Due to the poorer business result caused by the coronavirus pandemic, Booking com has started restructuring its business.
Booking.com has announced that it will lay off up to 25 percent of its employees globally, approximately 4.000 employees, and the fact that Booking.com recorded a 91 percent drop in bookings in the last financial quarter clearly shows the poor performance.
It was also announced that they are closing at least five of their offices around the world, in Washington, London, Cambridge, Toronto and one office in Croatia, ie Split.
Unfortunately, we can confirm that the employees in our Split office have been affected by the global business restructuring announced in August, Booking-com reports, adding that despite this, Croatia remains an important market for Booking.com.
“The changes in business are part of the global restructuring announced in August due to the devastating impact of the COVID-19 crisis on the travel industry and our business. Due to the significant reduction in travel around the world and the small chances that the market situation will be the same as it was before the COVID crisis in the next few years, we, unfortunately, like many other companies in the travel sector, will have to further restructure our business organization. new conditions in the travel industry”Point out from Booking.com and emphasize that they still focus on supporting all their partners through this crisis and after it by providing them with support and necessary services at all times.
The Zagreb office of Booking.com continues to work, which is important information, both because of the desk in our language and the whole supports.
