Reuters exclusively reports culture conflict over coronavirus at Alibaba’s Lazada

Reuters reported exclusively that staff at Lazada, the Southeast Asian arm of Alibaba Group Holding, are furious over demands that they must submit health reports daily and other coronavirus-prevention steps seen as too invasive, highlighting a long-running culture clash with management from China. While the e-commerce firm describes the health reports as not mandatory, employees receive frequent calls from human resources, even on weekends, to ensure the reports are submitted.
