According to this recent Yahoo report, Heineken will be cutting approximately 10% of its workforce due to the COVID pandemic.

Beer giant Heineken has announced plans to cut nearly 10% of its workforce after a sharp drop in sales due to the coronavirus pandemic.

It said 8,000 jobs would go, some of them at the head office in Amsterdam.

Heineken chief executive Dolf van den Brink said 2020 had been a year of “unprecedented disruption”.

Bars have been closed in many parts of the world, and some countries, such as South Africa, have imposed temporary bans on alcohol sales.

The company is the world’s second-largest brewer, with Heineken being Europe’s top selling lager. It also owns the Tiger and Sol brands.

Heineken’s restructuring plans were initially announced in October, although it did not say at the time how many jobs would be affected. However, the employee consultation process has now finished.

The cuts will affect less than 100 of the 2,300 Heineken employees in the UK, but jobs will go across the business.
