Apparently, it is not okay, at a big German insurance company, to reward your best sales agents with a sex party at a famous bathhouse in Budapest, Hungary. Though the 2007 event was “killer fun,” according to the company magazine of Hamburg Mannheimer International (HMI), the ownership of HMI is now indicating that what took place was a “grave violation of company rules.”
The story of the party was reported originally by the German business daily Handelsblatt and followed up on by Spiegel Online International. A description of the event starts with “twenty prostitutes and canopy beds in an open-air bordello …” and we trust Sex Feed readers to use their imaginations to fill in the rest.
Our first reaction is that apparently there were no female top sales agents at HMI in 2007, and that bothers us perhaps more than a brothel party for insurance dudes. Prostitution is legal in Hungary, so no laws were broken. The “grave violation of company rules,” we suspect, comes down to—Do not do anything that will make the company look like it is run by sexist jerks who spend profits on prostitutes. Which is probably a good rule, for an insurance company.
We hope the company is recruiting women, compensating them properly and letting top sales agents make their own decisions on whether or not to spend money on sex.
