Ensemble Travel Group is laying off approximately 50% of its
workforce due to the coronavirus crisis.
CEO David Harris called it “one of the most difficult
decisions a CEO has to make.”
“While Ensemble is a solid company, there is just no way to
minimize the devastating impact that Covid-19 has had on our industry in such a
short period of time,” he said in a statement. “Our employees are an integral
part of our business, but the reality of the moment is that life as we know it
is on pause with travel being one of the hardest hit economic sectors.”
The CEO said he hopes the action is temporary.
“Of course, we hope that everyone heeds the advice of the
professionals and stays safe and healthy,” he said. “At the same time, I know
we all look towards brighter days for our industry and our company, and hope
that these difficult but necessary measures will help position us to recover as
quickly and efficiently as possible.”
