LinkedIn’s senior executive in charge of human resources has resigned, supposedly over compliance issues according to anonymous sources. The people who have provided this information have also told that the matter is not public yet. Hence the reason for their anonymity.
Christina Hall resigned over compliance issues. Christina or the company have not made any specific comments about the violations she was booked for.
“Nina McQueen will lead our global talent organization on an interim basis while we conduct an internal and external search for a replacement,” said Ngaire Moyes, spokeswoman for LinkedIn, in an emailed statement on Wednesday, declining to comment further.
Hall had been an integral part of other silicon valley companies like Facebook, Intuit etc. She had been working at Linkedin for quite some while and had served a lot of responsibilities at the Microsoft owned company. She had led the company’s human resources team, and oversaw hiring and benefit programs at the company.
Christina has not publicly spoken out against the company. From the looks of it, this seems more like a ‘getting caught’ scenario than a ‘harassing workers’ scenario. The details will become a lot clearer after an official announcement from the company. As of yet, the matter is still behind covers.
Linkedin is one of the biggest platforms for job searching and was acquired by Microsoft in 2016 for 26.2 billion dollars.
