Deloitte US faces 900 job cuts

The US firm's spokesperson said Deloitte was looking to cut costs 'just like anybody else'

Deloitte US is to axe 900 employees as it adjusts to a slowdown in the
economy.

The US firm’s spokesperson, Deborah Harrington, said the firm was looking to
cut costs ‘just like anybody else’.

The cuts are expected to affect less than 2% of Deloitte’s 45,000 employees
but will not be concentrated on any particular location.

‘In a move to align its workforce to better reflect business and client
needs, Deloitte LLP is taking a number of steps to reduce costs, including
adjustments to its workforce levels in the United States.

‘The cost-containment program is taking place across all support functions
and client service units. Part of the plan is to align our headcount according
to current and projected revenues. Like our competitors, we are affected by a
number of economic events, including the overall slowdown in the U.S. and global
economies,’ the firm said in a statement.
