Salesman given orgy as bonus by insurance firm

An insurance firm has awarded its best salesmen an unusual form of bonus - an orgy with prostitutes in a renowned Hungarian spa.





About 100 top salesmen were invited to the orgy, which featured numerous scantily clad hostesses and about 20 prostitutes, Ergo insurance spokes-man Alexander Becker said.



The event, organised by one of Ergo's divisions in Budapest's art-nouveau Gellert Baths, represented a clear violation of the company's values, he stressed. "All measures have been taken to prevent a repeat of such an event," Becker said.



Those responsible for the June 2007 event -- dubbed an "incentive trip" -- have since left the company, he added.



Prostitution is legal in Hungary and Germany.



Ergo Insurance belongs to Munich Re, one of the world's biggest reinsurance companies. Ergo's board of directors only learned about the orgy when those responsible for it had already left, Becker said.



Budapest is known for its thermal baths. Some of its many spas are used for film screenings and parties.
