LivingSocial to Eliminate 400 Jobs as the Deals Company Charts a New Path Forward

LivingSocial, Inc. announced that it plans to eliminate 400 employees, roughly 20% of its workforce, part of a broader corporate restructuring as its new chief executive tries to plot a path back to growth. The job cuts will bring LivingSocial's headcount to roughly 1,600 worldwide and 400 in the District. The latest round of terminations will affect about 100 local employees. The latest round of layoffs are different, however, in that they mark the beginning of a strategic shift for the seven-year-old company. Past job losses were driven primarily by a need to slash costs, and the decision to close or divest business units in some foreign markets.
