Aviva Investors sacks entire workforce by e-mail

By mistake!
Quote:
More than 1,300 workers at Aviva Investors, the insurer's asset management arm, were shocked on Friday to receive an exit email from the HR department.
There was a stunned silence at the London headquarters as staff across the division read the unsympathetic memo - intended for just one employee.
It instructed all Aviva Investor workers to hand over company property and security passes on their way out of the building, and submit all electronic passwords.
The terse communication reminded staff not to spill any company secrets.
It read: "I am required to remind you of your contractual obligations to the company you are leaving. You have an obligation to retain any confidential information pertaining to Aviva Investors operations, systems and clients."

Of little consolation, the final line said: "I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and wish you all the best for the future."
Minutes later staff were relieved to receive a grovelling message from HR apologising for the blanket email.

Re: Aviva Investors sacks entire workforce by e-mail

Even sending such a missive to one employee by email seems a tad crass. Presumably the employee to whom the email related was intending to leave the company of their own volition but such a terse message from HR shows how little grace and man management skills the staff in that department possess.

Sadly thats world we live in today electronic. Management should show bottle and fire staff face to face. Even think they should not shove dirty work to understudies do firing themselves. That way eliminate stupid things like this.

I hope the staff walked out that would show the company.

If I was them would be demanding nice apology of pay rise or bonus holiday full pay.
