Survey asks U.K. ambulance workers: Was Hitler cool?
Staff members from a British ambulance service contacted their union to complain about a survey in which they were asked whether they thought Adolf Hotler was a "cool" leader, the BBC reported Tuesday.
The U.K. National Health Service issued a survey in which the ambulance staff was asked to rate several leaders, including Hitler.
According to the BBC, the NHS defended its survey, saying it had asked staff to rate various leaders like Gordon Brown and Richard Branson for the purpose of evaluating what people thought characterized good leadership in order to make the organization more efficient.
"There was no intention to cause any offense," the NHS spokesman told the BBC.
Several staff members however, complained that they found the question inappropriate and a waste of money, the BBC reported.
