Recortes de personal en el sector tecnológico

By Duncan Mil

January 20, 2023 - Al menos 1.000 firmas tecnológicas despidieron a cuando menos 154.000
empleados el año pasado, mientras que los recortes han continuado en
2023, con más de 49.000 despidos registrados hasta ahora este año.

Tech giant Amazon has started to axe over 18,000 jobs, the largest in its 28-year history, as the company looks to adapt to the gloomy economic outlook.

Andy Jassy, CEO of Amazon, confirmed the cuts to workers in its human resources and stores lose their jobs.

Many job cuts include workers on Alexa devices, the voice assistant launched in 2014.

Jassy told employees earlier this month: “Amazon has weathered uncertain and difficult economies in the past, and we will continue to do so.”

In addition, Alphabet will cull 12,000 jobs, while Meta will lose 11,000. Microsoft will cut 10,000 jobs, and Salesforce will lose 8,000 as the technology industry responds to slowing demand.
