We do not auto-grat our clients. We instead charge a higher hourly rate for onsite staffing. This method ensures a reliable rate of pay for staff, better value and transparency for clients and less paperwork for admin staff. That said, if our staff exceed your expectations you are welcome to provide a cash tip to your event staff directly. This money will be distributed among all the staff onsite, at the time of the event.
