NEW YORK — McDonald’s said it is cutting about 225 corporate jobs as part of a push intended to revitalize its flagging business.

The world’s biggest hamburger chain said the cuts include about 135 positions at its corporate headquarters in Oak Brook, Ill., where it said it has about 2,100 employees. An additional 90 positions are being cut overseas, the company said. The company said that employees were notified last month.

The move comes as McDonald’s Corp. CEO Steve Easterbrook has said he will target $300 million in cost cuts by 2017 and reorganize the company so it can react more quickly to the changing fast-food industry.

As sales have struggled, McDonald’s has conceded that it failed to keep pace with changing tastes. In its flagship U.S. market, the company last month reported its seventh straight quarterly decline in sales at established locations.
