One of the most common problems for organizations is the sourcing of employees, headhunters might be aplenty but if you can't convince anyone to work for you, you'd really need to come up with a great strategy. Most companies would offer incentives such as stocks, health plans, gym memberships, car plans and even lodging just to entice applicants to apply for a job, but what if the nature of your business couldn't provide those perks, what would you do? Would you be able to offer something irresistible that you'd be the one turning people away because suddenly everyone wants to work for you? Let's see how a small private clinic in Prague did just that...
AN understaffed Prague clinic has signed up nurses by offering boob jobs, liposuction and tummy tucks as a bonus.
Nurses, doctors and secretaries who sign up with the small private clinic for three years can choose their free plastic surgery.
"It has been a success," Jiri Schweitzer, a manager at the Iscare clinic, said, adding the establishment was now fully staffed and had to reject dozens of beauty-hunting job applicants.
Petra Kalivodova, a 31-year-old nurse who has been working at the clinic for four years, has had a breast implants - the most popular choice among nurses - so she underwent liposuction for her signing on perk.
"I have mentioned this to colleagues and friends, and the interest in working here is huge," she said.
The clinic charges up to 75,000 koruna ($5060) for a breast implant, almost three times the average nurse's monthly wage, and up to €1880 ($3380) for liposuction.
Many Czech nurses have been tempted out of the country by higher wages offered in western European nations and the Czech health system now needs about 6000 nurses in addition to the 90,000 it already employs, according to official data.

I wonder what would happen if a similar thing happened in our country, let's say we ran out of nurses too because everyone left the country to seek greener pastures abroad, would hospitals adopt a similar business practice? Because for sure, there are lot of Filipina nurses who are insecure of their bodies too, especially from watching too many Koreanovelas wherein their idols are also products of the latest in plastic surgery. Aside from retaining nurses, Hospitals would also benefit by attracting Pinoy male patients who would look forward to being confined in a hospital full of busty nurses, this blogger excluded because he likes his nurse DFC.
