Berjaya Beau Vallon has been in existence since 1994, one of the oldest hotel in the country. It employs 201 workers, half of which are non-Seychellois with a good number of Seychellois workers with long years of service. The Minister commended them on their long service record, but encouraged for more to be done to improve on retention of new recruits to be able to reduce their component of non-Seychellois workers.

Despite that many of the line staff are new, but expressed that they are happy to work for the organization. They raised few challenges such as lack of communication, health and safety concerns that if it could be addressed will make their experience and contribution even better.
