“Zuckerberg was asked a question about how employees can be expected to trust the company’s leadership after two rounds of layoffs. He said he expects to be evaluated based on the company’s performance and transparency about its mission, but leaders should be allowed to change their minds,” the news agency reported.

“I think the way people will judge whether you trust me and want to work for this company is whether we succeed in making progress toward the overall stated goals,” Zuckerberg said in town hall. “I think a lot of this has to do with the results we can achieve.”

Zuckerberg was also asked a question about the company’s plans to work remotely. He said it might be an “ongoing conversation,” but he didn’t completely rule out the possibility of back-to-office orders.

Another employee raised the psychological consequences of the layoffs on the company’s employees. Mr. Zuckerberg acknowledged that the uncertainty that results from disclosing layoff intentions in advance is real, but added that “we can’t pause while we find out.”
