Shopee Indonesia Lays Off Staffs to Focus on Business Continuity
Shopee Indonesia announced that the company is releasing a number of employees as part of an efficiency measure. Head of Public Affairs Shopee Indonesia Radynal Nataprawira said Shopee Indonesia had to take this policy hardly. This decision is the last step that must be taken, after making adjustments through several changes to business policies.
"Global economic conditions require us to adapt more quickly and evaluate business priorities in order to be more efficient. This is a very difficult decision," said Radynal, in a press release on Monday. Efficiency measures are in line with the company's global focus on achieving independence and sustainability, which are two important components in running a business amidst the current global economic uncertainty.
"We want to strengthen and ensure that our company's operations are stable in the current economic situation," he said. Shopee is committed to providing support for employees affected by this policy. The company will follow the provisions of government regulations. Employees will receive severance pay in accordance with statutory provisions and an additional one month's salary.
