It is been revealed that Better.com CEO Vishal Garg announced the mortgage company is laying off about 9% of its workforce on a Zoom webinar Wednesday abruptly informing the more than 900 employees on the call they were being terminated just before the holidays.

“If you’re on this call, you are part of the unlucky group that is being laid off,” Garg said on the call, a recording of which was viewed by CNN Business. “Your employment here is terminated effective immediately.”

He then said employees could expect an email from HR detailing benefits and severance.

Garg cited market efficiency, performance and productivity as the reason behind the firings. Fortune later reported Garg accused the employees of “stealing” from their colleagues and customers by being unproductive and only working two hours a day.

“This is the second time in my career I’m doing this and I do not want to do this. The last time I did it, I cried,” Garg said on the call, which remained short and emotionless.

Among those fired were the diversity, equity and inclusion recruiting team.
