Another round of layoffs will be conducted by Spotify. This time, as part of a business restructuring, the employment layoffs will also affect the podcast division.
In an internal memo, Sahar Elhabashi, Spotify’s head of the podcast division, announced that the company wants to combine Parcast and Gimlet Studios, in particular.
The development follows hot on the heels of just a few months that Spotify announced a significant wave of layoffs.
According to Elhabashi, the change will affect around 200 jobs and those who are impacted have already received an invitation to talk with someone from the HR department.
“We are expanding our partnership efforts with leading podcasters from across the globe with a tailored approach optimized for each show and creator.
“This fundamental pivot from a more uniform proposition will allow us to support the creator community better,” Elhabashi wrote.
Spotify promises that employees who are affected by the layoffs will get “generous severance packages, including extended Healthcare coverage and immediate access to outplacement support.”
