The first round of lay-offs at Orbit- Showtime has begun, DPME.com can reveal.
Sources close to the company claim that 140 employees at Orbit-Showtime’s Bahrain office have been notified although no official numbers have been revealed.
Orbit-Showtime refused to comment when contacted by DPME.com.
People in the commercial and marketing departments are said to have been the most affected although no one was available to confirm this.
No lay-offs have been announced at the newly-merged company’s Dubai office yet although this is also inevitable, unnamed company sources say.
This is only the first round of redundancies at Orbit-Showtime.
Two months ago, sources had told DPME.com that all employees were being evaluated and were told that redundancies would be inevitable in December 2009.
