Activision Blizzard: Dismissals and warnings after sex

As the end of last year, Activision Blizzards CEO Bobby Kick had apparently known by the sexism cases in the company . The first measures were first taken when the DFE (California Department of Fair Employment and Housing) started the process against the company. Since then Kick promises a quick solution to the problems. If that does not succeed, he wants to take his hat according to his own statement .

AVIS CEO is powerful under pressure, because the share has lost almost 30 percent value since the release of the sexism scandal. Employees demand their resignation and also from the gaming industry he can not expect any restraint. So what did Kick have done so far?

Kick holds information under closure

According to a report of Wall Street Journals 37 employees have been terminated and 44 disciplined . In October alone, 20 employees were to be fired, and 20 other employees have been caught up. But the exact numbers are still behind Bobby Kick.

According to the report, the layman should publish a summary of this information before the Christmas holidays . The competitive CEO Bobby Kick should still keep the information under closure because he probably feared that they would make the problems of Activision even worse . Since July, there are allegedly around 700 reports on misconduct and other problems of employees have been submitted. A spokesman for Activision Blizzard demonstrates this assumption compared to the Wall Street Journal.

The question arises when the right time for publishing this data is. Perhaps one fears for an even deeper crash of the ATV share when investors are confronted with further bad news around Activision Blizzard.
