Amazon now plans to dismiss 20,000 employees; Deets inside

In the earlier days, we heard that Amazon was laying off 10,000 employees and now, the company is going to dismiss a total of 20,000 employees in the company. It will be firing people across several regions and these are distribution center workers, technology staff as well as corporate executives. The lay offs are likely to take place in January. The company plans to fire people at all levels, including senior most employees. 

The company managers have reportedly been told to assess the work performance of employees, so that Amazon can start the lay off process of about 20,000 people. The e-commerce giant would be dismissing 6% of corporate staff, and nearly 1.3% of Amazon’s 1.5 million workforce, which even includes global distribution center and hourly workers. The corporate staff have already been alerted that the impacted employees will be sent a 24-hour notice and a severance pay. 

It was recently announced by the company’s CEO that the lay off process would continue for a few months and that the impacted employees will be informed once the company assess everything. So, the number of reductions might have been increased as it is rigorously reviewing all the departments across the regions. 

The CEO said, “Our annual planning process extends into 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. We haven’t concluded yet exactly how many other roles will be impacted, but each leader will communicate to their respective teams when we have the details nailed down. And, as has been the case this week, we will prioritize communicating directly with impacted employees before making broad public or internal announcements.”
