"The last time I did this, I cried," said Better.com CEO Vishal Garg as he sacked 900 employees over Zoom without warning.

Better.com CEO Vishal Garg has fired 900 employees – 9% of the entire company – without warning – and on Zoom.

Garg told employees of the New York mortgage firm that they are so lazy that it amounts to stealing from customers.

“This is the second time in my career I’m doing this, and I do not want to do this,” said Garg.

“The last time I did it, I cried. This time, I hope to be stronger. Having to conduct layoffs is gut-wrenching, especially this time of year.”

In 2020, Forbes magazine reported on Garg as telling employees in an email they are “dumb” and “too damn slow”.

Just last week, Better.com received a cash injection of almost R12 billion from a Japanese investor.
