Violent backlash against bankers, isn’t that so Spring 2009?
Apparently HSBC is still worried about what its customers will do when confronted with bad news.
Daily Mail: A businessman in the North West revealed he arrived at a branch of HSBC in Manchester to be met by what he was told was a new risk management strategy.
This involved the bank staff being required to take personal alarms into meeting rooms.
The man asked why this was necessary to be told: ‘I guess there will be some difficult conversations with clients happening at the moment.’
The personal alarms resemble small pagers that can fit in a wallet.
