RedDoorz announced on September 13, 2019 a strategic partnership with Swedish microinsurance company BIMA. Through the partnership, the Southeast Asian hotel management and booking platform will provide all of its hotel partner staff with life and personal accident insurance.
The partnership was made official at a contract signing ceremony earlier this year in Makati City, Metro Manila, Philippines. The event was attended by guests from both companies including the RedDoorz Philippines country head Stefanie Irma and BIMA country manager Melvin Juruena.
“We are delighted to be able to offer improved benefits for our valued hotel partners and their employees in the Philippines,” Irma stated. “We pride ourselves on having exceptional relationships with our hotel partners and have been searching for an insurance partner that matches our core values. BIMA is the right insurance partner to offer our RedDoorz hotel partner employees coverage in the Philippines.”
Working with local insurance leader Pioneer Insurance, BIMA will cover RedDoorz partner staff’s burial assistance, accidental medical expense and daily accident hospital benefit for the beneficiaries. Through its partner engagement program, RedDoorz has taken a holistic approach to the wellness of over 1,500 indirect hotel staff in over 10 cities across the Philippines.
“We are very excited to be in this journey with RedDoorz,” Juruena said. “Our strategic partnership is a true testament to the strength of BIMA’s products and services – that we can innovate in terms of our product offerings that are relevant for the needs of companies as well as for individuals, bringing us ever closer to our goal of insuring every life and every family.”
In addition to offering life and personal accident insurance to all hotel partner staff, RedDoorz provides a variety of initiatives including hospitality, etiquette and communication training courses, health and fitness activities and free lunch gatherings. These programs have been designed from the ground up with the purpose of elevating workplace wellness improving career growth and prospects, as well as strengthening the relationship with partners.
Earlier this year, RedDoorz gathered more than 100 staff from across the Philippines to participate in its first ever Quality Training Workshop in the country. This was an opportunity for the company to impart key insights, learnings and best-in-class industry expertise in the hospitality industry among the participants.
RedDoorz front desk manager Andrea Nicole Alvarez praised the various training initiatives. For her, it is clear that RedDoorz cares for its employees in providing them with life and personal accident insurance.
“It’s also nice to see that considers proper training a key priority for its employees to ensure that all guests are welcomed and feel at ease when they stay at a RedDoorz hotel,” Alvarez commented. “I would like to thank and salute RedDoorz management in helping us grow and for providing these important benefits.”
RedDoorz now has over 200 hotels in over 20 different cities in the Philippines. The company prides itself in creating meaningful and long-lasting relationships with its strong network of partner properties.
