By now, you’re more than likely aware of the recent investigative report that Kotaku released yesterday. The report was about female game testers that were experiencing sexism, sexual harassment, and more at Nintendo of America and the contractor companies that have worked with them.
Well, Nintendo of America president Doug Bowser has sent out an internal email to employees discussing the matter. In it, Bowser says he’s aware of “media coverage involving claims made about worker conduct”, and states that “we have strict policies designed to protect our employees and associates from inappropriate conduct and expect full compliance with these policies by all who work for or with us. We have and will always investigate any allegations we become aware of, and we are actively investigating these most recent claims”.
Bowser also recommended employees contact “your HR Business Partner” if they “experience, have experienced, witness, or have witnessed anything concerning such behavior that is contrary to our Standards of Conduct, employee handbook, or Company Values”.
