They accuse Paradox (Crusader Kings 3) of bullying and gender discrimination


According to a survey conducted in August by two Swedish unions, there have been allegations of gender discrimination and bullying at Paradox Interactive, the company behind Crusader Kings 3. According to the results of a survey conducted by Unionen and Sveriges Ingenj├Ârer, 44 percent of the 133 employees who took part in it experienced some form of workplace abuse, according to Breakit.


According to the research, 69 percent of the women polled have experienced abusive treatment in the course of their professional lives. In the case of men, the ratio is lower: only 33% have reported to have been subjected to this form of treatment. According to the survey, the organization has a culture of silence, with nearly no employees believing that these acts have been dealt with effectively.


"At Paradox, offensive treatment is a systematic problem that is all too common." In the document, they have come to this conclusion. Meanwhile, Paradox will respond with its own internal poll, which will be given to the company's employees soon. He stated in an email that he is in the process of bringing in "an external and neutral business" to assess the problem.

Paradox's leader left a few days ago.

Paradox Interactive's CEO, Ebba Ljungerud, has stepped down. The executive announced her departure from the company a few days ago. The reason for her resignation, according to the official announcement, is that she holds "different points of view about the firm's future strategy." Ljungerud will be temporarily linked to Paradox in order to ensure that the transfer of powers is completed appropriately. Fredrik Wester, a co-founder of Paradox, will return to his post as CEO, which he resigned from in 2018.

“As CEO of Paradox Interactive, Ebba has done an outstanding job. During her time, the company's organization, player base, and game projects have all gotten stronger and stronger, laying a solid platform for future expansion. “We are sorry that he has decided to quit, but we wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors,” said Hkan Sjunnesson, who will succeed Wester as Chairman of the Board of Directors.
