Activision Blizzard CEO Addresses The Workplace Issues In An Open Letter- Inner

It appears that Activision Blizzard is seriously considering about improving the company’s image. In an open letter, originally written on October 28, 2021, to the employees, CEO Bobby Kotick has addressed some of the issues that have been plaguing the work environment at the company.

Amongst other things, the company is facing charges on sexual harassment and its toxic work environment. It all came to a head since California’s Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) brought charges against the company, for its “frat house” like work culture. Since then, the company has been under fire for the same, with many even opting out of playing its games.

In the open letter by Bobby Kotick addressed to the employees of Activision Blizzard, the CEO outlines the commitments and initial progress the company has made to address the issues that have been plaguing the workplace.

In addition to the letter, the company in a tweet from their official Twitter account, announced that “We are listening and taking action. Our ambition is to make Activision Blizzard the most welcoming and inclusive workplace in our industry”. It further stated that, “We’re investing $250M to expand opportunities for diverse talent across the gaming and tech industries”.

Activision Blizzard Seems To Be Serious About Improving Its Present Image

Following the publishing of the open letter, Activision Blizzard also posted that the company will be taking measures to ensure better working conditions for their contract employees, as well. The news was shared via a tweet by @blizzjess (an ABK Workers Alliance member). These include, amongst other things, sick leave, a pay raise and paid time off.

It is high time that the company starts heeding to all the issues that have been plaguing it. It would not only work towards ensure a safer work environment (a basic right for everyone), for all but also ensure that a healthy work environment persists.
