Activist want the maximum: it doesn't matter the topic, or your perspective on it. Ultracrepidarian companies should look before the leap. Research the issue and decide how it fits into your public relations and business culture. Perhaps you can only be in or out, but most topics are not binary so to speak. Don't count on the activist to set your tone. Otherwise you'll be flipping from one set of activists to the other.

I honestly wouldn't put it past the executives to have done this to increase attrition. I feel they know their workforce well, and know which employees would have reacted poorly to their social media blunder (older employees likely earning more).

I just feel like everything this company does with its employees is designed to increase attrition. Be it offensively bad rewards, removing the employees ability to choose where they work, extremely un-flexible protocols, creating a toxic workplace ect ect ect.

Need to get those operations cost metrics down!

@1wmi. To retreat in a battle often times results in winning the war. Keep your bedroom antics in the bedroom and out of politics minion.

“State Farm did the right ethical decision to pull their support.”

That is, if repeating a false narrative spewed by right wing trolls and then never apologizing for it or correcting it or taking accountability for it is what you consider to be the right ethical decision.

Also, I hate to point out the obvious, stable genius, but State Farm pulling its support is the exact OPPOSITE of standing its ground.

The key is stand your ground. The truth and normalcy will always win. State Farm did the right ethical decision to pull their support.

@jyj—This was a little blip on the radar. Messy, but disappeared within 48 hours. As for your final assertion, Blockbuster was a leader in a short lived industry whose core product became completely obsolete. State Farm has dominated a long lived industry for 80 years, and most of the criticism it receives from within is because people don’t want to adapt to change. But sure-those are exactly the same.
