Activision Bllizzard Says It's Having Problems Attracting New Talent

In a recent annual report, the company said that it has difficulties attracting new employees and retaining existing ones due to legal claims and "related media attention".

On Friday,  Activision Blizzard issued an annual report, according to which, the company is facing difficulties attracting new employees and retaining the existing ones.

As stated in the report, by the end of 2021, the company had 9,800 full-time and part-time employees – 300 people more than it had the year earlier. However, Activision noted that over the last year it has "observed labor shortages, increasing competition for talent, and increasing attrition". Also, the company reported "a significantly higher turnover rate" it observed in 2021.

As the Call of Duty publisher has been under several regulatory investigations related to alleged sexual assaults, discrimination, and harassment of female employees, it said that those legal claims along with "related media attention" could cause reputational damage resulting in its recruitment problems.

Previously, as reported by The Wall Street Journal in November, it was said that Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick was aware of multiple alleged sexual misconducts at the company. At the time, Activision spokeswoman Helaine Klasky said that Activision sometimes "fell short of ensuring that all of [its] employees’ behavior was consistent with [the company's] values and ... expectations".
