A campaign has been launched asking customers to 'be nice' to staff in hospitality as they go back to work. 

This initiative was created by Radisson RED and friends (including Kained Holdings, Chaophraya, and House for an Art Lover) in Glasgow urging customers to understand the challenges facing staff as hospitality reopens.

The organisers ask that customers do not take to social media if they are unhappy with any part of the service they received. 

Instead, they ask that they message them first and give them the chance to fix things.

Graham Chalmers, Curator, Radisson RED Glasgow, said: “We are so excited to welcome back our Radisson RED family and we want everyone to have fun safely.

“It’s important to remember our staff are suffering the same anxieties many others are about being out in public again after so long on lockdown – so whether you’re at Radisson RED or in another hospitality outlet, please be considerate of the staff and their feelings.

“If you can’t get the table you want when you want, or your order takes longer than usual, or you’re not sitting with your friends, we will try to help where we can but sadly some things are just not in our control right now.

“We are back though – and we can’t wait to show you how much we have missed you.

“Come join us – we’re here to make you smile. Please Be Kind wherever you go when hospitality finally reopens today !”
