High tech layoffs have been on the rise lately, with over 229,000 employees being let go in the sector in the past 18 months alone, causing tremendous stress and anxiety for those who are affected.
Losing a job in the tech industry can be particularly daunting as it is known for its fast-paced and ever-changing nature. The sudden loss of income, along with the uncertainty of finding a new role, can take a toll on one's mental health and well-being. The impact can be felt not only by the employees but also by their families, colleagues, and the wider community.
