According to a Microsoft spokesperson, the software giant notified some of its employees that they may be facing possible layoffs. This comes after a previous report on the firm’s reorganization of its sales structure as it attempts to place greater focus on artificial intelligence and cloud technology.
The notice is not unexpected as the reorganization was expected to result in some job losses.
In a statement to Human Resources, the spokesperson said, “Microsoft is implementing changes to better serve our customers and partners. Last week, we took steps to notify some employees that their jobs are under consideration or that their positions will be eliminated.
“Like all companies, we evaluate our business on a regular basis,” he added. “This can result in increased investment in some places and, from time-to-time, re-deployment in others.”
An exact number on those who will be affected has not yet been given by Microsoft.
