Today on the Techpoint Africa Podcast, we discuss layoffs by companies within and outside the tech space. We had human resources expert, Wenyimi Barber in the studio to walk us through the situation.

What we discussed:

  • What to expect in the coming days,
  • How to protect yourself from being laid off,
  • How to tell your employees they are being let go,
  • The effect layoffs have on employer and employee, among other things.

You can catch up on the conversation on Google PodcastsApple PodcastsSpotifyYouTube, and anywhere you get your podcast. You can also send your questions and observations to or share your thoughts using the hashtag #TechpointAfricaPodcast. 

Think Maleficent, with more than a little touch of Jade West and a sprinkle of Sponge Bob SquarePants and you've got me. You can follow my sparsely updated adventures on Twitter @WestsidePOV.
