9. The Thrilla in Manila at Uber
When COVID 19 forced a lockdown of offices citywide – large conglomerates were faced to salvage what they could while transitioning their workers from vibrant corporate workspaces to the newly incorporated home offices.
With almost an entire City working from home, those empty offices lay dormant paralleled with thousands of furloughs. Uber, who closed their DTLA customer service center back in March laid off 80 employees and moved its operations to the UBER Manila Center of Experience in the Philipines.
