Helping 1000 employees “misfired” and “massfired” by Flipkart

In an unfortunate turn of events, Flipkart announced last week that it is “firing” 800 to 100 employees.

I wrote a LinkedIn post on this topic and was overwhelmed to see 100+ comments from people who have expressed their shock on the way Flipkart has handled this entire event.

Looking ahead: Connecting Flipkart employees with new employers

Criticization doesn’t help anyone. In the above LinkedIn post, I proposed an initiative to easily connect these employees with future employers. The response was overwhelming — 60+ companies (including Amazon, FabFurnish, HackerEarth, GoJek etc) have so far showed interest in hiring these employees.

Encouraged, we have planned a 3 day online event called “Flipkart Connect” to connect the outgoing employees with new employers. A 100% free event, this will give these employees a chance to connect the right future employers, quickly and privately.
