Statements given by Evan Speigel

Speigel reported gave a speech to his employees to boost their morale. “While we have built substantial capital reserves, and have made extensive efforts to avoid reductions in the size of our team by reducing spend in other areas, we must now face the consequences of our lower revenue growth and adapt to the market environment,” the statement from Spiegel said.”It has become clear that we must reduce our cost structure to avoid incurring significant ongoing losses,” the statement from Spiegel to employees reads.“Unfortunately, given our current lower rate of revenue growth, it has become clear that we must reduce our cost structure to avoid incurring significant ongoing losses,” Spiegel said.“We are restructuring our business to increase focus on our three strategic priorities: community growth, revenue growth, and augmented reality,” Spiegel added. “Projects that don’t directly contribute to these areas will be discontinued or receive substantially reduced investment.”

Employees response

The employees of the company were not very happy with Speigel’s speech. The words of encouraged that were given with the intention to motivate the employees actually backfired. Recent reports said that Speigel said, “it’s time to prove the haters wrong”. this statement wasn’t considered very suitable and appropriate after Snap just fired 12oo employees from its firm. This is not what the employees needed to hear. “Kind creative and smart is the motto at Snapchat,” one laid-off worker after the cuts, according to the outlet. “Looks like that went out of the window right away when things started going bad.” The company has been facing a lot of losses. They have not been to adjust to the new policies introduced by Apple.
