Today I saw the news that Ryanair rejected investor’s pressure to not elect the long-serving chairman David Bonderman which made me think about the current situation of Ryanair and mainly it’s leadership and problems with recent strikes.
I have not invested in Ryanair and I am not planning to any time soon mainly due to the treatment of employees and the style of leadership. Ryanair has faced pressure from unions, strikes and the list goes on. I understand that Ryanair is built on the idea of cheap air travel but for me personally, the basic idea of a company leadership taking care of its employees is so important. It is not rocket sciences because when the leaders take care of the empleeys, they would be happy to work for the company and that would be seen by the treatment customers get. When the customers are happy then I am more than sure that shareholders are going to be happy.
I don’t see a lot of hope for Ryanair unless its culture and leadership wakes up. I wanted to ask what you guys think about the current situation of Ryanair?
