(Reuters) – Amazon.com Inc (NASDAQ: ) said on Thursday that its annual planning process will extend into next year and that more role cuts will follow as leaders continue to make adjustments.

“These decisions will be shared with affected employees and organizations in early 2023,” Andy Jassi, the company’s CEO in 2021, said in a letter to Amazon employees.

Jassy added that the company was in the middle of its annual operational planning review, where it makes decisions about what needs to change in each of its businesses.

Amazon has not yet decided how many other roles will be affected by the move.

The online retailer on Wednesday laid off some workers in its appliances group, and the company still aims to cut about 10,000 jobs, including in its retail division and human resources, a person familiar with the matter said.
