Jobs will go at BTA: Jones
Jobs will be lost at the Bermuda Tourism Authority as the organisation grapples with a second year of Covid-19, the body’s interim CEO said yesterday.
Glenn Jones said: “Like any travel industry business struggling into a second year of the pandemic, the Bermuda Tourism Authority is right sizing the organisation to ensure it is purpose-built for the tourism recovery.
“That equates to consolidating and repatriating certain roles, and in some cases, downsizing headcount.”
Mr Jones said the process had resulted in the promotion of “some Bermudian talent”.
He added: “This important and thoughtful strategic planning is not yet complete.
“We will update our stakeholders once the final HR plan is in place to meet the bold strategic objectives shared with the public last month.”
The authority said last April that cost-saving measures were needed to preserve its financial resources so it could lead the “restart of Bermuda's tourism economy out of this crisis”.
