goldman sachs layoff underperformers are at high risk
The Goldman Sachs Group, an American multinational investment bank and financial services company, is planning another round of layoff to fire underperformers from the company.
Goldman Sachs Layoff can affect underperformers in October, according to a report by the Financial Times.
FT reported on Thursday, citing people familiar with the matter, that the new round of layoff is a part of the company’s annual evaluation of staff. The layoff can impact the 1% to 5% of its workforce. Some employees in trading divisions can lose their jobs as soon as late October, according to the report.
In July, David Solomon, the chief executive officer (CEO) of Goldman Sachs, said that the company would resume its regular performance-based layoffs of employees.
In June, the company said it would take more painful steps to cut costs. Goldman’s managing directors were also called for a meeting. The bank also cut about 250 jobs in May, hinting more job cuts in the coming months.
In 2022, Goldman Sachs Layoff led to the elimination of 500 workers. The layoffs at the company were halted during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 and 2021.
