A letter to present Better workers was released on Blind today by a confirmed Better worker. Garg lamented in the letter how he mismanaged the termination announcement last week, saying, “I failed to demonstrate the right measure of respect and admiration for the employees who were impacted and for their contribution to Better.” I made the choice to lay off employees, but in explaining it, I messed up the implementation. I humiliated you by doing so.”

Some may claim that he also humiliated himself. According to various reports, the firm’s inclusiveness staff was among those impacted.

Sources acquainted with internal business occurrences said that the firm’s Vice President of correspondence, Patrick Lenihan; director of public affairs, Tanya Gillogley; marketing head, Melanie Hahn, had all tendered their resignations. 

The reaction from the manner Chief Executive Officer Vishal Garg managed the dismissal of over 900 individuals, as originally reported by TechCrunch, has been extensive, ranging from objections to the process being conducted through Zoom to accusations of dishonesty on the part of Mr. Garg. Memes on the video have also appeared on the social video platform TikTok, with people from all around the world have condemned Garg’s conduct.

Last week, the internet mortgage company declared that it had accepted a capital injection of approximately 750 million dollars as part of a revision to its SPAC contract with Aurora Acquisition Corporation and SoftBank. The business is scheduled to go public at a valuation of 6.9 billion dollars.

Garg also told Fortune this week that the firm suspected “at least two hundred and fifty (250)” sacked employees of skimming from the company and consumers by performing only two hours per day. Garg addressed the business in a live-streamed town hall shortly after announcing the layoffs.  According to a secret tape of the session shared with Insider, he sketched forth a goal of ” Version 2.0 of Better,” with a “slimmer, meaner, stronger staff.”

The issue on everyone’s mind right now is whether shareholders and board of directors will condone Garg’s antics, or whether he will be driven out in the way of Adam Neumann.
