Motivational: When Giants are cutting expenses, fired employees sets up new company


San Francisco: There are mainly two approaches to failures in life. One, to be sad and spend rest of the life brooding over the same and the second to raise like that of Phoenix and do something monumental in life. Henry Kirk, who was fired by google chose the second path.

Most global companies have recently taken the step of mass layoffs as part of solving the financial crisis. Among these, massive layoff took place at Google. Google laid off around 12,000 employees. Even those who performed well were dismissed in this way. But Henry Kirk, a former employee of Google who lost his job, did not give up. Henry lost his job as a senior manager at Google.

Instead of being sad about losing his job, Henry Kirk opened a design-development studio in San Francisco along with his six ex-colleagues. Henry posted this on LinkedIn.

“I’ve always been a big believer that hard work and results will get you far in life. While this event may place doubt in that belief, it is my experience that these life challenges present unique opportunities.

Today, I’m taking a leap forward and turning this tragedy into an opportunity. I’m teaming up with 6 outstanding ex-googlers to shape and own our futures.”, he wrote.
