Dunzo layoffs

Dunzo will layoff employees in the coming weeks. During the meeting on Friday, the Dunzo CEO warned employees of another round of layoffs if the company fails to manage its cash flow situation. 

Dunzo has also been delaying salaries because of the worsening cash flow situation. The Reliance Retail-backed Indian startup will also vacate its current headquarters in Bengaluru in cost cutting efforts. 

A senior employee told Moneycontrol, “We were told that Dunzo was looking to give up its office space 2-3 months back because there were hardly any people working from the office.”

What employees can expect?

According to Dunzo employees, the company may ask employees to work from home (WFH) in order to find solutions for its worsening cash flow situation. 

Previously, in a cost-cutting measure, Dunzo laid off employees in three rounds of layoffs. Gripped by a funding crisis, employees must be ready for another round of layoffs because the company has other payments to make.
