Nokia plans to cut 285 jobs at their Salo plant as part of their restructuring plan
While the world is still trying to reel off this economic downturn, it has forced Nokia to go through with their efforts of executing layoffs in attempting to stay competitive in the market. With that in mind, Nokia plans on cutting 285 staff workers from their Salo plant in Finland as part of their restructuring efforts – basically sharpening their eyes on the high end smartphone market. It's a lucrative business right now and filled with plenty of competition that has forced the restructure to go through after finding customer requirements had changed with a clear importance placed on smartphones. Nokia currently has 2,200 staff working at the plant and will attempt to be relocate staff elsewhere to other parts of the business by the end of June. Nokia senior vice president of markets Juha Putkiranta said: “Salo is a crucial part of Nokia’s global manufacturing network. Plans involving changes to employees are always painful, and they are set in motion only after thorough consideration. However, with these plans our aim is to ensure the plant’s future competitiveness and its special role as one best suited to the production of high value mobile devices.”
