Microsoft is establishing employment slashes on top of 10,000 dismissals

July 12, 2023: On Monday, Microsoft affirmed that it’s eliminating additional employment a week after the beginning of its 2024 financial year.

The cuts are in addition to the downsizing announced in January that resulted in 10,000 layoffs. The software maker also disclosed a small number of cuts this time the previous year. GeekWire reported on the latest cuts earlier Monday.

Amazon, Google, and different large technology companies have also scaled back this year after adding headcount rapidly to meet rising demand during the Covid-19 pandemic. Microsoft has stated recently that clients are looking for ways to save money on their cloud computing bills.

A Microsoft spokesperson refused to specify the number of cuts in the latest round. In January, CEO Satya Nadella issued a memo indicating the company would change its hardware lineup and consolidate leases.

Microsoft filed a notice Monday saying it would cut 276 people in its home state of Washington. Of those, 66 are virtual.

Salespeople and customer success representatives posted messages on social networks to announce they had lost their jobs.

“Organizational and workforce adjustments are a necessary and regular part of managing our business,” the spokesperson said in an email. “We will keep to prioritize and support in strategic development areas for our future and in support of our customers and partners.”
