Boeing plans to cut jobs in its aerospace company’s finance and human resources departments in 2023, which will result in the loss of about 2,000 jobs.
“We expect to reduce approximately 2,000 jobs through a combination of job cuts and layoffs, primarily in finance and human resources,” Boeing said in a statement issued Monday.
“No one has been notified of job loss, but we will continue to share information transparently so that people can plan ahead.”
The company, which recently moved its headquarters to Arlington, Virginia, says it expects to “significantly increase” its global workforce this year.
“We added 15,000 Boeing employees last year and plan to hire another 10,000 this year with a focus on engineering and manufacturing,” the statement said.
Boeing will have a total workforce of 156,000 as of December 31, 2022.
Boeing, one of Washington’s largest private sector employers, plans to outsource about a third of the retired jobs to Tata Consulting Services in Bengaluru, India, according to the Seattle Times. is.
Mike Friedman, senior director of communications, told The Times that the remaining positions will be eliminated as the company cuts back on financial and human resources support services.
“Over time, some corporate functions have grown quite large, and with that growth comes bureaucracy and inefficient systems,” says Friedman. “So, rationalize”.
The Times reports that about 1,500 of the company’s roughly 5,800 finance jobs will be cut, and up to 400 jobs will be cut in human resources, about 15% of the division as a whole.
