"A grave violation of company rules"

A German company reels from accounts of a sex party for executives and sales agents:

Twenty prostitutes and canopy beds in an open-air bordello: A Hamburg-based insurance company has acknowledged treating its best agents to a debaucherous party in Budapest during which sex workers were color-coded according to their purpose and given stamps to tally each encounter. The company magazine later gushed about the "killer fun."

Obvious questions: What in that company's culture made anyone think that such an event would be anything close to acceptable? What are the odds that similar events will emerge?

These reports amaze me. In what world is this considered acceptable?
