Microsoft fires 15,000 people on January 15th?
Such a cutback would translate into a 17% reduction Microsoft’s global workforce of 90,000 people. Fudzilla’s sources indicate that MSN will take the brunt of the layoffs and the company’s EMEA region will be hit harder than any other geography.
While January 15 has been the target date for potential layoffs for some time there is doubt whether the company will indeed announce cutbacks on this day, exactly one week before its quarterly earnings call, and whether Microsoft will really fire 15,000 of its employees – which would be the most significant layoff move in the firm’s history.
