PayPal announces major workforce reduction with 2,500 job cuts

PayPal plans to cut 2,500 jobs (9% of workforce) under CEO Alex Chriss, aiming to "right-size" for profitable growth in the competitive fintech sector.

PayPal announces major workforce reduction with 2,500 job cuts

PayPal Layoffs 2024: In a recent development, PayPal Holdings, a prominent payments firm, is set to trim approximately 2,500 jobs, constituting around 9% of its global workforce, according to a letter from the CEO, Alex Chriss, seen by Reuters on Tuesday.

PayPal Layoffs Reason

Chriss, who assumed the role of CEO recently, conveyed to the company's staff that the decision aims to "right-size" the organization, involving both direct cuts and the elimination of open positions throughout the year. The affected employees are expected to receive notifications by the end of the week.

"We are doing this to right-size our business, allowing us to move with the speed needed to deliver for our customers and drive profitable growth," mentioned Chriss in the letter, emphasizing the need for strategic adjustments.

In November, Chriss had signaled plans to enhance revenue beyond transaction-related volume, aiming to streamline the company and reduce costs.

PayPal has faced challenges with its low-margin business products, witnessing robust growth, while its branded products have encountered a slowdown, primarily due to heightened competition from tech giants like Apple.

Investors are closely watching Chriss, a former senior executive at Intuit, with hopes that he can stimulate a revival in PayPal's stock. The company's shares had declined nearly 14% the previous year, missing out on the broader sector-wide rebound in high-growth technology shares.

Notably, last week, PayPal unveiled plans to launch new artificial intelligence-driven products and a one-click checkout feature, showcasing efforts to stay competitive in the dynamic fintech landscape. Concurrently, rival Block, led by Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey, has also initiated job cuts as part of its cost-reduction strategy.
