The company said Boeing plans to cut staff in the aerospace company’s finance and human resources departments in 2023, resulting in the loss of about 2,000 jobs.

The company, which recently moved its headquarters to Arlington, Virginia, said it expects “significant growth” in its overall workforce during the year. “We grew Boeing’s workforce by 15,000 last year and plan to add 10,000 more this year with a focus on engineering and manufacturing,” the statement said.
The company said Boeing’s total workforce as of December 31, 2022 was 156,000 employees.

“Over time, some of our corporate functions have grown significantly. And with that growth comes bureaucracies or unequal systems that are inefficient,” Friedman said. “So we’re streamlining.”
