Ubisoft Chief People Officer Leaving Company

Ubisoft's Chief People Officer Ankia Grant is leaving the company at the end of November. Grant was hired in April of 2021 to revamp the HR department following a series of high-profile abuse scandals at Ubisoft. Grant is leaving to "pursue new opportunities" according to GamesIndustry.biz.

Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot released a staff email within Ubisoft which states that the search for Grant's replacement is "well underway".

"Anika has been instrumental in leading the transformation of Ubisoft's human resources and talent management function since she joined the company," Ubisoft told GamesIndustry.biz in a statement.

"She and her team implemented consequential changes and programs that greatly contributed to fostering a safe, respectful, and inclusive working environment in which all Ubisoft team members can thrive and realize their full potential. We warmly thank her for her many contributions.

"Anika is leaving Ubisoft at the end of November to pursue new opportunities and we are working on a smooth transition over the coming weeks to prepare the appointment of a new Chief People Officer, whose mission will be to continue driving HR excellence at Ubisoft."

This move by Grant comes soon after the arrest of five former Ubisoft employees following a year-long sexual harassment investigation.
