Some 200 employees at Scotland’s Crerar Hotels are set to share in the group’s new Fair Fund scheme this month on top of their wages. Crerar, which operates seven, four-star and five-star hotels, launched the scheme in June.
Guests enjoying meals or spa treatments can opt in to have a 10 per cent charge added to their bill if they’ve received outstanding service. Now the first quarterly share out is due with £150,000 in the Fair Fund.
Chris Wayne-Wills, chief executive, said: “The Fair Fund ensures staff receive a pay-out proportionate to the hours they work and means that those working behind the scenes are also rewarded.”
The new scheme is part of a range of employee benefits launched by Crerar Hotel in recent months. They’ve committed £1 million to attract and retain talent, developing skills though a Crerar Academy.
