Amazon India is laying off employees from its workforce as a part of a global restructuring process, reports Economic Times. Amazon had reportedly asked around 60 of its Indian employees from its recruitment team to leave the company, last week. Amazon in the days to come may ask more employees to leave the company.
Amazon confirmed the layoffs in India, saying it was a part of the company’s global process. “As a global organisation, we have recognised the need to organise our teams to keep us agile and help us use our resources optimally.
This has impacted a small number of roles within the company and we are providing complete support to the impacted employees, including the option of relevant internal postings and outplacement services,” a company spokesperson said, adding that Amazon continues to hire for multiple roles and currently has 4,000 job openings in the country, including several from previous years.
