American entertainment giant Warner Bros has said it will be outsourcing jobs to India. It is believed that about 200 positions are to be outsourced to India.
“While no final decision have been made internationally, the company expects the layoffs, elimination of open positions and outsourcing to affect nearly 800 positions worldwide, or approximately 10 per cent of its 8,000 employees,” a Warner Bros official told PTI in an e-mailed statement.
About 200 open positions and 300 outsourced jobs would be affected as part of the reduction, while another 300 employees would be laid-off, the official said, adding that jobs would be outsourced to India.
While the spokesperson declined to comment on exact number of jobs being moved to India, the sources said that about 300 positions are being outsourced, out of which about 200 would go to India and Poland.
Open positions are referred to those which are currently vacant and for which, the company was hiring.
