About 240 employees at Voxpro’s Folsom office have been informed they’re being laid off, two employees of the company told The Sacramento Bee this week.

Voxpro focuses in tech support and customer service. It was bought by Telus in 2017.

One employee, who’s worked at the Folsom office for about a year but did not want to give her name out of concern for future job prospects, said Thursday that an email was sent to about 240 employees telling them that they had been laid off and their last day would be May 31.

Another employee, in an anonymous tip sent via email to The Bee on Wednesday night, confirmed the account of the layoffs, writing that there would be at least 238 layoffs.

Voxpro, which is based in Ireland, did not immediately respond to The Bee’s request for comment.

Voxpro founder and CEO Dan Kiely on Thursday said at a U.S.-Ireland business conference that Voxpro is hopeful for an initial public offering in the “not-too-distant future,” as reported by the Irish Times.
