Laid off employee holding box

Fintech startup Simpl announced the layoff of 30 employees across various departments in another round of job cuts. 

The company said this decision is part of an ongoing effort to become fiscally prudent and achieve profitability by mid-2025. 

Ashish Kulshrestha, Head of Communications at Simpl, said: "As an organization, we routinely review our businesses to improve efficiencies and become more agile and leaner to drive consistent growth.”

He added: "Over the last few years, we have scaled our business exponentially and in order to drive this growth in a sustainable manner, we have been undertaking a series of measures to improve operational efficiencies."

The affected employees will receive a fixed salary for a two-month notice period and an additional 15 days of fixed salary for every year of service with the company.
