Rundle, R. L. (April 24, 2007). How an email rant jolted a big HMO. The Wall Street Journal, pp. A1, A16.

 

Summary:

    Mr. Justen Deal, a 22-year-old employee of Kaiser Permanente, sent an 2000-word email to everybody in the company through the company’s network, accusing the higher management of their poor or bad performance. This email, dismissed as untrue by the company later, caused huge stir in and out the company, brought some trouble such as extra audition and monitoring, and obviously hurt the company’s reputation. Kaiser found every means possible to repair the damage, and finally fired Mr. Deal, although reportedly for other reasons instead of the email accident. The article gave a detailed narration of this story.

    This case reveals that, as IT becomes so popular nowadays, how easy an organization may be caught by a small action such as sending emails, from someone so unnoticeable such as a common employee, and how severe the damage could be. It poses an issue for the higher management and the IT department of organizations to consider.
