Expedia will cut 3,000 jobs to simplify ‘bloated’ business

02/25/2020| 12:44:56 PM| 中文

Expedia Group will stop certain projects and activities, reduce the use of vendors and contractors and eliminate approximately 12% of direct workforce.

Expedia Group Inc. said it’s cutting thousands of jobs, striving to simplify the “bloated organization” and return the online travel giant to more disciplined growth.

The staff reductions will affect about 3,000 employees, including 500 people in Expedia’s Seattle-based headquarters, said Josh deBerge, a company spokesman. The workers will begin to be notified this week. Expedia didn’t tie the job cuts to effects of the coronavirus, which executives earlier this month said added “uncertainty” to the company’s profit outlook.

“Today, Expedia Group announced our intent to simplify how we do business,” deBerge said Monday in a statement. “This includes stopping certain projects and activities, reducing use of vendors and contractors and eliminating approximately 12% of our direct workforce.”

Expedia announced the job cuts in an email to its global workforce, which numbered 25,400 as of Dec. 31.
