Boeing to cut 2,000 office jobs in push for productivi­ty


Boeing is to cut 2,000 office jobs in the US as the struggling plane maker battles to improve its stalling production line.

Roughly a third of the 2,000 roles are to be outsourced to India, says The Seattle Times, with the remaining positions going completely.

A spokesman for Boeing said: “Some of our corporate functions have grown quite large. And with that growth tends to come bureaucrac­y or disparate systems that are inefficien­t … So we’re streamlini­ng.”

Boeing has been hit by supply chain problems and production delays as it struggles to keep up with deliveries of planes. The tragic crashes of two of its 737 Max planes in 2018 and 2019 cast a long shadow over operations.
