Technology firms looking for employees are taking aim at former Twitter Inc employees who were laid off by Musk, urging them to relocate to their firms where they can thrive and disagree respectfully.
“As a leader, getting criticized is part of your job,” Katie Burke, chief people officer at Hubspot wrote in a LinkedIn post. “Great leaders recognize debate and disagreement makes you better and is part of the process. If you want a place where you can disagree (in a kind, clear manner of course) with people, HubSpot is hiring.”
CoderPad, another company that took a similar strategy to Hubspot, recently issued public letter to ex-Twitter employees, stating that “At CoderPad, we believe your skills say it all. Not where you sit. Not if you sleep at work. Not working 7 days a week for 18 hours a day.” This message pokes fun at Musk’s Twitter ban on remote work.
It is currently unknown whether any of the laid-off employees took advantage of the opportunity provided by these tech firms.
