Here’s a smart way for some of you business proprietors to increase awareness of your enterprise. Get your employees to tattoo the business logo somewhere on their body and in appreciation of their good deeds promise to raise their annual pay by up to 15%. Any takers? Well in one company 40 out of the pool out of 800 have already stepped up….
Of course what’s best about Rapid Realty‘s offer is that the tattoo can be any size and anywhere on your body, just as long it’s the company logo.
Tells one employee, Stephanie Barry who took the plunge:
“I was like, why am I throwing my money away when I could give myself from a $25,000 to $40,000 for the same amount of work?”
The idea to have employees tattoo themselves tells Rapid Realty’s owner Anthony Lolli came courtesy of an employee who one day came to work voluntarily sporting the company logo as a tattoo. That’s when he asked how he could repay the employee for the gesture and even go as far as now offer it to the entire staff. All 800 of them….
And then there were these comment on the web that caused me to wonder as well:
Now we know the price of the average American. Reminds me of the old joke about the young “lady” at a party, with the punchline, “We’ve already established what you are. Now we’re just debating the price.”
This has to be the tackiest, most revolting thing a company could ask a person to do. Why not just give the people an increase without them having to put such an ugly disgusting tat on their body. Shame on this company for asking such a thing for a few bucks.
