Fuc*ing Putin – a truly apolitical ABB

Another example of what I was fighting at ABB. So small and so huge.

February of 2015, during a meeting, participants: my “mentor” – HR Director ABB Jerzy C. the main guardian of ethics and Stanislaw (me).

Current subject of the discussion is: the sales records and the reason why the outcome is what it is.

HR Director Jerzy C.:

…Ok, here you’ve got some of my explanations.  They’re rather objective: the market, the inflation, this and that, Ukraine, whatever, it doesn’t matter, there are hundreds of possible explanations, Ukraine and this fu*ing Putin, and so on…

Doubts:

  1. What President Putin had to do with my budget implemenation?
  2. Why HR director Jerzy C., the example of ethics and the guardian of the standards in ABB is insulting the head of Russia during a business meeting? What did he even mean by calling him “fu*ing”?

Let’s try to understand:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I’m an ex-worker of ABB company – also present on the Russian market. I am writing to You because since two years I’ve been trying to ally doubts that had arousen in February of 2015, during a business meeting with the HR director in Poland, Mr. Jerzy C., all of which I described on my blog: mabbing.com

As my case is already in the Labour Court in Poland, I would like to ask you to kindly answer the questions below. The answers can help me to confirm that the termination of my contract by ABB was unfounded.

  1. What your President had to do with my budget implementation?
  2. I cannot understand why HR director Jerzy C. from ABB, who should be an example of ethic standards, would let a business conversation take a turn to politics, describing the Head of Russia in such way – I would let you to deal with this, from my part I would like to ask in what sense your President Putin can be called ‘fu*ing’ and how was that suppose to influence the sales in 2014 in Poland?

Stanislaw

Do not worry! The results of the survey of another guardian of the ethics of the ABB CEO – Mr. Paweł Ł. will be published soon!
