Zomato confirms laying off 3% of its workforce

Zomato is firing less than 3% of its whole employees.

TNI Bureau: Following three top-level departures earlier this month, food delivery giant Zomato is firing less than 3% of its whole employees.

A Zomato spokesperson stated, “There has been a routine performance-based churn of under three percent of our personnel; there is nothing more to it.”

Before these layoffs, Zomato employed about 3,800 employees, according to the company’s most recent earnings report. After working there for about four and a half years, Zomato co-founder Mohit Gupta announced his resignation on Friday.

Zomato CEO Deepinder Goyal stated in a regulatory filing that Gupta had saved Zomato from extinction, grew the company to new heights, achieved profitability, and most importantly, had trained Goyal over the years to be capable of managing “such a vast and complicated organisation.”
