Ubisoft Singapore responds to reports of workplace misconduct
Following an official government report, Ubisoft Singapore shared a statement addressing allegations of workplace discrimination.
In August 2021, Singapore’s Tripartite Coalition for Fair and Progressive Employment Practices published an investigation into Ubisoft Singapore following allegations of sexual harassment and discrimination. That investigation has now ended with TAFEP’s final report ending the investigation without further recommendations. To respond to the report, Ubisoft Singapore chose to release a statement promising to “continue to strive to be an exemplary employer in Singapore and the region.”
The statement comes from Ubisoft Singapore’s managing director Darryl Long. Long reiterates some of TAFEP’s findings and Ubisoft’s previous statement, that the studio has “adopted best practices … to ensure a safe, respectful, inclusive, and equitable workplace for all employees.” every member of our team.” It should be noted that Long is relatively new to the Ubisoft Singapore team. He replaced the previous head of the studio at the end of 2020 after allegations of harassment and discrimination against Ubisoft Singapore launch to the public.
Long’s statement continued, explaining that Ubisoft Singapore is also striving to be a studio that “attracts and retains the best talent” and “creates great games that enrich the lives of its players.” ours.” Ubisoft Singapore has largely been used as a support studio for Assassin’s Creed game in the past decade, but is also leading the development of the delayed multiplayer piracy game Skull. Skull recently lost a co-directoralthough their departure does not appear to be related to the studio’s investigation.
The conclusions expressed in the TAFEP report are consistent with Long’s comments. The report acknowledges that Ubisoft currently has a structured process for workers’ compensation and employee pay is appropriately performance-based. Regarding the more specific allegations, the report states that Ubisoft Singapore does not “disadvantage Singaporeans on the basis of nationality or race.” It also says that all reports of workplace misconduct have been handled appropriately.
One thing that has not been made clear is whether the current systems at Ubisoft Singapore were in use before the end of 2020 when the allegations were first made. Ubisoft said in May 2021 that it’s making organizational changes, though that is geared towards Ubisoft’s broader issue and not especially Ubisoft Singapore.
It can be difficult to understand how widespread allegations about discrimination in the workplace and harassment at Ubisoft Singapore may result in a report of no problem with the studio. But this is the extent of legal remedies staff at Ubisoft Singapore have. No need to report further about Ubisoft Singapore Treatment of future employees, this is the full extent of the situation.
