Bungie's head of HR steps down following reports of toxic workplace culture
Gail Dhondt, Bungie's head of human resources, is stepping down from his position at the studio just under a week after a report emerged about Bungies' supposedly toxic work environment. IGN spoke with 26 current and former Bungie employees to create this report, and a little less than a week after it was posted, Bungies Chief of Staff Gail Dhondt resigned. In doing so, dHondt said they believe the Bungies leadership team should move forward with new people, or rather, people who reportedly have not tolerated the toxic workplace culture described in the IGN report.
IGN reported that dHondt stepped down from office today (Dec 16) and acknowledged the culture issues at Bungies in an email sent to employees. IGN is now reporting that Gail Dhondt, Bungies' head of human resources for 14 years, has stepped down from the position, although it is unclear if she left the company entirely or not. Sources say an email was sent to all Bungie employees in which D'Hondt detailed the company's efforts to promote a culture of toxic work by firing various people.
Bungie's head of human resources, Gail d'Hondt, resigned after a high-profile message detailing the company's troubling issues of sexism, racism, toxicity and harassment. Bungie's head of human resources is stepping down after reports of racism, sexism, crisis, and a bad culture at the company. In an email recovered by IGN, DHondt said that in his opinion, Bungie's leadership should be fresh and full of people who don't tolerate inappropriate culture. There doesn't appear to be a better microcosm for Bungies' historical and corporate cultural issues than its narrative team, which has experienced toxic leadership, crisis issues and, at times, unmanageable divisions between Old Bungie and New Bungie cultural ideas, and more - all in recent five or six years.
An extensive report recently released showed that Bungies' work culture includes sexism, crisis, brotherhood, and the protection of the human resources of rapists. In an article that IGN spoke to over two dozen Bungie employees, it was pointed out that HR will always act on the reports provided to them, rather than hiding and protecting toxic people. Sources claim that in almost every story we hear, HR and management have received numerous reports of these people, to no avail. In general, the corporate culture is constantly evolving, but over the past few years, Bungie has taken certain actions in the right direction.
Management, including Parsons in their response to this article, says Bungie does not tolerate the culture of "rock stars", which in other societies encourages distressed and popular people to use their position to harm others, whether through harassment. , toxicity or other forms of abuse. He elaborated on a number of actions the company has taken in recent years to change its culture, many of which have also been mentioned to us by current and recent employees of the company. Their stories of work culture and learning span a wide range of experiences.
Once again, I suspect this will be the last major change since this article, even though Bungie has been working hard to improve it over the past few years. The announcement was made only five days after IGN issued an investigation into Bungiea's toxic corporate culture. According to the investigation, Bungie HR was part of the problem. Although Bungie’s games are well received and well received, it seems that the company’s culture still has room for improvement.
Change in Air In an email to Bungie staff, daHondt announced his retirement. Following IGN's explosive article on the past and present working environment of Destiny 2 developer Bungie, we have had our first major organizational shift. IGN revealed that an email was sent to Bungie staff today. Bungie, the famous creator of Halo and Destiny, the latter of which recently featured the Dawning holiday event, is often considered one of the most creative creators of sci-fi shooters.
