Hotel offers new staff bizarre perk if they pass six months probation – and people think it’s a brilliant idea | The Sun

A HOTEL chain offering a bizarre incentive to new staff so they stick around longer than six months.

German-based Ruby Hotels is being praised for their ingenuity over giving new employees the chance to spend up to £421 on a new tattoo, piercing or haircut if they pass their probationary period.



Across the brand's 16 hotels around Europe, already there's been an increase of applications by 25 percent.

Uta Scheurer, Ruby's vice president of human resources, said its been a "satisfactory result", given the shortage of staff across the hotel industry in Europe.

She told CNN: "Ruby wants to encourage its employees to create their individual success story, to show their own personality and also showcase it at work.

"We love people with personality and that's what we want to communicate."

Ms Scheurer says each character of the invidual employee is what makes Ruby successful.

She has tattoos herself, and explains how often permanent inking, piercings and tattoos are used by people to express themselves.

The hotel spokeswoman said: "They're different for everyone, emotional for everyone, with a meaning.

At Ruby, she says they encourage everyone to be themselves.

She said: "Many companies claim that; We prove it with this campaign."

For the current workers who may feel as though they missed out, they've been offered their own deal.

If an existing employee recruits a new one, they both get a tattoo.

The enticing offer comes after the UK'S best boss ever surprised his entire team with a £7,000 trip to Ibiza, covering all costs and even throwing in Calvin Harris tickets.
