Swarovski will eliminate 600 jobs as part of a restructuring.

The Austria-based crystal maker is merging marketing and sales that were distributed across various units, according to media reports.

The company said 200 jobs will be cut in the Tyrol area where it has its headquarters.

The COVID-19 pandemic helped prompt the decision to reduce staff.

CEO Robert Buchbauer said the company was “hit hard by the crisis” and saw sales enter a “massive decline” in the first quarter of this year, Fashion Network reports.

In particular, the company cited lower demand for its products in the U.S. and Asia.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
