VerSe Innovation has announced strategic business developments to tackle the ongoing economic conditions. 


The technology platform that hosts a family of apps such as Josh, Dailyhunt and PublicVibe, has laid off 150 of its employees. 


The company informed the impacted employees on Friday and separately held a town hall meeting on Monday, where it announced pay cuts to its remaining staff. 


To ensure long-term profitable growth, the company has implemented a 11% salary cut for all employees with salaries above 10 lac per annum.

Considering the long-term viability of the business and our people, we have taken steps to implement our regular bi-annual performance management cycle and made performance and business considerations to streamline our costs and our teams. This has impacted 5% of our 3000-strong workforce. To ensure long-term profitable growth, we have exercised fiscal and employee prudence and implemented an 11% salary cut for all individuals with salaries above 10 lac per annum."
