Summary: ” Uber on Tuesday embarked on a 180-day program to alter its image by allowing riders to give drivers tips through the Uber app, something the company had resisted under Kalanick. Uber’s board said in a statement that Kalanick had “always put Uber first.” The company has faced high turnover in its top ranks. The demand came into a letter titled “Moving Uber Forward.” “I love Uber more than anything in the world, and at this difficult brief moment in my personal life I’ve accepted the investors request to step aside, accordingly that Uber shall be able to go back to building rather than be distracted with an additional fight,” Kalanick reportedly said in a statement to the Times. The company’s board confirmed the move, saying in a statement that Kalanick is taking time to heal from the demise of his mother in a boating accident “while giving the company room to completely full to capacity embrace this new chapter in Uber’s history.” He will remain on the Uber Technologies Inc. Five of the company’s key investors on Tuesday demanded that he resigned, according to The New York Times, which first of all reported Kalanick’s decision to step down. Under Kalanick, Uber has disrupted the taxi private industry in hundreds of cities, and turned the San Francisco-based company into the world’s almost all valuable startup.”
