If the current job cuts have you worried about your employment, it’s still unclear how many employees will be impacted by these.
The current economic slowdown is shaking the biggest tech giants. Amazon, Meta and Twitter are known to provide the best work culture and employee benefits. However, they’ve recently downsized their workforce in a bid to thrive amid adverse macroeconomic conditions. Things aren’t stable yet, and the companies expect to continue making cuts in the coming months of 2023.
Amazon reportedly laid off employees from its top departments, including the Alexa Voice Office and the company’s Human Resource Department. In an official public statement, Amazon CEO Andy Jassy confirmed that more layoffs would be coming in the following year.
“Our annual planning process starts in the new year, which means there will be more role reductions as leaders continue to make adjustments. Those decisions will be shared with impacted employees and organisations early in 2023,” Jassy said in his first public statement on layoffs.
Amazon’s CEO, Jassy, has said that the company plans to reduce its workforce. It is currently unclear how many employees will be laid off, but there will be a reduction in personnel “from our stores and PXT organizations.” The company aims to inform impacted employees early next year.
Earlier this month, Senior Vice President of Devices and Services Dave Limp also posted an official note on ongoing staff reduction in the company. “We recently decided to consolidate some teams and programs,” he wrote. “One of the consequences of these decisions is that some roles will no longer be required.”
Amazon has reportedly laid off 10,000 employees and it isn’t clear how many more people the tech giant plans to layoff. Press reports from earlier this year say that Amazon will offer a severance package based on their length of service, but some now fear it was just a trial balloon to see how many of their staff they could get rid of.
