According to Bloomberg, Apple has laid off about 100 contract recruiters who were responsible for hiring new employees for the world’s most valuable company.

Workers whose contracts were terminated were told they would receive payment and medical benefits for two weeks. Recruiters who are full-time employees were retained, according to the report.

Apple told the laid-off workers that the cuts were made because of the company’s current financial needs. CEO Tim Cook said last month that Apple would be “deliberate” in its spending.

“We believe in investing during the downturn,” said Tim Cook, quoted by Bloomberg. “So we will continue to hire people and invest in areas, but we are more deliberate in doing so in recognition of the realities of the environment. »

Earlier, tech giant Google warned its employees, warning them of layoffs if the results don’t pick up.

Google will have a ‘comprehensive review of sales productivity and productivity in general’ and that if next quarter results ‘don’t look up, there will be blood in the streets’, employees who work in the sales department of Google Cloud.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai said earlier this month that he was unhappy with the work of many employees. According to Pichai, productivity at Google is lower than it should be.
