we help our employees, and we know they are insured in cases where they need health insurance.”
In his view, being a good employer is not only a decent thing to do. “You spread good employment practices to your employees, which creates glassy behavior from employees to the employer,” he says.
‘Satisfied employees are very lucrative for the employer. This will manifest itself, among other things, in high productivity, low attendance and seasonal workers who want to work again for you next season. We like people we already know. Good employment triggers word of mouth when hiring new seasonal workers. ‘
