Healthify also known as Healthifyme has fired 150 employees in a restricting exercise, as per Inc 42. The sales and the product teams have been impacted in the latest round of layoffs which took place in Healthify.

The company’s co-founder and CEO, Tushar Vashist, confirmed the layoffs, stating that the move was aimed at making Healthify’s India business profitable and expanding its presence in the US market.“In the next three-four months, our India business will turn EBITDA profitable and this restructuring was an unfortunate but an important step in line with achieving this.
