The US aeronautics company Boeing plans to hire 10,000 employees in 2023 for its business unit and for engineering and manufacturing jobs, a spokesman told EFE on Friday. The company hired 15,000 people last year, up to 156,000, and with this new increase in staff it seeks to stabilize its operations, increase production and invest in innovation, the spokesman, Connor Greenwood, excluded.
“This talent is helping us design, build and support the next generation of aerospace and defense products for our global customers,” he added. Boeing emerged in 2022 with its fourth consecutive year of losses, derived from the 737 MAX crisis and the subsequent economic crisis derived from the covid-19 pandemic, a complicated stage from which it is beginning to recover.
The aeronautics increased its turnover in 2022 thanks to higher orders and new aircraft deliveries, and plans to increase production of two of its star aircraft, the 737 and 787 Dreamliner, in the coming years. The news comes a day after its European rival Airbus, which has gained ground on it during this time, announced that it plans to hire some 13,000 workers around the world this year to ramp up its production.
