Warner Bros. Unit Announces Layoffs Deadline
A unit of Warner Bros. has laid off a number of employees, Deadline.com reports. The cuts have been made in the DVD division of Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. The number of job cuts was not reported.
"We’re told that the cuts involved backroom functions related to the DVD supply chain; the disc business has been steadily in decline in the industry thanks to digital delivery. The cuts were to only about one-half of 1% of the conglom’s total global workforce that numbers about 8,000, were told, and Warner Bros is looking to relocate about half of the affected workers elsewhere in the company," the story reports.
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment includes the divisions Warner Home Video, Warner Bros. Digital Distribution, Warner Bros. Advanced Digital Services, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, Warner Bros. Technical Operations and Warner Bros. Anti-Piracy Operations, the piece notes.
