Microsoft Cuts Costs in Mobile Division “Many” lose their jobs
As per latest reports Microsoft is laying off many of its employees related to its mobile division in multiple countries including Finland. Finnish publication Helsigin Sanomat claims that dozens of employees have been let go from the company. The report also claims that the company is handing out pink slips to employees in an attempt to curtail the expenses in its mobile division. The division saw a significant drop in the revenue last quarter.
“The job reductions were spread across more than one business area and country and reflect adaptations to business needs. We go through this process in the most thoughtful manner possible, with the deepest respect for affected individuals,” a Microsoft spokesperson told ZDNet in a statement. We’ve reached out to the company to check whether employees at Microsoft India are also being let go.
The report also says that some of the employees that are being let go are part of a marketing department created after the merger with Nokia’s Devices and Services team.Well since July last year, Microsoft handed out pink slips to 7,800 employees.
