Asian travel startup Klook releases talent directory

🌎 Kuala Lumpur, Taipei, Mumbai ∙ 👩 At least 83 employees ∙ 🖥 Customer Experience, Business Development

Klook, a travel activities booking platform backed by SoftBank, set up a talent directory to support recently-departed employees (see link 👇). In April, the company laid off or furloughed more than 300 employees. That spring Klook saw its revenue drop by as much as 90% as global travel abruptly halted.

It’s not clear whether the Klook talent directory is meant to cover the April layoffs, or if there’s been a new round since then. The website, launched 2 weeks ago, says that the company “recently had to part with great people.”

The Klook layoff list features 83 ex-employees, most of whom were in its Customer Experience or Business Development departments.

The company has witnessed a rebound recently as it caters to the rising demand in staycations.
