ديزني تسرح 7000 موظف

By Ninian Carter

February 9, 2023 - شركة هاوس أوف ماوس (ديزني) أعلنت أنها ستسرح 7000 من موظفيها كجزء من خطة لتوفير 5.5 مليار دولار وتحويل خدمة البث +Disney إلى خدمة مربحة، بعد الإبلاغ عن أول انخفاض في عدد المشتركين منذ إطلاقها في 2019.

Disney chief executive Bob Iger says the entertainment giant is cutting 7,000 jobs (about 3% of its global workforce) in a major cost-cutting excercise to save $5.5 billion and make its Disney+ streaming service profitable – subscribers have fallen by around 1%, the first decline since the service launched in 2019.

Sales at its parks, experiences and products segment grew 21% to $8.74 billion, from $7.23 billion a year earlier.

Revenue for the segment that includes Disney’s movie business edged up 1% to $14.78 billion from $14.59 billion a year earlier.

However, the company’s direct-to-consumer business, which includes its streaming services Disney+ and Hulu, posted a $1.1 billion operating loss amid higher programming and production costs.
