Boeing to cut 2,000 HR and finance staff this year
Boeing intends to cut about 2 thousand employees this year, reports Reuters. We are talking about employees from the field of recruitment and finance, which will either be fired or reduced.
Boeing already informed, which, along with the reductions, intends to hire 10 thousand new employees in 2023. This is less than in 2022, when about 14 thousand people were hired. The company wants to increase the number of employees in areas such as the design and manufacture of aircraft.
Formerly Boeing's main competitor, Airbus announced about plans to hire 13 thousand employees in 2023. According to the results of last year, Airbus for the fourth time bypassed Boeing for aircraft deliveries: 661 aircraft versus 480.
Boeing completed 2022 with a loss of $5.1 billion, which turned out to be worse than in 2021 - then it amounted to $4.3 billion. Meanwhile, the company's revenue for the year increased by 7%, to $66.6 billion.
