On this occasion, Vineet Mangal, Managing Partner & Co-Founder, Beewise Consulting has raised a concern by a post saying, “Sad and shocking to read the news that the CEO died and the President battling for his life in the silver jubilee celebration at the company event.”
“Do we go mindlessly the extra mile to create thrill in employee engagement and risk so much for building entertainment? Is there a lack of professional ethics towards safety & and security in general or life is so cheap that tolerates shoddy jobs?”, he added.
He further said, “Is a BCP (business continuity plan) only a textbook chapter that the corporate world fails to practice? High time the #corporate takes note of these points and should not view this as a mere another accident.”
