Marketing Recruiter Comments on Kieran Allen Resignation

Simon Bassett, Managing Director of specialist marketing recruiter EMR said.

“Regardless of the way Kieran Allen feels he may have been treated, he may live to regret his parting shot in the long term, if not his resignation. Attacking the conduct of his former bosses has ensured his fame in social media circles, but the very same tweeters who are sharing the story with glee may one day have his CV on their desk and will think twice about hiring someone who feels this is best way to settle a complaint. By sending such a personal attack to all users at his company, Allen is playing a dangerous game in a sector which prides itself on speedy and widespread communication – meaning his message has certainly got out, but at potentially huge cost to his future career.

“For their part, media companies must be extra vigilant about staffing issues as they know more than anyone about the power of social media and the potential capability of their employees to damage the brand’s reputation should they wish. Mr Allen’s employer may have thrown money at him to stay after his initial resignation, but they failed to fulfil the pastoral side of its responsibilities as an employer and have paid the price. Throwing money at a disgruntled employee rarely works out in the long run, as this extreme case proves.”
