Flipkart has come strongly and denied the news of employees’ lay off hovering around the media corridors. Yesterday, most of the media houses have reported that India’s leading Eretailer is planning to shell out around 700-1000 employees from its grid as they failed to meet company’s expectations.
Denying all the reports, company’s spokesperson stated that Flipkart denies all allegations of a lay-off. At times, company has employees who do not meet the performance bar. In those situations, officials work closely with employees to enable them improve their performance. In due course, if these employees are unable to make the desired progress, they are encouraged to seek opportunities outside the company where their skills can be better utilised. As a performance-oriented organisation, we follow a transparent evaluation process.
