Delivery Hero Lays off 250 employees


Spain’s Glovo, part of Germany’s Delivery Hero (DHER.DE), said on Monday it planned to lay off 250 workers globally, citing a drop in orders and inefficiencies after the COVID-19 pandemic drove a hiring surge.

The layoffs, which will mainly affect Glovo’s Barcelona offices, represent a 6.5% reduction in the company’s global workforce. “The layoff decision largely impacts the company’s headquarters in Barcelona in areas such as business support functions, recruitment and data,” Chief Executive Oscar Pierre said in a statement.

“The current macroeconomic situation, with rising interest rates and inflation, lowers the purchasing power of consumers, and some choose to order less often,” Pierre said, adding that “our vision and strategy have not changed”.
