Singapore’s Sea cuts more jobs at e-commerce unit Shop


Singapore-based e-commerce and gaming firm Sea is cutting fewer than 500 jobs at its Indonesian unit Shopee, Bloomberg News reported on Friday.

The latest layoffs affect full-time and contract workers in Shopee’s customer service team, the report said, citing a person familiar with the matter.

Sea did not immediately respond to Reuters’ request for a comment.

In September, Bloomberg reported that Sea cut 3 per cent of employees at the Indonesian unit.

The firm also laid off more than 7,000 people, or about 10 per cent of its workforce last year, according to an Information report.
