In an effort to save expenses, Meta has reportedly started laying off employees and restructuring teams. In order to avoid labelling the adjustments as layoffs, the corporation is reportedly “quietly nudging out a considerable number of personnel” as it gets ready to make even deeper cuts.
How many Meta employees have been impacted thus far is unknown. based on the report. Employees only have a 30-day window in which to submit an application for a new position at Meta. As a result, “employees with good reputations and strong performance reports are being pushed out on a regular basis,” according to The Journal.
As Facebook faces with declining revenue in the midst of what Mark Zuckerberg has referred to as a “economic slump,” Meta has been indicating for some time that it will slash people and programmes. During the most recent earnings call, the CEO issued a warning that Meta will restrict hiring and require employees to “get more done with fewer resources.”
Recently, Zuckerberg informed staff that the company is experiencing “serious times,” and that managers should identify “poor performers” to eliminate. A few initiatives from the company’s Reality Labs business, which lost $10 billion in 2021, have also been cut. Also recently informed of job losses were dozens of Meta contractors working for an outside company.
