I am sick and tired of the Uber situation being labeled a PR disaster...it's a business disaster, ethical disaster, poor management disaster. PR has nothing to do with it.
In fact, its associations like this that give people the wrong impression about the role of public relations or communications in business. It's not to cover stuff up...or try to make something bad look good. Its role is to communicate the value a business can bring to its customers, employees, stakeholders. Stop saying Uber's problems are a PR problem! #rantover #geez
Last week, after reviewing the findings of one of those investigations, Uber announced that it had fired about 20 employees, including execs. Now, after interviewing hundreds of employees, Holder's investigation results are in. His report allegedly proposes major shake-ups to HR and senior management. Yesterday, the board put its voting hats on to decide whether to accept the findings of that report – and whether Kalanick needs to take the bench.
