During a Zoom meeting on Monday host Ellen DeGeneres, and producers Andy Lassner and Mary Connelly, addressed staff about the changes that will be taking place and the results of the internal investigation.
Senior producers Ed Glavin and Kevin Leman and co-executive producer Jonathan Norman were reportedly dismissed after being accused of sexual harassment.
To boost morale amongst the staff, new perks were also announced at the meeting.
Variety reports that staff will have five paid days off to use at their discretion, birthdays off, and paid time for doctors' appointments and family matters.
