Jakarta, Reportase – Ahead of Eid al-Fitr, Sayurbox, a startup engaged in the e-grocery sector, again terminated its employment relationship (PHK).
However, it was not stated how many employees were affected by the layoffs this time.
CEO & Co-Founder of Sayurbox, Amanda Susanti, explained that even though the company has strong growth in the B2B (Business to Business) segment, the B2C (Business to Consumers) market segment has not grown as predicted during the pandemic.
For this reason, Sayurbox has combined several B2C warehouses, consolidating instant delivery services into same day delivery in order to increase operational efficiency.
The company carried out a restructuring team to other sales channels within the organization. However, this move forced Sayurbox to let go of several members of the B2C team.
Management recognizes the significant contribution and dedication of the team members and sincerely thanks them for their hard work.
“This decision was not taken lightly, but it is necessary to ensure the long-term sustainability of the company,” said Amanda in a written statement, Friday (14/4/2023).
The company promises to provide the necessary assistance to the parties affected by this decision, including a compensation package in accordance with the applicable laws and regulations. The management will also provide a number of programs, namely by providing access to job search platforms from companies that have vacancies.
Meanwhile, B2B and B2C business and services are still running as usual and will continue to serve loyal customers for both next day and same day services for the Jabodetabek and Surabaya areas.
Sayurbox is known to have closed several of its warehouses, including in Karawaci and Cibubur. The layoffs announced ahead of Lebaran continued the company’s efficiency policies which resulted in layoffs of 5% of employees last December.
