Zuckerberg Fires More Than 11,000 Employees And Plans To Hire People In 2023

The firm is cutting more than 11,000 jobs, or roughly 13 percent of its workforce, according to Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg, in what amounts to the corporation's largest employment reduction.

In a message to staff members, Zuckerberg said, "Today I'm sharing some of the toughest adjustments we've ever made at Meta."

"I've chosen to let go of more than 11,000 of our excellent workers to lower the size of our workforce by roughly 13%. We are also reducing discretionary spending and extending our hiring freeze through Q1 to build a leaner and more effective firm, Zuckerberg stated.

Beginning with Covid, as the globe quickly shifted online and the e-commerce boom led to outsized revenue growth, according to Zuckerberg, led to the decision to lay off staff.

The macroeconomic slump, greater competition, and advertisements signal loss within the company, according to him, have resulted in revenue that has been much lower than he had anticipated.

I want to accept responsibility for these choices and our current situation. I'm sorry to those who have been impacted in particular. I know this is difficult for everyone. Added Zuckerberg.

Because the firm plans to hire fewer people in 2023, Zuckerberg claims that Meta is making cuts across all of its organizations, but hiring will be particularly severely hit. With a few exceptions, the business kept its employment ban in place throughout the first quarter.

There is no avoiding the fact that this is a terrible time. I want to express my gratitude once more to those who are departing for their contributions to this establishment, he continued.

According to Zuckerberg, impacted workers would be paid for 16 weeks in addition to two more weeks for each year of service. Meta will cover their insurance for six months.
