Oracle (NYSE:ORCL) layoffs are worth checking out on Thursday as investors keep track of companies cutting employees.
Just like many other tech companies recently, Oracle has also been laying off workers. The latest round of layoffs from the company saw Oracle cut 201 workers from its cloud division back in October.
Those layoffs aren’t as major as some would expect, considering Oracle Cloud Infrastructure has more than 10,000 employees. Even so, it’s worth noting as recession fears have investors closely watching tech stocks.
While Oracle’s latest layoffs are from October, some investors are expecting more in the near future. That wouldn’t be too surprising. Several other tech companies have also been laying people off lately.
ORCL Stock: Hiring Is Slowing as Well
Insider sources have claimed that Oracle is slowing down hiring as well. While not an outright hiring freeze, managers at the company have reportedly been given strict restrictions on adding to the company’s headcount.
This is having the same effect as a hiring freeze and it’s unknown how long it will last. Employees at Oracle are also worried that it means more layoffs are on the way.
ORCL stock is up 3% as of Thursday afternoon but down 11.5% since the start of the year.
