Uber India laying-off 600 employees, which is about a quarter of its workforce


Uber is laying-off 600 employees which is about 25% of its total workforce in India, the job cuts, which affect teams across customer and driver support, business development, legal, policy, marketing, and finance, are part of the company’s global restructuring


“The impact of Covid-19 and the unpredictable nature of the recovery has left Uber India with no choice but to reduce the size of its workforce. Around 600 full time positions across driver and rider support, as well as other functions, are being impacted. These reductions are part of previously announced global job cuts this month. Today is an incredibly sad day for colleagues leaving the Uber family and all of us at the company. We made the decision now so that we can look to the future with confidence, and I want to apologise to departing colleagues and extend my heartfelt thanks to them for their contributions to Uber, the riders, and the driver partners we serve in India,” said Pradeep Parameswaran, President for Uber’s India & South Asia businesses


The company said to be providing 10-12 weeks of salary & medical insurance for the next 6 months, to the employees who were being let go
