Estee Lauder to cut 2,000 jobs

February 06, 2009|Times Wire Reports

Estee Lauder Cos., the maker of Clinique and Bobbi Brown cosmetics, said it would cut 2,000 jobs as declines in makeup and perfume sales reduced second-quarter profit.

The job cuts, about 6% of the workforce, will occur over the next two years, the New York company said. That and other measures, including inventory reduction and a freeze on hiring and merit raises, will reduce expenses as much as $550 million over the next four years, Estee Lauder said.
