Godaddy showed another example yesterday of companies using COVID as an excuse to trim some fat. I’ve talked to dozens of people that work for companies that were finally able to get rid of some people that were tough to get rid of. As soon as workmans comp became more lenient they used it to drop the problems. Not saying all the people let go were problems but they showed their overlap when people started working from home and were judged individually and not as a group. All that being said, I felt Godaddy looked bad by saying that sales and future prospects looked great but they were laying off 800 people because of COVID.
I’m sure Godaddy struggled with the announcement. They realized that they can do as much, or more, business with less people. So they are. All the while saying COVID is the reason. It IS the reason but it wasn’t the cause. It was the change in routine that flushed out staffing issues. How do I know? I know because their sales are up, they will guide up. We all know in the industry that people are moving online and using domains to hold their place. Sales are great for domain investors so I would imagine it translates to Godaddy as well. The domain industry isn’t big enough to swallow 800 people so the industry got smaller yesterday and that’s never a good thing.
