Onyx Path Welcomes HR Consultant

Press Releases

Base Onyx Path logo

Onyx Path Publishing are pleased to announce we have hired an independent HR consultant to handle any issues relating to personnel or workplace grievances or queries.

Georgina has a history of working extensively in HR, people management, and training in the financial sector, and has no connection to the gaming industry. We feel this is pertinent, as we wanted to hire someone without bias toward games or the creatives who work on them. For the same reason, while Georgina will be the recipient of complaints, issues, and queries sent to her inbox, she will not be attending our regular meetings, conventions, or otherwise socializing with the people at Onyx Path, to maintain a clear distinction between her role and ours.

We invite you, if you have any concerns about the people who work at Onyx Path, or have experienced historic incidents that need to be brought to our attention and handled, to email Georgina at hr.onyxpath@gmail.com, where your enquiry will not be missed or sent on to anyone named in said communication. Georgina is based in Europe and will typically be working a five day week, so please allow for time differences and a possible delay in responses to emails sent her way over the weekend.

Georgina’s email has been added to our updated Contact page, which is linked in the website footer.

    How can we trust you that this lady with no last name (for good reasons as you wouldn’t want randos to google her) is really independent, and that email isn’t a dummy one?

    Because OPP’s record in terms of transparency is less than stellar (denying YOU, Richard Thomas, is the one who sought and hired ShaneDF, because “oh it wasn’t OPP back then”, but it was White Wolf Atlanta, which means you could not have been ignorant of it all.. shady, at best).

    Please give us a reason to trust you. Beyond your word.

      I don’t have a magic wand to wave that will make someone trust us that this is a good faith effort to improve things for both Onyx Path and the industry in general. The trust needs to be earned by how well this external HR solution with Georgina works out now that it exists.

      As for your specific concern: I have never hired Shane, nor suggested he be hired. If you look at the positions I held at WW through the decades, Shane was never hired into a department that I ran. We did not run in the same circles, either in work or out of it, so, no, I was not aware of the allegations that have recently come to light about him.

      Don’t feed the trolls, Nicholas. 🙂 I only responded in order to let others reading see where we are and to address the false story the poster is spreading. There’s no point trying to talk with them, they are just here to attack.

    Nice to see you guys making a good effort. Honestly, while there have been some setbacks, I feel like Onyx Path try to be on the right side of society when they can.

    As someone who works in law enforcement and, in particular, sexual assault investigations, I can confirm the narrative of “They must have known” is seldom true. Even when the abuser is a parent, more often than not the other parent had no idea. This often leads to a feeling of guilt for not having realized what was going on. In the end, you can’t change the past. All you can do is take action to prevent situations like this in the future and equip yourself to better handle them if they do happen. Which is what you’re doing.

    While I hope Georgina finds herself with as little as possible to do, I’m glad she’s here to do it. Welcome aboard!
