Expedia completes another round of layoffs

These changes to its org will ready the OTA to ‘build the world’s most loved AI powered travel apps,’ the OTA says

Sep 7, 2023

Expedia Group has announced its decision to eliminate positions within its technology organization, marking the latest step in the company's ongoing efforts to reshape its workforce.

Key takeaways

  • This move follows a series of targeted layoffs carried out at various points throughout the year, and more extensive workforce reductions as part of a restructuring effort just prior to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic;
  • Despite these reductions, Expedia Group has continued to actively recruit for certain technology roles, taking advantage of opportunities created by the layoffs at major tech companies earlier in the year.
  • The company's workforce had reached a peak of over 25,000 employees in 2019, but by the end of 2021, it had reduced its workforce to 14,800 individuals, with nearly half of them occupying tech-related positions.
