CEO Of ‘Better.com’ Brought 900 Employees On Zoom Call So He Could Fire Them

Merry Christmas, everyone.

Well, I guess that’s a pretty practical way of firing 9% of your entire workforce. Just invite them all onto a Zoom meeting and give it to them straight. That’s 900 employees that the mortgage company let go in an instant, just in time for Christmas.

If you’re on this call, you are part of the unlucky group that is being laid off. Your employment here is terminated effective immediately.

Brutal stuff. And while the general consensus seems to be that CEO Vishal Garg is a douchebag for this move, it has to be better than having 900 employees commute into the office just to be told to go back home again, right? Or having someone from HR ring up 900 people and give them the news individually. We’ve already decided that it’s all about Zoom meetings in the pandemic era. Just have the CEO hop onto a Zoom meeting and call them an “unlucky group”. Just a bit unlucky, that’s all!

Obviously it sucks that all these people have lost their jobs before Christmas, but I don’t think Vishal Garg takes any joy in that. If it’s gotta happen, then does it really matter how it happens? Quick Zoom meeting, boom, job done. Merry Christmas, everybody!
