Latest Justworks News

When your layoff has a hashtag

Nov 25, 2022

Advertisement There were few scenes of workers packing up their cubicles, shoving plaques in boxes and commiserating over beers. Instead, there were tweets. Hung Truong, an engineer, watched his Twitter feed fill with layoff-related posts . Friends and former colleagues were all out of work. Truong, 39, had been there. At the start of the pandemic, he’d lost his job at Lyft. And he recalled the strange relief of posting that on Twitter, knowing he wouldn’t have to give the painful update to followers one by one. That’s an experience thousands are now sharing, as Twitter, Meta and other companies slash their workforces: getting laid off in a time of extreme transparency, with social media providing an outlet for immediate processing. Elon Musk Credit:Getty Images/Nine This took on a particularly ironic twist at Twitter, where employees used a platform that had created this new era of workplace transparency to talk about their own workplace. Alternately angry and reflective tweets from laid-off Twitter workers stacked up under the hashtags #LoveWhereYouWorked and #TwitterLayoffs. “It was the most humanity-affirming moment that as each tweep was fired, we all posted,” wrote Rumman Chowdhury, who had worked in ethics and transparency at the company, adding the emoji of a salute. “We laughed and rejoiced in the decency and kindness of friends. What a send-off, Twitter.” It’s the nature of job cuts in an age where people often can’t mourn with office mates at a dive bar, but they can share their reactions with millions online. What was once an intimate experience, and often taboo, is now instantly public information. People are posting what was once private, since they are remote and cut off from friends. And platforms that ushered in a culture of transparency in other workplaces are seeing that transparency deployed to reveal their own missteps. Meta is laying off more than 11,000 workers, or 13 per cent of its staff. Credit:AP Photo/Godofredo A. Vásquez “A very quiet and somber activity is now becoming a very loud and vocal activity,” said Eugene Soltes, a professor at Harvard Business School. Advertisement The norms of candid communication that Twitter enabled have been on display at the company throughout Elon Musk’s takeover, as some former employees shared their layoff frustrations in tweets, and Musk used the platform to defend his leadership decisions (and make jokes about masturbation). Loading “The very town square that Elon Musk owns is now exposing all his flaws,” said Mary Inman, a partner at the law firm Constantine Cannon, who has worked with more than 50 whistleblowers, including Tyler Shultz, who helped expose failed blood testing startup Theranos, and Ed Pierson, who spoke up about safety hazards at Boeing. “I’m thinking about ‘The Silence of the Lambs’ — it’s like watching someone eat themselves alive.” Recently, Meta said it was laying off more than 11,000 staff, or 13 per cent of its workforce. Lyft said it was cutting 13 per cent of its employees, about 650 of 5000. Stripe cut 14 per cent of its staff, roughly 1100 people. Some Meta, Lyft and other laid-off workers joined former Twitter employees in posting. “Just found out I’ve been laid off at Meta,” wrote David Jagneaux, a former technology communications manager, on Twitter. “I’m actively seeking my next opportunity.” Viral layoff moments have surfaced throughout the pandemic. A video of CEO Vishal Garg firing more than 900 of his workers went viral in December 2021, provoking an outcry. Braden Wallake, CEO of HyperSocial, a sales and marketing company, posted a photo of himself crying on LinkedIn after laying off two of his 17 workers. Wallake called the selfie “vulnerable”; to many others, it seemed callous to highlight his own feelings when his employees were suffering. Loading But for workers, public layoff processing can provide a boost at a wrenching moment. Some people get offers to interview at other companies: One of HyperSocial’s laid-off workers, Noah Smith, said he received messages from recruiters after defending his former boss’s viral post. It can also provide a sense of community that remote layoffs undercut. And it can create a form of accountability for companies that mishandle their layoffs. “Many of these firms will be hiring again at some point in the future,” Soltes said. “Some of the best ways you evaluate a future employer is how they treated people when times were more difficult. This will come back in the future as those firms try to hire amazing people.” Erika Cartagena, who previously led human resources at Etsy and JustWorks and has overseen mass layoffs at a number of other companies, was gratified people had an outlet for processing amid job cuts that she saw as especially chaotic: “What’s helpful in these situations is when people get to own their own narrative,” she said.
