A total of 130 employees at Bergendahls Food in Hässelholm in Sweden learned that they would be fired through a link to a pre-recorded video.
“We did not have the opportunity to ask any questions, because as soon as the video was over, the screen just closed,” an employee of the company, who wished to remain anonymous, told the newspaper Norra Skåne.
Bergendal’s Food was taken over by the company Dagab last autumn, and many employees have since expected that they would lose their job. But they did not expect the notification to come through a video.
Dagab’s head of communications, Marie Svaton, told Norra Skåne that the company chose to inform the workers about the dismissals digitally due to the corona situation. She explained that the company decided to communicate the message through a pre-recorded video instead of a digital meeting because the message was important.
