Huawei Punishes Two Employees for Tweeting from an iPhone

When two Huawei employees tweeted Happy New Year from their iPhone, little did they know this could bring demotion and salary deduction? It turned out, the Chinese phone maker demoted the two and deducted 5000 yuan from their monthly salary.

iPhone usage is a hush-hush affair for the people working with Huawei. A tweet on Twitter or a post on Facebook from an iPhone can cost you your job. Sounds incredible? Ask two of Huawei employees, who have been demoted by the company management.

Among the tensions between Huawei and the US authorities over the extradition of Huawei’s finance chief Meng Wanzhou, a tweet from two employees from iPhone came as thunder and lightning, and the Chinese phone maker doused the fire with the demotion of two employees.

Huawei Demotes Two Employees for Tweeting From an iPhone

According to a screenshot taken by 9to5Mac, the two employees posted New Year’s greeting from the company’s official Twitter account, and that too by using an iPhone.

Huawei's Latest Tweet from iPhone

Notably, Huawei replaced Apple from its second position in 2018, and now it is accelerating for the number one position in the world.

On top of this, 9to5Mac added fuel to the fire. And the poor employees didn’t find any shelter from the fury of Huawei’s top management.

To save its face, Huawei blamed this blunder on an agency, which operates the company’s social media overseas. But the company didn’t spare the employees as the punishment included a deduction of 5000 yuan ($730) from their monthly salary and a single-level demotion.

Bloomberg News had seen the internal memo circulated by Huawei’s management among the public and government relations team and in the consumer business unit. One of the employees was head of Huawei’s digital marketing team.

In the memo, Huawei said “Employees must now tighten management of suppliers and partners. The incident exposed flaws in our processes and management.”

That’s all!

Summing up…

On the one hand, Huawei blames social media agency for this gaffe and on the other, the company punished its two employees. This clearly reveals Huawei’s double standard. In addition to this, the business rivalry between Apple and Huawei is ever rising as businesses in China have been rejecting Apple products and embracing devices made by Huawei and other companies from home ground.
