Intel plans to cut headcount to cut costs
🟦 Intel’s cost-cutting restructuring?
Intel has announced that it will work to reduce costs by up to 10 billion dollars (about 1.5 trillion yen) per year by 2025. We plan to reduce costs by 3 billion dollars in 2023 in stages and expand to 8 billion ~ 10 billion dollars per year by 2025. Some of them will reduce costs by reducing the number of employees and shortening the hours of employees working at the plant. It is rumored that it could cut 20% of its 114,000 employees.
