Ceo fires hundreds then takes time off


“You guys know that at least 250 of the people terminated were working an average of 2 hours a day while closing in 8 hours+ a day in the payroll system,” he wrote. “They were stealing from you and stealing from our customers who pay the bills that pay our bills.”

In an interview with Fortune, Garg said that he and his team reviewed individual employee productivity data, including missed telephone calls, the number of inbound and outbound calls and employees showing up late to meetings with customers.

Current employees reported that after Garg fired those workers, he held a companywide call about the layoffs and told the remaining employees that their productivity would be closely watched.

“His tone was extremely harsh and threatening,” an staff member told Fortune.

In their email to employees, which was obtained byVice, the company’s board called the events “very regrettable” and said that the company has contracted a third-party firm to do a “leadership and cultural assessment”.

In anapologyposted to the company’s website, Garg said that he “failed to show the appropriate amount of respect and appreciation for the individuals who were affected.”
