“Around 100” employees made redundant, Saga confirms

Saga has confirmed that it has made “around 100” employees redundant.

This is despite it seeing underlying improvements in its first half results. An official statement from Saga suggests that the money saved from redundancies will be put into growth.

The official statement from Saga says: “We can confirm that the difficult decision has been taken this week to make around 100 employees redundant across the business.

”Like many companies, we review our structure on a regular basis and in taking this action our objective is to make the business more efficient, customer focused and sustainable in the long term. We have made good progress this year against our strategic priorities, including the launch of a Membership programme to reward our customers and the agreement to build a second new ship. The changes we have made this week will allow us to invest further in future growth. “
