Medio millón de despidos globales van más allá del sector tecnológico

By Ninian Carter

April 4, 2023 - Bloomberg ha monitoreado en seis meses más de medio millón de despidos en el mundo, que al inicio ocurrieron predominantemente en las grandes firmas tecnológicas pero que pronto se están extendiendo a otros sectores.

In 2020, when the Covid-19 pandemic locked down half the world, tech firms flourished as digital, remote workers helped keep the wheels of the global economy turning.

Now, productivity trends are returning to pre-pandemic levels, or even slightly lower, with once-booming revenues now in decline.

Bloomberg has tracked more than 500,000 job losses around the world since October 2022, mostly dominated by white-collar firms.

What began as a wave of layoffs among high-profile tech companies, is spreading, with the likes of McKinsey, KPMG, FedEx and Boeing cutting middle management roles and bureaucracy.

The burning question now is whether this is a temporary phenomenon or full-blown recession?
