Alphabet’s Google on Thursday announced that it is changing policies around sexual harassment. Last week, over 20,000 Google employees and contractors around the world staged a walkout over sexual misconduct reports in the company. Even more, Google reportedly gave a $90 million exit package to one of its top executive in 2014 after he was accused of sexual harassment.
In an email to employees, Google’s Chief Executive Office (CEO) Sundar Pichai said that they are updating rules, including introducing a drinking limit for staff.
“We recognize that we have not always gotten everything right in the past and we are sincerely sorry for that. It’s clear we need to make some changes,” wrote Pichai in that email.
