Hard Rock employees in over two states to obtain bonuses
In places like Macau, a lot of the time casino employees acquiring their annual bonuses is a normal event. Such bonuses show the company’s appreciation for their hard work. This, however, is not usually practiced in most other countries and states.
Hard Rock International (HRI) has announced that it will be handing out bonuses to some of its US employees. According to the company, these bonuses are meant to be a token of appreciation to thank the workers for helping in the provision of a safe and secure environment for the guests and employees alike during such a difficult year.
Hard Rock International is supposedly going to give more than $1 million worth of bonuses to its employees in New Jersey, where about 2,184 of them will be receiving some money. Employees who work by hour (a total of 1,822) will be given $250, supervisors and employees with a fix salary (a total of 197) will obtain $500 and all 165 managers will get $1,000.
Jim Allen, who is the current company’s chairman, says:
The dedication of our team members has been crucial to driving the success of our casino resorts, and we are proud that Hard Rock Atlantic City has been able to prevail during these challenging times. We are committed to the well-being of our valued team members.
Aside from the New Jersey employees, some in other locations are also set to obtain bonuses. Those in Florida are supposed to also get extra money, but Allen did not mention exactly which employees will be receiving the bonuses or how much. It is also unknown when these employees will receive the money.
This is not the first time that the company helps out its employees in such a way. Around this time last year, HRI handed out more or less $2 million to its New Jersey workers to celebrate their dedication to the company as it drew closer and closer to attaining its business goals. This was not too long before the company suffered great losses caused by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Joe Lupo, president of Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City, commented on the bonuses and said:
This is a very exciting time for our team members that was made possible by our incredibly generous owners, the Seminole Tribe of Florida, along with Chairman of Hard Rock International Jim Allen and Hard Rock Atlantic City partners Jack Morris, Joe and Michael Jingoli who have truly brought light and hope into the new year.
