Does this job have the best perk in the land?

The Oban Times - - News -

PEO­PLE of­ten think of bar jobs as at the bot­tom of the pile when it comes to forg­ing a ca­reer, but a busi­ness­man who runs two multi-award-win­ning is­land pubs has put an end to that by of­fer­ing an in­cred­i­ble staff bonus.

Neil Mor­ri­son, 39, who runs ‘Scot­land’s Friendli­est Bar’, MacGochans in Tober­mory, and the Isle of Is­lay’s Lochside Ho­tel in Bow­more, of­fered two lucky staff mem­bers trips of a life­time as a bonus.

The in­cen­tive scheme is un­der the guise of im­prov­ing cus­tomer ser­vice in his ho­tels by al­low­ing staff mem­bers the chance to see how the hos­pi­tal­ity in­dus­try works in other ar­eas of the world.

Mr Mor­ri­son said: ‘Eilidh Daroch from the Lochside Ho­tel and Re­becca Arm­strong from MacGochans were cho­sen by their work col­leagues as the most de­serv­ing em­ploy­ees of 2016 to win the trip of a life­time.

‘I trav­elled out with the pair and we were stay­ing in a condo above the Hil­ton in down­town Mi­ami.

‘ We had a friend pick us up at the air­port and give us the full city tour be­fore hit­ting the hotspots along Mi­ami Beach.’

He con­tin­ued: ‘ This sort of in­cen­tive works great to mo­ti­vate the staff through­out the year, and gives them a taste of Amer­i­can ser­vice stan­dards and cus­tomer friend­li­ness, which are first class. We had a fab­u­lous time.’

Neil Mor­ri­son is of­fer­ing two mem­bers of staff the hol­i­day of a life­time is they win the sup­port of their col­leagues.
