Amazon Plans to Lay Off Around 1,000 Employees in India

E-commerce company Amazon plans to lay off around 1,000 employees in India as part of its biggest retrenchment exercise across the globe, according to sources. The company has announced the elimination of over 18,000 roles across the globe due to uncertain economic conditions.

The decision to eliminate 18,000 job roles across the globe will impact about 1,000 employees in India,” the source said.

Between the reductions, we made in November and the ones we’re sharing today, we plan to eliminate just over 18,000 roles. Several teams are impacted; however, the majority of role eliminations are in our Amazon Stores and PXT organizations,” Jassy said.

As of December 31, 2021, Amazon employed approximately 16,08,000 full-time and part-time staff. In November, Amazon decided to eliminate a number of positions across devices and books businesses, and also announced a voluntary reduction offer for some employees in its people, experience, and technology (PXT) organization.
