In an unfortunate turn of events, Flipkart announced last week that it is “firing” 800 to 100 employees. I wrote a LinkedIn post on this topic and was overwhelmed to see 100+ comments from people who have expressed their shock on the way Flipkart has handled this entire event.
Looking ahead: Connecting Flipkart employees with new employers
Criticization doesn’t help anyone. In the above LinkedIn post, I proposed an initiative to easily connect these employees with future employers. The response was overwhelming – 60+ companies (including Amazon, FabFurnish, HackerEarth, GoJek etc) have so far showed interest in hiring these employees.
Encouraged, we have planned a 3 day online event called “Flipkart Connect” to connect the outgoing employees with new employers. A 100% free event, this will give these employees a chance to connect the right future employers, quickly and privately.
- Where is this event?
This event is completely online. No need to travel anywhere. Just connect with the right employers discretely.
- Is there a pricing?
No. This is completely free for both employers and employees.
- What kind of employers will I find at this event?
All the employers will be verified. We will not give access to third party recruitment agencies.
- What kind of candidates will I find at this event?
All the candidates currently working/having worked at Flipkart.
The event starts on Tuesday (9th Aug) at 11 am. If you are a Flipkart employee or an employer looking to hire them, please register here.
Let us know if you have any suggestions or comments.
