More than a thousand Activision Blizzard employees sign request to remove your CEO
Activision Blizzard, Inc., previously referred to as Activision, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATV), is a US video clip game business that has Activision (Creator of the Phone Call of Task Legend, Guitar Hero, Tony Hawk and Slanders to name a few) as well as Blizzard Entertainment (Developers by Wow, Diablo, Star craft, Overwatch amongst others). Since its combination in 2008 as well as succeeding acquisition by Tencent Holdings, Activision Blizzard has ended up being one of the most vital Third-Party for the USA as well as worldwide, attaining a market capitalization of 49 billion dollars.
After the controversy that uncovered a recent report published by Wall Street Journal, which affirms that Bobby Kick, CEO of Activision Blizzard, also participated in the cases of abuse and abuse within the company, more Of a thousand employees have already signed a petition, demanding that the manager abandon the position immediately.
ABK Workers Alliance, a group of employees of Activision Blizzard that was formed as a response for treatment that the company has towards its workers, launched a request today, which is directed for all the Personnel within the study and aims to require the immediate resignation of Kick. For at the time of writing, this document has already reached a thousand 200 signatures.
We, the workers, we no longer believe in the leadership of Bobby Kick as CEO of Activision Blizzard. The information that came to light regarding the behavior and work practices of him as head of our company is contrary to the culture and integrity that we require from our leadership-and enters into direct conflict with the initiatives that we proposed. We asked Bobby Kick to renounce his position as CEO of Activision Blizzard, and that shareholders are able to choose the new CEO without Bobbys comments, who are aware is the owner of a substantial portion of the Voting Rights of Shareholders.
Specifically, this request has gathered a thousand 211 signatures, which equals approximately 12% of the entire workforce of Activision Blizzard. Despite being a relatively small figure, it is worth noting that workers are publicly signing, it is Say, with its names and respective charges within the company. This would mean that anyone who has signed could be at risk of being unemployed, although dismissing any of them to sign would end up being counterproductive to the company.
Editors note: I think sooner or later, Kick will have to give up the position of it before things come out of control even more. The executive is under the public gaze, and after the comments of both Sony and Microsoft, surely the shareholders of Activision should begin to rethink if it is really worth Kick to follow the company.
