Nutanix CEO Rajiv Ramaswami announced to reduce global headcount to 6000 employees and lay off 2.5 percent employees globally in sales and marketing teams. He made the layoff announcement during third-quarter results on Wednesday.
The US-based cloud computing company has over 6200 employees in January 2021, and 2.5 percent lay off in global employees count would mean nearly 155 employees will be laid off.
Rajiv Ramaswami, CEO of Nutanix, said, “Efficiency is a vital part of profitability. We have increased go-to-market productivity, including more efficient digital marketing spend, increased leverage of the company’s channel partners, and optimized employees in market opportunity-based geographies. As a result, we have decreased the company’s global headcount by 2.5 percent from sales and marketing teams as we continue to refine our go-to-market model.”
The layoff will add 50 million USD in annual savings for the company. Employee layoffs were mainly around where the company had excess coverage in specific market regions and creating room to drive renewal sales, he added.
