We started the Layoff List project almost a year ago – when COVID hit, we got a 2000% spike in traffic and dozens of companies going through layoffs started emailing us spreadsheets of their departing employees asking if we could help.
It was almost immediately clear that a mailing list and spreadsheets were not going to be enough for the scale of what is happening. Everyone has to be working on this together.
I’m proud to announce the launch of Layoff Network – a way for everyone to help those affected by layoffs, no matter where you are or what the scale.
How it works
- Anyone – companies or individuals, can nominate their colleagues being laid off
- Companies that are still hiring get a live feed of nominations with search and filters
- Job seekers can get connected to companies via introductions through the network
We’ve launched it for free. No strings attached, and we already have over 100 companies that are still hiring who want to get introduced to you. You can join here
This is just the beginning – we’ll be adding more features to help investors helping their portfolio companies, and tools for companies that need to conduct high volume layoffs at scale which can significantly reduce their costs. Read more here…
