Uber Board to Discuss CEO's Future, Workplace Culture

Montez Delgado | 24 Junio, 2017, 20:51

Michael was considered a right-hand man for Uber CEO, Travis Kalanick. The board announced today that it had unanimously voted to follow all recommendations given in the report once details are made available.

Under Mr Kalanick, Uber has shaken up the taxi industry in hundreds of cities and turned Uber into the world's most valuable start-up, worth almost £54 billion.

- Uber's board met on June 11 to discuss a report from former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder on his investigation into the ride-sharing company's culture and practices. Fowler now works for digital payments company Stripe.

And this is just one of a string of scandals that have hit hit the company in recent years.

Also in February, a video was released of Kalanick arguing with an Uber driver on Super Bowl Sunday. He later apologised, saying "I must fundamentally change as a leader and grow up".

One Uber investor said the board's decisions were a step in the right direction, giving the firm an "opportunity to reboot". She is also the first board member to be added since Alphabet's chief legal officer David Drummond stepped down from his post in August of 2016 over a conflict of interest. Neither Kalanick nor Holder's law firm, Covington & Burling, responded to requests for comment.

An additional investigation, lead by a separate law firm, resulted in the firing of more than 20 Uber employees after the firm received 215 claims of sexual harassment and other bad behaviors at the company.

Along with over dozens of sexual harassment cases the report also included instances where Kalanick took his employees to a karaoke-escort bar when they visited Seoul in 2014.

Under Kalanick, Uber has shaken up the taxi industry in hundreds of cities and turned the San Francisco-based company into the world's most valuable startup.

The company has said that all recommendations from Holder's investigation are to be implemented. Uber now has nine board members and seven hold super-voting shares that give them more power.

Kalanick himself proposed a leave of absence last month, after the death of his mother and hospitalisation of his father following a boating accident.

Employees and former employees interviewed by Holder's team complained about sexual and racial bias, bullying and retaliation, according to people familiar with their accounts.
