Can I say like this? How do we say things like this more naturally? The company is not making enough profits this year and starting to layoff some employees. The company is not making enough profits this year and starting to layoff some works. The company is not making enough profits this year and starting to fire some employees.

The most professional/formal example is the first one. The second one is incorrect. And the third is technically correct, just normally considered to be more 'harsh' with the use of the word 'to fire'.

The first example you gave is the closest to being correct but I would make a few small changes: "The company is not making enough profit this year and is starting to lay off some employees". You could also say "the company has not been making...and has started..". "Profit" should be uncountable so no "s" and "lay off" should be 2 separate words. Hope that helps :)
