McLaren Buang 1,200 Perkerja Dari Keseluruhan Kumpulan

Pembatalan acara sukan permotoran, penangguhan aktiviti pembuatan dan runcit di seluruh dunia dan pengurangan permintaan untuk penyelesaian teknologi kerana COVID-19 telah memaksa McLaren Group untuk memotong tenaga kerja mereka di seluruh kumpulan perniagaan mereka.

Ini melibatkan seramai 1,200 profesional di bahagian pengilang, sukan permotoran dan automotif mereka. Dari pasukan McLaren F1 sahaja akan ada 70 kakitangan yang diberhentikan kerja. Pemotongan pekerjaan mewakili lebih daripada satu perempat daripada tenaga kerja kumpulan itu iaitu sekitar 4,000 orang. McLaren Group dimiliki oleh dana kerabat Bahrain Mumtalakat dan nampak gayanya negara kaya minyak itu ada masalah kewangan tersendiri yang harus ditangani sebelum menyelamatkan pelaburan mereka.

Berita di atas ini tidak menghairankan kerana McLaren Group membuat permintaan pinjaman bernilai £ 150 juta kepada kerajaan Britain dan itu tidak menjadi.

McLaren juga merupakan pasukan Formula Satu pertama yang furlough kakitangan mereka pada bulan April tahun ini kerana perlumbaan dibatalkan. Pasukan ini mempunyai kira-kira 800 orang, yang dijangka dikurangkan menjadi hanya 70 orang.

Oleh itu, bagi sebilangan rakyat Malaysia, persoalannya adalah, adakah ini akan mempengaruhi tarikh penghantaran kereta sport McLaren baharu mereka? Mereka perlu menghubungi peniaga Malaysia untuk mendapatkan pengesahan mengenai perkara ini. Buat masa ini, nampaknya penghantaran kereta mereka tertangguh hanya beberapa bulan dan ini kerana penutupan sempadan, rantaian bekalan bahagian, dan kilang.

Kenyataan Media: Due to the ongoing impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, as well as the new Formula 1 cost cap to be introduced for the 2021 season, luxury automotive, motorsport and technology company McLaren Group has commenced a proposed restructure programme as part of a wider business plan to ensure its long-term future success.

Subject to employee consultation, the proposed restructure is expected to result in around 1,200 redundancies across the Group’s Applied, Automotive, and Racing businesses, as well as support and back office functions.

Like many other businesses, McLaren has been severely affected by the current pandemic. The cancellation of motorsport events, the suspension of manufacturing and retail activities around the world and reduced demand for technology solutions have all led to a sudden impact on the Group’s revenue generating activities.

“We deeply regret the impact that this restructure will have on all our people, but especially those whose jobs may be affected. It is a course of action we have worked hard to avoid, having already undertaken dramatic cost-saving measures across all areas of the business. But we now have no other choice but to reduce the size of our workforce.”

“This is undoubtedly a challenging time for our company, and particularly our people, but we plan to emerge as an efficient, sustainable business with a clear course for returning to growth,” said Paul Walsh, Executive Chairman, McLaren Group.

“McLaren Applied has also already refocused to strategically prioritise proven, high-growth revenue streams,” he said.

On the Automotive side of the business, McLaren is due to start the first deliveries to customers of the 765LT supercar in October as well as its ultra-exclusive open-top speedster, the McLaren Elva, towards the end of the year.

“We have already invested in developing a new lightweight, hybrid vehicle architecture that will commence series production at the end of this year with the first deliveries to customers now due in early 2021.”

“McLaren Racing has been a proponent of the introduction in 2021 of the new Formula 1 budget cap which will create a sustainable financial basis for the teams and lead to a more competitive sport,” said Mr Walsh.

He continued: “While this will have a significant impact on the shape and size of our F1 team, we will now begin to take the necessary measures to be ready to run at the cap from 2021 onwards, in order to challenge again for race wins and championships in the future.”
