How are you?
Thanks very much for responding to me. I have received your reply thank you.
Actually, I started working two weeks ago in a UK MNC in Singapore doing publishing.
I was managed by two persons; the Group Production Manager (female Chinese) and the Group Publisher (male Indian).
A lot of things happened within these two weeks.
Touching or giving pats onto shoulders – I don’t think this is right and have told the HR.
This group publisher was really furious as he said “you don’t bite the spoon that feeds” and the HR is not going to help me.
He told me this is a UK MNC, we follow the UK culture and touching or giving pats is nothing and you need to learn our culture not being stubborn.
The Group Production Manager sits in and agree with him.
Gilbert, I am a Chinese from Singapore. I am not from UK, I am not British – definitely touching is not part of my culture as well.
A friend of mine actually advise me to speak with the police and the police told me this is called “Molest”. But I do not have any evidence I would say.
I have made a decision to inform the Managing Director and I will CC you in it.
I am on my way to drafting this email to the director.
I would appreciate if you would post the email to Transitioning.org and I hope you can remove my name.
I am not sure besides emailing the Managing Director and Transitioning.org, would AWARE be helpful?
I hope you can further advise who I can email before I sent out on Monday?
Thank you for your time.
