Amazon India unit reportedly plans to lay off hundreds of employees
Just like several companies, Amazon India is also likely to sack hundreds of employees. The move is said to affect approximately 10,000 people across corporate and technology.
While the exact number is still unknown, the layoffs could go “deeper” than a few hundred given Amazon’s sizeable workforce in India, reported Economic Times.
“There is a sense it might be relatively higher as compared to peers like Meta-owned Facebook and others where India was not affected in a big way,” the report added.
This came after Amazon’s local arm in May revealed it generated total employment of over 1.1 million, comprising indirect and contract jobs. However now, their global layoffs would be the largest in Amazon's history, and would primarily impact its devices organisation, retail division and human resources.
Besides Amazon, Meta, Disney, Twitter and several other tech companies around the world announced thousands of job cuts as part of their cost-cutting efforts.
