Nokia's Services & Software unit grows and focuses its efforts
Continued growth in investments in key Internet services areas
Nokia has started today relevant local employee consultations to discuss these plans. These plans concern approximately 200 employees - approximately half in Finland - working in the Services & Software unit. The aim is to find alternative solutions and work for as many employees as possible within Nokia, at which the company has a good track record from previous years.
"This year we plan to hire more people into the Services & Software unit than the number of affected employees, so we expect that many employees will be able to transition to new jobs within Nokia," said Niklas Savander, Executive Vice President, Services & Software. "We have made great progress with the initial offering this year and I see great potential going forward as we bring context aware Internet services to people's pockets. These changes will strengthen our offerings and enable us to accelerate the delivery of new Internet experiences to market."
