Maersk Head of Group HR causes anger among employees

The A.P. Moeller – Maersk Head of Human Resources for the rest of 2012, William S. Allen, has created a stir at the company’s headquarters at Esplanaden in Copenhagen, when he stated in an internal message that the wage differences between male and female employees are based, among other things, on employee performance.

The sender - who wishes to remain anonymous - informs the newspaper that the message caused employees to “shake their heads.”
