Paradox accepts independent audit’s findings, vows to ‘leave no stone unturned’

In late 2021, reports emerged that painted a bleak picture for Paradox Interactive, most notably a majority of the company’s female employees reporting “abuse” of one kind or another in internal investigations. Additional interviews with former employees followed, and they basically said, “Yeah, there’s something wrong with this place.”

In response, Paradox commissioned an audit of the company, Gender Balance, a Swedish company specializing in discrimination, harassment and equality issues. The various unions have agreed with this choice. The report, written by Paul Bengtsson and Anneli Häyrén, is titled “Review Paradox Interactive’s organizational capacity to address discrimination, bullying and victimization‘, now published.
