Gojek creates talent directory following 430-person layoff

🌎 Jakarta ∙ 👩 430 employees (9%) ∙ 🖥 Multiple departments

Gojek, Indonesia’s largest startup, laid off 430 employees (9%) in late June. The ride-hailing company joined its global peers Grab, Uber, Lyft, Ola, and Kapten in cutting staff as a result of pandemic-induced lockdowns.

In the wake of the layoff, Gojek created a talent directory to showcase its affected employees (see link 👇). The Gojek layoff list features 177 former employees, primarily in Indonesia.

Gojek’s layoffs were concentrated in its GoLife (household services) and GoFood Festivals (physical dining) business units. The company plans to shut them down in order to focus on its core businesses of transportation and food delivery.
