The trainer, Jiang Yang, has issued an apology, saying the spanking was “a training model I have tried for years” and had not been instigated by executives at the bank…
The video, which first surfaced on Monday, appears to have been taken by someone in the audience on a smartphone.
Mr Jiang is seen reprimanding eight bank employees on stage, asking them why they received the lowest scores in a training exercise.
The employees give answers including “I did not exceed myself”, “I did not co-ordinate with my team” and “I lacked courage”.
Mr Jiang then says “get your butts ready” and proceeds to spank them with what appears to be a thick piece of wood.
Here is more along with the video. It seems the spanker focused his apology toward the bank executives rather than those who were spanked.
For the pointer I thank Ray Lopez.
