CNBC writes: Bobby Kotick, Activision Blizzard CEO, joins 'Squawk Box' to discuss how his company transitioned to working from home, what he's done to assist their comfort and the spike in activity the company is seeing as more people turn to video games during quarantine.
The uncertainty created by the coronavirus pandemic can take its toll on employees. For the 10,000 or so who work at Activision Blizzard around the world, one person they can call is CEO Bobby Kotick.
“About a month ago, we sent out an email from my email address with my phone number and we encouraged every single employee that has a concern that relates to their health care to just contact me directly,” Kotick told CNBC’s Becky Quick on “Squawk Box.”
Kotick said “a few hundred” employees have reached out to him since that email. “But we’re fortunate. Very few actually tested positive so far for Covid-19.”
