Zomato Lays Off Around 60 Employees On Account Of ‘Redundancies’ In India
Foodtech startup Zomato Media Pvt. Ltd. has laid off around 60 employees, mainly from its customer support department in Gurugram, on account of "redundancies".
"Over the last few months, our service quality has improved, and the percentage of orders requiring support has come down significantly, creating redundancies for about 1 percent (60 people) of our workforce," a Zomato spokesperson said in a statement.
Most of these redundancies are in the customer support department and also include movements to other departments as part of our internal job placement exercise, the statement read.
"As we've expanded to over 500 cities across India, we also expanded our workforce by over 2,000, and this requires constant realignment to new departments and results in some redundancies with the scaling of technology," the statement said.
Zomato provides in-depth information for over 1.4 million restaurants across 24 countries and serves more than 70 million users every month.
