Activision CFO states how "people are our greatest asset," and how the company "couldn't even be more committed" to improving the work environment.
Actions speak louder than words. Let's revisit this in a few months and see if there is actual change. There is no space for this kind of garbage in the industry.
Short term change is something they have to do but will it go back after this is forgotten about.
I'll keep an eye on you Activision. I hope you're right.
Committed only after being fully exposed. That's not how improvement works, and they're only gonna give into demands to take some of the heat away from themselves. After that they'll go back to not giving any fks about their workers. You want real change? Leave in mass. Hurt them where they care the most, money. Without workers they can't continue a business, and investors will vote out all those in charged who allowed all this shite to happen in the first place
That would require actually leaving though. Not taking a Wednesday off for lawsuit optics.
"People Our Greatest Asset" > Hires Union prevention squad = could've fooled me
"People are our greatest asset." Ok, now that you realize that perhaps, just maybe, it's time to increase the pay of your frontline. You know, the guys and gals busting their ass to actually make your games. You know, since they're you're greatest asset, instead of giving these outrageous compensation packages to the CEO that reaps the benefits of their hard work. You can spit all the bu!!shit out your mouth as you want but until there's fundamental changes it's just more empty, meaningless, corporate PR that leaves the taste of bu!!shit still there.... And naming a woman as co-head doesn't mean that your frat boy culture or bro culture will change. That's another move that cries optics.
ASSET have various definitions under the Merriam-Webster dictionary. The ones ACTIVISION Blizzard like the most? ASSET : ADVANTAGE, RESOURCE —sometimes used euphemistically or humorously in the plural to refer to parts of a person's body (such as the breasts or buttocks) that are considered attractive (...enough at least to make the Cubicle Crawl game worth it of course, and so they can be taken to the Cosby room, and be spied on with a bathroom camera, etc.) : an item(a person) of value owned (mhhh...) Too transparent fuckwads.
“Women have the greatest ass….ets” no no no dude that’s partially what got us here. Change it to “people are assets”
I can’t tell but I hope this is a joke.
It’s def a joke. And it’s not a great place to work. At all. Firsthand experience.
Same ol' corporate regurgitated nonsense....
💩💩💩 💩💩 for you.
"People Our Greatest Asset" Then you should have protected the people you let get harrassed, assaulted, and pushed to take their own lives. F*** all the way off with this generic emotionless response.
Haha greatest asset to rape
What a trash company.
Can somebody please shut them all up?
We are all nothing more than assets for these asshats.
It's all about the money!!
