Do you remember the new year tweet from Huawei? The tweet was made by two Huawei employees from an iPhone. Reports say that Huawei fined two employees for tweeting from the company’s account via an iPhone.
According to Bloomberg, the company is blaming the mistake on their overseas social media agency. For some reason, the company decided to punish two employees from the marketing department. The employees have to pay a CNY5,000 (about $700) fine. But that’s not all, the employees suffer from a single-level demotion. Also, they can not experience any future promotions for the next 12 months.
The reports say, one of the two employees was the head of the digital marketing team. The company may now tighten the management of suppliers and partners as the incident exposed flaws in our processes and management.
