offers voluntary separation plan to remaining employees after two mass layoffs

Less than a month after sacking 3,000 employees in the US and India, Better is set to cut its staff even further – but this time, through a voluntary program, not on a surprise Zoom call.

The digital mortgage lender is offering some of its US-based corporate, product development and engineering staff 60 days of severance pay and health insurance coverage if they voluntarily resign, according to sources familiar with the , reported on by Bloomberg.

Better’s newly appointed chief human resources officer Richard Benson-Armer cited the “uncertain mortgage market conditions” for the move.
