On Tuesday, Uber released to employees the results of an intensive study into its corporate culture. 
The 13-page report includes recommendations like re-naming the War Room the “peace room” and limiting some of Travis Kalanick’s responsibilities at the company. 

The CEO also announced he’s taking a leave of absence in the meantime. 

The Holder report is the culmination of a several-month investigation into Uber’s workplace. The company hired Eric Holder, the former US attorney general, in February after a former engineer at the company wrote a blog post describing a “strange” year she experienced at Uber. Her blog post included accusations of sexual harassment and gender discrimination throughout the company.

An additional investigation, led by a separate law firm, resulted in the firing of more than 20 Uber employees after the firm received 215 claims of sexual harassment and other bad behaviours at the company.

Holder’s report is based in part on those 215 claims, which largely detailed discrimination and sexual harassment at the company.
