Less than two hours ago we were talking about a new series of testimonies collected by the Wall Street Journal about the case of Activision Blizzard, whose high spheres were accused of inappropriate behaviour towards employees and unequal payments between men and women.
The stories reported in the report signed by Kirsten Grind, Ben Fritz and Sarah E. Needleman also highlighted the CEO Bobby Kotick, who would have kept quiet and covered cases of harassment in his company despite the fact that he was not in charge of
Kotick’s comment is not too late to arrive: in a video message addressed to his company’s employees and reported in full on the official website, the CEO sent back all the accusations with decision, stating: “There is an article published today that All those who doubt my belief that I am part of the most welcoming and inclusive workplace on the square do not really understand how important it is to me.”

ABK Workers Alliance, born in July and composed of the company’s employees, “has established a zero tolerance policy,” announcing that “it will not remain silent until Bobby Kotick is replaced as CEO.”
