Civitas Learning Lays Off About 10% of Staff in Strategic Shift
Civitas Learning, a fast-growing Austin edtech company, laid off roughly 10 percent of its staff as part of a strategic realignment, founder and CEO Charles Thornburgh confirmed to Austin Inno on Friday.
“It was an incredibly difficult decision, even though it was not a giant piece of the company,” he said. “Even though we’re enormously convicted that this was the right decision for the business, every one of those people that was affected played a part in the success we’ve had so far.”
“None of this was based on their performance,” he added.
