Fidelity trims more jobs, this time through layoffs
Just weeks after more than 1,500 Fidelity Investments workers accepted voluntary buyout offers, the Boston-based mutual fund manager is trimming its payrolls again. And the departures aren’t voluntary this time around.
A source familiar with the layoff plan said less than 1 percent of the national workforce was affected, as well as less than 1 percent of Fidelity’s personnel in Massachusetts. The company currently employs about 45,000 people globally, mostly in the United States. About 5,000 employees work in Massachusetts.
