Adecco heeft in haar pogingen om achtereenvolgens haar diefstal van het concept en de naam van Around the world in 80 jobs te verdoezelen, toen dood te zwijgen en vervolgens toe te geven tegelijkertijd de participanten in haar eigen competitie tekort gedaan. Waarmee de volgende social media blunder van ‘s werelds grootste uitzender is begonnen. Een van de participanten in deze competitie heeft op Adecco’s Facebook actiepagina de volgende reactie geplaatst:
First, I want to make it very clear that I don’t care about losing this competition. It was a competition and that is the nature of such things. However during my interview, it was stated to me that winners would be announced and that we would be notified of our win or loss on June 25.
Instead, you remained dead silent the entire day yesterday. You did not even send a simple email stating why winners and losers were not notified on the day you publicized. Then today you randmomly send out emails to everyone saying that we lost…which is ok…and refuse to announce the winners as conveyed by your organization. It is not transparent. It is not fair that we not know who we lost against.
I’m highly disappointed in your lack of ethics at this point. I have tried to remain understanding but you have gone too far. We deserve to know who the winners are because we deserve to know who we lost to. When I am told something, I expect it to happen. If it doesn’t then I lose faith in the organization. Keep your word and let us know who won this contest. Currently, it looks as though it’s just all lies and games with you.
Hopsakee! In haar paniekerige pogingen om van de negatieve berichtgeving verlost te raken heeft Adecco zich in het volgende wespennest gestort.
