Grammarly, a popular AI-driven writing tool, is initiating layoffs affecting 230 employees as part of a reorganisation initiative, with 82 of them based in the United States. 

The Ukraine-based company, which specialises in writing aid and learning tools, stated that workforce reductions are critical in preparation for an AI-centric future. According to a state filing by the San Francisco Chronicle, the layoffs targeted critical jobs such as the head of brand design, human insights, and 17 software engineers.

In Ukraine, where the company was founded in 2009, approximately 37 workers are expected to be laid off. The company has committed to supporting affected employees during this transition period. Each team member from Ukraine will receive compensation for six months, as well as additional benefits such as health insurance and career coaching. Sacked employees will be allowed to keep laptops and other electronic devices.

According to sources, the corporation analysed its organisational structure and staff skill sets, as well as determining its future plan. 

Grammarly, which has offices in San Francisco, Kyiv, New York City, Vancouver, and Berlin, serves its global user base from numerous locations.
