In an open letter circulated on Twitter, more than 60 former employees of Brewdog allege that the rapid growth the company has experienced in recent years has led to the company cutting corners on health and safety, espousing values it did not live by, and creating a “toxic” culture that left employees suffering from mental illness.
“You spent years claiming you wanted to be the best employer in the world, presumably to help you to recruit top talent, but ask former staff what they think of those claims, and you’ll most likely be laughed at. Being treated like a human being was sadly not always a given for those working at BrewDog,” the letter states. The letter was posted on Twitter last Wednesday.
James Watt, BrewDog’s CEO and co-founder posted a reply on Twitter last Thursday.
