Several new staff perks have been announced at The Ellen DeGeneres Show. This is a follow up action as the program grapples with multiple “toxic workplace” accusations and the resignation of some top producers.
A human resources executive provided by “Ellen” distributor WarnerMedia has already begun work. He attended several zoom meetings, another insider said. The executive does not report to show leadership, providing anonymity to workers with grievances and a dedicated advocate.
In a Zoom call to employees, Ellen DeGeneres announced new benefits they will receive as part of their employment contracts.
A source told Variety the perks includes increased paid time off and a liberal medical leave policy – five paid days off to use at their discretion, birthdays off, and paid time for doctors appointments and family matters.
