Arke staff told to shake hands with customers

People who work for Dutch travel firm Arke risk being sacked if they do not shake hands, Nos television reports on Friday.

Customers should also be given a cup of coffee and invited to sit down when they enter one of the 130 Arke branches, a spokesman told the broadaster.
The instruction comes from the parent group and is all about giving a ‘decent’ welcome to customers.
