London, Apr 21(ANI): Over 1,300 workers at Aviva Investors, the insurer's asset management arm, were shocked to receive an exit e-mail from the company's human resource department.
The memo, which was intended for one employee was sent to all employees by mistake, The Telegraph reports.
It read: "I am required to remind you of your contractual obligations to the company you are leaving. You have an obligation to retain any confidential information pertaining to Aviva Investors operations, systems and clients. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and wish you all the best for the future."
The memo instructed all Aviva Investor workers to hand over company property and security passes and all electronic passwords before stepping out of the building, besides reminding staff not to spill any company secrets.
The mis-directed move came after Aviva chief executive Andrew Moss' announcement of the board overhaul.
Aviva later apologised for its mistake. (ANI)
