BlackBerry-maker Research In Motion (RIM) may slash around 2,000 jobs worldwide as part of a massive restructuring plan that will begin in the next couple of weeks,according to a report.
RIM is preparing for a major global restructuring beginning in the next couple of weeks that will see it eliminate at least 2,000 jobs across its worldwide operations, the Globe and Mail reported citing a person close to the company. The report added that the layoffs may cut even deeper.
RIM is the latest entity to announce layoffs after tech giant HP,which plans to axe 27,000 staff.
RIM,which has about 16,500 employees worldwide at present,had announced in July last year to reduce its workforce by 2,000.
The report said the layoffs would sweep across departments,ranging from legal division to HR.
