Nokia to Cut “Up to” 300 IT Employees

by Todd Haselton | January 17, 2013

Nokia on Thursday detailed plans to lay off 300 employees in its IT department as part of restructuring changes. “Nokia will offer employees affected by these planned reductions both financial support and a comprehensive Bridge support program,” the company said in a release. “These are the last anticipated reductions as part of Nokia’s focused strategy announcement of June 2012.” Nokia said most of those affected are based in Finland. 

In June, Nokia announced plans to lay off 10,000 employees around the globe, and said in December that it has plans to sell its headquarters for $220 million.
