According to a recent survey from U.S. Bank, CFOs have positioned theselves decisively in defense mode. Specifically, the survey of over 1,400 finance leaders found the top two priorities are cost controls within the finance function, which rises from the eighth highest priority in 2021, and cost controls across the entire business.
In the U.S. banking industry, for example, to manage expenses, PNC Financial Services Group has commenced job cuts across both its geographic footprint and its business lines this week.
Besides, US-based Banking-as-a-Service (BaaS) fintech Synapse has slashed 86 jobs, or 40% of its workforce, the second time it’s doing so within this year.
Blockchain forensics firm Chainalysis is also conducting a second round of layoffs this year, letting go of around 150 employees or a little more than 15% of its staff.
Further, Accenture, which focuses on information technology services and consulting, has started the third round of layoffs in 2023, shedding around 350 of its headcount in Austin.
