Amazon, an e-commerce giant, was forced to reduce its staff this week. According to unofficial data, it could impact up to 10,000 employees in different divisions. Andy Jassy, Amazon CEO and founder, admitted in writing to employees that further cuts would be made early next year.
According to Amazon CEO Andy Jesse, the company is currently forming a new plan each year, while management evaluates the need for further staff reductions. Andy Jesse explained that all departments and employees will be notified about the changes in their early 2023 letters. Direct supervisors will inform their subordinates as soon as the plan is approved for further reductions.
The head of Amazon says that the difficulties in the economy and the earlier stage of active recruiting are hindering the company’s ability to analyse Amazon’s business performance for this year. According to the letter from the chief, Amazon’s units in books and devices have been affected by the cuts, as well as the personnel structures and a few engineering positions. It is known that Amazon will continue to reduce staff in its stores and administrative personnel next year. Amazon is willing to offer all sorts of support to employees who have been fired, including assistance in finding new jobs and payments.
