Under newly reinstated CEO Bob Iger, Walt Disney Co. announced a significant restructuring last month, eliminating 7,000 workers in an effort to slash $5.5 billion in costs and turn its streaming division viable. An estimated 3.6 percent of Disney’s global staff will be laid off.
The corporation will be divided into three sectors as part of a strategy to reduce expenses and give creative executives more control: an entertainment unit that includes film, television, and streaming; an ESPN entity that focuses on sports; and Disney parks, experiences, and goods.
