Why Microsoft Cutting Jobs in Structural Adjustment


After its fiscal year ended on June 30, Microsoft Corp. restructured business groups and roles, which resulted in some job cuts on Monday. It stated that it intended to continue hiring for additional positions and end the current fiscal year with more people employed.
Less than 1% of the 180,000-person workforce was affected by the layoffs, which were spread out geographically and affected a number of groups including consulting and customer and partner solutions, according to the Redmond, Washington-based corporation.

There weren’t many role eliminations today. Like other businesses, we regularly assess our business goals and make structural changes as necessary, according to a statement from Microsoft sent by email. In the coming year, we plan to keep putting money into our company and hire more people.

As it makes adjustments for the new fiscal year, Microsoft has recently announced job layoffs just after the US holiday of July 4. The business said that the worsening economic situation was not the cause of the layoffs, but in May it also delayed hiring in the Windows and Office groups.
