Uber Adopts New Standards For Management As The CEO Takes Time Off

Uber CEO Travis Kalanick is taking time away from the company

Uber's been in a PR nightmare after revelations that its growth-focused culture led to management ignoring problems like financial misbehavior, discrimination and even sexual harassment

The embattled CEO has had his own bout with bad press for his aggressive management tactics. He's also been grieving for his mother, who died in late May in a boating accident that also seriously injured his father. 

Kalanick's announcement came on the heels of the departure of his senior vice president and "right-hand man" Emil Michael.
