"Today's changes are part of Nokia's constant renewal where it isimportant to be close to our customers and ensure that our people areable to focus on the key business priorities. Also, our aim is to findalternative work within Nokia for as many employees as possible," saidJuha Äkräs, Senior Vice President, Human Resources, Nokia (pictured).
