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

“I would guess that the way people are going to judge whether you trust me and want to work for this company is whether we’re going to be able to make progress toward the overall goals that we’ve set,” Zuckerberg said at the town hall. “I think a lot of this is about the results we can deliver.”

Zuckerberg was also asked about the company’s remote work plans. He said it might be an “ongoing conversation” but didn’t completely rule out a return to the office.

Another employee brought up the psychological consequences of layoffs for the company’s employees. Zuckerberg acknowledged that the uncertainty of announcing layoff intentions in advance is real, but added that “it’s not like we can just stop working while we figure it out.”
