SALZBURG, Austria--()--Each day, they carry half a ton of food and drink for untold kilometres from point A to point B - on foot. They work when most people have off, especially at the weekend. They are always courteous, cheerful and entertaining. They are the restaurant service staff - without them, visits to restaurants, cafes, bars and nightclubs would be no fun.
“This degree of mental and physical exertion is rarely demanded of any other profession. This is reason enough for us to finally thank the service staff and put them on a pedestal!”
"This degree of mental and physical exertion is rarely demanded of any other profession. This is reason enough for us to finally thank the service staff and put them on a pedestal!", said Andreas Neuhofer, in announcing the new initiative by Orderman, the Salzburg-based provider of hospitality technology solutions.
Through November 11, hospitality service staff from all European countries are invited to nominate themselves to be chosen as one of the "Hospitality Heroes". Applicants can register at www.facebook.com/Orderman and then inform their friends, guests and friends about their participation so that they can receive votes. The eleven candidates with the most votes move on to the jury competition. After evaluation of the motivational statements from the applicants, a jury of experts will select the greatest hospitality heroes.
"We at Orderman know that each person on the service staff is a hero. To demonstrate that, we created our Facebook competition. The heroes in places two through eleven each receive €111.11.
