Making business profitable

This development comes closely after Unacademy has cut down 12 per cent of its workforce in the company’s third round of layoffs. Munjal called this decision in line with company’s plan to meet the goals that it is chasing in the current realities. He noted that Unacademy has taken every step in the right direction to make its core business profitable, yet it is not enough. 

Unacademy laid off 600 employees in April 2022, and another 350 employees were given the pink slip in November 2022. Unacademy-owned Relevel also cut off 40 jobs in January 2023, as it shifted business focus.
