Company Accidentally Fires Entire Staff Over Email

redletterdave writes "On Friday, more than 1,300 employees of London-based Aviva Investors walked into their offices, strolled over to their desks, booted up their computers and checked their emails, only to learn the shocking news: They would be leaving the company. The email ordered them to hand over company property and security passes before leaving the building, and left the staff with one final line: "I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and wish you all the best for the future. "This email was sent to Aviva's worldwide staff of 1,300 people, with bases in the U.S., UK, France, Spain, Sweden, Canada, Italy, Ireland, Germany, Norway, Poland, Switzerland, Belgium, Austria, Finland and the Netherlands. And it was all one giant mistake: The email was intended for only one individual."

"Lockstone said that Aviva's quick actions to correct the issue
ensured that no employees were truly offended."

I figure there's one, technically they were still an employee.
