# Roommates, social media virtually exploded when a leaked video of a company’s zoom call showed that its CEO had brutally laid off 900 employees just before Christmas – and now, he’s apologizing. Better.com CEO Vishal Gorg has formally apologized in a letter to the rest of his staff as he laid off nearly a thousand members of his staff earlier this week.
বিশালNBCNews reports that Vishal Gorg, CEO of the mortgage company Better.com, wrote a letter to those still at the company after he unexpectedly laid off 900 employees during a zoom call. “I would like to apologize for the way I handled the cuts last week. I have failed to show due respect and gratitude to the victims and their contribution to the betterment. I am the owner of the decision to cut, but I executed it when contacted. I embarrassed you for doing this. I understand that the way I have reported this news has made a difficult situation worse. I am deeply saddened and committed to learn from this situation and to do more for the leader you expect me to be, “Gorg wrote in the letter.
A leaked video of a Better.com Zoom company’s call was posted on TickTock, where Garg broke the news that about 15% of the company’s employees were being laid off — and that they would receive only four weeks’ pay. And three-month benefits. The video went viral because many believed Gorg was so cold and dismissive that he broke the financially devastating news to his employees just in time for the holidays. During the video, he said, “It’s not news that you want to hear, but in the end it was my decision and I wanted you to hear it from me. This has been a really, really challenging decision. But we are cutting about 15 percent of the company. ”
He continued, adding, “If you are in this call, you are part of the unfortunate group that is being cut. Your employment here has been terminated, effective immediately. “Although he apologized, some of those who were laid off do not believe it was sincere.
A now-former employee told the media outlet that the giant Gorg only apologized to save face and clear the PR nightmare that the video had caused the company in such a short time.
