Swedish luxury watch manufacturer Daniel Wellington has announced to cut about 200 jobs worldwide, which corresponds to 15% of the global workforce. Sweden (Daniel Wellington-2022- SE) and other locations are affected. 243 people work at the Stockholm office and half of the them will be dismissed. Cuts will be made across all departments and functions. The company has long tried to avoid layoffs, but needs to cut costs because it has been facing years of financial difficulties and losses and aims to become a smaller company with better conditions for profitability. In 2020, it recorded a loss of SEK 504 million.

Founded in 2011, Daniel Wellington currently employs 1,300 people worldwide.
