Although Accenture has been reported to be planning to lay off 19,000 employees over the next 18 months, the company has confirmed that their wholly-owned subsidiary, Accenture Federal Services, will not be impacted by this process. Accenture plans to cut jobs mainly in back office positions, but it’s business as usual for Accenture Federal Services, as they continue to offer to support federal contracts.
Accenture shared in their layoff filing, “While we continue to hire, especially to support our strategic growth priorities, during the second quarter of fiscal 2023, we initiated actions to streamline our operations and transform our non-billable corporate functions to reduce costs. Over the next 18 months, these actions are expected to result in the departure of approximately 19,000 people (or 2.5% of our current workforce), and we expect over half of these departures will consist of people in our non-billable corporate functions.”
Back in January, Boeing announced plans to increase their staffing levels by 10,000 this year. And in order to meet production needs, training and hiring are high priorities in building up the correct workforce. Boeing has been reported to be giving $10,000 recommendation bonuses to current employees for some positions – especially in Puget Sound, WA. Getting experienced aerospace professionals in the door is the key. At other locations, Boeing is reportedly offering $5,000 sign-on bonuses to attract some workers.
