PagerDuty (NYSE:PD) layoffs are on the way as the U.S. cloud computing company prepares to cut 7% of its workers in 2023.
According to a press release, these layoffs are set for the near term. The company also notes that this will see the company eliminate some roles while creating new ones in certain “cost-effective, high-talent geographies.”
PagerDuty says the following about its layoffs in the release:
“As part of the company’s ongoing efforts to drive efficient growth and expand operating margins, PagerDuty is advancing global scaling initiatives designed to increase PagerDuty’s capacity, growing quota carrying and engineering headcount, while improving its cost structure. The changes include reallocating certain roles and realigning teams to continue to improve operational resiliency and agility, and rationalizing the company’s real estate footprint.”
What’s Behind the PagerDuty Layoffs?
The economy has been weighing on tech companies. This comes as rising inflation and recession concerns reduce consumer spending. That in turn affects advertisers and several other connected companies.
PagerDuty isn’t the only company that has announced layoffs recently. There are plenty of other examples of companies reducing their headcounts due to the current economic situation. Investors will also likely see more of this kind of news in the coming months.
Today’s layoff news has PD stock down 5% as of Tuesday morning.
