Disney is about to open the doors of Pixar Studios in Burbank, California, and with it the Disney Human Resources Department, which has a major say in hiring and firing at the company.
The move will open up the Human Resources department to Disney, and there’s no telling what Disney might do to further entrench its dominance over Pixar.
Disney, the world’s largest media conglomerate, is currently the third largest studio in the world, with around one billion annual dollars in revenue.
But it’s the second-largest media company behind Netflix, and it has an even bigger role to play in the creative process than its closest competitor.
Pixar, the studio behind many Pixar classics like Finding Nemo, Finding Dory, Toy Story, Monsters University, and Cars, is one of the most popular animation studios in the entire world.
In 2018, the company won the Academy Awards for best animated feature and best animated short, but it’s also become one of Disney’s biggest revenue generators.
Pixar’s human resources department, as it’s known, has a direct impact on every Pixar film, every Pixar movie being made.
Disney is currently in the midst of a massive transformation in how it does business, with CEO Bob Iger taking on a more hands-on role and bringing more autonomy to Pixar.
While Iger was initially fired in February 2018, he was reinstated after the studio won an Emmy for the 2018 Oscar-nominated film The Good Dinosaur.
The announcement comes a few months after Disney CEO Bob Fosse, who oversees the Disney Animation Studios, stepped down following the 2018 financial results.
This means Pixar is now in a position where it can take direct control of its own creative destiny.
In 2019, Disney will also begin hiring Disney employees, but with the announcement that it will be opening Pixar Studios to the public, the focus will now be on hiring more talent.
Pixar Studios is a very different place than it was when Disney acquired Pixar in 2016.
It was a closed operation until 2019, and the company has since been transitioning its human resources departments to an open-source system.
Disney’s human resource department will no longer have any corporate oversight, and will now operate independently of the company’s business operations.
This has allowed Pixar to focus more on developing its own talent, which is a key component in creating successful films.
While it’s possible that Disney will continue to employ some of the current talent in the Human Resource Department, the decision to make the move to an in-house system will allow the company to create more diversity in the ranks, especially as Disney has recently introduced a new hiring tool that allows people with disabilities to apply for a job.
Iger has previously said that he plans to give more authority to the Human Rights Department, and that the Human Relations department will focus on creating more diverse hiring teams and hiring more qualified people.
This is a good thing for the industry, because Pixar’s talent will be more diverse, and more talented, in the future.
