HSBC Employees Find Out That A Mock Beheading Is A Poor Team Building Exercise

HSBC Employees Find Out That A Mock Beheading Is A Poor Team Building Exercise

Sometimes team-building goes a little too far.

A group of HSBC employees are looking for employment after posting an ISIS-style mock execution video on Instagram for some reason. According to The Sun, the employees, from the bank’s legal division, were in the middle of a “team-building exercise” when things got weird.

HSBC issued this response:


So that’s HSBC’s legal team? A bank that big is supposed to employ the brightest legal minds to deal with international banking regulations and complex banking systems that the rest of us can’t even begin to comprehend. This is less than comforting.

No word yet on what this “team-building” exercise entailed, or how the wheels came flying off so quickly. This is the problem with team-building: It’s always lame, and sometimes, it’s so lame that your employees decide to start fake beheading each other. Whatever happened to going to happy hour and talking just talking shit about the coworkers who didn’t show?
