The shortage of workforce in Ibiza encourages inventiveness. Thus the Hard Rock hotel, which is part of the Palladium Group, promises its employees 200 euros as a bonus for each new employee recruited, perhaps among friends and family. The news was reported by the Spanish newspaper El País, which refers to an advertisement posted on the notice board of the hotel, which invites them to recruit “a friend for the band”. In fact, the hotel is themed rock and “band” is a colloquial way in which the management of the hotel refers to its staff.
The tourism sector of the Balearics, this season, is in a strong personnel crisis and this announcement is further proof of this. El País recalls that in Ibiza the problem of the lack of workforce is such that the Spanish Confederation of hotels and tourist accommodation has opened the return to the sixth working day, a measure that is not currently foreseen by the collective agreement of the Balearic hotel workers , made up of 40 hours of work for five days of work and two days of rest.
