Ray Kelvin has been criticised by a group of former and current staff for a regime of “forced hugs” and alleged harassment at the retailer’s head office. A former employee who used to work at for the fashion chain Ted Baker created a petition in 2018 to put an end to his “hugs” and allegedly inappropriate activities with staff, as a result of an unconfirmed lack of support from Ted Baker’s HR department.
The company, in a statement, said that it was currently “in dialogue” with Organise to “understand the details and nature of the claims”.
