Byju’s Shuts All Offices Except HQ, Asks 14,000 Employees To WFH: Report

Due to the ongoing crisis, the edtech company Byju’s has asked its 14,000 workers to work from home and has closed all of its offices save for its Bengaluru headquarters.
With the exception of IBC Knowledge Park in Bengaluru, where more than 1,000 employees are employed, sources told NDTV Profit that the edtech behemoth has left all other office buildings in the nation.

In a letter to the employees sent last month, Mr. Raveendran stated that the company could not process the February salaries because the investors were still blocking its funding.
