Byju's laid off over 2,500 employees across its group companies - Whitehat Junior and Toppr


Byju's laid off over 2,500 employees across its group companies, as the Byju Raveendran-led unicorn seeks to aggressively cut costs as demand for edtech services moderates after two years of hypergrowth.


Byju's has laid off full-time and contract workers from Toppr, WhiteHat Jr., and its core team in sales and marketing, operations, content, and design. While Byju's laid off over 1,500 employees from Toppr and WhiteHat Jr, the two companies it acquired over the last two years, on June 27 and 28, it sent e-mails to nearly 1,000 employees from its core operations teams on June 29, according to sources. Byju's has laid off approximately 1,200 people from Toppr alone.
