Aviva Investors accidentally fired all 1300 of its global staff by e-mail on Friday, before realising its error and retracting the dismissals.
While this creates a giggle, isn't there a serious problem in the fact that this company feels that it is OK to fire people by email??!
Its a sad state of affairs when HR feel that remote sackings are the right way to go about things. Such cowardly behaviour says it all about Human Remains today that was once a department that cared for employees
They deserve all they get for this embarrasing mess and hopefully a few HR heads are lopped off
