Nokia Announces 4,000 Job Cuts
|27 апреля 2011|
Nokia has announced the long anticipate impact of its switch to the Windows Mobile platform on its workforce, and has announced that it will be cutting some 4,000 jobs by the end of 2012, with the majority of reductions in Denmark, Finland and the UK.
The company also announced that it will transfer its Symbian software activites, including about 3,000 employees to Accenture.
These measures are part of Nokia's target to reduce its Devices & Services non-IFRS operating expenses by EUR 1 billion for the full year 2013 in comparison to the full year 2010, as announced last week.
Nokia also plans to consolidate the company's research and product development sites so that each site has a clear role and mission. Nokia expects the expansion of some sites and the contraction or closure of others.
All employees affected by the reduction plans can stay on the Nokia payroll through the end of 2011. Nokia expects personnel reductions to occur in phases until the end of 2012, linked to the roll-out of Nokia's planned product and services portfolio.
"At Nokia, we have new clarity around our path forward, which is focused on our leadership across smart devices, mobile phones and future disruptions," said Stephen Elop, Nokia president and CEO. "However, with this new focus, we also will face reductions in our workforce. This is a difficult reality, and we are working closely with our employees and partners to identify long-term re-employment programs for the talented people of Nokia."
