Zomato layoff list continues trend of company-launched talent directories

🌎 Gurugram ∙ 👩 520 employees (13%) ∙ 🖥 Multiple departments

An India-based restaurant guide and food delivery startup, Zomato laid off 520 employees in mid-May due to huge declines in food delivery activity. The company also said that remaining staff members would be subject to temporary pay cuts starting in June.

In order to help ex-employees land on their feet, Zomato created an official talent directory (see link 👇). In a tweet, the company’s CEO put in a “humble request to all organizations that are hiring to review the Zomato Talent Directory.”

The official Zomato layoff list contains almost 300 ex-employees spanning multiple business functions. Other startups that have launched internally-developed alumni talent directories include Airbnb, Uber, Samsara, and Agoda.
